Well here she is as of now... I'd love to get feed back about what next I should do... She's got me over a barrel right now.
I've only made wings a total of 5 times. I guess I'm just not a wing gal... So I went to JoAnn's and bought some Holiday garland.... This could be one type of wing.
Then I have these small stars on wire I thought I'd encircle her with. What do you think?
Here's another "type" of wing she could have... or maybe no wings at all!
I have had a bit of feed back about her hair and the gold wire on top of her (which is NOT a Brillo pad)... I thought the gold wire glued to her head would be a cool hat... or put her hair up in a bun...
Please tell me what you think ~
Have a Great Monday Monday...
First of all I want to thank you all again for your wonderful comments on my blog. I wish I could answer everyone of you... please know I read all the comments and appreciate them all!
Eggs! My Americana's are finally starting to lay eggs! Of course just in time for winter, when the egg laying drops off dramatically! Aren't they beautiful?
Mrs. Humpty Dumpty... She's the "real" victim of his fall...
Here's her story~
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall"
We've all heard that Nursery Rhyme.
Yes, Humpty couldn't be put back together again.
But lets stop and think, who is the real victim of Humpty Dumpty's fall?
Why it's Mrs. Dumpty and all the little dumpty's (eggs if you will).
Did anyone ever stop and think about Humpty's better half?
No, I didn't think so!
Poor Mrs. Dumpty sat on that fateful wall looking down on the mess
that used to be her husband, "Tsk Tsk" she thought.
All the Kings horses and All the Kings men noticed a small smile creeping upon Mrs. Dumpty's lips.
Is that a smirk or a smile? Is there a possibility of foul play?
Could he may have been pushed or nudged just a little?
Well, that would lead us into quite a different Nursery Rhyme....
Mr. Dumpty sat on a wall all day long on his tush.
You can't blame Mrs. Dumpty for giving him a little push.
When all the Kings horses and all the Kings men came to put Humpty Dumpty together again.
She said "Oh please don't bother! He wasn't a great father. All he did was sit on his wall. I knew he would fall." (She says with a smile)
"We're better off without him" She said with a grin. "You see he left me a huge insurance policy. My babies and I won't suffer any strife. I'll just go find another egg and become his wife!"
Now if you've read this far I'm impressed!
A grouping of some of my dolls...
And last but not least ... Lucy... poor thing, 13th child... another story, another time~: )
My first egg~It's from one of my Americana's. I know because it's blue green in color. I have to admit I had it for breakfast : )

When I get home from Seattle tomorrow I will have one last look at my blog to see if any new people have commented... then I'll put all the names in a hat and draw one Sunday morning and then you will be the first to know!
Michelle from http://thestudioatcrowhavenfarm.blogspot.com sent me 4 beautifully crocheted spa towels in a beautiful bowl and to top that she sent me that wonderful Halloween ornament! I can hardly wait to hang him in my studio! Thank you Mish!
Also my son came up yesterday and said "Mom, it looks like your garden is wearing jester hats" : )
*Don't forget to leave me a post to sing up for the June giveaway... on my birthday June 26*
Because that is just what I did today! Stepped on to a treadmill going 2.6 miles per hour.. not a good idea. It threw me almost the whole length of the gym! Luckily for me I must have strong bones... none broken but lumps, bumps, tears and bruises.... not a pretty sight.
Have a Great Week-end... I know what I'll be doing!

Thanks for taking a peek into my studio ~room.
I live in the Pacific NW with my husband, cat and 7 chickens. My son lives a few miles away. I feel blessed to have 2 people that love me and I love them back. I've been making dolls for several years. From odd to cute... Halloween is one of my favorites.
I feel grateful and blessed everyday.
I've always had an eye for odd and unusual things. I'm attracted to bones, skulls, feathers.
I love dry humor and dark clothing. I'd rather have green olives than a chocolate cake. Coffee instead of tea. A walk on the beach or a dirt road instead of a mall or fancy clothing store. I love birds (that includes my chickens) prefer cats over dogs... but I love dogs.
I'm nomadic and would like to travel 9 months out of the year.
That's a little about me...

There have been some childhood stories fluttering back and forth this week. Some rotten, some hilarious. I think I was just misunderstood as a kid. You see, ...
