A Prim doll/Primative?
My sister sent me a couple of pictures of what people call prim dolls.I thought I'd try to make one.
Now my preference is an oil painted cloth doll .Vintage looking.1800 era.
The doll I made today is just ugly.I will share.But just so you know I do not make a habit of making ugly dolls.She is sort of a pumpkin head with a twist.She does like her corn husk doll.
Maybe she will grow on me but I doubt it.
What makes a doll prim? I have looked at lots of blog sites that are called prim.I have some things others would consider prim.I think they are just old.Don't get me wrong,I like some old things .Fact is I have a LOT of vintage things and a few real antiques.
I like to look at blogs with prim and colonial style decorating.But the furniture looks very uncomfortable with the straight backs.Then there is the very rustic primitive.?????My friend always says "we are all odd to each other"
When I see the magazine layouts with the new apartments trying to look old I can only think I hope that is not lead paint on all those chipped pieces people are using.
Now I have no certain style.I like STUFF all sorts of stuff -----not any one style. If I like it I find a place for it.
Eclectic would be a good word for our home.
My friends say they feel very at home here.That is what I like to hear.
I never have comments on my blog so I'm not sure anyone but Kate and Vicki read it.
I do like to blog.I'm not sure how to get more people to read my blog so I will keep blogging and looking at prim sites. Maybe I will make another prim doll.Maybe it will not be ugly.Thanks for reading.
