Water Inspired Dolls Display

Fish Brooches
Fish, mermaids,  fishermen, water goddesses, ocean creatures and a couple of majestic frogs were all there.
The doll making group I belong to, Hello Dollies, was a featured artist at the Dobell Art and Crafts festival  last weekend. The little colourful fish which were made at one Saturday meeting were the most popular amongst the crowd, with most of them  being sold  on the first day of the festival.  Here are a few images of the dolls on display... no wonder there were lots of oohs and aahs....

It was my job to take down the display. I did so reluctantly. What a wonderful watery world!
