Lady Head



I'm excited about the current acquisition of composition dolls.

Well, she is closer.....it's just the head for now. Isn't she lovely?

I have a funny story to go with her.
Hubby and I took a trek about the State of Maine on our anniversary this year.
We stopped at a barn set off the road, he had alot of wrought iron in the yard so I thought it would be worth it.

The poor gentleman owner,....as we entered his barn, he was in the corner struggling with an all glass showcase, he couldn't hook the back on the J board he'd mounted to the wall.

He blurted, "I'll give you 15% off anything in this store if you can give me a hand" After abit of laughter, Jack of all Trades jumped in.

In time the discount price jumped to 20% if they could mount the showcase WITHOUT breaking it (wanted to keep his girlfriend happy, she would cook supper). LOL


Of course I scouted while they busied themselves! I found this darling head on a lower shelf of a display cabinet, ah....

I let hubby look around (imagine she had her hair up in a gaudy ponytail!)
What! You don't see anything you want! Say, what about miss curly Q?
Let me see if she has any marks.

Nope. I got her for a steal anyway. C&G Design.

She looks a bit otherworldly to me with those light colored eyes, but very pretty hair. What are you going to do with her?

Funny story and if I had that gorgeous head of hair, it sure would not be in a ponytail!!!

My hair is in a pony tail as I type! That is my summer look! lol...

I have seen many headless dolls but rarely do I see a bodiless doll...

I cant wait to see what you will do with her...

I have the composition arms for her, I need the legs and they will be half limbs. I want a "kid" body. That's a leather body stuffed with sawdust. Not sure about the outfit yet, I'll have to look thru my collector books.

What a great little doll. Her eyes are a little freaky, though. LoL. They just stare at you. But other than that, her hair is great!

Beautiful hair. Gorgeous face, so angelic looking. It's almost like she is saying "why did you wait so long to come get me".

She'll have a perfect place to live.....hunker down Lola. Fay is arriving.
