Dear sweet readers,
I have neglected this blog so desperately. And, yet you have stayed and haven't left me despite the fact that I only posted a few times during the entire last year. (I did also have a second baby who just turned one). Those of you here know that I LOVE to create dolls. Dolls that are, mostly, from found objects, old spools, vintage light cages, porcelain doll arms, old salt and pepper shakers...and then I hand paint their faces and sew their little clothes. But, I am also a painter and so I created this blog to keep the two separate. But I have found that painting and making dolls are so much a part of me that I would like to put them all together.
Whew! So, with that said, I will CLOSING this blog within the next month. But, NOT before I say THANK YOU with a lovely give away!!!
This little lovely was created from a very old wooden box with some lovely worn, red paint still on the sides and back. The body is 1 part old chandelier part, 1 part vintage child's toy block, 2 parts paper mache and fabric wings and 1 part hand painted wooden face. I have embellished the top and bottom with vintage lace, paper and old book pages. The entire piece stands 8" X 5". I have placed her next to my Christmas decorations for this picture but she isn't Christmas~y at all. There is wire attached to the back for hanging or you can place her on a shelf.
