Peek-A-Boo!

Introducing Charlotte and Bunny. Charlotte is a life size toddler mannequin that is made of heavy cloth on a wired armature with stitched hands and feet and can be posed in many positions. My goal was to bring her to life by painting her face and hair, dressing her in a fabulous antique dress, a linen cap, leggings and leather shoes and giving her a name. Here is Charlotte and Bunny along with a picture of her before she came to life.

  2. Thank you Mary. As much as I would love to keep her she will up for adoption. Mark and I are selling our house next Spring so we will be doing a major downsizing. I will be listing a lot for sale in the next year.

  3. Downsizing...I understand...really I do! But, it's a big step, and will be lots of work. For the past couple of years, I have been slowly going through things, discarding and giving away lots of things we no longer need or want. Some lucky person will love giving your sweet little Charlotte a new home!
