Extreme Makeover...Blog Edition!

Well not quite but I decided it was time for a change. The new banner is courtesy of Sandy Wood from Sam I Am. She pretty much just whipped it together for me. She is SO easy to work with...hey...she put up with me!! So if you are thinking of a makeover...visit her.

The flu is going around my house so I haven't posted in a bit. Hoping to get back in the swing of things soon.

Happy Spring!! Hope you are feeling sunshine wherever you are.

I don't "do" Spring

No I don't. I'm not a bunny, rabbit or bunny rabbit type of gal. I don't do Spring shows...I don't make Spring dolls...or at least I didn't used to.

I think my aversion to Spring goes back to the early days of doll making...I think I scarred myself 15 years ago. I "bunnied out". Since those days I have avoided Easter baskets, floppy hats, Spring flowers (which I love), and most of all...bunnies. But this year, due to some pressure from some very wonderful people...I decided to do 1 or 2 Spring pieces. Well lo and behold...1 or 2 pieces turned into 3...4....5 and more. They multiplied like Bunny Rabbits!

So here is the last of my Springish Spring...promise. Well at least until next year. It was fun!!

These pieces will be added to my available page tomorrow.

So very girley

I found this lovely old beaded purse at an antique market a few months back. I decided a little girl in pink with wonderful millinery flowers would be just the right thing to slip into it. I had so much fun making this that I went on a terror collecting small vintage purses and I am working feverishly to create a whole line of purse dolls. What I love most about these are that each purse has its own personality, wear and tear. I wonder how many evenings out they enjoyed along with their owner. What restaurants and dance halls they frequented and what beautiful gown did their owner wear?
Watch for witches, pumpkins, santas, angels and more everyday purse pieces coming soon.
