I found this on Ebay. It is a Kachina made by my friend Maggie. It is her interpretation of a Kachina so it doesn't represent any traditional doll. I love it because it was made by her and I was able to add it to my collection.

I just thought that today would be a good day to add a picture of my husband to my Cozy House. He passed away three years ago today from Primary Pulmonary Hypertension, aka Idiopathatic Pulmonary Hypertension. He was a wonderful man, supportive of me, supportive of my beading. He was a beader too! He was an artist, former law officer, man of medicine, and my husband and friend. He is also the reason that I have all my furry friends. He picked out Stinks from the pound, one day away from being euthanized because of overcrowding. He found monk, straving and almost dead, a tiny baby, and brought her home to stay. He let Squeekie in, in the middle of a tornado warning and she has been here since. He also picked out Jake for me, three months before he passed away. These were all the best gifts ever, as they are my family and have helped me over the tough times. We all miss you Greg.
