The Cup Ran Away With the Spoons

The Cup Ran Away with the Spoons: wild-haired and dirty-faced from her successful spoon rescue, this lady is on the run to save the spoons. She is a one-of-a-kind doll assemblage. The hand sculpted face and arms are of polymer clay. Her title is a play on the nursery rhyme, "Hey diddle-diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon, the little dog laughed to see such a sight, and the dish ran away with the spoon."

The remainder of the doll is made from found object vintage hardware, an old tin measuring cup, miniature gears and a jewelry piece with antique-finished charms. An old door knob backplate forms the base. The beanie cap, face and neck structure, as well as the arms, are secured with wing nuts and bolts.


  1. The little dog laughed...and so did I! She is so cute. Love the addition of the wing nuts and bolts.

  2. Thanks, Jenclair. I mentioned the nursery rhyme because I wasn't sure the young bloggers would get the connection.
