Here are two mesmerizing videos from the fashion House of Dior that came out this past week. They're glimpses into the new "Le Petit Théâtre Dior" exhibition in Chendgu, China which features exquisite vintage couture dresses in miniature form. I have an upcoming post about my visit last year to see the Théâtre de la Mode exhibit at the Maryhill Museum, which is related, so I couldn't help but share these. Visit the Dior website for more photographs/videos.

Happy belated New Year :) Nothing new to report at the moment other than I'm working on trying to get rid of a lingering cold that refuses to go away. However, that hasn't stopped me from starting a few new dolls and experimenting with a new set of gorgeous Sennelierwatercolors.
Here are a few other things inspiring me at the moment:
I will have ten Art Doll ornaments available for purchase in my Etsy shop this morning at 11:30 am Pacific/ 2:30 Eastern time. Any U.S. orders placed Friday or Saturday morning, will be sent out by this Saturday (USPS deadline for Priority Mail packages to arrive by Christmas Eve). Any order sent overseas will obviously not arrive by Christmas and will be shipped First class International. If you are new to my Etsy shop, I will list the dolls at the time above and you will need to refresh that page until you see the dolls appear on your screeen. I urge you to review my Policies section if you have any questions about payment, shipping, how my dolls are constructed, etc.
~General Doll Description~
These hanging dolls are slightly larger than my previous ornaments~they are 11.5"-12" in length and the black ribbon is approx. 2.5". Each is dressed in various silks that I hand stenciled with gold metallic paint and dye. The hair is made of premium Suri Alpaca and is decorated with silk cording and paper flowers that are handmade and painted with watercolors & acrylics . The dolls shoes are painted gold and leggings are black. They wear handmade tassels and the black satin ribbon reads "Du Buh Du Designs".
