Haiku Carmelita

Li’l Carmelita
Hand sewn “Skeletina” doll
Felted muertos nymph

While at the Santa Fe flea market last August, my friend Leia bought a little felt calavera doll from a gal calling herself Skeletina.

Leia named her little guy Xavier, and he became our trip mascot…but he was always lonely for a playmate.  So when my husband and I were in New Mexico earlier this month, we went back to the flea market, and it was there that we found our little Carmelita.

I’m thinking Xavier will approve…
