Let's take a break from wedding stuff for this week and enjoy some adorable minis instead! Here are the results of Baby Cat and Jennifer's final (at least for now) miniature trade!
|Doesn't this bear look so cute in her little crochet dress?|
|Green is adorable too!|
|The weather wasn't quite warm enough for dresses when we made this trade, so our little model decided to put her sweater back on.|
|And here's Strawberry shortcake modeling a sweater of her very own!|
|Another cute sweater and scarf set for Strawberry Shortcake.|
In other news, and mostly as a result of trading with Jennifer, my dollhouse is coming together bit by bit!
|As part of the last trade, I received this comfy sofa and two chairs. The living room is looking cozy!|
Baby Cat also found this amazing art doll magazine at Collage. Isn't this doll beautiful in a sort of morbid way?
She is designed to decompose and be used as food for the little sprouts growing on her dress. Although it seems sad to see such a work of art decay, it is wonderful that it will return to the earth and create new life, unlike so many things that end up in landfills when their useful life is ended. (Not that I would ever throw this doll away, I would want to keep it!)
The magazine includes basic instructions for making similar dolls and I am considering trying to make something similar to it on my own if I ever have the time. Until then, check out the original artist at: http://burymebaubles.tumblr.com/ or https://www.etsy.com/shop/burymebaubles. I know I can't get enough of looking at her dolls!
