it's been all about handmade gifts the past few weeks and random acts of kindness
this doll was made especially for my friend mary stanley who lives in nearby santa barbara
and this one will go to a little girl named Ida who i met through a friend on instagram
and this lass is on her way to holland also to an instagram friend
i have truly enjoyed the art of doll making, something new for me.
i even made a house on wheels. i just love this "let's play" phase i'm going through.
the new house is getting spiffed up with hardwood floors, new windows and new ceilings so it remains empty a little longer.
my favorite, ofcourse, is my portrait of nina bagley's dogthe incomparable "walter"
i have matted and framed him and he will be on his way to nina as a gift to be hung at heartrock hill,
her cabin in north carolina. sweet thing, it will be hard to part with you but we know where you truly belong.
may this season find you all focused on the things that matter
