Is it Wednesday?

I've been keeping busy inside while it's been gray and rainy outside. Here it is a week and a half into June and it still seems like spring here. Soon I hope to be spending more time doing summer like things like working in my garden and having cook outs in the back yard. Until then I'll keep working at making bodies for those heads on sticks.

Here is my latest. I know she's not the prettiest little thing but she does have a certain charm.











I've always had a warm spot for the members of the Addams family and when I started working on the head of this doll I knew right away she was to be Wednesday. I don't always know what a piece is going to be when it's completed. Sometimes I just start sculpting and wait to see what or who is going to emerge. My sister thinks I should make Pugsley to keep Wednesday company but for the moment she's going to have to make friends with some of the gang already living here.







It looks like Bellamine has made Wednesday feel right at home.

I've also been working on bodies for the three Santa heads I showed you a while back and hope to have at least one finished in the new week. So, I've cleaned up the sewing mess and will be moving to the sculpting work table where I'll concentrate of finishing a Santa or three. 

Have a wonderful week and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,
Maddy

Ah, all Wednesday needed was the love of a teddy bear and who else better to love her than Bellamine.

Look, she looks so happy now...

Heaps of Hugs ♥

Oh my stars, I just love Wednesday. She is fabulous and I think very pretty. You know (said the Oz salesperson), I think Wednesday would make a lovely young Elphaba in a dress up with my grand bears. So I'll leave you with a Pooh think on that one. Oma Linda

You do great faces...love your Wednesday girl!! But, I am envious of your rain. I think a day or so of rain would reset my creative button.

Julie said...

Wow you are so talented. As soon as I saw her, I said Addams family - a perfect Wednesday. J

Well bless my socks. Bellamine you are so good to make Wednesday feel warm and Welcome. She is a very special girl, who loves the creepy crawlies.
I'm like Katy, the tune won't stop in my head.

Dearest Maddy,
Hello, pretty and lovely Wednesday♡♡♡ Yes, and how cute and generous of Bellamine to make her feel at home. She is really gorgeous and it must be so exciting to know for you when you found whose image you got emerged(*^_^*)
I just feel sorry to myself that I know of the " Addams family", but never seen it.

Hope you have summer soon, my dear bs.
Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Well she is just too cute! I think you need to do the whole family. Maybe start with Cousin It ~ he/she should be pretty easy. ;)

As soon as I saw this one, I thought Adams family, she may not be cute, but she sure is a great representation of the Adams :-)

Jan Conwell said...

Hey she's cool! Kinda looks like a cross between Wednesday Adams and Lillith Krane from Cheers. :~)

Maggie said...

Wednesday is a little doll... She looks a little bit like Morticia. Love her headless dolly, too. Bellamine doesn't seem too creeped out, sitting there playing with a decapitated doll.

Mina said...

Oh, I love the Addams family! I see you even made Marie Antoinette. You did a wonderful job on these dolls. I love the charm and character of Wednesday. I think you captured her perfectly and honestly, as soon as I saw her I thought, "she looks like Wednesday Addams." Isn't Bellamine a love to welcome her? Hugs to you always, my lovely friend. Mina

I think everyone loved the Addams family. I would agree it's definitely Wednesday. I wonder what Bellamine thinks of her. It looks as though they are going to be friends for sure.
