Just for fun...

Even though she's sold I wanted to share more pictures of Caroline.
Her Dress was made of an old baby Christening dress slip, and the lower part of her sleeve and under skirt was made of scrim. Under her dress and slip, she wore some old vintage doll bloomers I found on one of my Antique shopping trips. She was made of paper clay and her hair was natural cotton batting from an old quilt.
And I made a crown for her too, from an old drawer pull cut into a crown.
She was embellished with vintage mother of pearl buttons and organdy ribbon and she had tiny feather wings.

Just added to my ETSY Shop
I got into my soldering iron yesterday and made a few Halloween Charms.

This one is quite larger, like an ornament.

Good Day all, Becky

Hey this is the newer Sis...
Your Charms are really nice. I have a little more time before I can handle a hot tool. My right hand is stronger everyday. So I am starting out with Jewelry at the moment. I made 12 bracelets today. Can you believe it? All in one day. Amazing.
Love, Vicki
