WIP Wednesday

Cozy...that's the word that perfectly describes my morning here at The Nest. My Solstice tree is up and lit, I have bread baking in the kitchen, and I've been working on a set of cinnamon babies for a commission so the house is scented with a delightful mix of wonderful aromas. The sunlight is streaming in my dining room windows as I work giving everything a lovely glow and if anything making it all even more ...well cozy. Such a nice way to spend a cold December morning.

I added a few more items to the shop this week, 3 little acorn hatted (is that a word?) pin dolls and a set of snowflake lavender babies. Here's a little peek...

EDIT The shop listings will be delayed because it won't stop raining so I can get photos! Grrrr. New dolls will be listed at 6pm EST tonight.

These dolls will be live in the shop at 1pm EST today. They are the colors of Autumn leaves, 3" tall, with silk duponi dresses and little acorn hats. Just the thing to pin on a Fall outfit!

WIP Wednesday

For today's WIP I have a pile of tiny pin dolls, each less than 3 inches tall, on one of my favorite doll books...Miss Hickory. Have you read this one? It's such a sweet and gentle story.

I have many favorite books about dolls, Hitty: Her First Hundred Years, The Hidden House, Big Susan , The Mennyms, The Doll People, all the wonderful Lonely Doll stories, and of course the Raggedy Anne & Andy books. Do you have a favorite that's not on the list? Please do share!!

The Dolls of September...

I've been working really hard this month ( and some of last month too!) to get a bunch of dolls ready for a gallery show.  I will be one of 3 artists featured at Earthworks Gallery  for the month of October and if you happen to be in Greensboro NC on Friday night October 5th, Do please come by and see me at the opening!
I packed up all the little dolls before I took pictures but I thought you might like to see the bigger ones.
