Now looky, looky what came in the mail today......something that I ordered a few days ago from Suzanne over @ Poplar Street Primitives or visit her etsy shop (her blog isn't working for me for some reason right now) Poplar Street Prims Etsy....once I saw her sweet pea self...and her sweet peas babes...I just had to have her....I've purchased dollies from Suzanne before...and LOVE her work....This sweet pea doll has been colorwashed in prim green from head to toe and sanded. She has the fanciest prim two piece dress with puffy~n~cuffed sleeves and a bodice that has been stitched up the front (so victorian looking)!!....and she even has pantaloons...Her face and feet are needle sculpted and her eyes are painted with muslin "eyelids". I have 3 kiddies (a daughter who turned 19 today-Happy Birthday Baby (not that she'll read my blog. haha), a son who's 10 and a stepdaughter who's 18) so I thought she was perfect. Isn't she cute? I'm not sure if this is her design though?? Suzanne is an excellent crafter and pays attention to detail. Thank you Suzanne!!
Can you see the lil' sweet peas in their peapod?
Here's Rachel and I at the chinese restaurant today......we even went to Michaels and I bought some spring colored floss....Rachel didn't get anything...not sure what she'll buy with her birthday money. She'll probably save it for her Amsterdam trip this June...she's going with her college art class....how fun!! Did I mention that she is a fabulous artist?
This is what she painted in high school this past year. An acrylic portrait of Joshua...my baby and her brother. She referred to a picture that I had taken. The art teacher submitted it to a show at the library and hung it out in the hallway at school. I'm going to try and get it into the new art gallery at the college where I work.
Where does the time go? I just remember when she was starting to walk...!!
Happy Birthday to my little (big) princess....It's been a great week. Happy weekend everyone! patti
