sweet gypsy doll

My first altered doll- and a new found interest- a gypsy cottage style look. Lovely imperfect fabrics and found objects-pieces- discarded, forgotten. God takes the tattered pieces of our lives and makes something beautiful of it.I am not perfect, but I am beautiful- everything about me is covered by God's love and his sovereign grace- my shortcomings, my mistakes, my past, my future, my children, my husband, my needs, my desires.....my beautiful life!!! Thank you oh Father for your love for me! Please help me to share your sweet beauty and grace with others.
The pretty aqua-blue "skirt" is a dress from Moss Hill Studio collage sheet-I love Moss Hill Studio!!

I can see the Mosshill influence in this doll. Good job. I love using the old and making it new.
