Les Belles Poupees Doll Show - Grapevine


Today's photos are a few shots from the doll show my mother is co-hosting in the Hilton DFW Lakes Exec Conference Center in Grapevine this weekend. The show continues Sunday at 10am. The hotel is located right by Grapevine Mills mall and Bass Pro Shops. The photos were taken before the show opened this morning while everyone was still setting up. The first one shows the 'winner's table' with the dolls and entries that were awarded top ribbons in the respective categories they were submitted for - the 'best of the best!'



The next few photos show some of the various booths and items from local artisans - a lot of the works shown are one-of-a-kind dolls and pieces, that are scuplted, painted, fired, and sewn by area artists. Their work and the care and detail they put into these pieces is truly amazing and make them wonderful keepsakes and gifts... personally, I really liked the Santa Clauses - and the one with the globe most of all!

I am not really a fan of dolls, I find them a bit creepy actually. But I certainly can appreciate the time and effort that went into sculpting and painting their faces, sewing their clothing and generally all those little touches that makes each of these dolls unique.
