Today is our 30th anniversary! To celebrate, Rob and I are going on a little trip to Long Island, NY. Ok, I know what some of you are thinking? Isn’t Long Island full of Levittown style track houses? Well, we’re going to the northern end, which we’re reaching by ferry from New London, CT. I’ll come back with pictures to show what we find. Anyway, I thought this would be a good opportunity to show the dolls I made for our wedding.
At the wedding, the dolls were hanging in a basket with helium balloons floating above and cheese cakes below.
The dolls and basket have been gathering a coat of dust over the years, as we have also become gray.
They were made with stuffed nylon stockings, which was all the rage back then.
I made my own wedding dress and Rob’s shirt and vest, so the dolls had matching outfits. Happy summer solstice!
