Asteri lives in the flower beds in a large park, near the center of the town. No one pays much attention to the beds of flowers that are throughout the park. Asteri, and her fellow Kukka Sprites are extremely speedy. Just when you think you’ve seen one of them, you blink and they’re gone! During the times when people aren’t in the park, Asteri works hard to clean-up the flower beds. She finds any trash or debris and takes it to the trash bins. Asteri also makes sure that the drip lines that the landscapers placed among the flowers don’t get clogged. It’s a lot of work, but Asteri enjoys it a great deal. She loves sitting below the cool, green leaves of the plants and watching people walk their dogs, and the children laughing and playing. When winter comes, Asteri hibernates in a safe place hidden in the park, waiting for the warm sun and flowers to return.

Kukka (Koo-kah) is the Finnish word for flower. There really isn’t a good translation for the word sprite though. A sprite can be described using the words elf or fairy, but these dolls are not elves or fairies. They are sprites. These dolls are more like a guardian or a spirit, than an elf or a fairy. For me, the only word that described them was sprite, so I decided to call these dolls Kukka Sprites.

Asteri (AH-ster-ee) is Finnish for Astor.
