I'm early posting this on Monday...why? I dunno. Just thought I'd get a head start on Tuesday maybe? LOL There are 'ruby reds' in each of my photos....:::raspberries::: Ha, ha. LOL

If you follow me here you'll know that for the last month I've been slowly constructing a new witch doll for Halloween. It was a fun project-- I finished it over the past weekend, and wanted to begin showing you the work in progress...then, come Friday for Show n Tell, I will have photos of the doll to share once I get the pictures off the camera and uploaded on the blog. I began by painting the face and hands. Then, started building from the plastic cone up to dressing her. Many times her head and arms/hands were taken off to 'build' and construct, using lacy black/orange/white and red print for her clothes, red fingernails, pastel green for the skin, etc. etc. I like the results. She turned out pretty well, considering this is only the 3rd time one was made---

COME BACK FRIDAY FOR SHOW N TELL to see her, finished!! And in regards to Witch Hazel, nope...didn't name her Hazel. But, I did name her as I do all my 'buddies'.
