Where Did You Get The Mike & Sheila Family?

I have gotten a few inquiries about the little wooden dolls that I have been using in the silly adventures of Mike & Sheila posts. They were made by one of my favorite artists--her name is Michelle and her Etsy shop is Goose Grease. I am an avid collector of her custom wooden dolls. I'm sure this comes as a great surprise that I collect things. I have a cabinet that is getting full of her work. She's bound toward fame--having had her doll creations featured in LMNOP magazine and soon on Martha Stewart's "The Art of Wedding Cakes 2" so if you want to order your own set, I would suggest doing so now. The customer service is excellent.

The Goose Grease dolls are wooden and made with non-toxic paints and finishes. Michelle makes all kinds of character dolls, custom families to look like yours (or the one you wished you had) and wedding cake toppers. Below are a few examples of her fabulous work. I have to warn you that you won't be able to order just one.

  1. I've bookmarked her in Etsy. Thanks!
    They're very, very charming.
    And your photo stories with them always make me smile/laugh. Poor Sheila!
