Why Won't June Act Like a Little Lady?
I know, I usually like to show a sampling of items from a shop I'm featuring. In the case of the wonderful Amy of tinyviolet, I'm so captivated by how she created and presented a doll named June that this post is ALL about June! Read on...
"Hello, June! June is the middle of three sisters, and her nickname is Junebug. She's a tomboy, preferring a nice tall tree to climb or a pickup game of baseball with the neighborhood boys to tea parties or anything "froo froo". You won't find ribbons in her hair unless it's picture day, and even then only until a moment after the insufferable deed is done.
Junebug is one of a kind and she has dark brown hair. Her body is made of upcycled baby clothes. (Mom tries to dress Junebug and Little Sister Janine the same, even though they are not twins.) The heart on the front of her dress is a real pocket for storing frogs, jacks, and treasure maps! :)
Junebug measures approximately 16 inches long and her sweet face is handpainted. She's a very helpful sort of child, although she does tend to shun any clothing she may deem excessive (once June's shoes were inexplicably found in the freezer behind some ears of corn)."
I also especially enjoy the hair and meaning behind Coral, a peaceful doll with a relaxed expression. Please visit her by clicking on her name....
