Abracadabra !!!!!

 Drum roll please............................

 All the girls know that Miss Mighty B would be the best momma. They all seem to lay in the same box so she can sit on them. She is sooooo sweet.
Ok, so beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just think she is adorable!

Thinking of Spring and Rose Colors...............

Lady Rose Duport
Adorned in her best frock eagerly anticipating Spring.
I should have taken a photo of just the rose tapestry fabric I used in the hat and upper coat sleeves. It is a gorgeous material!!!
The Crocus flowers have emerged from the ground here in Woodstock Virginia. A little tease that Spring is around the corner.

The Trouble with Hannah...................

 The trouble with "Hannah" is that I just can't seem to get the last details finished. I still need to do some hand stitching on her hat and shoes. Maybe I'm stalling because I just lover her so. Yes, she is a big gal as she sits so happily in my rocker. She is also rag stuffed  - I love picking up a doll and feeling some good weight to it.
 The vintage lace I used to trim her dress bodice is gorgeous. Vintage and hand tatted.
 Her shell buckle is from an old stash of my grandmother's sewing things. I guess it was just time to celebrate it again.
 Love these colors and textures!
OK Hannah, you win. You can definitely stay awhile. Boy she was a lot of work! A true labor of  LOVE.

Finished Playing. Should I Keep Going? What Do You Think???

 Moth Maiden - Mixed Media storage basket

-M- is for Mermaid
I have always had a soft spot for Mixed Media dolls. Assemblage and mixed media was a focus for me back in the early 90"s (college). I love the textures and the unexpected. What do you think of these dolls? Honestly!
