...and more Laury...





These images are from Better Homes and Gardens Stitchery and Crafts (1966). The group of dolls are not specifically credited to Jean Ray Laury, but I'm pretty sure they're hers.

Their wonky joyfulness makes me very happy.

I LOVE the floral wall hanging! Very simple but joyous and fun.

Add my hurrahs for the headboard....but what is t about 60's/70's children's toys that freak me out slightly? It must just be the photography.....

If you want to see some creepy dolls, check out www.fabricawakuwaku.ca I'm a big fan of unusual dolls and cannot resist buying the strangest and most pathetically ugly ones I find at art/craft shows. I discovered these doll artists at a show in Ottawa last year and had to One Up the dollmaker in the crazy category in order to convince her to sell me two of the little girls that were calling my name!
