Fertile traditions

In honor of Beltane, here is a website about handmade fertility and spirit dolls from Eastern Europe. Most of them are cloth, have a folk/primitive style and include miniature knitwear. I think they are rather pretty, and the details of information like why certain traditional trims or objects are included is interesting, even if you don't believe in the magical aspects.
