Here is Lady Margaret.........24" English Wooden Queen Anne style doll...(SOLD)

Lady Margaret is now (SOLD)


Lady Margaret is finished and SOLD.   I just LOVE this doll.  Her body is fully jointed.  Her 2pc gown is made of very early fine Linen with the most wonderful Jacobean print that is nicely faded and slightly worn in spots, adding to her charm.  Love her silk slippers......and so does she!
Lady Margaret has a really wonderful face with just the right amount of wear and patina for a doll that looks like she is from 1730 or so. She is totally hand carved from basswood that grows here on our 200 yes, she was born in Canada, although she is a pretty good replica of and Early English Wooden Queen Anne style doll.  Her eyes are antique black glass pupiless. Look at those tiny hand stitched die for!

If you have questions or would like more photos just email me:
I just had to share this lovely email from the lady who bought Lady Margaret!

When I finally ordered Lady Margret from you, I told you I took her picture off your website as my screen saver on my phone for a month. I looked at her every time I picked it up because I thought she was truly the most beautiful doll I had ever seen. I didn't act then because I really only ever buy antique dolls, never reproduction artist dolls, but your dolls are different and I have to say your are not just a "doll" artist you are a true Artisan from the heart taking form and shape to a new over the top level....I received "Lady Margaret" today and I am Blown away! The pictures were fabulous but couldn't do the justice to the life that you gave her! From her incredibly detailed silk cap with the antique lace, her lovely polished cotton day dress to her tiny little silk slippers I couldn't fathom all the tiny hand stitching! I fell even more in love than I thought I already was!! With confidence of all the dolls I have owned she is truly my favorite doll and I am most proud! Thank you so much and your right she will need a sister! Also I saw your doll featured in August 2011 Early American Life magazine, way to go!

24" Georgina is now SOLD....................

I have just finished dressing 24" Georgina.  She is a hand carved reproduction Early English Queen Anne style doll from about 1740 or so.
The fabric that I used for her dress is 18th century cotton with the original hem in it and tiny wonderful mends from a couple of centuries ago!  I wish I had more but this is it. 
Georgina is so much nicer in person that these photos.  She has a wool/silk paisley shawl as well and her tiny silk slippers too.  Her bonnet is reduced off of an 18th century hand stitched bonnet that I had here and was able to reduce it for her.
She is an amazing doll with great bulging antique glass eyes with a downward cast.

She has handmade silk shoes and a really wonderful early cap that I made from an 18th century baby bonnet.

The lovely lady that purchased Leigh just emailed me to let me know she arrived safely.  I just have to share her email with you!!
Hi Kathy,
I had to take some time out of my busy day to let you know that Leigh arrived today….that was fast!!!!! I can hardly think of the words to let you know how much I love this doll. I love everything about her, but let me be specific. I love her size and proportions. I love the colors in her dress, stockings and shoes, and on the patina of her face. I love her hat, her hair, her eyes and the way her face is painted. I already said I loved her shoes and stockings, but I love them so I’ll say it again. I think she may be the favorite doll I have ever owned. At the risk of making you gag from my gushing I will send this along. I am already planning on a “sister” doll for Leigh. Just let’s get this one paid for!! Jacki....Thank you Kathy. She is wonderful!!

8 1/2" petite Wooden Queen cushion..........??...(SOLD)


I could not resist!  When the creative juices were flowing this morning I though I had to finish this petite wooden Queen Anne with antique black glass eyes off into a weighted pin cushion.
She is such a sweet little lady.  Her dress is very early faded cotton and she is completely hand stitched by me.  She is hand carved and would love to sit in your sewing room or amongst some doll friends.
I hope you like her as much as I liked making her.  She is now (SOLD).

Beatrice, 14" tall English Wooden Queen Anne doll.................(SOLD)

This hand carved wooden doll started out to be Anne's Daughter.  Anne is the 24" wooden doll that I put on my site a couple of days ago.  She is available if you scroll down you will see her. 
Here is Beatrice, the 14" wooden that I have just finished.  She looks like a young lady.....maybe 12 or 13 years of age.
She is sold but I wanted to show her to you anyway.
I love this little doll and she is going to a lovely lady that loves her too!
I must share the gracious email that I just received from the thrilled lady that purchased Beatrice.
Here it is:
Hello Kathy,
I know that I have already expressed through our phone conversation
how very pleased I am with Beatrice, but I must elaborate on those
feelings now that I have a free moment.
Growing up with a twin brother, and mostly boys to play with, I was
never really interested in dolls. My recent discovery of your Izannah
Walker style dolls and then the English wooden dolls certainly changed
all of that! I knew that some day, I wanted to own one of your
beautiful creations.
When I saw Beatrice's face...I knew she was the one! Seeing her in
person, holding her and feeling the weight of the wood, the exquisite
details of her face, hair and clothing is pure delight. I still can't
get over the perfectly crafted, tiny shoes and stockings!
She truly is a work of art and a joy to behold. Be assured, Beatrice
will be loved and treasured for many years to come.

Warmest regards,

24" Anne.......the wooden English Queen Anne that I am working on.....(SOLD)

Here are just a few photos of what I have been working on day and night.
She is 24", once she has her legs finished............soon.
Every morsel of her antique silk clothing is hand stitched.  The stitches on the fine ruffles on her neck and sleeves are so tiny you can almost not see them!
Her petticoat is so wonderful that it should not be covered up.  She holds her silk slippers in hopes that she soon has legs and can slip them on!
Anne has such a sweet but shy face and her bonnet is made from 18th century silk lace and embroidered silk from the same period.
Hope you enjoy seeing her so far.....
If you would like more photos or have questions just email me:


She is SOLD but I will post some photos of her all finished.

20" Matilda Walker is finished and (SOLD)...... take a look! Click on any photo twice to see full screen close-ups.

I do not usually name my Izannah Walker reproductions but this one I called Matilda Walker.  She is 20" tall and her 3 pieces of undergarments are antique ones and her claret dress is handmade by me from antique calico cotton from about 1875.
She also has a three tone blue dress, from equally as old calico, that fits her as well so she can be purchased in either dress or both.
She has 5 ringlets across the back of her head and quite worn paint at the front, just as my original antique Izannah has.  The cracks that you see on her face are the same as on my original old Izannah.  I love that worn and loved look!
Matilda is now sold.


If you would like more photos of this doll or more info, just email me:

20" Izannah Walker just finished and.......(SOLD)

I love this doll!!
First look at her undies!
Click on any photo twice to see huge close ups.

She truly looks loved and as if she was just taken out of an attic trunk!  Her underclothes are all made by me from some antique pieces and her dress is also made by me from some really early fine cotton calico.  I do have 4 other dresses here that fit her as well if browns are not your favourite.  She just happens to love too!
Take a look at her and if you would like more photos just let me know.
She is happily sitting here in my studio watching me sew.  This doll will not disappoint!  If you walked in a room and saw her sitting in an old chair you would swear she was old..............
