Sweet Luisa...10 1/2 inch doll

ON EBAY NOW!


This is Luisa.  She is an antique inspired Izannah Walker style doll  She is only 10 1/2 inches tall.  She is just the sweetest little thing!  Luisa is a cloth doll which I have hand molded paper clay over her head and shoulders.  She has separately attached thumbs as the vintage Izannah Walker dolls do.  I have weighted her so she sits nicely.  All her clothing has been created using vintage linens.  I have used quality artists paints on her head, arms and legs.  Luisa has been heavily crackled with very fine crackling then stained and sealed to give her a very vintage look.

You can stop by and see her on EBAY by just clicking the ebay link on the top right of this page.

Thanks for stopping!

Meet Gemma...



Meet Gemma.  She is an antique inspired Izannah Walker style doll and measures 16 inches.
Gemma is dressed in a beautiful reproduction civil war print dress in rust and green.  Her bloomers are created from vintage fabrics and her slip is an actual vintage doll slip with a vintage glass she button closure.

Her head is not separately attached like the original Izannah's.  Her head is formed directly onto the doll using paper clay,  I used artist quality acrylic paints on her sweet face, head, legs and arms.  She has been heavily aged with crackle and stain for a lovely aged look.  She has been sealed with a matte finish sealer.  All Gemma's clothes are removable.

Gemma will come to you signed, dated and numbered on her body along with swing tags.

All my dolls are for the adult collector and not intended for children's play

My poor Dad....

Just got home from a month away. My dad had a bad fall and fractured his neck, broke his collar bone, two ribs and his hand. My mom is not well so we went down to help out. It is a very difficult thing when your parents live so far away and your time with them is limited. My hubby made a platform and attached it to the bottom of his recliner so he can get out of it by himself. We did a few other things around the house to make life easier for them both. On top of that my Mother-in-law is not well either. She has stage three kidney and liver failure and her heart is not good. She is home now but we don't think it will be long and she will have to go to a nursing home for 24hr care. Needless to say this past couple months have been extremely stressful for my husband and me. But we are home now and I have all my Christmas decorating finished and I am finishing up a little girl, a Queen Anne inspired doll. Well...off to pick out fabrics for her little dress! Always and forever, Kimberly
