If you were to ask my daughter to describe my decorating style, she'd say "Mom likes Ugly." By that she (hopefully) means I like odd, eclectic, rustic...in my house no room follows a pattern from the room before. But she hasn't seen my house in...maybe six years? She doesn't know I actually love pink, or cabbage roses, or lace, because the last she saw, my house was full of squatty carved totem guys, rustic clay pots, and woolly handwoven everything.
So she may be surprised when she sees this latest doll...(click to enlarge). She (the doll, not the daughter) is paperclay head/face/hands, cloth & fiberfill body, and a little inverted bowl for a base.
I tried my hand at a "pretty" doll, which is out of character for me. Not sure I'll make any more, but I think I like this one. Critiques are appreciated--and bear in mind I have a tough skin. Any constructive criticism helps with Ye Ole Learning Curve.
