My Theater Dolls in The Knights of Columbus Art Show

Recently my Theater Dolls had the 
honor of being in a local art show. 
It was an exciting event for me to 
be a part of! 
I was entered into the 3D category and 
The experience was a fun one.   

I had 3 dolls entered

My Ballet Doll

The Baroque Doll 

 and Madelyn the Christmas Doll.

It was fascinating seeing all the different 
types of art in the show. 

I took some quick snapshots of 
the show.

This is the prize winner in the 
3d catagory that I was a part of. 
These were handmade vintage 
Christening Gowns. Very beautiful.   

The all around prize winner of the show 
was for the painting you see of the Jazz 

There were lots of interesting entries.

Many different styles of art. 

A really exciting thing happened 
at the show. 
 A lady walked up to 
me and said "Well looks like you've 
taken the prize of "the most sold" today". 
I said "What do you mean?" 
She said "You sold all three of your 
dolls... to the same buyer
I was in total shock, I didn't have a clue. 
  She said "AND she's a doll collector and 
has over 3000 dolls. Once she likes your 
dolls she becomes a repeat buyer." 
Once again in total shock.
I was introduced to the buyer 
and she wanted to come home with me 
 and see my other dolls. 
(Thank God I keep the house tidy!)

So she came and browsed through my 
studio and spotted some things for 
future purchases. 
I looked at her hubby at one point and 
said quietly "I'm sorry", in a kidding way. 
He replied "That's okay, I'll just build 
around them!" What a sweet thing to say
It was lots of fun being a part of a
art show and meeting new people.  

I've also had a recent sale of one of my 
paper peacocks... 

          to a gal that wanted to transform it 
into a mask. 

She sent me some photos of what she created.

 Amazing isn't it? 

 What a creative artsy costume!

     They make a lovely couple! 
Hope she won a prize for BEST MASK 

Well that's all from my little studio 
for now. 

Remember the HOLIDAYS are FAST 
approaching and we have some 
fine Etsy Shops on our sidebar for 
you to click on and browse. 
You might find that perfect gift that 
everyone will "Oooo and Aaaah" over!

Hope you're having a wonderful Fall.   

Love you all! 
Marie xoxo
