Once, long ago a fairy was cursed to be an ogre for ever. She was a beautiful fairy but as an ogre she was hideous. Her heart stayed fierce and pure and after many years as a cursed thing she died giving birth to a small ogre daughter with unruly black hair and a beautiful lavender eye.
...this is the story Oona tells me anyway, I'm not entirely sure about it myself, although Oona does have the most gorgeous purple eye. Oona likes spinning tales and lies spill from her mouth like wildflower honey. She tells me the ribbon she wears is for the Foxglove and Belladonna she grows in her Poison Garden. She also tells me its a ribbon for cookery that she is a great pie chef, though I'm not sure there is such a thing, but she does like to help out in the kitchen when cakes are being baked or potions must be made.
Oona is another primitive style monster, she is made from linen, cotton, polyfil, vintage buttons, a vintage doily, a snip of lillalotta ribbon, black yarn, thread, and love. She was stained with a mixture of italian espresso grounds, vanilla, and cinnamon.
"What cares I for human hearts? Soft and spiritless as porridge! A fairy's heart beats fierce and free!" (Oona in the film Legend)
Oona is now listed for sale in my etsy shop.
