Dolls, Dolls, Dolls



That's the theme for at least January in the studio! I finished the doll box I have been working on for a few days and have decided I'm pretty happy with the result. I had intended to do lots more to the outside of the box (homage to Lisa Kaus sort of thing) but in the end I just loved the antiqued finish and slight touches of sparkle.

Now, I have to work on projects to reduce down the German dolls a little bit. Thoughts? :) Also, if anyone has any terrific ideas on how to incorporate them as necklace centerpieces without them appearing to be hanged I welcome your input!

I had a terrific New Year's with the family in Kansas, although snow would've been perfect at least it was chilly, we've returned home to 70 degrees and sunny. Nothing left to do but fire up the grill and enjoy the new patio. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

good golly woman! that's a heap and a peck of dolls! i made a necklace using one and i gave her a tiny garnet necklace that she attached to my necklace with (i hope that makes sense). i didn't think she looked like she was hanging. i'm sure you can drill them as well if you go about it properly (i dunno how to go about it properly but i'm sure google would answer you pretty quick). happy new year!

OMG- are all those dolls yours???? My head is exploding! Maybe you can drill some holes where the arms go and make the connection there.
I can't wait to see what you do!
