This was in the Summer 2008 issue of Art Doll Quarterly magazine with article of "The World of Appleshire".

Fiona is one of the older residents of Earthgate village. Her love of flowers started at a very early age. She spent many of her younger years traveling and searching for rare and unusual plants. Wanting to know more, she became dedicated to study and experimenting which eventually led her into developing special herbal medicines and potions that earned her the title of medical mystic. These later years are filled with magical potions and raising and selling the most beautiful flowers in all the village.
Fiona has a soft sculpted body with head and extremities of Prosculpt clay, mohair hair and brown glass eyes. She wears a soft cotton dress with knit jacket, a soft velvety hat and leather shoes. Her gloves are sculpted and her basket is a gourd.

Isle of Appleshire Series

Tommy is now a resident of Korwood Forest and although his family, like many of his species, are very social, they are known to travel long distances to visit others who live in heavily treed areas on the island. He is an English Nutter and, as you might not be knowledgeable about these little beings, I will fill you in on a little of what I know. When they are born, they are so tiny that they fit into half of a nut shell. In fact before they are born, the parents MUST have their shell prepared. They spend there time in the shell until they are big enough to wear it on their backs. This is to protect a large hump that holds their magical powers. They live in the hollows of trees which are often decorated with shiny objects that they find irresistible.
