Sometimes when I am thrift shopping, I come across odd wooden shapes that catch my imagination. There's a nearby shop with a nice craft section--constantly updated with new stuff because we live in a geriatric demographic, and there are, to be frank, a lot of estate sales from crafty old ladies.
Consequently, I have way too much craft wood, and need to just go make all the things I imagined! In this one instance, the little wooden cone suggested a skirt--no real challenge there--but I felt compelled to make an angel doll for the upcoming PFATT Marketplace in early December. Too late for holiday things when they sell Christmas stuff before Halloween, but here she is, never the less.
She looks a little like my granddaughter, Jennifer. Her wings are cardboard, w/ paste and clay. Her hair is wool yarn. Along with old sheet music, an illustration of Mary and Jesus, and some old lace, she turned out all right. I still have to attach her sparkly halo, but didn't do that before I took pictures.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and much to be grateful for.
