AFIC Gallery Pieces

I wanted to create something special for the upcoming Gallery Section of the AFIC Conference in OH...what to do...what to do... 

...for awhile now I have had the urge to create a doll that spoke of "being true"...someone that has precious words to tell you...wise...true.

...and I kept being drawn to my beloved stash of my vintage laces and trims...each shows the love in which it was made...from the heart.
Each piece of lace, fabric, trim tells a story...each has a past tale to tell and so, my figures were created to give you a hint of what they hold sacred in their hearts....true heart...

I wanted to create something that had a base of wood...earthy and grounded...words of wisdom  rounding the base and opposing that, use the lightest most delicate laces and pieces of treasures.
