Miniature Monday: Doll in her Trunk

In the mid 90's I often attended the International Guild of Miniature Artisans' ( annual show in New York City.  Since it was so convenient for me, just a quick subway ride, I signed up for many workshops.

This little beauty was created at one of those workshops.  We made the trunk out of leather with a paper lining. We dressed and wigged the doll, made the clothes and accessories. The tiny doll is only 1 1/2 inches tall. It was a lot of fun.  I wish my record keeping was a little better back then because I can't remember the artist who taught the workshop.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Miniature Monday: Babies and Wicker

The moses basket was hand woven by my friend and wicker expert Marilyn Crockett.  Marilyn often teaches at the shows she attends.  The afghan was made by Gladys.

Both babies are made by Alicia Singleton, AllieBeanDolls.  I love her babies and won't even tell you how many I have, but it's a LOT!  The details are amazing, and their little chubby arms and legs move. Check her out:

The wicker stroller is by Peggy Taylor, Peggy's Miniature Wicker.  I usually find her at the Lehigh Valley Miniature Show.
