New Ornies


I don't know about y'all but I so love this time of year. Unfortunately it's not quite as cool as I would like it to be the first of October but the idea of cool weather in my future is a relief in itself.

The Halloween season is just such wonderful inspiration for any artist let alone a doll artist. I've been busy making ornaments of all sorts. In truth I'm having a hard time committing to a full body at all these days:)

One nice thing about ornaments besides the fact that they don't take as much time and I'm able to offer them at a reasonable price, I get to use some really fantastic vintage textile scraps I've had lying around. Oh how I love to get my hands into these vintage laces and trims, they just don't make em like they used to. Gawd, when did I start sounding like my grandfather, but alas he was right!

They are amazing! Yes, it's great when you can figure what to do with little bits of fabric left, I always have that dilemma, also!

And, nope, they don't make em like they used to, for sure!
