Some time ago, when I found out I had to have surgery, I took this little dress form and cut the tummy out. It finally occurred to me that these little gals are hollow and I could maybe make something cool. I just kept thinking of making something to say, "Just because I don't have my uterus anymore, doesn't mean I'm still not a woman". I was really crushed and disturbed about the whole idea at first. But with all of the other "stuff" that was going on, it all just had to be done. I will be better in the long run. In fact, I already am.
I have been obsessed with the cool theater collage sheets from Alpha Stamps. I really felt that this gal needed to be made into a theater, so I went through my stash to find the one that would fit the best. And of COURSE it is the "Theatre Francais". lol. After looking through some goodies, I came across this cool little baby that I have had for a while now. I don't remember where I got it though. I know there are similar ones at Retro Cafe Art and keep thinking that I got it from Kristin, who is the owner. She has such amazing, vintage dolls and I have spent a small fortune on her frozen Charlottes and her doll heads.
So, I would now like to present.....
"Le Bebe de Flottement Stupefiant"
"The Amazing Floating Baby".
My husband thinks I'm weird. But he knew that long before he married me, lol. I think it is cool as hell and LOVE how it turned out!
I had some other great embellishments from Alpha Stamps, like the center rose on the "theatres" neck. It's from the set Je t'Adore Accoutrements and the wonderful Brass Shell Corners, which I just can't seem to get enough of!
Hope you can appreciate my sense of humor on this one. I need to give the amazing baby a name now. Any suggestions?
Stay tuned.... I have this wonderful little house, all covered in vintage French ledger pages. I just have to figure out what theme to go for.
May you have an amazing day and thanks for stopping by! xoxo
