Today I’ll keep rolling with some more dolls, then switch things up for the weekend. Denise Bledsoe does some adorable creatures. When Dana showed these to me I was struck by the character and whim that comes across in her work.  I was able to narrow down the following selections to share:

Jodi and Richard Creager have been working together for over 35 years, creating wonderful, one of a kind figures. These 1:12th scale doll art characters combine art with whimsy.  Here is a sampling of their work. Hope you enjoy it!

I just went through Mark James Porter’s entire blog to check out all of his sculptures (plus art and accompanying sketches).

I love his take on popular characters, such as the classic Alice in Wonderland favorites.

Look inside Humpty’s head. There’s knowledge in there!

A Child’s First Butcher Shop

Posted in antiques, dolls, meat with tags , , on August 5, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

This great article features an 1840′s miniature butcher shop, complete with a series of strung-up meats.

A few different theories surround this incredible creation. Some believe it was intended for presumably less squeamish children of the Victorian era, while others call attention to the popular trend of miniatures for adults at the time. Either way, it’s an intriguing artifact.

This 1900 model, on the other hand, was made by esteemed German toymaker Christian Hacker (definitely intended for children):

The Barbie Dream Hearse

Posted in absurd, death, dolls with tags , , , on June 21, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

I’m the kind of girl who stumbles upon pictures of The Barbie Dream Hearse by accident amidst my regular web perusals.

I forget what search made this come up, but I’m glad it did. From the website:

The Barbie Dream Hearse is a fun alternative to your regular means of transportation. What began as a simple play on words turned into a full-fledged business concept, serving Seattle area ladies (and self-confident gentlemen!) with a unique, avant-garde way to spend the night on the town.

I don’t have any immediate plans to be in the Seattle area (though I’d like to visit), but this shirt is going my wish list.

Has anyone ridden in the Barbie Dream Hearse? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
