Yesterday Jan Conwell came for a visit. We do not live really close so I always appreciate it when she drives to see me. It was a simply beautiful fall day. Jan and I put up my two Christmas trees in the living room. I will straighten them out some and they will be ready for ornaments. She also helped me put up some other stuff. I do not get on ladders or even step stools when I am alone here. We ate downtown at my favorite sandwich shop.
I enjoyed seeing all the dolls in progress she brought. Most do not have their body suits on yet. Some will have a bit more antiqueing or aging. But the lovely little heads Jan has sculpted are dear. One will live with me in a few weeks.
Three that came are not Izannah types. Jan makes artist dolls of an amazing variety, some sweet like the lovely black child pictured and some off the wall like her doll "Good Bones" which can be found on Jan's blog. Jan not only thinks out of the box, I don't think she has ever been in a box to start with!.
