ARMATURES

Due to my kidney issues, I have to put my legs up more now I decided while doing so to experiement with making armatures and hand sewing the bodies of the dolls............I am using the old cabbage patch double knit fabric (that I have too much of still) and it is actually turning out very well.
I have made 9 bodies so far, different sizes and shapes.........here they are in the basket .





















Here are the hands almost done, next the heads.

CINDERELLA MOVIE

I have not seen the movie yet but intend to. Our Downtown Abbey, Miss Rose makes a beautiful Cinderella..........bravo!

DECORATING MODE

If I did not become a doll artist I wanted to be an interior designer.......I love to decorate. I also love bargains, I have expensive taste with a beer pocket book if you will............but I will conquer for sure.
My latest endeavor and purchase was this lamp at a thrift shop..........love those shops. My best bud Rose Portman and I go to them whenver I go to visit her..........I love, love, love this lamp.























I am doing some research to find some information on the style
and period......but for now I am trying to decide which lamp
shade I like best, I have two........I do believe I will be using
the rounded shape one..........#2 will be adding to the shade of course.


STUDIO REDO ~ PART FOUR

As you probably figured out by now we are in "HOUSE MODE" redoing and or fixing, I love it.
Next is putting it all back in which I am still working on..........this is the old white dresser I was telling you all about. I am adding fabric to the top of it, currently working on this. Later on may paint pictures on the dresser, not sure just yet ..............stay tuned for more in a week or so.l

STUDIO REDO ~ PART THREE

As you seen in the previous photos I had those awful gray metal shelving units, I have had them for about 20 years and so sick of them...........hate them.
So I was on the look out for that fabulous cabinet I showed you all in the beginning...........well luck have it, on line there is a site called "Dunnellon Buy, Trade, Sell" which is where I live in Florida.
So I started surfing the site and guess what I not only found one but two............... FIRST PHOTO,
I bought online and we picked it up about 15 miles from here. I bought this gorgeous piece for only $30.00, I near fainted away, can you stand it................lucky this time.



The SECOND one you see the shorter one I bought, same place, m
aybe 10 miles from us......that one was more $70.00.......not bad.





















I was not putting those gray shelves back I only want furniture looking
pieces in there..........the next piece I robbed from our den, as we did
another project there. ( I will show that later on)
This is our old Television Unit, so its perfect for my studio. The only other
furniture piece is an old white dresser .........
