Please Meet Simonette, Emma and Miss Josie

Greetings everyone!
I hope that each of you dear readers had a wonderful Holiday! We were blessed with a brand new baby boy on Dec. 11 which I am still thanking the Good Lord for. : ) For those of you that follow my art blog too you know that I love to paint girls with bird cage dresses. So, I have been searching long and wide for a way to simulate those cages from my paintings into my dolls. And, aha, an old, light bulb cage appears to have done the trick.

I used an old, wooden salt shaker for her body and a attached some porcelain, vintage doll arms.

Doll making has been such a pleasant journey for me. Much like painting, the process is constantly evolving and I have been trying to create dolls that I have seen in my paintings and in my dreams.
Vintage lace and buttons embellish the skirt.
This is sweet little Emma.
I love the material of her skirt...I have had it for some time and have never used it until today.
And, finally, Miss Josie. Her body is an old candlestick. I love how she turned out.

Thank you for your visit! Please come again when you can.
: )


  1. how nice! i like how you use all of these interesting pieces to construct them!

    thanks for stopping by, and your kind words about our johnny...

    have a great weekend,

  2. These dolls are so the pinks...

    I lost all my baby weight by nursing for 2.5

    I gain so much! But the brown fat is for nursing..if you are not or stopped nursing it can cause the weight to just stay. The HCG is great but it is a new experience and takes a bit of work and committment to learn and make it a new life style of eating and listening to the body and all....

    This is a cool web on healthy eating and even baby food I think.

  3. Oh they are beautiful! Happy Holidays!!!


I appreciate each and every word you leave here...thanks for stopping by!!!
