Shop Update

It's been a lovely sunny day here today, if a bit chilly, but it's been great for taking photos.....

I've popped two Izannah Walker style dolls into my Etsy shop

They are cast in flumo, from my Mary mould, which I made from my own original sculpture. Each doll is hand painted and costumed uniquely........my short attention span wouldn't have it any other way!!!!

All the clothing is fully removable, the element of "play" is so important to me........ There's lots of hand sewing, and of course my favourite crackle glazed finish....

I try to give my Izannahs an English twist.....tartan was really popular in Victorian England, along with the ankle strap shoes. I've been digging deep in my vintage lace stash to embellish these girls undies too.....

Enjoy!

Not so Wordless Wednesday!

Although we're having a mini heatwave here this week - yesterday was the hottest September day since 1911 - this little lady is full of mellow autumn shades.....

Another Izannah Walker style doll, she's my original sculpt, hand cast in air dried slip, hand painted, uniquely dressed and available here.

Shop Update Sunday

I've been dog sitting again this week, it's lovely to get out and about early in the mornings, and have someone to warm my feet in the evenings!!!

I even found a conker, so I think that autumn is on the way......

It almost makes me wish I was off somewhere warmer.....like these lucky fellows
