The first doll I'm going to show is one that was given to me by my great aunt Becky when I was twelve years old. I made the clothing that she has on about 25 years ago. She lays in a baby carriage that I purchased about fourteen years ago. The quilt in the carriage was pieced together by Maggie and quilted by me. The doll is a Armand Marseille Dream Baby.
She has held up much better than I have over the years.
The next doll is one that I made to look like my grandson Donovan at 18 months of age. My sister Marlene and I took classes to learn making porcelain dolls 18 years ago. Marlene made several while I made just the two that I'm going to show you.
Donovan had the fluffiest pale blond hair when he was young and the bluest eyes. Here he's dressed in his Christmas romper with a white turtle neck sweater.
Since I'd made a doll to look like my grandson it was only fair to make one to look like my granddaughter Ariel.
This is what Ariel looked like at 8 months. She's also dressed for Christmas. I designed the little jumper she's wearing.
The next doll is my one attempt at making a doll using FIMO modeling clay.
His name is Wee Willy. Although he was fun to make I never made another. I've had the little Jack-o-lantern in a couple of pics and I believe I mentioned that Maggie made it.
I know that I'm not the only woman who has to have her toys. I've seen some from time to time on other blogs and figured that I'd show you some of mine.
Don't forget to mark November 11th, 12th and 13th down on your calendar for the Old Fashioned Craft Show. There are some very talented artists who will have some wonderful and unique items for sale.
As always thanks for stopping by.
