Stuffed Elephant Doll, Hand Knit; Sweet Isabella

$128.00

Isabella is a hand knit elephant who is a little smaller than the other two elephants. From her seated position she measures about 8 1/2″ tall. She is knit from a soft, worsted-weight yarn that is 80% acrylic & 20% wool. Her eyes have been hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss and she is stuffed with polyfil stuffing. I’ve knit her a sweet white sundress that will be just perfect for Spring. She wears a pretty, matching white bow tied over one ear with her favorite lavender-colored flower tucked into the bow. Over one arm she carries a matching white knit bag that is filled with her favorite lavender flowers like the one tucked into her bow. Both Isabella and her clothes may be gently hand washed if necessary, using warm water and a mild soap, then laid out to air-dry.

Winter has tucked into the Garden and with it, comes the slower pace and quiet routine of time spent working inside, rather than out in the garden.

With the arrival of the new year, I was thinking back over the past year, recalling all of the new arrivals to the Garden and marveling over my good fortune to have such wonderful little creations appear in my garden. With Spring just around the corner, I found myself wondering who would appear next. Usually the advent of Spring marks the beginning of a steady season of excitement. New creatures appear frequently and the Garden becomes a constant whirl of activity.IMG_1580

A heavy knock on my door jolted me from my daydream. Winter had brought snow, and with it, the wonderful peace and quiet that comes from knowing everything is secured under a thick blanket of heavy white. Who would be knocking at my door now, I wondered as I went to find out. With a knock like that I knew it had to be someone very large like~ ? I opened the door to find a rather embarrassed-looking elephant standing there. It was Alexamder. He immediately apologized for knocking so loudly saying he hadn’t realized it would make a loud echo, as it had. Then he just stood there. I told him I didn’t mind at all, in fact I was happy to see him. He kind of shuffled his hooves nervously back and forth now and then looking over his shoulder behind him- at what, I didn’t know. From where I stood, I couldn’t see much over Alexander’s back but the tree tops and the sky.

Then, as he was shuffling, I heard a very soft, “La, la, laaa,” singing that seemed to be getting closer. Alexander looked quickly behind him again, then back down at me and met my eyes. “Who is singing?” I asked him. “That’s who I came to talk to you about,” he answered. And Iearned about little Isabella, our youngest – and smallest elephant. Apparently, Isabella has been here almost a month without my knowing about her. Afraid that maybe I would turn her away if I found out I had yet another elephant to feed, the other animals decided they should wait awhile before they told me about Isabella, but Isabella is a carefree little spirit who likes nothing better than to skip around with her flower basket over her arm, collecting flowers and singing “La, la, laa~” Alexander said he was afraid I’d hear her or see her before they could introduce her so he decided he needed to tell me about her now.

Isabella is such a sweetheart! I could never turn her away.She brings sunshine to a cold winter afternoon with her soft singing and light-hearted playful skipping; she is a real joy and a wonderful start to my new year!~IMG_1572

Isabella is a light-hearted, happy, child personality who brings sunshine and smiles wherever she goes! Because she’s a knit doll, she isn’t intended to be a young child’s rough play toy. She does however, love gentle hugs and would be a great companion for an older child who knows how to play gently. She makes a great collectible and heirloom piece, as well as adds warmth and personality to any room’s decor. She would be an adorable addition to the decor of a child’s room. Isabella is loaded with personality! One of a kind and heirloom-quality, Isabella definitely makes a very lovable and special gift that you’ll be delighted to give to a favorite person. young or old!          IMG_1578
