More Little Things

This has been a hectic week filled with catching up on household stuff and trying to find as much time as possible to create a few things....
Here is what I have been up to this past week or so:
Again I used old wood, some tulle and polymer clay face, arms and legs. The old hardware piece is screwed around a wine cork that is holding the tulle skirt. The garters are really meant to be attached to the bottom of a bra to hold it to your girdle (remember those?)

Her hair is mohair that I was lucky enough to have won in a lovely giveaway.
Here I made a small hand painted poly face, a velvet butterfly that I have held onto for ages and a key chain of Route 66. There are some sweet little charms added to the sides and of course my painting and stain finish for the wood piece.
Dear little Frida...pieces of old jewelery, a great old piece of wood from a vintage birdhouse that I painted crackled and stained, crochet lace from a VERY old doily, plaster tiles I made, carved and painted myself. Notice the piece of fabric I wove through her braid before baking the polymer clay. I thought that was a nice touch!!!
This has been fun and I still have a few more I would love to make using some very old escutcheons and then I think I will paint a few canvases in oil paint this summer and see if I can reproduce the images I have stored in my head.
I hope everyone has been having a good start to the summer even though the weather in some areas has been outrageous. It was 94 here yesterday (100 with the heat index) and even expected to get hotter today...ugh! I am not a huge fan of high temps and humidity.
Take care and be well whatever you choose to do today!
