Dolls from Found Objects

Lest I forget, I'd like to acknowledge my friend and colleague at Uneek Designs, who uses clothes pins and wood to create amazing figures of literary and historical figures. Find her on ETSY. I also honor those who made dolls and other items from soap, and beeswax. I remember using candle making kits, and bunson burners, to create all kinds of little creatures. I even used soap flakes compressed together once to make a baby doll, and beer bottles were my favorites for making Victorian dolls with elaborate hankie skirts.

Am trying to reseed my annuals; I've had luck with them coming up again as volunteer plants. One of the simple pleasures I have is to pick flowers, even colorful flowering "weeds' from my garden, and them to arrange them in a faux glass vase on my desk at work. I mix fern, and holly, marigolds, hydrangea, daisies, whatever is in season. They make lovely bouquets, and give me something nice to look at, away from the computer screen.
