Bunny Girl

I'm still here.  Working slowly, a bit too slowly.  Things are changing and I am getting ready for the changes.
This is Bunny Girl.  She is made with a Vintage Bonnet Head German doll head dug from the ruins of the doll factories in Germany.  I added a cloth body and molded hands and feet.

Isn't she sweet dressed in vintage lace.

Bunny girl measures about 6" tall.  The entire piece is 9.5"tall  x 6" wide.

She is riding a treasure of mine that has been repainted and a wood base was added.  She is ready to be adopted on e-bay this week.  
My seller name is lel2952.  She is listed along with a few of her friends.

I love working with these vintage doll heads that have been underground for so many years.  Each one speaks to me, asking to be made into a doll to be put back out there into the world for someone to cherish.

Little Red and Santa Girl

Here are my 2 newest creations, Little Red Riding Hood and Santa girl.  I had so much fun creating them both.

Little Red Riding Hood is made from a vintage German broken head doll dug from the factory ruins in Germany.  I gave her a body and papermache hands and feet. She is about 6" tall.

She and her doll are dressed in vintage linens and laces.  The cape is made from red flannel. Her doll is made from a vintage broken German frozen Charlotte dug from the factory ruins in Germany.

Little Red has it all under control for this visit, and has the wolf pulling her wagon.

She even is daring enough to go for a ride!
The piece measures 13" x 7"

Santa Girl
This piece came together as if by magic.  

Penny and her friend Baby Cupid are off on an adventure to surprise their friends.

Penny measures about 6" tall.

The piece measures 11" x 6".

Come check them out on e-bay.

My Lovely Bones Icicle

Have you read The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold?  It was one of those books I didn't want to read yet I had to finish.   Not a favorite, yet it did make an impression.
If you did, remember the part about the icicle of death?  My house has one of those. It is HUGE.  HUGE!!!!!!  It is right where I park my car.  When this one comes down, I am afraid it will do some damage to whatever or whoever is in the way. 

There are a few wires going into my house, but my biggest fear is that it will hit ME as I get into my car. Today will be a bit warmer with rain, and either increase the size or it will fall off. 
I'll keep you updated.

Oh for those who didn't read this book, and want to know what I am talking about, this is it.
A little girl was murdered at the beginning of the story. The case was never solved even though the little girl could look down from heaven and see him.  In the end her killer was walking beside a building, and a huge icicle broke off at that very moment stabbing him and he died.  Then it melted away.  The perfect murder. The question was always did she have anything to do with this murder or was it a coincidence?

Penny enjoying the snow.

Gotta have a Penny photo as she is the only one loving this weather in my house.

Sneak peek

Here is a sneak peek at what I am working on this week.  Can you guess what they might be?

This one is kind of easy.  Can you guess?  A wagon and  who is driving it?

What can this one be?  A cute reindeer, and a basket filled with toys.  It's not as easy as it looks.

This is my dog Penny, 9 months old.  She realized this morning that freedom from the yard is just one leap away.  We have so much snow, my fence is not doing it's job.  I just happened to be out there with my camera this morning as she made this discovery.

I can see I will never be able to let her out alone until the snow melts a bit more.
