I met Agah on Flickr a long time ago. She makes the most amazing Tilda dolls amongst other things. We decided to to a doll swap, and I think Agah thought I never would actually get one made for her! (it's been a while!) Well, I never break a promise.
You know what, Agah chose to have her dolls hair like this, but having used the Bamboo Viscose on the last doll, I think I prefer the softer look of the BV!
I made the little box which contains a sewing kit, and she has knitting needles in her hair.
Agah is an amazing artist, and photographer. She also has an Etsy shop.
This is one of her dolls she made ~ I love them.
I can't wait to see what she has in store for me! :O)
I have only just finished Agah's doll ~ it's 3.15 am her time in Poland, so she hasn't seen her doll yet.... I hope she likes her!!
Each week one of the Etsy Treasury team members of ADO will create a new Treasury. Don't forget to leave a comment in support of all these fabulous artists... we want to get to the Front Page :O)
I found Texas hiding in a paper bag.... which happened to still have the contents of what I had just bought in there! a lovely sweater, now covered in hair - well, winter is on it's way!
Remember the kitten who turned up a couple of weeks ago,Tiger? he has turned into the biggest softie ever!
On being a vegetarian.... eating out in Texas is difficult... when I was a vegan it would have been impossible!
Jesse and I went out for breakfast yesterday, the choice was, suprise suprise, a veggy burger or a vegetable omlette. I asked the waitress if the eggs were free range - her reply was "what's a free range egg?" to cut a long story short, she really did not know what a free range egg was! I could not believe it. I still can not believe it, and probably will never believe it.
Fabulous egg and chicken photos borrowed from my favourite animal photographer Sharon Montrose.
Happy Labour Day guys. And dont' forget.... buy free range.... please?
This doll was made for the Art Dolls Only Tarot Card challenge. I chose World ~ which has some interesting links to where I'm at in life right now (coincidently, or not?) or, perhaps World chose me - whilst packing up the house for our upcoming move, I found a couple of globes from a previous challenge... I wondered if there was a tarot card with connections to it - and voila... The World Tarot Card.
Texas ~ is always straight in front of the camera - I had to remove him several times so I could get on with taking photos!
He is growing so much! I love him :O)
****Traveling Doll Project has come to an end***
My very first clay doll has been around the world for 6 months, and worked on by 5 amazing artists ~ Cindee, Paula, Sally, Lisa and Nancy.
I must say, the girls did a wonderful job, but what an awful doll she was to start with ~OMG I am so embarrassed, an alien with the most awful hands and limbs!! It's nice to see how I have sort of progressed in 6 months though!
