So, I've been working on this doll for quite some time... It is comprised of many different recycled elements:

silk rose
bed spring
wooden dowel
wooden shuffle board puck
torn brown bag w/decoupage
doll clothing package dress form
scrapped upholstery fabric & trims

I gifted her to the interior decoration place that gives me all of my fabric, trims & wallpaper books galore!!!! This lovely piece has a place front & center in the store.. I will try to get a picture of her in her new abode... ;)
