GRANDMOTHER'S DOLL (THE ATTIC DOLL) OFFERED FINISHED OR AS A KIT - Presented again by popular request

HERE IS HER OLD BLURB: Announcing a 9" papier mache doll inspired by "A is for Annabelle" by Tasha Tudor. She came about originally for a doll for a Tasha Tudor workshop. Most of my customers are very familiar with the wonderful works of Tasha Tudor and indeed I have been inspired by her images since I first saw them in 1980. My Annabelle version will be recognized from the cover of the alphabet book shown below. She will have a blonde mohair wig with a handcrocheted snood (hard to see in the picture), wearing a bonnet with lace ruffle trim, a pink gingham dress in the late 1800's style with full petticoat and pantalets and pink leather slippers.

THE NEW TINY DOLL FOR THIS YEAR (2021-22) ~ NO. TWENTY - THE 1830'S DOLL

The tiny doll for this year, Number 20, again in the 3.5" size, is styled after the costumes of the times which featured leg-of-mutton sleeves and very wide and full brimmed bonnets. Originally, I planned on a subdued palette, but always hampered by available fabrics with a drape good enough for such tiny dolls, I turned down one uninspiring color set after another. Then I happened to notice that the purples, eggplants and greens of the ornamental kales planted in the urns outside my workroom door were just what I was looking for and more importantly was able to obtain the right colors in the right fabrics. The just-right green is used with silk ribbon around her bonnet and her waistband (can't be seen in this photo). Tiny silk ribbon rosettes on her gown and bonnet add the color pop.

#20 The 1830'S Doll - $225 Add to Cart

Stands Recommended - If a stand is ordered at the same time as a doll, the stand will be 25% off. One stand per doll. $9.50 Add to Cart

NOTE: This is the last tiny doll of the series I began in 2004 and was supposed to be a series of 12. This is Number 20, so a good place to stop. I will continue with my Tiny Nursery Rhyme and Fairy Tale Series and nearly all of the 20 Tinies in this series will continue to be available in the future, just not any new ones. Probably.

Tiny Annabelle

 

TINY DOLL NO. NINETEEN (2020-21) ~ A TINY (3.5") ANNABELLE INSPIRED BY TASHA TUDOR'S BELOVED "A is for Annabelle"

My Tiny version of Annabelle will be recognized from the cover of the alphabet book "A is for Annabelle" by Tasha Tudor. She has painted blonde hair fashioned with a snood which can be seen in back below her straw bonnet trimmed with pink silk ribbon and a lace ruffle. Her dress is, of course, micro pink gingham in the late 1800's style with full petticoat, pantalets and pink slippers. All dolls available only with no hanging loop. Stands recommended.

HITTY SIZE (6.5") IZANNAH WALKER DOLL

The doll receiving the most "must haves" at the 2018 UFDC Convention Sales Room in my booth was the Hitty size Izannah Walker I have been promising. This first one will come as pictured but there will be many more outfits to choose from later once she (and he) is in full production, plus most of Hitty's clothes will fit not to mention all of Hitty's accessories and furniture. Her price is $425 and she will come with a stand and the tiny cat.

IZANNAH WALKER 6" BOY - MAY BE PREORDERED
The new smaller boy will look like this but like the Hitty size girl, will have molded arms and legs with cloth body between. Elements of his outfit are still awaiting arrival of new fabrics and will be a new design but similar to historical boy's outfits of the times. He will also have his own accessory of a small wooden wagon filled with blocks. The new anticipated availability is late February. His price is $425.

SUSANNA - The latest 9" molded papier mache doll from the Louisa mold. She won the coveted chunk of fabric I had found and saved years ago for a special doll and finally agreed to let her have it. Susanna has many features of Louisa including a mohair wig worn with one of my hand-crocheted snoods, with her coatdress styled with a hand-crocheted collar. She carries a strawberry emery and a printed cat as a spot of color and wears leather high button shoes. Since she looks best standing, she will come with a wooden stand.
Susanna is a limited edition (24). $695 Add to Cart

MY LATEST 9" MOLDED PAPIER MACHE DOLLS READY FOR RESERVATIONS

NEW EDITION OF LOUISA - Louisa was the first of several dolls from this mold. She has become far and away the most requested edition of a doll in my career. I ended up doing 3 full editions of her after mounting the difficult search for the just-right fabrics each time. And yet the requests keep coming. So, after search number 4 (these searches take many hours and several days), I have located a new yet still perfect cinnamon brown plaid for another edition. Since the first Louisa's in 2009, the dolls now have posable arms and real cobbled shoes, but will still have the same mohair wigs and hand crocheted snoods and collars. Limited edition of (24).

NEW SERIES - FAIRY TALE AND NURSERY RHYME CHARACTERS

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD TINY DOLL (3.5" tall)


In this past year's R John Wright Convention Workshops I did a series of 3 dolls - Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel - for his theme of Fairy Tales. I borrowed my Tiny Dolls basic look and construction for these tiny dolls, adding posable arms and legs to the bodies. She is dressed in her red cape, 2-piece dress and apron with pantalets under where you can see her red shoes peeking out and carries her tiniest of baskets. Includes her stand.

THE NEWEST DOLL IN THE SERIES: For those collecting this series, Little Miss Muffet is now in production.

The odious spider, embroidered, is stealthily crawling up the tuffet.
She is $225. Add to Cart


DICK AND JANE READERS - These tiny books began as an accessory to a doll I did for a convention souvenir with a 1950's theme, but are now available as stand alone doll accessories and have delightful tiny reproductions inside from actual Dick and Jane series books. Since I was in first grade in 1956, these very books were part of my own beginnings in reading, so I chose to make these little hand bound books for that reason and inside I tell the history of how these readers came to be the standard for learning to read for many decades.

GINNY DOLL PAPERDOLL FOR YOUR DOLLS

HITTY'S TINY PRINTED CAT

This cat is not new, but such a popular and cute tiny item that I am keeping it here. A perfect accessory for Hitty is this very tiny (1.5" tall) printed cloth cat taken from an antique unsewn cat by the Arnold Printworks Patented 1892. These printed cats and other animals and dolls were very popular for the home sewer who was to sew up and stuff these printed treasures for playthings long ago. GW has reworked the original artwork for this very easy kit or a delightful addition finished for your Hitty.

NEW CHEEK PAINT AND BRUSH SET - The answer to your prayers for perfect cheeks

Use acrylics for all other painting, but use alkyd oils for at least cheeks for better, easier cheeks. If you will be using these paints soon after receipt, the best way to paint cheeks fairly effortlessly is with alkyd oils (fast drying oils). Oils allow you to easily feather out the edges using a dry brush and virtually no paint on your brush. Clean up with turpentine or turp substitute. You can then seal with varnish (recommended is Mod Podge Matte) and antique as usual. Included with the set of three colors in small paint pots (Titanium White, Cadmium Red Deep, and Burnt Sienna) are a concealer brush, a brush point Fantastik Paint Stick for blending or cheeks on tiny dolls, a foam Q-tip, and basic instructions.
