Last weekend, Dan, Ashleigh, Tangerine and I attended Earth Day in Atlanta, Indiana. It's an amazing outdoor festival filled with flea market booths and food trucks. One of the things I found was this metal doll bust with the word Minerva on it. I was told she was discovered inside the walls of an old house that was being remodeled. I immediately did some research on her and found that she is German and from the early 1900's.
I immediately thought about making a doll tree (like this one) out of her after touching her up with Maison Blanche paint.
So here she is after the paint.
After I sewed the tulle pieces that form the shape of the tree, I gathered some supplies. This was the fun part!
I made her a necklace and played with shawls for her to wear.
But I decided upon this one in the end.
Love these ladies and I'm going to have a difficult time parting with them.
