This is my daughter Nikki with her children A'Keyla(14) and Jonathan(10...he just had a b'day 9/27). They visited me today with Nikki's new fiance(Jerome) on their way to take Jon back to Miami (he lives with his dad) and was here for his B'day weekend.  Aren't they beautiful? God bless them with a safe journey there and back. Nana loves you guys!

Wendy

Here is a ton of pics of Wendy the Good Witch! She is made from my own paper clay recipe and measures 14 inches tall with her Spidey Hat.  She is jointed at the shoulders and hips and her legs can be posed. Tea dyed, vintage, and new fabrics were used for her taggedy (not raggedy) dress. Her teeny shoes have leather soles with tan heels. I think she is rather sweet, don't you? 


Wendy was requested by a gallery for exhibit for sale with 30% of the proceeds donated for a center that cares for sexually abused victims and their children,  but she can also be paid for through this blog for $299.00 & S/H. She comes as displayed only with her hat and broom.  She is signed on upper her back protected with several coats of  sealant.  A wooden stand and display case may be requested for an additional cost and will be done within 3 days after purchase. As with any valuable artwork store and display away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture.  Wendy the Good Witch is a one of a kind  Cheeky Rose Boutique Original.
