Mrs Esme Hyacinth
Hyacinth for short! :0)
Last thursday, when browsing through my favourite blog haunts, I happened to linger a little longer on a certain blog and an idea was born :0) The blog was Adora Bella minis and I emailed Joy to ask if she would kindly put me on her waiting list for a little character to be the shopkeeper in Woolembees.
My brief for the shopkeeper was;
'The little story of Woolembees;
When planning it, I had in mind a little box of Highland Heather soaps, so I have centred my main colours around pale lilacs, blues, sage greens and heather pinks. I can imagine a shop like this tucked away down a little lane, away from the main hustle and bustle. The shopkeeper would be a kind, older lady with a 'lived in' look about her face and a tad rounded in figure!'
I said I was in no hurry, I knew Joy was busily working on another commission, so you can imagine my surprise and delight when I opened my emails Sunday and there she was, all ready, it seems I had fired an idea for Joy too:0)
Well.. Mrs Esme Hyacinth arrived in the post this morning and she is absolutely perfect for Woolembees. Thank you so much Joy :0)
