Hazel hates dolls, they creep her out.
Ha, I love the irony of Hazel's story!
So wow, I have been so busy and have so neglected my lil blog which is usually the case this time of year. The Carnival of Saints and Souls Gallery show was a huge success. The artists and their dollies were amazing as was expected. You can see all of them here as well as my dolls from the show that are available online through the gallery link.
Today I wanted to share with you some of my very favorite suppliers on Etsy. A great supplier is like your best friend, they make your life so much easier as an artist and though I really want all of their stuff for myself I know that's not possible so I'm gonna share with you.
For the most amazing vintage laces and Victorian textiles scraps please check out Bonblu and dishvintage I visit both of these shops almost daily to see what they have to offer and they continually have the most beautiful laces and trims that will make you drool.
While I don't use the glass eyes regularly when I did I found VintageVancouver for a great constant supply of antique glass blown German eyes. She has all sizes and colors at a really great price and I can vouch....they are gorgeous!!!
Last but not least is my new and favorite supplier of Tibetan Lambswool. I've always had trouble finding the perfect supplier of this must for my dolls. FunwithTrollDolls has filled that need to a tee. Her plates are gorgeous, wonderfully priced and she does custom dying on request. Try her Teeswater wool. Its so beautiful and really fun to work with.
Thanks so much to our dolly suppliers..without you we couldn't do what we do. I hope you'll find some goodies in these wonderful shops....Oh, lest I forget all of these shops have amazing customer service which also a huge bonus.
