As the weather cools, it always seems to inspire me to slow down and pay attention to the details in life. The To Do lists get shorter, and daylight disappears. It seems natural to spend more time indoors, and with that, doll making sneaks it's way into the "things that need to be done" category.
Today I worked on an Izannah Walker inspired doll. She's painted and her ensemble is almost finished. This particular doll has a young lady presence about her. She will be dressed in a period cotton dress, red boots, and will be traveling with her handmade wool case. On the way to catch the carriage, she encounters a lovely little bird who follows her down the dirt road. Intrigued, she stops, and stands very still....little bird perches nearby and the two study each other......to continue. Stay tuned for photos of the two new friends and learn the dollyes name.
