First Collection!

I am sooooo excited!!! Thanks to some of my wonderful prim sisters i have decided to start a collection of dolls. I have no idea how many will be in this series.... but i do know it will be fun creating all of them! The theme of my collection is "A Bit of Vintage Whimsy". I will be taking vintage images from old postcards, greeting cards and things as my inspiration.
My first doll in the series is a pretty make do doll, inspired by a vintage Valentine postcard from artist Ellen Clapsaddle. I am working on another doll right now from another Ellen Clapsaddle postcard.... can't wait to see how she comes out!
You can view the auction for this doll by clicking on the photo.
