diva's and queens

A few more studio pic's.
I thought this was interesting with the textured glass shining through the shade. I love stained glass!

...they think I am.... shelf diva's...

...and Queen of the studio...
I don't remember how old I was when I got this Madame Alexander doll. I have always loved her. She is from the 50's and has pierced ears and seamed stockings (not panty hose) I love seamed stockings...I always though they were sexy and now I see the girls wearing them again on the dancing shows...yay! Oh, and she also has bendable elbows and knees. (and red it!)

....she needs a makeover...
I need to find a doll hospital.

...and of know who traded in her party hat for a crown.

this is my new doll class for Fall.
She's a sweet punkin' doll.
Should I call her "punkinhead"?
That is what I called my daughter when she was a baby.
We all have big punkinheads in our family.
We call it the family big head.
Someone told me that is a good thing.
NOT when you go to buy hats. is her closeup.

Happy Friday
ARTful weekend to all!

Your Madame Alexander doll is lovely. I remember back when my daughter was born, I could not wait to get her a Madame Alexander was a baby doll with a little pink nightie and her name was Victoria. I loved the box it came it and the pink tissue. Sigh. We love our dollies, don't we??

I have been catching up on your posts...40 boxes covered with art...I am impressed.
My Mother has several Madame Alexander dolls...I wonder where she has them ? I have not seen them for years.
She is the doll lover in the family...I never liked dolls when I was little and growing up...go figure. I had many dolls because everyone thought I should love them.
They are probably laughing their heads of now...a dollmaker that did not like I am making myself laugh.
