dear erika,
i send you pictures from your doll, we went to toronto (canada) and after some sightseeing i decided to put her in the entrance hall of the canon theatre (where for example billy elliot is shown) on a phone box, hoping that someone interested in culture and art would take her.
this was on sunday afternoon, so lets see if she will show up again.
actually it was not easy to make a decision where to leave her šŸ˜‰ !

yours sincerely

travel 1Ā° Astrid and Kathrin from Tyrol/Vienna

February the 11th 2011

dear erika,
i send you some pictures from your puppet, she travelled from the riesenrad in vienna and the pony-horses to tyrol in western austria, where she spent some great sunny days in the mountains of tyrol. on the first picture you can almost see her, she is hiding a little bit, but you, as you made her, of course you will see her imediately.

the doll will have now one week off and then go to – surprise ;-), where i will leave her for the next willing person to take her along.

i hope your idea will be successfull, i actually would love to hear maybe once again where your doll went after i left her in …, i will send you some more pictures from there.

have a great weekend
yours astrid

hello erika!

iĀ“m sorry for not writing earlier but i had a lot to do with my baby and therefore I couldnĀ“t send pictures of your lovely doll.

I met erika in january in Museumsquartier. we were out for a walk with the dog and the baby. she was sitting there alone and i thought someone forgot her. when i came closer i saw what a nice and lovely doll she ist and thatĀ  she was wearing a little paper. so I took her with me and decided to take her for a ride with the giant wheel in Vienna because i thought she might like that. and she did – as you can see on the picture.

i went there with my sister and her daughters sonja and jasmin. I wanted to leave her inĀ  the giant wheel but erika didnĀ“t want to stay there decided to take sonjas hand and leave giant wheel again with her new friend.

this is where my story with erika unfortunately ends and a new one began.

I hope to get some news from you about her story.

many greetings from Vienna and sorry again for being that late…


Once upon a time …

This story starts in Vienna …. no, better,
the story starts in Imola, small town of Italy, on april the 25th 2010.

Pencils and something to sew, a bit of imagination and Mrs Tea Potter has born.

About her future I didn’t know a lot, but the certain thing was that I had to give her to someone because I don’t use to keep my works.

So the first idea was to give her as a gift, and for that reason Mrs Tea Potter, this is my doll’s name, had her first travel to Vienna, in Austria.
Unexpectedly the chosen person wasn’t there and bringing back the doll with me seemed to be so sad that, excited of my holiday and beautiful things I was doing, I decided to leave her in a very cultural and cool place, the Museums Quartier.

This is me, saying goodbye to her.

After having seen Klimt, Schiele and other incredible artists, the only thing I wanted was to stay in contact with art and different cultures. The only way I had was to let my doll travel for me and meet people all over the world.

The pics below show my last moments spent with her:

So I’ve waited about 3 weeks till I received an e-mail from Astrid! such a big surprise! Find out where the doll was then!
