Day 22: Reverse Shopping

If you are a creative person, you are often a collector as well.   I have collected a number of dolls for inspiration that I will be selling to go on the next leg of their journey.   One is a French Fashion that came along for the ride when I bought my antique Izannah Walker doll.  You can see images of this French Fashion doll here. and here   I hae since cleaned her up a bit and will need to take new pictures.  She has a crack that goes from the top of the head down to the right eye socket.  She is a project doll, for sure. But she is still a pretty doll and in the hands of someone who loves FF's will shine, I know it.  

Rethinking goals and inspirations is a very good thing to do for any artist.  I can't do everything.  I am carefully choosing some things to finish.  I have enough ideas and inspiration to keep me busy for YEARS.  
I kind of love that you can see a preschool apple toy in the same picture as a French Fashion doll.  That is my life in a nutshell right now.  :-)
