You must meet Arden, 10 1/2" Hand carved Wooden Queen Anne Doll.......................SOLD

I hope you enjoy seeing Arden.  She is so full of detail and truly stunning all dressed in silk and amazing tiny hand stitched ruffles and lace.  Her little tie on silk hip pads make her wide paneled silk skirt hang perfectly over her very full antique petticoat again with the tiniest of hand stitching.  Arden's tiny silk shoes are to die for!  The patina on this doll is amazing and truly she is so much more wonderful in person.
Arden is SOLD

Meet 17 1/2" Matilda, Hand Carved Queen Anne Doll............Stunning!..................SOLD

I am thrilled to show you Matilda.  She really is stunning!  I hope the photos do her justice.  Her Silk gown is completely hand stitched and the very early lace that I used for her is all hand made and from the UK........so amazing with the original patina.  Her Shoes are also 1700's silk as are her hand knit stockings that are so fine them must have been knit on pins!  Matilda's face is so beautiful and serene with just the perfect aged look to her. 
She is fully jointed.  Her beautiful hands are wearing fingerless kid leather mittens typical of this time period.  Almost forgot to mention her apron..........breathtaking!
She is all finished now and looking for a good home.

I'm Back!! And thank you all for your patience......................

I have been slowly getting back into doll making in the last couple of weeks.  I have so missed my long days of carving and painting and sewing and presenting you with dolls to view.  Doll making is such a huge part of who I am but was forced to take a break since the 20th of March 2016 to be able to care for my son after his accident.  Mid June we moved to our new/old school house that I purchased.  That was chaotic for Nick, Holly and I as it was a big move and a lot to do and poor Nick on crutches and IV into late July.  He is on the mend and limping around but thankfully he did not loose his leg. 
Enough about that..............
I have had many emails asking if I was still going to be making dolls and the answer is YES!
Now that my studio is unpacked and somewhat organized I have been carving, painting and sewing! 
Feel free to email me anytime to see what I am working on as sometimes the dolls are sold before I can get them on my site.  babesfromthewoods@gmail.com
I am trilled to show you this 11" Higgs type doll that I just finished!

Thank you all for your patience.
I have had so many lovely emails of concern for both my and Nick and Holly and I thank you all for your kind words.
Keep watching!
Thank you,
Kathy

Just had to share:

Hi Kathy,      Oh wow, my beautiful Lady Higgs just arrived and I'm so thrilled with her!   I'm so excited about this beautiful doll!   She is so lovely, just perfect in every way.  The fabric of her gown is just stunning - just love the colors in it.  And her beautiful shoes are the perfect match.  She is exquisitely dressed from head to toe!   Her face is beautiful, such a sweet expression.  Once again, your craftsmanship and artistry are astounding.  All of the tiny little stitches are amazing, and I love how her gown ties up in the back.  I just completely love her!  Thank you sooo much!  It's so nice to see your beautiful dolls again, and I know you are happy to be creating them once again. It's obvious that each one is truly a labor of love.  Thank you for making these amazing dolls - they bring such happiness!
