coming soon....


I got the sudden urge a couple of weeks ago to try putting my dolls "on the wall", and have come up with these little portrait pieces. I am having fun putting these groupings together, and am a bit worried that I may have started a new obsession.....so you may be seeing many more of these in the days to come! any thoughts?

Really great idea....I thought of the Victorian family paintings....With rocking horses and handmade toys in the parlor...Right up your alley ....so to speak. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

They're wonderful--I actually made something kind of similar a while back but couldn't figure out what to do with it. I think they look smashing just as you have them pictured. (And what about something to do with a family tree? I'd love to see how these odd fellows are related to each other!)

thanks everyone! well, it looks like my "not so sure about it" feeling is unwarranted :) it's almost 11pm and I have been working feverishly to make some for the shop....look for them sometime tomorrow (probably after kiddie bedtime, as my five year old has been battling fever/asthma all week)

hey, pretty cool. Is there some type of stiff backing you could attach so they don't curve? Sorry, I'm just anal that way. I love the idea, and your work is so great anyway, I'm not surprised the feedback is positive.
