It's been a long time since my last posting. I have been a little busy moving, relocating and creating more artwork, so now it's time to get caught up. The Farmhouse renovation is complete and the interior decorated.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

We are almost done with the renovation of the old farmhouse, soon to be my art studio & gallery.

It has been a labor of love. We still need to finish the plumbing, install our kitchen antique dry sink (with running water), change out all the hardware on all the doors to the antique door knobs and plant our landscaping. This project has been in progress for the last two and a half years. We should be finished by February 2010 with all the interior work and we will be doing the landscaping in the spring of 2010.

Olivia Gets Her dress

Well it has taken me a long time to finish Olivia; however she is finally done. I broke my foot about four weeks ago and it has definitely slowed me down. I never realized what you go through when you don't have the use of both legs. Living on crutches for 4 weeks without putting weight on my left foot has really been an unpleasant experience. The Orthopedic says it will be another 6 weeks of this ordeal. God willing I will heal and move on with life.

Getting back to Olivia, she has been a labor of love. I have really enjoyed creating her and I am looking forward to my next doll project. I have developed a passion for early antique dolls so I am sure that the next one will be created in an early doll fashion as well.

Thank you for visiting my blog and following Olivia's progress. I have created another blog site exclusively for my doll making projects so please visit in the future for all my future early doll creations.

Hey! Olivia Has Legs! Great Arms Too!

Well, I finally got a chance to add arms & legs to Olivia this weekend. Boy, what a to do! I think she turned out pretty cool nonetheless.

Next is her fashionable dress, designed in the style of the mid 1800's. I have already purchased the fabric for her fashionable gown, which is a reproduction of an antique fabric. (I think I am getting carried away, but I love it.)

Who knows, maybe I found my new profession in the next phase of my life. (Having an age crisis this week, Ugh!)

Olivia loves to show off her marvelous shoes. I hope you enjoyed the photos of the on going project with Olivia, so comment and tell me what you think!
