Treasure Hunting at the Tracks

I just had to share this art doll made by Taylor, my 9 year old. Oh Em Geee!!!! (thats how she talks LOL)
We love to go for "treasure hunts" and we go down by the railroad tracks quite a bit. So when we had some unseasonably warm weather about 10 days ago we took my neice and nephew for their very first treasure hunt. We will need to go on a few more before they love them as much as Taylor and I do. But they (all of us) found some great stuff.
Yesterday was the first day of Spring Break and Taylor decided to pull out her bag of treasures and make something. She found an empty nail polish bottle in her room and put this doll together. Everything except the bottle is what she found at the tracks. The only thing I did for her was to color the bottle with Alcohol Inks (I am not willing to give her free reign with my precious inks yet) I think she did such a fabulous job!!
Those are some pretty awesome knee caps. hehehe

I don't know why she gave him a sad mouth, but he looks pretty cool. He even has a cool little hat.
