Three’s a crowd

Zen and the art of doll making

Slightly Spooky

Hmm another doll, slightly more strange and less comforting than the last one, but I like it. She’s a bit naughty, with the see-through dress and all, can’t think who she must take after! I think the doll fixation has … Continue reading
