As Promised...........................

I promised last week that I would reveal the person that is taking over my Izannah Walker doll molds.  It is Lynda Hampton of Kangaroo Island, Australia.  Her site is
Do take a look!  She has now finished her first small Izannah Walker doll since receiving the molds and supplies from me. 
Lynda is very excited with this new venture and I wish her all the luck in the world as I know how exciting it was for me to paint that first head!!  I know she is working on more Izannah Walker dolls so do check her site often.

All my best,

Read below...........

To all of you who have been on this Izannah Walker journey with me and have followed my progress and purchased my dolls, I humbly thank you. 

I made the decision a while ago to let go of the “Izannah Walker Doll” part of my doll making business.  My heart truly is in making English Wooden Queen Anne style dolls so that will be my main focus now.  For several years now I have made Izannah Walker dolls and loved every moment of the sewing, painting and making those 1850’s little dresses! 

I think I have a achieved what I set out to do, and that was to be able to make Izannah Walker dolls that looked like Izannah’s dolls.  I went to the very expensive task of making molds off of 3 of the 6 antique Izannah Walker original dolls that I sought out, purchased and studied.  Just to be able to hold the originals and study how they were made and feel the history in my hands gave me all the inspiration I needed to make Izannah Walker dolls.  The journey has been wonderful and fulfilling and a great creative challenge for me.  For this, I thank Izannah Walker for showing the world her amazing talent in the field of early doll making through her portrait dolls. 

I will be disclosing in a week or so the person that is taking over my molds, patterns, and tips.  She is as equally excited to be making these dolls with my original molds as I was when I made my First Izannah Walker doll.  I will be happy to share this info and a link to her site just the moment she lets me know I can share the secret!!

She is SOLD

9 1/2" Hand Carved Wooden Black sweet! .........................SOLD

Here she is!  It is so hard to take photos of black doll without getting a shine on her face.  She has such a sweet little face.  Her head is only about the size of a large grape.  Her fabrics are all antique and quite faded but in the photos they look bright.....they are not.
She is so much nicer in person.  I had started her quite a while ago but thought I best get clothes on her this past weekend so she can find a home.
See her sweet little carved fingers!  She is jointed at the hips but has little straight legs.  I have her standing on a tiny doll stand which can go with her as well if you need one.

If you would like more photos or have questions just email me:



Her apron will come off should you like her just dressed very simple!
