Hester is simply divine in all her finery. She is off to meet her long love Harry. I made Harry a few years back and now they shall meet tomorrow. Finally!
It will be like when Harry met Hester....LOL.
I am sure the owner will send me photos of the two, which I will share with you.
Here are some photos of Hester.
She is SOLD firstname.lastname@example.org
Hester Higgs is SOLD
These are her darling silk shoes with metal embroidery...
Gemma is a hand carved doll that was a custom order but I thought I must share even though she is SOLD.
Black dolls are so hard to photograph without getting a shine to the face. I will share anyway.
I hope you enjoyed seeing Gemma!
Look at this wonderful photo I just received!
Just had to share:
Hi Kathy, I thought I would give you an update on the ladies…while Annie is
fond of Arden, she may be a bit “much” for her sometimes. Arden is chatty, full
of energy and has a tiny mischievous streak. I do think she stretches Annie to
the limit on occasion. On the other hand, Gemma adores Arden and I think they
are going to get along very well. Arden has already given Gemma her prized
purse as a welcome gift. With the two of them spending so much time getting
acquainted, maybe Annie can get some of the “quiet time” she longs
I just had to share even though he is SOLD.
He is so handsome and off to meet his bride to be!
This was a special order that I have been working on for quite some time but have permission to share photos................ email@example.com
Occasionally I offer an Undressed Hand Carved English Wooden Doll for Sale as I get requests from people who wish to dress a Queen Anne or William Higgs type doll themselves.
I have a couple AVAILABLE.
I have been doing a lot of carving lately and got a bit ahead of my self with dolls ready for clothing.
If you have any interest in an Undressed doll as you wish to sew for one yourself please inquire and I can send photos. firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the type of head I am carving right now in two sizes.
Meet Lillian in all her silk finery!
She is 10" tall and has wonderful patina and bulgy antique glass eyes. Such a sweet face. She looks like a young girl to me. The antique silk she is wearing is so perfect for her. All in all I could not be happier with this little doll. She is so much nicer in person than the photos. She has a little carved bust line too. Her tiny stockings are amazing hand knitted and her darling little shoes are embroidered silk to compliment her gown.
If you have questions or would like some more quick photos just email me: email@example.com 10" Lillian is SOLD.
I just posted new photos of Lillian.
The colouring in the above photo is most accurate.
This is the final of the 3 William Higgs wooden pincushion dolls that I have made. She is so darling!
Her fabric is very fine early wool that is embroidered and the tiny strips are all sewn together......amazing!
She is SOLD.
If you have questions or would like more photos just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do take a look at Constance. She is dressed from head to toe in early silk that is so wonderful on her.
She has a fabulous stomacher and shoes to match. Constance is SOLD but I wanted to share her with you. email@example.com
Hi Kathy! I was out for a bit, and
came home and she was here! I couldn't open the box fast enough! Constance is
just incredible!!! I love her! Thank you! I never feel like I am able to
fully describe how beautiful your dolls are, and how much I love them.
Constance is just so beautiful- the fabric of her dress is so amazing, just so
soft and silky and elegant, and I love the little splashes of bright green
throughout the dress. The shoes and bodice are spectacular and compliment the
dress so well. And even her stockings are so very beautiful! She is a very
lucky doll indeed, to be so very beautifully dressed from head to toe! She has
such a pretty face, and I love the bows on the sides of her lace bonnet. She is
just wonderful, and I love her very much! Thank you for thinking of me, and
sending me all of the wonderful pictures of her progress. I've always thought that it would be so much fun to watch
you make your dolls, so receiving all of the pictures was a special treat
indeed. And I love her name very much! It fits her perfectly. She really is
so wonderful, just perfect in every way. A museum quality work of art! I'm so
thankful to be able to give her a good home.
