Ghostly Nursery Rhymes
I made these eyes and thought they were pretty creepy ;)No pupils and well that just says dead or ghost to me lol Originally I thought I would make them into shadowbox dolls; but by the time I finished with their bonnets they could not fit comfortably inside one of my boxes. At 14" height they stand alone haha well with their creepy friends Bo comes with a little needle felted lamb and her hook of course ;)
Miss Muffet comes with her spider a length of fence and her comfy tuffet ;)
Bo Peep Did not really lose her sheep she knew exactly where to find them 
In the butchers shed they were mostly half dead.
When Bo came running after them. 

She loved a good lamb chop as much as the rest her decision to sell at her families request

The squeals of the lambs did make her heart stop

but couldn't bear for her favorite lamb to end up in a pot

When the butcher protested she felt some rage her hook went flying into the butchers rib cage.

The struggle ensued until the last sound Bo heard was a snap
She saw herself falling and her head went Craaacckk.

She felt some relief as the butcher fled
Her favorite lamb saved although she was dead.

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet but did not care for the taste of her curds and whey.

Her stomach started to churn her throat began to burn when a strange spider started creeping her way.

She thought she would heave if the spider did not leave this was all too much to take.

She looked at the fence and thought she could pull of a stake to smack the spider away.

But the spider sat down and looked at her frown 
He thought she didn't look right. 

In a blink of an eye he gave her vittles a try.

And they both stared at each other with a great fright.

Their heads began to bobble their legs were a wobble.

But only she fell from this life.

The spider he sat and had him a great snack and then he wobbled away.

ADO Traveling Art Doll

"Team Tiny"

The ADO Art Dolls Only Traveling Doll is something I have wanted to participate in for some time. Becoming a member of ADO about 6 months ago I had been anxiously awaiting this super fun event! 
My First Doll arrived and wow was I in love! She is created by ADO member Wilma Simmons 

First off she is made of Cloth and I don't know if this is common but she stands! I mean this girl is so well balanced she just holds her own ;)
So I enjoyed staring at her for a couple days before I dared to mess with her lol. Being that cloth dolls are not my usual medium I was a bit perplexed (and nervous) how to...well attack ;) 

Her body is made from some funky fabrics and colors so I dug through my fabric stash for something not too clashing but something not dull cause this girl screamed dress me fun!
Staying in my shabby torn style I pulled out my trusty black and white striped trim and started with a collar. A skirt followed and she was looking almost like a jester. Then I thought well what is her point? What is her deal here?

And soon Flowers.. From one of the prints on her arm I thought she is the Joy of flowers ;)

Again looking through my flower stash I found flowers in purples and blacks that just jumped out to be with her :D 
Vintage Orange seam binding 

And I just couldn't stop myself....I know She has to travel to the next artist I needed to leave something But out came the orange Tibetan for some hair ;)

Hairdo done.....ah I am loving her soo much and feel like a bit of me well a lot of me was tossed in hahah!

Her next Stop 

Ayala I left her face alone for you hehe
