Groovy



I found these today for a steal! They are porcelain dolls of “retro” Kermit and Piggy. Kermit is cheesy, but Piggy I adore. All of the Piggy things I have just don’t seem to capture the right sense of her but this is perfect! Yes, I already have more Muppet things than any one person needs, but how could I not have Miss Piggy meets Hairspray? (Yes, I did finally see it! Love it.)

‘Cause you can’t stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna
But I never ask why

And if you try to hold me down
I’m gonna spit in your eye and say
That you can’t stop the beat!

New "Kids"



A little inspiration struck… Don’t know if it was state fair or the goats I saw at the farmers market, but I needed to make this little goat. Isn’t she cute? She is a variation on the puppet pattern and just shy of 9 inches tall. Her dress is reversible and will close in the back with a snap. I didn’t do much detail on the dress because I had an issue with the snap-put-on-thingy. Piece of junk. I threw it away. I will look for a better one. So this dress has half a snap. Grumble. I am thinking to do little animals with a small wardrobe – reversible dress, coat, scarf. Maybe even list some extra clothes separately, like a fancy party dress, jeans & a t-shirt.
So here’s my question… Is a goat too strange? I love goats. The 3 Billy Goats Gruff is one of my favorite stories. So I think they are great. What do you think?

Welcome!


I have done a complete redesign of my blog space. I spent most of the weekend tweaking and fussing and I think it is ready to go. I switched the “engine” that processes everything to blogger, having realized that it really is easier than the cludgy old interface I was using. Thank you greymatter, you served me well.

  • You can still find my old blog entries in the “My Old Blog” link in the right sidebar.
  • I have a pretty new book list that should be much easier to keep up to date.
  • I will have categories that you can click on to see all of my entries about “Lucy” or “enamels”. (You can’t see those really yet, but as I make more posts you will!)

Let me know if you see anything that is broken. After you look at it a few thousand times, you stop seeing things.

EDIT: I see that uploading pictures is not working. grrr. I am working on that.
EDIT 2: Think I fixed that….
