Today I want to share with you a couple of pictures
of dolls I have made and/or costumed.
This first set was made circa 1991, I think.
At that time our daughter would watch the TV series
David the Gnome every day while eating her lunch
before going off to kindergarten.
David and Lisa were a big part of her world
so I made these dolls for her.
I am happy to report these 2 rustic clothespin
creations are still on display in her home.
Last week I shipped off two 1:12 scale dolls that
I re-costumed on commission.
The gentleman was to be based on
Nels Oleson from the Little House series.
I think they turned out very well, and most importantly,
the collector was pleased.
It was a fun change from the mice and bears
and all I kept thinking was how very
these dolls were at just about
twice the size of my mice.
My worktable is quite full of more
commissions this week, but I hope to have
two new mice to show you in a few days.
They will be a tea party set:
a Lady Mouse with her teapot
and matching potbelly baby mouse
in the tiny matching teacup.
