Simplicity Rules

I have said it before in my article on "Where is Waldorf": the world of Waldorf style dolls has become cluttered with detail. They tell me if I want my business to survive I must add: ears, noses, chins, dimples, rainbow hair.

I cling to my love for the simpler doll. Here is a photo of one of my pocket dolls without eyes, hair, blushed cheeks. Isn't she beautiful?



She fits perfectly in the palm of a little hand.


Here are some quotes on simplicity by some famous folks.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” 
   Leonardo da Vinci
    
“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”
   Henry David Thoreau, Walden and Other Writings
    
“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
 
I rest my case.
