Clare from Clare's Craftroom is hosting a new feature called Tuesday's Treasures. You are asked to blog about some thing you treasure and link to her site. Today I choose two things. The first is my Mom's glasses. When Mom passed away a couple of years ago I grabbed her glasses because to me they symbolize something quite intimate. After all she wore them all her waking moments. Wearing them she produced so many beautiful things and today I also choose this beautiful porcelain doll that she made for me. She made it from the very beginning. She poured the porcelain in the mold, cleaned, painted and fired the doll. Then she assembled her and made the clothing with no patterns. What you don't see in this picture is that there is a complete set of under garments on her, including the cutest little bra you have ever seen. Her shoes are also beaded lace. This picture shows a close-up of the beading on the front of the skirt. Click on the pictures if you would like to see them closer. Mom spent countless hours making each of her daughters a bride, all different and unique.
Thanks to Clare for hosting this, it good to look at your treasure and remember why they mean so much to you. Click here to go to Clare's blog and see more.
