i finished an art doll...yesterday for a lady who gave me a bag of vintage spice containers on our local freecycle! she had a special container from her grandma...so i told her i'd make her a doll from it!

presenting LUCILLE!!!


lucille's body is a vintage anne page spice canister, she has glass and clay beaded legs and vintage rusty key arms...her head is felted and i braided a tiny braid that i wound for a grandma bun on the top of her head...hope she likes her!!!

Lucille is wonderful Barb!! I am sure that your friend will love her! The baker seems to have had a fab time once she got past the part about grinding up grasshoppers and I am glad to see that max didn't miss out!!
