Valentine Swap Doll from Lee Barker






She is sitting on a beaded heart pillow, and holding the same style beaded heart in her hands. Her arms raise, as if to give you her heart! Thank-you, Lee, for all the thoughtfullness and care that went into her...you are going to go far with this medium! And in the midst of your surgery, as well!
Interesting, but she looks like an old photo I have of my greatgrandmother in her 40s...that would have been in the 1920s..my great gran was the one who first got me interested in creating. She could tat and crochet like nobody's business- talking the whole while to whoever was there.
I still miss her, and she left this world when I was 16....

You sure were blessed by a beautiful doll. Lee is amazing in her beading and looks like clay too. Your Gran sounds like she was a special lady.
Hugs,
