I have a few of the vintage John Martin child magazines and the covers really are eye catching
I won this fabulous piece of crepe paper on eBay last week .. it is so cool the colors are bright and rich.. and now what to do with it?!
Love the big eyes big brows and fat cheeks.
Here is another new old doll, a baby.. I don't have very many babies mainly girls.. I buy fixer uppers as like to clean them and do all the fussy stuff.. its just something I like to do and affordable to do.

Fighting a bad bug here something I brought home from my trip..was in my head now my chest ..yuck.. so think I'll stir up a old witche's stew.. I hate to cook when I'm sick..and besides who wants to eat something a sick person made...ick.. not me!! A pie I made and sort sums up how I feel today..
I had to buy the cat face print!
just too pretty to open .. but I did!
and Turnip head was a wonderful treat from William ..Thanks much!!!
Well, was going to take more pictures.. but my camera battery died and left my charger at my daughter's house.. so had to buy a new one, should be here in a few days... till then here are few pictures around the house as late getting my decorations out. Retro Rudolph postcards framed, a French chalkware rabbit, old plastic pumpkin light, Pat Murphy's felted kittycat..
On top of the fridge along with the chocolate Rabbits I added Owls and candles..
Most of my Celluloid Dolls are rather tiny, but this trio will be dressed up in some vintage crepe paper. They all had holes in their feet so... hmm.. had a idea.. put dowels in blocks and slide them on ..now they stand on a good base to display..
In the bedroom I keep all my vintage Papier mache and composition Dolls and small bisques..I literally have Dolls hanging on the walls ..which is really a nice way to display the long gowns.
Decided to do in Paper Clay rather than Papier Mache.
This is a peek at some of the work that I didn't finish in time for the Show..plus I have another table with a pile of Dolls, guess those will be winter projects.. Ha!
