Valentines Goodies!!!

I know it's still January, but I just love making Valentine's Day things. I've already sold bunches of Valentine's dollies. This one's a Valentine Clown. I thought I would kind of 'copy' the style of the Vintage Valentine image w/ the little clowns. I think they're so sweet and folksy.

I'm really not sure about the colors I used for her though. Sage and Cream are so popular, but they might not 'say' Valentines to buyers. So far she's listed on eBay but no watchers. Hmmmm....

Now this little gal went for some pretty big bucks (compared to what my dollies usually go for). I was thrilled. I guess maybe calling it "Chocolate" polka dots made people think of Valentine's Chocolate??? I don't know, but I loved it.

I really enjoyed making this sweetie. I love swans! Randy's Swan & Gnome (from my last post) was a big hit! We already have people writing asking for more. He's working on another set, but this swan is black. It's beautiful.

It's a BLUSTERY dayt here today. The wind is just HOWLING outside. The temps are supposed to plummet down to below zero overnight. ICK! Well, enough for today. Hope you all have a beautiful day.

Oh... sending out a special PRAISE THE LORD for my sweet friend Cora! God Bless you!
