Sweet Charity..a ragdoll * SOLD *

Charity has sold..she will be moving to Georgia..thanks Patty!!

Good evening all! I bet everyone is ready for Halloween!!! Well I have another little ragdoll that will be listed November 1st on The Primitive Gathering site..just click on the tab to the right of this page to visit.

This is Sweet Charity. She measures 10 inches tall and as with the original from 1892 she is a one piece doll, her legs and arms are not seperately attached. I did sew her joints at the hips and shoulders so she can sit or stand proped up. She is weighted and her face is inked in a warm chestnut brown ink, which give her a soft "faded" appearance which I dearly love.

Her dress is a muted barn red, much darker in person. Her bloomers are made from vintage fabric and her slip is from a vintage doll slip. I painted her little shoes and flowers at the top of each shoe then distressed them for a well worn, loved little doll.

Be sure to stop by and visit all the offerings by this group of talented artists!

Have a safe and very spooky Halloween!!
