The Bee Child

What a delight
We kept bees for 15 years
I was inspired to make this mixed media creation
A Waldorf knitted doll, with a straw hat, there is a bee on her hat
I think she is a sweetie
She is standing on a little wooden stump
A Straw beehive, with wool bees on it
And the base is wire and grass (fake) with wool bees
It measures approx 11inches by five inches

Love and light  Marie


  1. Ah fabulous! This is wonderful! My Dad kept bees for years too. We had floaty bits of wax in cups of tea. These are sure to be a hit!

  2. Thanks Louise, it is more likely to be a one of a kind, but yes, we loved our bee hives.

  3. Gorgeous Marie, where did you get the pattern for the knitted bee child - I'd love to have a go at making one myself. She is very sweet indeed.

  4. bee-autiful! Sorry, someone had to say it :) I love the little hive. Bear wont let me keep bees since I'm allergic; but I do enjoy fresh honeycomb and wax from a local bee keeper. How lucky you are. Take care.

  5. Very pretty doll, I love the little bee skep and her straw hat! :)
