Morning Glory Fiber Fil

As most of you know Walmart has stopped carrying Morning Glory fiber fil. I have found out that the only place to purchase Morning Glory is from the distributer, Marshall's Dry Goods, 888-744-8277. They sell a 5lb box for 11.21. Shipping is seperate. You can purchase a case of 20 for 14.13 a case that includes shipping but who has a barn to store it in? If you have a lot of friends in your area who are interested in purchasing a case it may be worth your while. In the meantime I sent an email to Walmart's customer service advising them of my displeasure of their decision to discontinue and asked if they don't want to carry it in their stores if they could at least sell it on line as Site to Store. Will get back if they respond.

Spring Cleaning Special

Here are a few pictures of the "Bathing Beauties". I think they are adorable with their ample busoms and bellies and their tiny shoes. Their bathing caps are embellished with feathers and flowers as is their behinds. Their faces have been drawn on with artist pencils and their hair is sheep's wool. They are all wearing little bracelets made from seed beads. They are a fun doll and can't wait for beach weather!
Spring Cleaning Special: 38.35 includes shipping.
Use the Paypal button to purchase. You have your choice of color. black, pink or gold.

Spring Cleaning

It is that time of the year when I have to admit that I have too much "stuff". By stuff I mean all the dolls that I have hanging around my studio. Doll parts, doll clothes and in particular dolls that I made a while ago. Before primitives I was teaching myself how to make those gorgeous art and fashion dolls. I admit they were a lot of work, but just not my style. I ran across some cuties though I call "The Bathing Beauties" that I will be posting in a day or two. Cleaning house gives me a sense of renewal, like Spring, and for more stuff!!!!!

I typically use sheep's wool for hair on all my dolls but discovered this wonderful crinkly synthetic hair and used it on Little Girl #3. Isn't she a doll? (no pun intended)

Little Girl Dollies

I have been working on different painting techniques for my dollies. I have finish a couple and thought their little faces turned out cute. I wanted them to have a the look of an old composition doll's face.
Instead of coffee staining these dolls I left them as is. I used brighter colrs on them and they are wearing used baby shoes. They are 27" tall and if interested in purchasing please visit me at
More pictures to come.............

Mother Nature.

This post has nothing to do with dolls but to me Mother Nature is awe inspiring I wanted to share this picture. One of my daughter's and mine favorite things to do, other than going to the beach, is taking pictures of the sunsets at the beach. I wanted to share one of the photos I took last evening, 1-23-2010, at Torry Pines Beach in San Diego.........

Hope you take a moment to enjoy it and to reflect on how lucky we all are to be living in this country and on this beautiful planet.

Off to a slow start.

After all the hussle and bussle of the holidays it seems that time has come to a halt. Of course it hasn't, we have Valentine's Day just around the corner. Busy sewing and trying to keep up with Etsy, this blog, FB, there are so many that I find that I am spending more and more time on the PC than ever before. I am sure that I am not the only one. I am just glad that those people out there in cyber space have made it easier for pre-senior citizens (I will always be a pre-senior citizen) to use the internet. Anyone remember the pre-Windows days. I guess I am aging myself.

I have finished a couple of dolls for Valentine's Day and if I can remember how to post them check them out.

Until next time.................
