Playing with dolls

I loved playing with dolls when I was younger. I had a Shirley Temple doll and later a Barbie of course. I remember looking for scraps in my mothers sewing space to drape on the dolls for designer original clothes. I still like dolls, but now I am into Art dolls.
These are a couple of my favorites. The one on top doesn't have a name. Nothing I come up with seems to fit. Maybe the little button boobies are distracting me? LOL!! If you think of a name please let me know in the comments section.
This is 'Mother Nature'. She is a 14 inch bendi doll. I cut into her head and sunk the sculpey face in. She has acorn boobs and black feather wings. There are some very cool copper face beads on the strip hanging from her left leg. I had to cut into her to sink the acorns too.

So there you go, keep playing with dolls, no matter how old you are. But maybe try looking at the in a different way.

I thought when I started this blog that one of the keys to good blogging is disciplined posting. So I have been trying to post every other day. But yesterday I was sick with the flu. So I am a day behind. But I am going to try to keep to a schedule. I am kind of random and chaotic in my work so I figure I should try to have some order somewhere.
