Back to the Dollz...


Yesterday I made a tiny doll. It is 2 inches tall. It's on a tablespoon where I often like to pose my tiny ones. She is sewn, turned, and stuffed with cotton to make her a little heavier. She has a vintage velvet millinery flower in her hand.




Here's a monkey on a teaspoon. The smallest monkeys have gone to live elsewhere, but I recently made more--just haven't photographed them since they are going to be living elsewhere soon.

Below are some of the tiny animals and dolls I have made. (If I have already shown them, forgive me!) Truly, "tinies" take up little space. The giraffe is 6 inches tall.




Do you like miniatures? I have always loved them. I don't have room for doll house but I always have room for tiny dolls and animals

Going to work on some other small things today. The weekend is nearly here and the warm weather is back. The mockingbird started singing at 3:15 this morning. The opera reverberated throughout our house. His operatic voice is beautiful but I think it will be a long summer....



As always,

enjoy the day...


...and happy weekend!

That new doll is astonishing!!! I am so tired of using the word, "Wonderful" when I write to you so I had to look up something new in our "Synonyms" book. I think "Astonishing" fits her perfectly! She is gorgeous, Helen! Just amazing- so tiny and so detailed and so much character! And LOOK at your Giraffe! OOOuuuuuHHH I have NEVER seen him! All your little tinies! I am running out of words to describe your creations- each one more "Astonishing" than the next!!!

Your tiny work is hugely wonderful :-) I've always loved small dolls and tiny treasures. When living in a small house, there is always room for a tiny doll.
