Meet Dora Do Good!

Meet Dora Do Good!!

she is my mixed media angel that I am donating to Ava's Auction to be held next week. If you want to bid on her please go to that web site

this is the back of Dora. she is a vintage wooden cigar box mounted on a
glass candle dish. her wings are a trio of christmas decorations found at a garage sale.
When you open the box, dora has a 'bag of wise thoughts'
The Good Book of Gentle Praise and Salve for healing life's hurts.
her head is paper clay and her face is a decoupaged victorian scrap face of a child. I have used yarn bits for her hair.
the cigar box body is covered in antique satin frabric that was taken from a threadbare pillow from the 20's. All lace is antique and german scrap border spells out her name.
