We have a magical craft yurt that you may have seen on social media. In there, we make magical Metaphor Doll dioramas and clothes and paraphernalia.

Dolls and clothes sold as shown, each comes with one bundle of sage, and one jar of salve.

We really can't vouch for the condition of the dolls under the uniforms. They were all purchased second hand, forlorn and abandoned at flea markets, and we clean them up best we can, but their hair is not that important to us because it's always under veil. These women have had hard lives. They might have stretchmarks or scars, they might have markings from some cruel tormenter. Just saying.

‘Metties’ are the name of the Sisters of the Valley craft-yurt doll collection, hand-made from recycled materials. All* of the dolls were rescued from flea markets, naked and forlorn, cleaned up, given good clothes, a roof over their heads, great food, and purpose-driven lives.

We named them ‘Metties’ because they are metaphors for throw-away people. (Think World War II ‘Betties’). We know America can do a better job of taking care of our poor, and those in crisis. We use these dolls to bring awareness to the existence of throw-away people as a shame to our society and a challenge to a problem we must end.

*we were unable to find ‘throw-away’ dolls of color and must always purchase those new as they are more rare.

Why blue?

As the enclave grew and it became impossible to make all our uniforms by hand, we found that the color of our order was not so easy to find. Because of the challenges and expense involved in purple fabric and purple uniforms, we gravitated to a more easily available blue. Our original images from 2015 and 2016 show, however, that we were pretty devoted to our purple.

Purple is the color of suffering, purple is the color of devotion and it is also the color you get when you blend the red and blue of our bi-polar political system. That's why it's our color.

We are farming sisters, like many of the Sisters who have gone before us.

All diorama's are made out of 99% recycled materials.

We reserve the right to substitute on certain pieces of clothes, but you will get everything on the list, promise!  (it's a rare occasion that we must substitute and we will let you know so you can confirm or modify or cancel your order)
