Veggie Dolls

I've been having too much fun with potato mashers lately.  First I created a bunch of angels for the upcoming holiday shows and then I went into a vegetative to speak.

I had all these artificial veggies sitting around and just had to do something with them.  They looked like perfect heads to me, so off I went!

They have lots of spunk and attitude, just like their creator.

It was really fun decorating the faces with all kinds of odds and ends and trying to see how silly I could be...and I've got lots of practice with that.

The arms and abnormally long fingers are wired so they can be fully posed.  

I hate to just have something sitting around the kitchen and not being busy with their hands.  Why does Left Brain come to mind right now...hmmmm?

This one is a really hot tomato!

They really make the perfect dolls as they stand up on their own and well...I don't know.  I just like them.  It's part of that constant "what could I do with that?" that runs through my head.

This one has a potato for a head and an old potato chip bag for her clothes.  Oh the things I must do for my art...eating potato chips to get their clothes!

Her hat is a wire scrubby for those hard to clean pots and pans.  I wasn't using it because, well...I don't dirty a lot of pots and pans.  When you don't cook the kitchen stays pretty clean.

Well, that's enough for now.  I need to see what She Devil is's too quiet in there.

Long Live the Queen of Potato Mashers

  1. Your mashers are gorgeous! Makes me want to be careful about squeezing the handle too hard when I mash my potatoes! I must say, the artificial veggies sure do look real in the photos.

    I'm at work and have to start breakfast for the Mrs now. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
