two posts in one day!
Couldn't wait to tell you about the ladies... my pin doll ladies and the real ladies who made them.
Doll Street has a pin doll swap every so often but this is the first time I've participated. Click to see all of the pins. Can't tell you how excited I was to see my own handwriting on the self addressed return label, on my own box the mailman delivered today. The same little box I used to send off my ladies to the "swap meet".
Silly me; must be an old softie...I have no idea why, but tears crept into my eyes and I couldn't even read the cards telling me who had taken the time and thoughtfulness to create each beauty! What an unusual and wonderful thing to be able to exchange a bit of ourselves with total strangers who have done the same for us.
You can't see it from this angle, but "love sings" travels around the side of this little gal.... her face is clay.... the little applique heart is felt.
This face is also clay and her headdress is extensively beaded... what a lot of stitching is involved in each of them. I have a great interest in eyes as anybody seeing my own faces knows... so the eyes on this one really intrigue me.
I will treasure them both and thank you so much Linda Misa and Susie McMahon ... both of my little ladies traveled all the way from Tasmania, Australia to Canada. Don't worry, when it gets to -30C here..I will wrap them in cotton wool!
