One of my favorite doll artists is my sister Maggie. She is not only a talented artist she can spin a good yarn when she has a mind to.  

A while back she created three shelf sitter dolls as part of a challenge for Art Doll Quarterly and all three were chosen to appear in the magazine.  My favorite of the three is an adorable fellow who she calls the Egg Man. From the first time I saw the Egg Man I was smitten. He's so perfect I can't find a single thing about him I'd want to change. He's home now and Maggie has posted his story and some photos of him on her blog.  Here are a few photos of this amazing fellow.

Maggie has listed him in her Etsy store and I'm betting he won't be there long.

To see more photos of the Egg Man and read his story head on over to Off My Rocker.

Life is keeping me busy. Summer is over and there's a lot to things to take care of so I'm ready for those long winter months. Where I live winter seems to last forever so I'm doing as much as I possibly can outside now because it won't be long before all of this wonderful sunshine is gone. I hope you're enjoying your day and as always, thanks for stopping by.

How sweet of you to post about my Egg Man, Maddy! I love your dolls, too!
LOL, Jan, I had that story running through my head the whole time I was creating The Egg Man!

I just love her work too!

The sunshine may be diminished for a few months but I hope you enjoy the snuggly candlelight of Autumn and Winter. There is beauty in all seasons . . .

Loving the egg man, how cool!

Funnily enough a friend and I were just chatting about how we don't want it to be winter yet!

Maggies Egg Man is awesome! He has the look of a vintage toy, yet a sophistication about him as well! Congrats to her on getting published again with the shelf sitters..I can see why her work was chosen! You two sisters have SO much talent! When I see your Santas I am taken back too Maddy, the vintage feel is actually refreshing! Have a great weekend, Thanks for poppin in to see the FaeWees* xoxo Christel

I truly agree about the Egg Man. I totally love him myself. I especially love that entire autumn scene with him in it. Wow!

That had to be such an exciting time for Maggie. Though none of you know it, you sisters are truly special and bring the rest of us some real pleasure in life.

I really need to get outside and take care of some things myself. Girl, I just cannot seem to find the time or energy for everything. Seems to be a recurring theme for me. Hmmmmm. Sending you tons of love, my sweet friend. Mina

Your sister's Egg Man has a lovely expression on his face - he seems quite at peace with his place in the world.
