Is it smiling at me?

I posted this on my other blog for friends and family Plaidpoppy's News and Updates and thought I would re-post it here as well.

Paige cam running into the house "Mom come see!" I know when words like that come out of her mouth that I need to grab my camera. This little guy was hanging out on out truck. They are not the easiest thing to take photos of, I am not ever sure where to try to focus. They are so delicate that I am never sure if I am in focus, so I take a million photos and hope that one is crisp.

The face on this guy is very cute. Looks like he is smiling and belongs in a Pixar film. Click the photos to enlarge them.

Icicle doll Swap ~ Lana

I am so excited to show what a wonderful Icicle doll I received from the very talented Lana. It was funny that we both sent Dolls that were created with the Sea/Ocean in mind, I love that.

The way she did her face is wonderful I love stitch work, and the shells she added to her tail is wonderful, how clever. I will treasure her. Thanks Lana I love her!

Ocean Icicle doll

I wanted to try to make this Icicle doll a little different. She had a hat made out of coral I found on the beach and I also added hair to her this time. I love using found objects when I make dolls and I thought this might be a nice thing to add. She is off to her new home and I hope she will be loved.
