This lady came to life today. My dolls are in my head...itching to get out. I am always happy when they resemble the doll I see in my mind's eye.
I usually love coming up with names for my Mugwump Woolies...something that suits their personality. Today, I am drawing a blank. I'm hoping you all might help give this sweet gal a name.
She's a tall one...thirty six inches. She's wearing an antique baby shirt...dyed black...that compliments her wool skirt.
She's crazy for cats...especially black...and totes them about in her leather purse.
She's "old school"...her shoes match her purse.
Her stockings (legs) are made from the lining of an antique choir robe...her pumpkin noggin is made from the outside of the velvet robe. The robe, in it's advanced age, has become mottled...it's color softened to a beautiful caramel.
A string of vintage buttons circles her neck...the colors the very same that appear in her skirt. Her nose is an old coverlet piece and her eyes are antique shoe buttons.
Hopefully, all this info will help someone out there help me christen this gal.
If I pick your contribution, or am influenced by your suggestion, these little black cats will come your way...with a few surprises thrown in, as well. Perhaps a green witch? I'll announce the winning name next Friday, August 15th.
Rules? You must be a follower and leave a comment on this post, with a name you think might agree with this girl. Lower 48 states.
This dolly will be going to my friend's wonderful antique store in Dade City for the fall open house on September 16.
Put your thinking caps on!
Enjoy the day,
