Memory Doll

My memory doll features the face of Great Grandma Emma. Every time I catch a glimpse of her family memories are sparked. Real feathers are added to her beautiful hat. Hung from her wire skirt are vintage family buttons. You can find wire dress forms like this at The Shoppe at Somerset. The stamped letter stencils represent the first letter from family names, first and last: N for Nugent; E for Eleanore; J for Joan and so on. Each glassine envelope hints to the contents of personal family mementos such as keys, stamps, pressed leaves and more. Silk flowers are the finishing touch helping to soften her features and adding a bit of nature

This doll was featured in the Summer 2006 issue of Inspirations magazine by Stampington & Co.
