Another Doll Finished

Her name and story haven't come to me yet - but here she is!  She sits on an antique wooden spool from a closed GA cotton mill, is dressed in upcycled clothes and her arms are vintage perm rods (or vintage rollers.)

GAWD I can't even imagine doing a perm on metal with todays perms! Zzzztttt! Your hair would go up in a puff of smoke!

RIP My Sweet Seanda

and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for 
that which has been your delight." - Kahlil Gibran

Miz Elfriede Thornypaynebottom

Meet Miz Elfriede Thornypaynebottom, who has recently taken up residence at Mockingbird Manor.  She is waiting for her new mansion to be built and we just happened to have room for her here.  I'm not one to tell what's been said about Miz Elfriede but it's all so shocking if it's indeed true.

It seems that Miz Elfriede has not one, not two, not three but FIVE dead husbands behind her! All have mysteriously died on her one. by. one.  Poor thing we really should be trying to comfort her since husband #5 Mr. Thornypaynebottom dropped dead as a door nail at their breakfast table not two weeks ago!

Miz Elfriede says she can't bear to be in that home anymore where her sweet Mr. Thornypaynebottom was found blue with his eyes bulging and tongue hanging out of his head.  That's why she's having another home built.   By the time it's finished I'm sure she'll have her claws into someone else ready to be husband number SIX.  Every silver lining has a cloud but Miz Elfriede seems to leave her clouds quite tarnished. Oh! Please don't let her know I said all  that!  The last thing I want is to be found dead with my eyes bugged out and tongue black as that woman's heart!

Miz Lottie Whakyerbak

Meet little Miz Lottie Whakyerbak.  While she may look as if butter couldn't melt in her mouth, be careful not to make her mad as It is rumored that Miz Lottie has a horrible temper.  Screeches as loud as a banshee that can be heard two streets over while she's kicking whoever or whatever is within her reach. Don't dare turn your back on her or you could find yourself face down on the ground with her all over you - or worse! At the bottom of the staircase with a broken least so I've heard. 

Terrible accidents have a way of happening to those who do not give her what she wants!
