Why are babies so creepy?

They are supposedly so cute and cuddly, so why do faux babies (otherwise known as dolls) creep us out so much?  I blame the movie industry for jading us.  Then again, I wasn’t ever a fan of the dolls even as a young girl.  They seemed very limited in the amount of creative play one could get out of them.  Now give me some wooden blocks, some Leggos, and a chunck of PlayDoh and it’s game on!

Nevertheless, to quell the growing interest in them as planters and objects of interest around the house, I have created a second baby doll concrete head for you to consider.  We’ll have a few at our next show (Lakewood White Rock Local, April 6) but you can order them here https://www.etsy.com/listing/128116354/concrete-hypertufa-baby-head-planter-tea and prepay and I can either deliver or mail them to you. (there is a charge to mail)  The ones you buy online won’t have any plants, but you can request a metal floral frog or a tealight candle at no extra charge.  Tillandsia will soon be on offer (air plants) but these can also be potted up with small succulents or cactus, like this guy.  Love the side view; looks like he’s rocking a faux-hawk.  What a cool kid.  pudge baby and silver bowl

Appreciation photos are so very… appreciated!

Thanks so much to Molly Terry, who recently bought one of my creepy concrete cast baby heads at Thursday’s Design District Show.  She told me of her plan to install a tilandsia (air plant) into the floral frog that I had glued inside the head, and not only did she do a splendid job of styling her CBH, but she took the project up a notch by sending me this amazing photo.  Bravo, Molly!  In fact, I think this is spawning an idea for me.  Anyone who buys anything from me at a craft fair will recieve a discount coupon via email if they go home and snap a neat photo of the piece in its new location – whether it be home, office, or even a friend’s home.  Just email the photo to trulyunruhly@yahoo.com, and then watch the blog and your email!  Note:   the pics don’t have to be *this* nice, folks… I failed to mention Molly is a professional stylist!
