A fun little project....


Three little dollies
All in a row.

Their skirts are made from ladies hankies and their heads (and shoes) are painted and varnished to resemble antique china-head dolls.  My own design.

Today's quote is from Leo Rosten.... "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate.  It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all"
