I first saw these beautiful dolls way way back at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts book store, and immediately fell in love. So I was so delighted to see them again at a street fair a couple weeks ago when I was on vacation. However, I am upset for several reasons, first my camera batteries were dead, so I wasn't able to take any pictures.... Secondly I had no money on me, so I wasn't able to purchase one of these beauties for Miss E, secretly for me, but that goes with anything I buy Miss E...that's for some other post! And thirdly, I didn't get a chance to chat with the talented creator and mastermind behind Cara Carmina, my kids were having one of those days! Oh well thank god for the Internet, I was able to check Cara Carmina's blog here and her flicker photos here and I found these to share with you.... Look at all the details, the colors and fabric choices. You have got to love the Frida dolls, I know I do! I think I would get one those for Miss E since she also has a unibrow...
Good thing she has an Etsy store, so you and I can get our hands on one of her creations: dolls, jewelry, prints, notebooks... and look at how cute the packaging is! L'amour...
And finally, I am sure I will get to meet Norma some day soon, we do live in the same city after all, this time I'll make sure I don't just grab a business card and then leave it lying around on my desk for weeks, this time I'll try to say something proper like "pleased to meet you Cara Carmina"... Wouldn't you be?
