When I went to my Cape Cod storage unit, one thing I brought home was this doll trunk which I've had since I was a child.
I always forget what is in things that are packed away. So I was surprised to find this spirit doll I made maybe 12-13 years ago. I had taken a "Women Who Run With The Wolves" class and one assignment was to make a doll which represented ourselves.
Those are some Tibetan skull beads. Note the white hair.
She has a blank notebook on the left side of her belt and a little velvet purse on the right. In the purse is her own doll, some seeds, money and a lucky stone.
Also in the suitcase were these Ginny dolls. I've always loved them. Now, I must say I didn't really play with dolls all that much, but I like to have them around.
Hopper asked me to quote from the Poesie book I found at the yard sale. So, I opened it up and took a look. This is what I found. Every page but one is written in a foreign language. I am guessing Norwegian. This is because Britt-arnhild from Norway posted about Poesie books (see her January 26th post) and also because there was a newspaper clipping inside about someone named Dahl. Last night I began reading a Norwegian crime novel and one of the characters last name was Dahl. So that's the way my mind works: hmmmm, maybe this is Norwegian.
Here is the one page in English. Click to enlarge.
