Frozen Charlotte

 It's been ages since I made a treasury, so it was high time that I did. What better subject for a cold winter's day but Frozen Charlotte?

Frozen Charlotte is a name used to describe a specific form of china doll made from c. 1850 to c. 1920. The name comes from the American folk ballad "Fair Charlotte", which tells of a young girl called Charlotte who refused to wrap up warmly to go on a sleigh ride and froze to death during the journey.

(More folk renderings may be found on Asmoen's YouTube channel)

Belatedly Windy

 I *finally* had a few spare moments to post on Etsy some of the pieces that I did for WindyCon 33 back in November. This year's theme was "Zombies!". While I had a lot of fun at the art show, things were a bit slower than usual due to Chicago having been the host city for World Con in August. For more information about the pieces shown, click on the photos for a link to their Etsy listings or visit my shop.
