Dear Miss 3 AM - your storage is so artful. How did you make the figurine tops? Paperclay? I love that you have dust.

The second picture reminds me of e. j. taylor's work a bit, or his reminds me of yours....

I have a date with inktense pencils next week. Have already experimented with them some. My biggest challenge is just leaving the marks there and not wiping them all away.

The button dolls are wonderful. Are you going to put them up in your shop? Dream on Meg.

WHOA! I LOVE those button dolls!
I'm going to try to make something like that for my niece for her birthday! (Of course it will be no where as cool as your work but) she always asks me to MAKE something for her and this year I was kinda at a loss as to what to make... so I'm going to use YOU for inspiration and put some twists on it...maybe I'll include some bats..(she's a very DARK girl LOL!) Love it! Thanks!

Must...turn... of..computer! Mom can'ts stop starin' at all your jars of goodies. She collects the same kind of stuff. What she plans on doin' with it? We're still waitin'. I thinks she should send it all to you and then fill up her jars with cookies and biscuits.

Loves,
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Unbelievable, Those queens are!

Is that what you call dust???
I must start calling mine something different...something thicker sounding :)

PS: that angel head is the best find! I found a big cornerstone with an 1800 date on it. Was told I could have it, but then I couldn't lift the damn thing into the car--Pish!

Susan said...

Love display of lovely friends. I have new tri-focals and I can't see any dust. You lie.

Ronnie said...

I am shaking my head in amazement at your dolls.
Sandy, these are astoundingly wonderfully beautiful and you are so humble and I believe you have no idea how great you are.

Sandy Mastroni said...

all I can say is thank you !!!!!!!

The dolls are fabulous...the dust is an added touch to let us know that you are human. A little dust never hurt anyone.

Janine said...

How hilarious are these lady dolls! They just make me smile.
I love the jars of buttons, I am reminded of how I used to pour my mothers buttons out onto the floor and examine each and every one.... I had forgotten about that until now.

Cathy said...

These are all amazing Sandy. Your house must be a treasure trove of...well...treasures...lol.
