Head of the Class


Chris is not the only one obsessed with vintage doll heads. They seem to be coming all the rage. In the latest issue of Country Living magazine, Theresa Smith of Glendale, KY uses several to add a touch of humor to her ironstone collection (see photo above). Chris has been collecting, designing and adding vintage, cracked and faded doll heads to his own displays for over three years. A book on his collection and his use of them, titled "Crack Heads" will be available at the end of June at urbanprairie.net.

Hi Chris, Can you believe that Theresa's house!! It's very believable that she would have doll heads mixed in with her ironstone, it's the unexpected and I LOVE it! By the way, great pics on Flickr of you ~ can you believe this blog world? What a great tool and connection with others, right? take care, Dawn

Theresa has such a creative eye, as do you!! I'm always so blown away with her ideas. Have you seen her space at Marburger?
