~*A Dragonfly Dollie*~

I wanted to share a couple of pics of a special order that I just finished up yesterday.The sweet customer that ordered the Butterfly from me,decided her dollie needed a Dragonfly friend.Here she is~

I'm pleased with the way she turned out.She's not the type of doll that I normally make,and it's nice doing different things.Thanks so much for stopping by!

~*Greg's Queen Anne Doll is Finished!*~

.....well,almost! I am just so excited about this doll,that I just couldn't wait to share her!Greg has made her an amazing display theatre!We just have to add curtains,and it will be finished.He is also going to make her a custom chair to sit in.Right now she is sitting in one of my doll's chairs.

Greg has carved her entirely out of wood,just like the 18th century originals were!

Greg has put one of his specialty finishes on her theatre.It is just gorgeous!Pictures don't do it justice at all!The mouldings are beautiful!

He even made a wood floor for it out of 150 year old Heart Pine,from an old barn! It is actually individual planks!Just like a real wood floor!

Her delicately carved wooden hands~

Greg has even given her jointed legs,so that they bend!He also carved them like the originals.The front side of her knees(the green ribbons you see are a part of her knickers)~

The back side of her knees~

Thanks so much for visiting!I'll post more pics,when her theatre is finished!
