Did I ever say I LOVE the Caged Santos Dolls from Retro Cafe Art? Well I must as this is number five I think. Sometimes I create and then find a Patron Saint to match the theme. But this time I knew I was going to create St Francis of Assisi. This medium sized doll, standing 10.5" tall is painted with a crackled white surface and antiqued in blue.
I added lots of nature related embellishments, leaves, flowers, butterflies, birds and yes even real acorns. Continuing my goal of 'using the stash' I have now moved to my jewelry box. Being retired I infrequently wear much of the jewelry I've amassed. On the back is a piece I used to wear frequently (think science teacher)
The nest inside the cage has real bark and a lovely blue bird. I think St Francis would approve.
