Arethusa loves flowers and spends a lot of time out exploring looking for the prettiest flowers she can find. She disguises herself as a butterfly to avoid being seen or caught by humans. Arethusa loves to show children that she is a fairy, she loves the look of bewilderment and excitement in their eyes. Their smiles and sound of their laughter makes her heart sing. Arethusa only visits gardens filled with flowers and she used to visit thousands of gardens during the spring and summer months but sadly the beautiful flower gardens she used to search for are becoming less and less every year. Without flower filled gardens, Arethusa's people are struggling to survive. Arethusa is entirely hand made and hand painted. Her wings are machine embroidered along with the front panel on her dress and her skirt. She is jointed at the hips and shoulders, and like all of our dolls, her hair is from our trusted eco friendly and vegan source.
