Doll Sharing Day!

Happy Tuesday!!

I found out through Donna O'Brien's blog The Ribboned Crown http://donnaobrien.typepad.com/ , that today is doll sharing day at Lori's blog Faerie Window. http://faeirewindow.blogspot.com/
The closest things to dolls that I have to share are, my antique dress form Isabella Crane, and a small collection of Chatty Cathy shoes.

Donna assures me that anything relating to dolls, doll parts etc. qualify.
So this is my show and tell for the day. I'm sure you have seen Isabella before on several posts.

She keeps me company in my office/studio, while I work on my many art projects.


I have to blame, well blame is too harsh of a word, Andrea from 100 wishes, ever since I saw a Chatty Cathy shoe on her blog, I have started a small collection. I think the velvet with the flowers on the shoes are adorable. I love the colors. So that is my little tribute to dolls today. I have to go and get busy with my glitter, and glue now. Just wanted to check in, and say hi. If you have anything doll related, go and visit Lori.

My 1 year blogaversary is coming up later this month, so lookout for a giveaway soon.

Have a great day!
Rosemary

I adore the dress form! She is just lovely!! Love the little shoes too...I have the shoes from many of my dolls. The dolls went on to live with other little girls but a pair of their shoes remained with me to remember them by!

I had a Chatty Cathy doll when I was little - I really preferred horses so she didn't get played with much. The only other doll I can remember having was a Shirley Temple doll in a plaid dress. ::Jill

Hi,
I did not know that the adorable shoe was Chatty Kathy's! It is beautiful! I can see why a collection IS necessary : )

I love your tribute, Rosemary! It's unique; a very original angle...

I enjoy 100 Wishes, too. I have picked up some nice things although I will have to go back and take a look... I missed the Chatty Cathy shoes.

Lovely life size dolly that you can use for an inspiration piece in your studio! And yes, she certainly qualifies!
