The Girls

The girls are actually altered salt and pepper shaker dolls
I made for a swap in our
Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.
Their heads are from antique porcelain dolls who lost their bodies
a long, long time ago in Germany.
 I've given them crowns (the tall blonde has a fleur de lis crown!) and dressed them in some lovely vintage fabrics and adorned them with
assorted bits and baubles.
The girls will be traveling to their new homes tomorrow...
both of my swap partners happen to live in
Knoxville
so perhaps they'll get to visit
each other again.
Enjoy your Sunday!

So adorable Joanne. You know, out if all the swaps I have done, I don't think we have ever been partners, lol. Someday, Becs
