Another Queen Anne doll..............Fanny 26 1/2" tall


Here she is!

Another huge Queen Anne, finely carved and fully jointed. She is an amazing doll in every detail. Click on any photo to see a full screen photo of Fanny.
I have lots of photos of Fanny in the making if you wish to see more.
Her petticoat is all hand quilted and stitched, as is her stomacher and chemise. She has a second petticoat that is all bordered with hand stitched candlewicking.
Her waist hook has a small pair of scissors, a hanging perfume and a key...................for something secret I am sure. Her pocket hangs at her waist. All of her clothing is removable should someone want to undress her or make her a wardrobe. She is such a wonderful size to sew for.
Her face will make you melt! I am so pleased with her and now she is ready for a home. If you are interested in more photos or information on Fanny just email me:

Hannah is huge! 27" tall and truly wonderful!


Meet Hannah.
This is the largest English Queen Anne that I have carved so far. She is 27" tall and was so fun to dress.
She is fully jointed and has hinged elbows.....a real challenge!
Hannah has down turned antique black glass eyes and double dotted eyebrows.
She is truly as lady, from her lace cap to her silk slippers and totally dressed in antique fabrics and laces.
She is delightful.

Family photo......

Yesterday I had the presence of mind to take a photo of a group of my finished dolls so you could see the sizes and variation in them. I had this group ready for a wonderful visit with Lynn Murray (renowned doll collector and UFDC past president, and mostly a wonderful friend) and her friend Samy Odin of the fabulous doll museum in Paris France, along with Lynn's sister Anne and their other wonderful friend Janet. We had a lovely afternoon and then an great dinner and even better conversation! It was most encouraging to me to have this knowledgeable doll group come for a visit and meet my ladies.
I have put some photos of the group on here tonight for you to see. Now that the visit is over, these are the dolls that are now available for sale (except the small one on the far right, she left today for Alaska!)
Thank you again to Lynn, Samy, Anne and Janet.

Margaret Higgs..........19" tall


I am pleased to show you Margaret Higgs. She is a large Queen Anne style doll carved from basswood and measuring just over 19" tall. She is fully jointed and has painted eyes in the style of the early 1680 Higgs dolls.
Her clothes are all made of early antique fabrics and trims and her bodice is made of silk and metallic trim that I have hand stitched together and lined.
Her clothes are removable, just in case she gets a wardrobe at a later date.
Margaret also is wearing a chatelaine that I made for her as well.
Her slippers are silk and her wonderful cap is from a piece of early Ayrshire from England.
If you would like more info or photos of Margaret Higgs just email me and I will be happy to send you more.
Thanks for looking!

22" Libby is finally finished....(SOLD)


This lady is huge! She is 22" tall and as you see in the photos, much larger than Anna and Belle, her two similar sisters.
She is hand carved from basswood and fully jointed. She would need a good doll stand or chair to sit in.
Her lovely Queen Anne face is very detailed and has antique black pupiless eyes. Her eyelids and eyebrows are fine and dotted just as the early Queen Annes were.
Her 2 pc. dress in all handmade by me from some early French cotton and her skirt has the 2 slits to reach into her matching pockets.......Her petticoat is made from a piece of an early petticoat that I have cut down for her. She has silk slippers that match her outfit, of course. She has a sizable bum-roll that ties in the front under her dress. Libby's dress is just above ankle length in the front and tappers down to floor length in the back.
She is so much lovelier in person than in the photos. I do have lots of photos of her that I took as I was making her, so if you would like to see more, just email me:
or call 705 489-1046
Libby is finished and looking for a home.
Thanks for looking!
