Leigh is finished....................(SOLD)

Leigh is hand carved and fully jointed.  She is actually the sister to Beatrice, I just did not get them finished in time to stand with the huge Anne doll.
Leigh is 14" tall and dressed in old small scale Jacobean print Cotton/Linen.  Her petticoat is very plain and simple......just like her.
She has handmade silk shoes and a really wonderful early cap that I made from an 18th century baby bonnet.
She is SOLD.
If you would like more photos or have questions just let me know.  You can email me at:  toysintheattic@sympatico.ca
Thanks for looking!!

SOLD
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!!
