Nuno felt dolls show you around my place- Stanley

I've added some more collection of my nuno felt dolls recently just wanted to experiment different chiffons entanglement with wool . I've to name these now borns. Is Nuna sounds pretty? OK, let me call it Nuna.

They're made of ceramic or paper clay bodies, rope limbs, wool+chiffon hats and dresses. Interested please read my previous post of how to make it.

Let Nuna Orange shows you Stanley where I've my little studio. We went up the trail to the mid of the hill. All year round there're lots of wild flowers. I don't know the names honestly. Some fruits of them are edible.
野牡丹花 Melastomaceae are typically everywhere in the mountain.
Stanley is on the south of the Island. The British and Canadian troops made their last stand before surrending to Japanese troop during the Battle of Hong Kong in 1941.
It is now a little district mixed with different elements. Down there are prime houses for the rich, government houses for grass roots, barracks for PLA (People's Liberation Army of China) even prisons. Surrounding is peaceful, beautiful with lushes and jade clear beaches.

Months ago there're lots of white wild camilia now become fruits. Things change from thriving to fading or verse versa.

These mini wooden houses in sculpture were only recreated in accordance to the original squatters on the hill side some decades ago. This was the artwork displayed in the corridor to show the historic development of the area by school project. Thanks to FYK Memorial School.

In the 90's the hillside of Stanley were full of squatters. After some years of transformation it become a well developed and harmonic area both for local and tourists. On sundays I love walking up the trails to have a breath breaking view.

Strolling along the waterfront is pleasing.

Main Street with lined bars and restaurants is packed with tourists on holidays.

Tranquil with fishing boats.

Nuna Orange is tired after some steps. Let's call it a day. Wanna to home? This will be going to J. A special wish for her.

These are waiting to somebody's home on special occasions.
Nice week to YOU. Until next time.
