I just got done listing Emma on ebay today. Emma is a part of my mourning doll series and the seasons of life. I started making mourning doll seven years ago after the death of my father and sister-in -law. both died in less than amonth from each other from tragic car accidents.Some look at them as sad dolls,but to me they represent a season to life we all share. It is the one true bond that we as human can relate to. We can feel each others pain and sorrow and loss. I am blessed with the love and wisdom that my father gave and many happy memories.So for some they may be sad dolls but for me they are simply beautifuland kindred spirits.
