"Love this turtle!"

It is very well made and the detail and colors are wonderful. It's a little hard to take apart if you want to use it as a place to store jewelry or whatever ... and as a storage container, it is a bit small. But I bought it just as an interesting and vibrant decoration.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!


The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
