15 1/2" Elena is now finished..................SOLD

I have been working for a few days on Elena's clothing.  She is Eugenia's younger sister but about the same height.
She is now finished and SOLD.  Elena is fully jointed and sits or stands well.  Her gown is silk and is not nearly as dark as the photos towards the bottom of this post.  She has such a sweet face.  She looks much younger than her sister.  She has silk leading strings on the back of her gown.  Her petticoat is very fine and full and she has a bum roll that makes her gown stand out nice and full.  Her gown is a bit longer in the back and slightly trails behind her.
I have just added a few photos of her lovely face.  Her patina looks so old and wonderful I just had to share. 
If you have any interest or questions just email me:

You must take a look at Eugenia and Elena in their new home:
SOLD promised, lots of photos of Elena finished:

15" Eugenia, Hand Carved Fully Jointed Wooden Queen Anne Doll.................SOLD

Here are some quick photos of Eugenia.  She is 15" tall, fully jointed and has antique glass eyes.
She is dressed in Antique silk and early tarnished metallic trims.  The shades in her gown are very muted and soft and not as yellowish as these photos look.  The silk is more light beige, cream and a faded soft green.  She has quite an old look and some attitude!  Eugenia's patina is much nicer in person.

Meet Elspeth, 17 1/2" fully jointed English Wooden Doll.............SOLD

I am so pleased to show you Elspeth.  I have posted lots of photos for you to see.  The very early silk that her gown is made of is not as bright as it seems in these photos.  I think my flash and the sun in here this morning have caused this. 
Elspeth is fully jointed and has upper and lower wooden arms with linen joints so she really poses well.  She is an amazing doll in person and so much nicer than these photos.  Notice her leading strings on the back of her gown.  She is a lovely young lady and looking for a new home.  Elspeth is SOLD.

The true colours of her gown and shoes are Mustard gold, cranberry and a very faded teal blue.


See her leading strings on the back of her gown............I just found this interesting tidbit that I will share:  1740's The leading strings on the back of the dress indicate that the doll is a teenaged girl. It became common for unmarried teenaged girls to have leading strings on the back of their gowns to show that they were still under parental control.


If you would like more info or photos just let me know.
Elspeth is SOLD

Lord and Lady Higgs..........Hand Carved Fully Jointed Dolls.........SOLD

I could not wait for you to see what I have been up to here.
Meet Lord and Lady Higgs, Harry (SOLD) and Eliza (AVAILABLE).  I am so pleased with these two swivel head William Higgs style wooden dolls.  Harry is 14" and Eliza is 13 1/2".  They are available and can be purchased together or separately.  (shhhhhhh.....don't tell them this, they love each other!)
I am putting a bunch of photos of them on here for you to view tonight and then tomorrow I will try to get some better photos.  The sun was just pouring in here today and it was really hard to take photos.  I guess we should not be complaining about the sun!
If you have any questions just email me:

19 1/2" Izannah Walker doll with ringlets............................SOLD

I will be adding more photos as soon as I can but I just wanted to share some photos of my latest 19 1/2" Izannah Walker doll that is finished and SOLD.
She is a bare foot Izannah with handmade socks and shoes.  She also has amazing antique undergarments that consist of bloomers, petticoat and a darling chemise, all made from hand stitched very early pieces from the England.
Her dress is amazing and again made from early calico from about 1850-1860.  It is faded brown and faded reddish pink.  I also made her a calico bonnet that co-ordinates with her dress.  I do not care for bonnets on Izannah dolls but they are wonderful to display with them.
Enjoy these photos for now and as soon as the sun goes down I will take some more.  If you have any questions or would like more photos before I can get them on here just email me:
Thanks for dropping by!


This Izannah has really wonderful ringlets!!
7 of them, 5 across the back and one on each side of her head in front of her ears.

Ignore the shine on her head, that is my flash.  She has a wonderful warm patina.

Here are some "in the making" photos so you can see her wonderful undies!

................and of course her dress.  Love the antique fabric, ignore the messy work area!

I just have to share the lovely email that I just received from the lady who bought this Izannah!
Joy oh joy, there’s great excitement here with the arrival of Izannah ‘three’ whom i have named Charlotte. Kathy, she is so lovely, her dear little face has the sweetest expression... oh my, and her clothing is perfect in every way, simple adorable.. i love the fabric and i love how her sweet chemise can be exposed over her shoulders.  Oh her sweet little socks & shoes, there’s so much loveliness, i just can’t put her down, there’s so much to take in, i don’t want to miss a thing lol. Thank you also for the fabric scraps, which i will include in the quilt i plan to make for her.

I thought you’d like to see a photo of the three Izannah sisters. I’ve placed Charlotte, on the cane chair in my bedroom, with her sisters.. i’m so pleased they fit together so snugly.  Charlotte’s a little taller than her sisters and she looks just right in the middle, don’t you think?  

I love that they all look similar, but with very individual facial expression. They are lovely beyond words, Kathy, and i truly appreciate the love and care you put into creating each of these unique dolls... i love and treasure my Izannah dolls!!

Thank you so much,
