Sharing Some Doll Goodies
Yesterday, when I went to my woodworking meeting, one of the guys presented me with this vase he made for my dolls. Isn't it beautiful? I forgot what kind of wood he said it was.
It's going to look wonderful in one of the dioramas.
Max arrived about a week ago. He's looking a little scared. I don't blame him. He will be a hot commodity in Morristown.
You can't blame me for this purchase. Blame, Roville. She rebodied this guy and he is looking incredibly sexy!
I will probably do a little something to his eyes to give him a 'less deer in the headlights' look. Need to find him a body first.
Looks like there's a new stewardess in town! Monzieur Z First Class has joined the Barbie Friendship plane crew. She too will get an eye repaint job.
I couldn't sleep last night, so I made Dominique a raincoat. It still needs buttons. The umbrella is from a LIV clothing pack.
Antoinette has been collecting items for her garden. She says she wants a greenhouse. I said, maybe.
I started the transformation on turning some of my Only Heart dolls into little boys. There will be an Asian boy as well. The two Black dolls will get their hair flocked. I may have cut the hair too short on the White doll. I'm sure I will figure it out. I will also remove the makeup. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out.
Finally spent a little time with my scroll saw. These are Christmas ornaments I started. We have to take ornaments to our next meeting. I haven't figured out how I will decorate them. On the left is a ballerina. On the right is a karate kid. They are regular size....
but, I think they may make nice wall hangings in the scenes. On the table is a golfer. Halle is holding a rocking horse ornament. I decided to turn this into a little seated horse rocker for the babies in Morristown. I will cut out another horse, a seat back and bottom, glue them and paint it. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
Does anyone know where these pieces are from? I picked them up at a thrift store. It would be nice to know what they were originally.
Update: Dollz4Moi solved the mystery of the thrift store pieces. They are from the following set. I've never even seen this set. It came out in 2000. I see they had a paper shredder. How cool! Thanks, Dollz4Moi.
