The Great October Fetch Giveaway

Edited October 21/18

The person welcoming home Jade is... RheaWhite!

Do follow Polly in her assorted haunts on the web to see more of her divine art.

As for me, I've had house guests, corn mazes, and too much autumn fun this weekend, and now I'm off to dream of popcorn balls and candy apples... You'll have to wait just a few hours longer for the next giveaway - it will be posted tomorrow morning (October 22nd)!

 ********************************


Bring me all of your dreams, 
You dreamer, 
Bring me all your 
Heart melodies 
That I may wrap them 
In a blue cloud-cloth 
Away from the too-rough fingers 
Of the world.

The Dream Keeper, Langston Hughes


This next giveaway is something very special, and one of my favourites for the past three years. The extraordinary Polly Lind has created an enchanting creature for a very lucky someone to adopt. Polly is a fabric artist living and practicing her art in New Zealand. She creates designs centered around folklore, nature, spiritual practices, and whatever moves her own creative spirit.

This year, Polly introduces us to Miss Jade Islington Hawthorn.

"Jade Islington Hawthorn was born during that time of awake and sleep, where your deepest wishes and dreams are hidden.

Her power resides in the elusive place, where dream memories slip from our minds, as we rise into the waking world. Jade has abilities to help you find the way through the realms of the dreamtime both sleeping and awake. And she will guide you when you are ready to manifest your dreams into this world.

In her bag she carries white sleep sand that she acquired from the sandman, she has maps of both the waking and dream realms, as well as a tarot deck that she uses as a guide to see your deepest dreams.
she has a dream journal, a key, a letter from home, a lace parasol to shield you from the falling nightmares"


"Miss Jade Islington Hawthorn is a hare Fetch, She stands at 21 inches tall, and is wearing a white dress and socks, white, silver, black and gray satin boots and white hooded cloak. she has a lace parasol umbrella, a kete bag (woven bag) with cloud and a silver key attached. In her bag is a rolled up map, and a folded map in a white pouch. a bottle of white glitter dream-sand, a deck of major arcana tarot cards a dream journal and a letter from home. and an authenticity certificate."


Miss Jade is singular and extra special because Polly is no longer taking custom orders for the Fetches (or Faeries or Poppets) she makes. Instead she will be creating her own creatures twice a year or whenever the spirit moves her. Do keep up with her on social media or at her website to hear news of her creations!
