A Cage for the Santos!

Rough, eh?
Pay particular attention to the cracked rope trim, nail heads,
and the worn, splintered grain on the tobacco stakes...
(it's "the look" I'm going for!)
This is the first time I've designed a cage using an oval base.
For this Santos, I am envisioning a very old, vintage doll with
jointed wooden arms, well-worn painted surfaces, and lots of character.
I'm not sure the galvanized wire mesh "apron" behind the drop finial will stay... or be moved.


  1. Oh boy, can't wait to see this one! But come to think of it I can't wait to see any of your lovely creations!

  2. You are such a tease.. An angel this time.. More up dates soon please.. Love your Santos dolls.

    Wishing a Happy New year to you both. ~ Julie

  3. Looking forward to watching this one develop!
