I'm having four people over for dinner in a couple of hours; not ready! NOT ready! I had hoped to have more photos to post, but for now all I have are the close-ups. If I have time, I'll post more tomorrow during the day, before the update, but hopefully these will give you an idea of the theme.
I wanted something November-y, but all I could think of was "November
Rain" (the song still plays in my head far too often, planted there by
my very uncool adolescent love for G & R). But then I found a book
called Under November Skies and think that's a little more in line with
my current state of mind than an eleven minute hair-band rock-ballad.
These little ladies are somewhat melancholic (surprise!) and are all
wrapped up in little sweaters, scarves and yes even legwarmers (I'll
never truly reject you, 80s!)
All of these dolls are on the smaller side; 10.5 - 11 inches.
I've always loved old cabinet photos, and keeping with the grey and nostalgic mood of November skies, I've combined some doll images with the old frame from a daguerreotype to make these prints:
Duchess Bunny Tintype
November Rain Tintype (I couldn't resist...)
Thank you for looking; must run off and cook, clean, shower, run around like a chicken with my head cut off, mutter unspeakable things when I can't get it all done on time, be grateful that I have friends who don't care, eat, drink, be merry, sleep, dream. Until tomorrow dears!
