Well, it's that time of year!!!  Yayayay!!  We're heading south this Friday, can't wait to get out of this cold, rainy, miserable weather.  Should take us about 4 days to get to Arizona.

Biggest problem is that I can't take all my trinkets/creations and "stuff" with me.  Sooooo, a big sale this week only.  My Kachina is on sale big time.  Check out my etsy shop for deals, deals, deals.

Gordon Pilgrim, Gourd Art Doll

Well I got my hands on a bunch of dried gourds and....what to do with them????
A Pilgrim seemed logical at this time of year.  His hat is made out of an old piping tube and a couple of washers and a buckle of course.  Add some vintage doll parts, a black belt and buckle, a felt collar and loopy tie........tada.....Gordon Pilgrim....a Thanksgiving Squatter.
He's available in my etsy shop.

Little Domino Hanging Ornaments

Well I came across a couple of boxes of old old dominos and here's what happened.......
I got some pictures out of magazines and old doll books and pasted them onto some clear glass cabs......added some flower petals and some fibres and .... tada..... little hanging ornies.
Yikes.....she's spooky, in a cute kind of way.

I like this guy.  He reminds me of that guy in the trench coat on Laugh In.....what was his name?  Arnie?
He's got real faux mohair.

Yay for Ethan.  He's just adorable and he waits for a bath and waits for a drink (milk or wine, doesn't matter which), waits with Santa and waits for the school bus to bring the kids home from school.  He's always blushing red and he can count to 3.
My gosh I had so much fun making him - couldn't help but laugh at him.
He's available in my Etsy shop over there ========>>

K.....I'm back

Had a sore foot then a sore back then a sore throat.  Sux to get old.

The Quints Mixed Media Assemblage Domino Miniature Hanging Dolls

Awwwww!!!!  These are The Quints - reminiscent of the Dionne Quintuplets.  Do you own the original Madame Alexander 1st generation Dionne Quintuplets miniature dolls issued in 1935....Yvonne in pink, Marie in blue, Annette in yellow, Emelie in lavender and Cecile in green. These little hanging dolls will compliment your collection. Faces are taken from an old doll collectors book, adhered to clear glass cabochons and then onto old domino tiles with 5 dots on each. I've added fancy fibres, flower petals and glass beads. The girls hang about 7 inches in length and their fancy flower dresses spread about 5 inches. They will hang flat against a wall.

They're available in my etsy shop ======> over there =====>

Madeleine the Dream Squatter

Madeleine truly believes if she closes her eyes tight enough that she'll take flight.  She dreams of flying.  Madeleine started life as a vintage silver salt shaker and evolved with wings of satin-y ribbon and vintage ruffled trim.  She's available in my etsy shop.

Clown Squatter

Here's the Clown Squatter I just finished.  He started out as a vintage telephone pole insulator and grew from there with ribbon, fibres, springs, wire, hearts, beads and so on.  His wire armiture arms are slightly poseable so he can juggle his little hearts as high as you wish.  I think he turned out quite magical.  He's available in my etsy shop.
