Introducing: The Asters
So, let the show begin. Today I'm introducing . . . the Aster's. Here they are dancing on tippy-toes, linked arm in arm, sisters united, swaying along with the waltz of the flowers. There are four (nearly identical) handmade dolls in this series, two green-eyed and two violet eyed; labeled, respectively, one through four, with signed ID hang-tags. And pretty pink organza bags of potpourri.
If you've been following my turkey feathers blog, you may know that I make big batches of potpourri every year. I gather different varieties of roses and lavender from my garden and store it in large vintage hat boxes. The recipe I use was published in my first craft-sewing book, Blanket Statement (as one of the pillow projects required stuffing with potpourri). I'm mentioning it again now because my Flower Girl Dolls are thus equipped with their own pretty sachets. It seemed fitting. The dolls not only look like dancing flowers but smell lovely too!
