Love of Dawn

 Here are some of my Dawn Dolls. I have had a love for miniatures since my early years. I was at my cousins and he was practically a grown man. He had  a quart size  glass jar filled to the top with all kinds of fun miniatures. His collection included toys like the ones from gumball machines and from cracker jacks (back when they put real toys in their boxes). He let me play and play. I felt like I was in heaven! From that moment on I made up my mind to start my own collection. I was 8 years old. When I was 10 years old, Dawn was on the shelf of all the toy stores. I asked Mom to bring me one and she did. I remember being completely smitten by how beautiful and delicate she was (and is). My quest was on forever after that. When I look at everything I always wonder what else can I do with that? I love to make things with fabric, polymer clay,and anything that can be used to make a miniature.

Yes Chrissy, I made the Astros outfit. My son played baseball on the Astros team for 3 years. Little League of course.
