meet Rusty Annie

Looks like I found her in a little dirt lane outside a pig farm in Richlands!

Made from an old hessian sack I found in the green house, some rust nails from a friends fence,(I did ask him first before I removed them, oh now you all know I have a thing for rusty objects). Her nose is a piece of rusted metal found in our rusted metal stash. She is stuffed with remnants from my sewing.
Today I'll make her a little dress, hmmm I wonder what colour will match her complexion?

Hi Black Crow,

I love how you rethink and reuse things. You have one of the best imaginations I've come across. Have fun with your new found friends. I know that their new owners will.

Hugs, Euphoria

OMGosh I am so giggling right now! I love her and what a neat and fun idea! I do not think she is the cuddling type though LOL.

I heard the famous line from the movie Christmas Story when the little boy asks for a Red Rider BB gun and they all say "You'll shoot your eye out". Cept I see a little girl asking for this dolly and all the moms saying "no, you'll poke your eye out" LOL
