It all began in 2014 with a small handmade calico doll who lived in a handsome wool felt nest. I had designed and made the dolls and nests to sell at local craft fairs.
“Beautiful as they are, my darling,” chirped my husband “how will you market them?”
“Mmm” thought I “I’ll give them names.”
So, the enchanting dolls were given names such as Spiderwort, Butterfly pea, Frogbit and Fleabane and they lived in the trees of a very secret place called Mossycup Wood.
It wasn’t long before all manner of goings on were happening in Mossycup Wood and soon I had written pages and pages of these goings on.
“But” I say to myself “I have the tales about the tiny Pogglewitt folk but only I have seen them and I can’t draw a thing let alone paint.” Or so I thought…
By this time, it’s 2016. “Enough is enough!” I cry. “I will learn to draw and have a go at painting.”
Two years later Emma Dunne Ltd is formed and we, myself and my very enthusiastic and encouraging husband, are very proud to be able to offer you our enchanting collection of Mossycup Wood fine bone china, kitchen linen, greetings cards, and the all-important Tales of Mossycup Wood picture books.
We hope you’ll have lots of fun on your journey into Mossycup Wood.
