Fleur’s foot

Fleur did not make the move from our old house to the new one unscathed.

Fleur is a wooden lady of advanced years – I carved her more than 30 years ago, and she has some fragility about her nowadays.

Tottie Tomato and the Story Door Dolls heard that Fleur and her foot had had a parting of the ways during the move, and so they were rather concerned.

They came by to offer their wishes for a successful re-attachment….

Some glue, a little wrapping and a sincere apology on my part for packing her so badly, all seem to be helping.

Clover Bee, the Story Door Doll that is on the left hand side of the first picture also came to say farewell to Fleur, as she was about to head off to her new home just after Fleur’s fancy footwork.

Tottie Tomato and the Story Door Dolls didn’t stay long, as Fleur needed to rest and allow the glue to work it’s magic.

(We hope…..)

  1. Wooden dolls and their feet are often parted, in my experience! I wonder if that has anything to do with the shape of Peg wooden feet? I am certain Fleur is in good hands!

    • Her foot was jointed, and sadly, one of the little supporting bits decided that it had had enough of being supportive. Fleur now has one jointed foot and one fused šŸ™‚ At least she is no longer foot loose LOL!

    Healing happens in so many ways, doesn’t it?

    • Healing is an astonishing thing. Sometimes, something that feels terribly uncomfortable can be the source of a huge, unexpected healing. We are so blessed. And, I am grateful. And, quite swept away by awe and wonder very frequently!
