First, sweet Ms. Frannie's "dollies" as she calls them. I wish I could describe Frannie to you - but there are no words - simply because she is one of the kindest, sweetest, most talented, beautiful people I know who is so willing to share her laughter and love of life with everyone. And simply put - she's just way cool!!! Just imagine - wild hair - sometimes multi-colored - rarely brushed - long skirts, leggings, army boots, about three layers of shirts and huge jewelry - and a smile from ear to ear - well, that's Frannie.
And here are some of her sweet lil' creations that she brought to me today to put in the shop. I was so excited - she knows I like bright colors - so she dressed them "cheery".
Aren't they cute - all sittin' there together.
I think this is my favorite - 'cause she's all dressed in red, of course.
This might be Frannie in "mini me" fashion. That hair - well, it's just her - hehe
Actually - that hair is why I looooove this doll - 'cause it is actually made with yarn handmade by other dear friend, Luna. She makes gorgeous yarn at her farm!!!
This one is a lil' ray of sunshine...
And a couple more all nestled in. You can see some of Frannie's wonderful past creations by clicking on Sister's Mercy's Home... over in my favorites list - it's worth the trip.
You know that wonderful salt dough we are always using. Well, these were my latest creations with salt, flour and water and I thought I'd share them with you. I had actually made flowers too but I sold them before I got a picture - oops, sorry.
...Hanging from the branches...
....buzzin' 'round in the tree...
...and a lil' ladybug necklace on gingham ribbon.
I'm sorry that I've been gone for a few days. I'm "busy as a bee" this week with Mother's Day coming up so I appreciate you all being patient with me. After this week - maybe I'll be able to breathe again - and I'll get back on track.
Now, I'm back to addressing all my newsletters. Wish I could send you ALL one.
Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping in!
