I did something really stupid, so of course I had to tell sherry of http://ediemariesattic.blogspot.com/ And of course she said I should post it,so here it is.
The first thing I always do in the morning is put lotion on my hands and face. I did not sleep well,so I did not realize what I was doing. I proceeded to rub the lotion all over my face and arms, when I smelled something not quite right .Hmmmmmmmmm. What in the world (not exactly what I said). I looked at the tube, lo and behold ...instead of rubbing Avons Honey Lemon body balm...LOL...I was rubbing BOUDREAUX'S Butt Paste on myself...LOL. I don't know how many of you know what butt paste is, but down here, its a cream that you rub, where else, on your BUTT. Its for rashes and such as that. Most convalesent homes use it on their patients. Anyway I've been using it on my little dog Hobie. You see she has bad skin allergies. It kind of numbs the areas you put it on, LIKE IT DID MY FACE !!! I thought Sherry would never stop laughing. Anyway that is my tail, I mean tale of woe. It took me forever to wash that crap, dog gone it, I mean that paste off me.
I want to post a few dolls that I made a few yrs ago. I always wanted to make Asian dolls but never could find the porcelain heads to make them. So what I did was alter some of the faces of porcelain head I already had. I kind of sanded thier faces off and redid them as best I can. I'm not an artist, don't claim to be. Anywho... The first picture shown is not supose to be Asian , but more of the islands I guess. Any of you who have ever been to Bay St Louis on the coast might remember this. For its not their anymore. There were a couple of well known places on the Bay that got washed away during Katrina. I know all of you heard of the bridge that was completely gone. Well this is the spot I'm talking about. There was a bar called the Firedog Saloon ,a famous restarunt called Tripanies, great shops. In one of these cafes was a murial on one whole wall. The picture was of this doll you see here. I'm glad that I made this doll, because most records of it is forever gone. The elderly lady who painted this murial has passed also. She painted this when she was a much younger woman. She also use to teach belly dancing and was quite famous around our area. She taught my daughter belly dancing.
About the doll...I made everything except the head and limbs.I did sculp the blue parot. Not the smaller ones. In fact thats what this scene is called The Blue Parot. The vignette I crated believe it or not is almost identical to the huge murial.
I would love to pass this award to all my friends that I've been blogging with.You all deserve it.
