I have complied a few pics of my Birdhouse Shrine Doll... still a W.I.P.
His paper hat (with metal grommets on each side) is full of illustrations
and music from a vintage German children's book.
The gold heart hangs in one of the open window panes,
near a reproduction metal keyhole on the door.
I really love the sentiment "forget me not"
and often incorporate it in my assemblages and dolls.
It is on coffee-stained paper, enclosed by a metal frame.
The small, gold heart that hangs in the window frame is paper clay.
Inside the door are my quail eggs...
I found some vintage doll stockings that fit perfectly
on his skinny, painted legs!
The vintage shoes were one of those "finds"... though I had to
add some shoe buttons that had been lost over the years.
The birdhouse shrine is finished... now, to work on that head of his!
Excuse the "spill-over" on the photos but I hated to crop or downsize them...
Wishing you wellness, in the week ahead! Daryle
