Chair People and the Trees

"Chair People and the Trees"
This is the 3rd batch of these sweet little dolls made from re-purposed chair parts and in this case, tree limbs.  Some are fancy, some are silly, but they are all full of personality and expression.   
Are you ready to meet them?

First up is   “Grace”  Gracie has it all. Part party-girl, part sensible. Never a hot-head and always glam. She wears a meat thermometer hat, a beaded shawl, and a Copenhagen tin lid for her dress. Her arms and legs are tiny keys to finish and embellish this woodsy girl.
“Lola”                                    “Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would meringue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?”
Flowers, bead, keys and scissor legs to die for. Lola remembers.

“Barry”   A barrel themed
wine cork head, box wrenches for arms and legs and a blue marble heart.  Straight from the cellar, Barry’s head is full of ‘barrel talk’.  He works hard all day, and party’s hard all night.

Suzie because she is ‘slinky’ and fun.  A tree limb is embellished with a flattened spoon, keys for arms, bits for legs and a whisk head.  She is lovely.

A music man from head to toe.  A wooden leather softening tool of some sort, some washers, and jiggly springs. A music themed wine cork expresses what’s on his mind.
