Enter Pinterest. If you aren't familiar, it is an online bulletin board that you can 'pin' things you love, recipes, home remodel, you name it, it's on Pinterest. My sister, Rosanne, is the Pinterest Queen! When ever I open it, Rosanne's latest pins always come up, if she has been gone, I know she's home by Pinterest pins!
Last Thursday she gave me an early birthday present, this is called an Altered Doll, made from different things and so many that are special to me!
The western hat, a tribute to my love of horses and years of showing.
The little trowel she is holding for my love of gardening.
The body is a tin box of French, for my last name, fish food for my backyard pond filled with goldfish.
"And she had callouses on her hands" on the little tin tart skirt!
The little horse shoe decorating her black dancing shoes.
Pearls and lace for my wedding dress.
This is SUCH a TREASURE! Thank you, thank you, I will cherish it forever!! Love Julie
