Pick A Pint Of Pickled People
Say that 10 times fast! Okay, you are probably thinking to yourself that the polka dots have finally wedged themselves deep into her brain and has caused her to do some really strange things. She made what??? Pickled People???
I cannot make these doll heads without making a jar of Pickled People at the same time. Growing up, my parents enjoyed a condiment called Pickled Onions with their dinner meal. I think it's a Portuguese thing. Maybe a Portuguese/Hawaii thing. I don't know. Anyway, you couldn't open the refrigerator without seeing a bottle tucked in there somewhere. These doll heads remind me of little onions and bring back memories of the pickled onions of my childhood.
Every canning jar needs a pretty polka-dotted topper.
This is where those doll heads really belong. I call this doll Anela Pupule. Anela [aa NEH la] in Hawaiian means angel. Pupule [poo poo' leh] means crazy, as in off the deep end kind of crazy. If I may say so, this doll looks even more unbalanced dressed in polka dots and glitter than in her usual Hawaiian frock!

Mahalo Nui Loa(thank you very much)for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
P.S. I just received an email from Joyce who has a blog called Crafter Thoughts. She also happens to be the winner of my recent giveaway. Please check out her blog to see her winnings, but most importantly, to check out her lovely, newly organized, and painted craft room. While you're there, don't forget to take a look at the pretty angels that she makes from Christmas ornaments. Too cute and very creative! She's a really sweet gal so don't walk, run on over and say hi!
