Poppy Pop-up Puppets!

It's time to make some poppy dolls again.  Yes, it's fun.  The dolls are just poppy heads, with poppy crowns.  Some rags are good for dresses.  These are pop-up puppets, so they can twist and turn, and swing their string arms.  Their hands are just knots. The stem is the stick that makes them bob up and down.  A lively pair,  Tillie and Leona, after the two sisters who  used to live across the valley, and planted the poppy bed.

FYI:  Two smart young women, Ursula and Rikkianne,  have a shiny new collection of modern design pillows, wallets, and other sundries, made of recycled canvas bank money bags, and some of their  own sweet silk screen designs.
This new collection was recently featured on Poppytalk style blog.  Pay them a visit (and yes, I'll disclose that one of the smart young women, Ursula, is my own daughter, who has a good eye for styling beautiful photos)  Chakra Pennywhistle!

Thanks Annie. It feels like summer when I fool around with poppy dolls. I also like saying all those p's

Oh yes, the alliterative fun of all those Ps is irresistable, but not nearly as irresistable as those dolls! Seriously, they are wonderful. Thank you for introducing them.

Blessings...
