Not so good weekend

Isabelle thank you so much for the suggestions. They are great only problem is my mum doesn't entertain anymore and my mother in law I know will store it away in her cupboard and say oh it is too lovely to be used LOL!   I think I will have to  think of something more practical. Thanks for the suggestion Well the start to my weekend has not been very good. On Friday while returning from work someone knocked our car from behind while we were stationary. Then on Saturday someone reversed into our car  in the supermarket car park! They say trouble comes in threes. I sincerely hope not. But luckily both the times the knock wasn't too bad but still there are a couple of dents to the car what a pain!
Kitchen is still not complete but at least it is workable now.





The good news is I have actually finished my fairy. Haven't got a name for her yet. But she is fairy of the undergrowth. She has emerged to the light to see for herself what the above the undergrowth world is like. She has heard that there are lovely beautiful things above. She doesn't have pretty cloths and her cloths keep getting caught in the undergrowth hence her cloths are tattered and she has bit of folliage clinging to her. The fairies above the undergrowth sprinkle her with fairy dust to make her look presentable as she certainly can't visit the Fairy Queen in tattered cloths. I think she is not at home in the new look she has got hence that rather lost look on her face

She's LOVELY! I think she looks more like she has emerged from the undergrowth saying, "Here I am, behold my beauty, one and all!" The colors are stunning & I love the touches of nature that hint at her story! Shashi, you always end up putting things together with the most charming results!

Wow- Shashi, is is to die for gorgeous! Oh, my,I just love her! everything about her from her lovely face to her incrediable costume.

What a bummer about your car- I hate getting dents in my car. But luckily no one was hurt.

My kitchen remodeling started today- 2 walls has been knocked down and one has been rebuilt. Still a long way to go but it's a start.
Peace-

Shashi,

Your doll is wonderful you did such a great job. What a diffrence to see the finished doll after seeing various parts over the past couple of weeks. I especially like her shoes. Please enjoy your trip home to India too.

She is lovely! Maybe she is sad because she has realized that she has missed all the beauty aboveground.

This is a different direction for you and it is such an success! Everything about her is spectacular!

Bravo!

this is so great ! You did an amazing job making this fairy ! And she comes out in the light just before Christmas, when there's decorations and such... lucky her !

Sorry about your car, I don't know why people are crazy on the road these days...

Congratulations Shashi, she is gorgeous. I love her story as well. You've done such a great job. I love her expression, half surprised, half daunted... I love her hair and her hat! And the flowers on her skirt...

She is wonderful.

Sorry to hear about your car though... :o(

Bravo, Shashi. Your fairy is stunning. When I first saw her expression, i said, "There's a girl with attitude!" She has a mind of her own, and she will go where she pleases. Her flower cap and ruby shoes are my favorite details. How many hours did you spend creating her? And is she yours to keep or are you gracing her to live with a special friend?

Sorry to hear about your car. I was in 2 car accidents one year. No fun, but thank God you're okay.

Hi Shashi - I'm way back here in 2006 (don't know if u will see this comment or not)....as I had some free time and thought why not go back and see some of your other dolls. I'm enjoying your archives and this doll is gorgeous! Who knows I may work my way through all your years of blogging your dolls some day. If I lived near you I think I would definitely take a class from you, both for your dolls and that beautiful jewelry you make.
