The old Rose

This is Rose.
Actually 'the old Rose.'
Rose is much older now, and she thinks quite often about her younger years.
When she thinks back to those times, she calls herself 'the old Rose.'
She remembers the simpler times when she was surrounded by her family and her friends.
Rose is all alone now.
She spends more and more time thinking about 'the old Rose' and
all that love.
It's all she has now
and it makes her smile.

Rose is a handmade mixed media doll. She is muslin-based, embellished with acrylic paints, pencils, and antique book text. Oh, and a single silk flower. You can prop her in a special spot, or she has a small hook on the back for hanging.
I loved making her.
