Rag Dolls



I am really trying to get my studio back in some kind of order since my last flash flood where water ran in under my back door and covered my studio floor. What a disaster. I have mopped it twice now and still it needs to be gone over again.
Anyway as I was moving things around I got to thinking about where I got my little rag dolls and how I have redressed all of them except for the angel doll with sticks for wings.
This first little doll is a painted leather face doll I got at a art show in Mt Vernon Illinois , Arts In The Park I think it was called way back in 1990's

                                                                                   

I know this is not popular anymore but I can't help but still think they are cute.
This doll I redressed her in old white dollies because I wanted everything in my  playstudio white or painted white,I even made her a necklace since at the time I was trying my hand at making altered art jewelry necklaces.

This is the old country angel from years gone by, see her button on her cap ,which I can't believe I didn't change it to a white button

Here is a little  pitiful doll I made I guess back in the 1980's LOL I even put her little hair knots on, she has two old baby dresses on her. I can't believe she hasn't gone in a yard sale to  trash can


 I have two of the painted face dolls so one I dressed as a ballerina


They are hanging from a antique coat rack

  5. They all have such cute little faces. Each with a different personality. I don't know if they are popular or not popular now, but they sure are cute.

  6. Such a sweet collection of dolls you have. I made a rag doll for my daughter in the eighties. We called it her Hobby girl after Holly Hobby. II think I love doll clothes more than the dolls! But yes, I like them all white. So nice to have a visit from you!

  8. They really are sweet, and to think you made some of them decades ago! I'm sorry you had some water damage and hope it doesn't happen again.

  9. Dolls may not be popular right now, but trust me; they will be again. I say, who cares! Hang on to the things you love. I have a doll or two that I hand painted the faces years ago tucked away somewhere. lol! Couldn't bear to toss them. I think your collection is sweet and I love the one that mentioned trashing. Never my friend! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
