Unfortunata (otherwise known as Maude)







At times the Governessa gets it wrong and steals one that will never be.




Hungry soul Maude, was ravenous and longing, for just one tiny nibble of a shiny black Raven Apple.




But not for nothing are they called Raven Apples. For no sooner than she reached up to pluck one from the gnarled branch, down swooped the raven to pluck out her eyes.
Poor Maude dropped dead of fright on the spot with not a morsel on her lips.




The unfortunate one was banished to spend eternity at the point of no return for her indiscretions. 

Is that light at the end of the tunnel?
I'm afraid not Maude!

Wow. She is absolutely gorgeous. You inspire me to work harder on the tiny dolls I'm starting to work on. :)

Melanie!!! You're doing my mother's thing again. I refuse to believe that there isn't a way back for poor, sweet little Maude. Point blank refuse. I'll go and fetch her myself if I have to.

Athena, thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing your new dolls.

Oh no there isn't! Sorry Jeff, I do have a rather cruel streak ;)

Signe said...

Maude is so adorable! She is just the cutest thing yet. Your work gets better and better with each little one you create. I also love the bone you've added to her little outfit.
Have a beautiful and magical weekend!

Awwwwwwwww! I just want to protect the poor little thing. This is what I feel most of the time when I see your dolls. They remind me of a bird that has fallen of the nest.

Alicia said...

Anthropomorphica said...

Evelyn, I'm delighted that you love Maude, I must send you a bone!!!

I think she could do with a little protection Patricia and a hug Alicia. Thank you, I think nest fallen birds suits them!

Thank you Lakhsmita, knew that picture belonged to a witch ;)

She is Lovely! Oh Maude, you look so sullen.

Róisín said...

She really is like a little lost bird, isn't she? And yip, I get the urge to hug her too. She looks so sad :'( Poor, lovely wee Maude.

Anthropomorphica said...

Thank you Nicomi and Roisin, she could do with a bit of love, poor dear!

Darling Maude~a wee moonsnail, in honor of you, lives here ... (as we speak, she is sending you little light rays ~.~) *kiss hug & love*

Anthropomorphica said...

;) Shayna, you've made Maude's eternity. She wondered where those silvery beams came from.

Anthropomorphica said...

Oh dear Bloodandthistle, you were resting all this time in a nasty spam file! Dear Maude never told me her last name but Ravenapple would be appropriate seeing as she couldn't resist...
