BUT I was felt extremely inspired last night. You know how much I love my little pose dollies from Japan, so I decided to make a Pose Doll Plushie.
I used the felt that I had laying around - hence the pink skin. She's stuffed with poly fiberfill, has some funky brown yarn hair, and I painted her face with acrylics.
Say hello to Noel! AND sorry, she's not for sale. She's all mine. Yum yum yum.
Hugs to everyone and a Happy New Year too!
I reopend my Etsy shop for the holidays - stop by and say hello:

The dolly all the way on the left lost her base and dog somewhere down the line. I gave her my vintage pink chenille doggy to keep her some company! (c;
They are just one great big happy family!

I can't wait to go through my parents box of old ornaments in the attice. They have not been used in years. I have no idea what could be in there!
Love love love them all!

Two Sakura dolls - they have different faces than any of the other dolls in my collection!
This doll is perfect - her hair, her face, no flaws here! She's my little knitter!

The next is a precious find. Mini Ayumi Uyama pose doll figurines . They're new but look like all the dolls that I have been collecting lately!
My mom found these two Bradley type dolls at a flea market. They're a bit dirty, but they were $1 each. I have some cleaning up to do!
I had the blue dress doll for a couple of weeks now. I just got her red dress sister a few days ago.
What a darling darling rag doll! She's a huge 18" and one of the most interesting things I have ever seen! Perfect condition! So sweet!

The yellow one is made out of Shoprite bags, red bags from China town, and a green bag from Barnes and Noble.
This multi colored bag was a gift for my Assistant Principal. She was the reason they were at the Ecology fair. It includes Barnes and Noble, Path Mark, Stop and Shop, Chinatown, National Wholesale Liquidators, Michaels, AC Moore, and so many other bags - I don't know where they're from.
The next bag was made out of Trick or Treat bags. They had pictures of Charlotte's Web on them. My Parent Coordinator gave me tons of these bags to recycle, so this one was for her!

I just love vintage plastic flower things! This is just part of my collection! I occassionally make jewelry out them, but I don't really like to part with the pieces. Crazy me! I think I 'd just prefer to stare at them all day long. HA!

To show off my love for dutch thingys:
I have a lot of vintage dutch linens, so I copied bits and pieces of each one, added my own pizzazz, and there you are!
Today, I found inspiration in one of my mother's head vases. Yes! A head vase! Head vases were popular in the 50's to 70's I think. They're a porcelin head, with a hole for a flower or something.
And here's my painting. I used old old crafty acrylics, and I had no orange paint and about a spot of yellow! Check out the glittery glaze I used for her hair! I changed her eyelashes a bit - I hate painting thin lines with a brush.

(The fabric also reminds me of one of a Ryan McGinness painting. I was so lucky to discover him at the Museum of Modern Art last year. Please look him up!)
Sara also included a coordinating little envelope! Thank you Sara!

I love this handmade ceramic pot thingy. I think I'm going to put pens and pencils and paint brushes and stuff! It's dated 1979 on the bottom.
I bought this rooster from the same person as the pot. They kind of match a little!
I love buying jewelry at flea markets! That Christmas thing in the middle is actually a lens from a pair of glasses. Someone glued an image to the back and added a pin. The red beads are the neatest pop beads I have ever seen - I love the color! Some vintage plastic earrings, Russian Doll pin, charm bracelet and another Christmas pin!A bag full of vintage birdy cake picks. I love old cake directions. There's so many of these- so some of them may end up in my ShoeFlower Etsy store. Let me know if you interested and I can reserve some for you!
This amazing vintage book from 1959 was $1. Woo Hoo! It's French for Children and has two stories: The Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood. Besides the fact that the illustrations are amazing- Each line as three lines of text. One in French, on is the pronunciation, and one is in English. I learned today that Little Red Riding Hood is Chaperon Rouge! Woo Hoo!
Ta ta for now!
