Southern Ooaks Magical and Mystical characters tour....

Welcome....so happy that ya'll came back for the tour of another hall here at Southern Ooaks. Today we will be going to the magical and mystical hall. Be warned though...there are some charcters here that might just steal your heart. ^_^  Some will be seen for the first time during this tour, others will be ones that already have rooms. Which means you can knock on the door click on the link under the photo and be taken directly to them. Enjoy and thank you for visiting us...we love company!!!!

This lil darlin is Dealan-de (pronounced dalan-day. Scottish gaelic for butterfly). Have you heard the saying, "Every cloud has a silver lining"? Dealan-de is that lining. She is the keeper of the........Butterflies of course. A very important job in itself. Have you ever tried to keep a butterfly in one place...not an easy thing to do but Dealan-de accomplishes it quite well. She has a special magic...one that allows her to softly whisper to the butterflies...to keep them close by...until it's time for her to send one down to earth. These are very special butterflies. They are the carriers of hope, of love and of memories. Dealan-de has the magic to hear our feelings. Once she hears a heart that needs a tiny bit of reassurance..she sends them a butterfly...a memory....a feeling of love or that much needed feeling that there is hope.

Dealan-de is one of my gently poseable ooaks. She has a strong wire armature that is covered in wool yarns. Her face, hands and feet were sculpted using Prosculpt clay and then detailed using acrylic paints. Her costume is made from ribbons, felts and yarn. Her hair is made from feathers. Her butterflies are some of my hand embroidered ribbons. She sits at 6 inches on her cloud. The base is a vintage sterling silver trinket holder.








I hope that you have enjoyed your tour today. I so enjoyed taking you on it. Thank you for visiting....you are always welcomed here....anytime...our door is always OPEN!!!
Until next time.....

Hugs,
Regi
