Some Favorites from my Archives


Over on Facebook, several friends and myself have been sharing some of our favorite dolls from our archives. So much fun to "visit" with some olde friends that have been adopted and moved away...and since all of of my newest ones are in several stages of undress at this moment, I thought I would share a few here.  You are welcome to click on them to get a better view. Enjoy.....

New Year, New Rooms, New Dollies!


Well, it has been awhile since I have had a few moments to sit down and post! But I have been busy moving, sculpting, painting (both dolls & walls) and sewing.  Last autumn we, ok I, had decide the living room and dining rooms needed to be painted, (old walls and woodwork came with a very boring "apartment beige"). Well, that would be fine, but then I also decided that we needed new chandeliers and chair & crown moldings...oh, and the sofa & wing chair recovered! ..... see how things snowball ... Needless to say holiday decorating was kept at a minimum....And if that wasn't enough, one of the huge basement rooms was vacated by our son and so I got a new studio 3 times the size of my old one! Oh yes sounds good, until you have to move all your"stuff" ! Which can be a very good thing because you end up finding so many goodies that you had forgotten that you bought!

Dining room so far. Not sure if I will do any stenciling, kinda enjoying the simplicity right now. And I think I need to hook a rug for that corner, needs something textiley...


One wall of my studio organized, (for now).....


So, I shall keep trying to organize a bit more, but my fingers ache for my clay and fabric.... Several new dollies are in the works...Oh, if only I didn't have to sleep, too many little "characters" dancing in my head! Thinking ...spring and garden.... inspirations....hmmm ...keep warm...  Will be back soon,  come and visit me on Facebook

~ Livy ~


Hello! Livy is one of my newest 20" hand sculpted paparclay and fabric dolls! She is partially rag stuffed for that lumpy old fashioned feel.  She has separate thumbs and a "second skin" for neatness & durability like the Izannah dolls.  Glass eyes and a twist of antique flax fibers for her braids.


Her clothing is generously "aged" and her hand sculpted high button shoes are topped with her droopy, aged, cotton stockings! She is currently available at Sharon Renninger's Gatherings in Kutztown ,Pa.
