Antonella the Sunflower Carrier Folk Art Doll

Antonella is the Sunflower Carrier. She was present during the very first existence of Sunflowers in Tabasco, Mexico and since that glory filled day so long ago she has carried them far and wide. It became loved by many for its numerous uses and is known to some as the fourth sister, to the three sisters of corn, beans, and squash.

But aside from all the uses that exist for the sunflower, Antonella knew that this beauty was a Sun Goddess in her own right. She carries its seed in her pockets, planting and spreading the beauty wherever she travels.

The Red Haired Sleeping Mermaid

Kammie, the Red Haired Sleeping Mermaid, is full of dreams and stardust. While all of her other mermaid sisters are constantly swimming, playing, working, and taking adventures up top to see the humans....Kammie's favorite thing to do is....napping.

You see when she was a wee baby mermaid she used to travel to the top with her sisters on adventures. One night as she was sitting on a rocky bank, a shooting star came drifting down through the skies and gently landed in her lap. She was glittered with stardust and soon fell asleep with sweet dreams of beauty and happiness. When she woke she was completely refreshed and felt perfect happiness. 
The stardust became a part of her, making her slumber times a journey to another world where she had her own exciting adventures.
And so today, more times than not, when you see Kammie...she is sleeping with a smile on her face.
