Perfect Doll Gift From Above

Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.  NLT James 1:17

Lorna Paris and I communicated by phone and text message during the time she worked on the 2011 club dolls for my doll group.   After completing the last two dolls, during one of our conversations she asked if I owned one of her doll pins.   I own two and described them to her.  One is the face of a Native American girl sculpted from polymer clay.  The other is a rock head pin.  After determining that I did not own one of her mini all-leather doll pins, Lorna said she wanted to make one for me.  I became beyond excited because I love her one-of-a-kind dolls!

Referred to as Little Healing Dolls, the mini all-leather pins are dressed in a variety of clothing styles.  Each one has its own personality created by Lorna's artistic hands.  The hairstyles are unique; some have leather hair!  Leather is often used as the stuffing.  They are all completely handmade including the jewelry.

Little Healing Doll pin from the Tribal Batch by Lorna Paris

My beautiful, intricately detailed, 4-inch Little Healing Doll pin arrived this past Tuesday (shown above).  Her wig is made from baby lambskin, handmade by Lorna.  Her tribal outfit and headband are made from calf skin.   Lorna also made the jewelry, which includes gold tone earrings, bracelet, anklet, and multicolored beaded necklace.  My wearable work of art arrived with a note from Lorna that reads:

Hi Debbie!

Hope my little Tribal doll finds you in a good way.  The spirit of God told me to make this for you. Hope you like her. Wear her in good health.

Yours Truly,

Lorna Paris

I called Lorna to express my deepest thanks and gratitude for her thoughtfulness.  I feel honored and very blessed, and wanted to share my good and perfect gift with the readers of this blog.

    1. Thanks, Roxanne.
