Welcome to my rendition of "Maria" (#4 in the Ladies Series). She reminds me of those alteration ladies that used to be (or perhaps still are in) clothing stores. I remember when I was a young girl how my mother would have some "Maria" come in to let out a few seams here and there for me. (I always was a bit chunky.) She always walked in with pins in her mouth.....or was that just my imagination? I'm sure she wasn't wearing a button necklace.........I KNOW that is my imagination! Come to think of it, I don't think I have seen an alteration lady in ages.......not since my daughter got married and needed her wedding dress altered. (Not that I'm still not chunky, you understand........I just rarely buy dresses anymore. LOL) Target is more my style now!
Anyway, meet Maria:
Perhaps I should have put the tape measure around her neck, as I remember alteration ladies did, but in her hair was just much more colorful and right now, for me, that is the name of the game!
I really like this one for some reason. Things just fell together perfectly and her eyes, well her eyes are awesome if I do say so myself!
Maria is for sale. If you need specifics, please visit the other ladies in the group. Prices are as in the past. I think she needs a new home, don't you? As with the others, it's 14 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches, and all ready to hang.
