Pretty Posh Posie Dolls!

I am so excited about these new dolls that I've been making!
They are very special to me,
I just can't stop making them!
They are all made of paper mache for
their jointed arms and legs.
And they are dressed in vintage or recycled fabric
and bits and pieces.
But the best part I think,
are their faces.
Below you can see what I mean!
Big starry eyes and sweet bow mouths.
This one is called Josette.

She has raven black hair and a black and cream dress.
She would be wonderful sitting with Halloween decorations
or any time of year!

Next is Autumn.

She has fiery fall colored hair and vintage millinery

in her hair.

Plus, she is wearing a dress made of a vintage apron.

Last, is Peony.

She looks fresh and pink

with pink floral dress

also made from a vintage apron.

Each doll is signed and has a posie on one of her palms.
(as you can see below)

I decided to list them on Ebay at low starting prices

so everyone can have a chance

owning one!

bye for now!

Hanging out with Sponge Bob

Yesterday was a day of rides and fun
at the Mall of America
Nickelodeon park.
First Daddy and daughter went on the swing ride!

Then we all hopped aboard the ferris wheel.

Thankfully my stomach can still take it!

Of course, Sabrina never misses out on the carousel!

Hope you had a fun filled weekend!
Bye for now!

Zoo Safari

We headed to the Minnesota Zoo the other day
and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

The otters amused!

The bear was very relaxed!

The leopard was tense.

The prairie dogs alert!

The carabou were on parade!

Daddy and cutie pie and.....

me too....

......were entranced by the bird show!

and the magical butterfly garden!

Bye for now!

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
