I recently had the privilege to teach at a wonderful venue in Stamford, Ct...Art is You. I had a fabulous, creative group of students (love you guys!) and Connecticut is a lovely place to be, in the fall.
One of my longtime dreams has been to visit Maine...so, Wife Whisperer and I took the opportunity to take a little side trip. I've got some amazing photos to show you but, for now, I want to introduce you to someone...
On our way from Portland to the Maine North Woods, we stopped at a little antique shop and I found this little lovely. She's all handmade, from her pretty painted face to her wonderful dolly clothing.
Just look at this face! I wonder who painted her. I can only imagine how excited some little girl was to receive this amazing doll.
Her legs have been lost, somewhere along the way but her clothes are pretty amazing. Her dress is hand sewn from black silk with an embroidered pinafore atop. Underneath, she's got several layers of eyelet and lace petticoats and tiny little bloomers. She's a sweetheart and I love how much care was put into her making.
The metal box you see, above, was another find from that same shop. In it, I've kept my finds from the trail...we did a little hiking, even though the weather was cold and rainy. Fun stuff!
Stay tuned for more photos...
