I especially love the nail polish on her little toes (I found it like that - promise!).
Heres a close up of that garter belt!

Ok, now for something on the silly (but fun) side. Here is a vase I created out of an really old doll leg. I attached it to a heat register grate for the texture and then found some interesting metal banding and thought it made the perfect garter belt!
