What I've been up to....

I lucked out and won a box of 1940's little girls' dresses in almost perfect shape at the auction last week.  Since I have no little girls to wear them, they are going up for sale.  Well, as soon as the weather gets better and my pictures don't look like like crap.  I needed a mannequin or something to show the dresses so while waiting for the sun to shine, I made this little google-eyed girl dress form.  Isn't she cute?  She's kind of Kewpie/Campbell kid inspired.  I think I'll paint the stand a retro-green and maybe add a logo or something.


This violin case has been in my pile for a while.  I dry-brushed it in white, painted a rose on the front and decorated the interior.  

So now, I'm going to go work on this.......

Does anyone have any booth space available at an antique and collectible mall?  I need just a little...or just a lot.

Smiles from the farm,
