Say,Say oh playmate...

My new play mate
Flea Market finds~ LOVE EM'


Cuff Experiment
Say say oh playmate (sing with me)
come out and play with me,
and bring your dolly 3
climb up my apple tree
slide down my rainbow (I can't hear you!)
into my cellar door
and we'll be jolly friends
for ever, more more more more more!

I bought a new book called Exhibition 36~Mixed Media Demonstrations and Explorations by Susan Tuttle. I don't buy books very often or magazines for that matter since I have so many but I liked this book because it had lots of contributors in all different mediums. My favorite artist and probably the reason I finally bought the book was JoAnnA Pierotti. I was smitten with her dolls and how free she is with her art. I couldn't wait to get into my studio and start painting on old dolls and doll heads and soldering. The Charlotte all dolled up is one of my new playmates inspired by JoAnna. Since I am teaching a reliquary class this Saturday at Piecemakers (seats still available) she will be another sample for the class.

This is amazing!! I love your foofed up dolly and all your flea market finds too. I always think that you in the States have better finds than us here, though the rumour is otherwise around...Enjoy your new stuff and have a great day!

What a cute post! Love the song! I used to sing that with a playmate I had since I was three and we are still friends to this day!

The doll you made is adorable and the vignettes of your flea market finds made lovely photos!

oh Robin, she is beautiful!
I'm so disappointed that I won't be able to take the class on Saturday ... the movers are coming that day and we'll be leaving for Portland on Sunday! I'll just have to figure out a way to get you up there to teach a class!!!
Thanks for all your creativity and teaching me how to do some very fun things ...
love you, elsa
