Agnes relaxing showing off her rugs!

Here's a picture of Agnes reclined on her rug.  The rug is from my trip to California earlier this year.  It is a hand knotted wool rug with a very very short pile.  It is not a "prayer rug".  I have one of those, they tend to be square.  This is rectangular.  It is a sample of the larger "human" counterpart.  When I saw it for sale, I had to have it.  I'm thinking it will end up in a bedroom.  Or perhaps a dining room.  Depending on the type of furniture.

I have some stuff in mind.  Have to start collecting furniture.  ;)

Given 1/6 scale, this is probably an 8' x 10' rug.

Here's another rug (also wool) -- probably a prayer rug.
This pile is a little higher.  I bought this at an "antique" store in Miami.  I use quotes because I don't think the things in there are actually antiques.  One man's junk....

I was playing around.  Agnes is on all fours inspecting the carpet!

Given a 1/6 scale, this is probably about a 8' x 8' carpet.  Small, but still useful.

This is my "feel good Friday" kind of post.  So happy to have Agnes.  My husband asked me why I blog.  I said "because I like it!".  I really enjoy having Agnes and I'm very satisfied with her -- something I haven't found with other dolls.

Although you can't tell from this post, I've been really busy (I had a burst of energy this week) and I'll have lots of stuff to show for it!  Those Ad hocs, when I get bogged down, I just let my mind wander and viola -- something new!


  1. i love reading your blog and seeing what you and Agnes are up to, really fun! :)

  2. Thanks Annina! I appreciate your stopping by. I love posting to this blog. I've been busy writing a back story for Agnes. I've never written (or even really had a back story) for a doll but Agnes is different ;)

  3. oh that's interesting, Agnes seems really very inspiring!
    there is something special with these porcelain dolls! i'm looking forward to the day when i can adopt a doll from Teri :)
