~*An Update on Ophelia...*~

Ophelia now has arms,and she seems to like them very well! I have been having so much fun working on this wonderful old dollie!Her body is so intriguing.I would SO love to know the story behind her.She is just wrapped in layer upon layer of old scraps of fabric and lovely old brown striped chintz.Here she is without her arms~

And here she is with her new set that I made for her from Muslin that I tea & coffee stained~



Now on to dressing her!

~*Ophelia....A Lovely Old Soul*~

A couple of days ago I received an amazing doll in the mail that I had won on eBay.She was one of those dollies that the moment I saw her,I knew I had to have her!When I opened the package up,and unwrapped her,I was instantly love struck!She is HUGE! At least 31 inches tall!I am only going to do some minor restorations.She is so beautiful just as she is.She is one of those old souls that just has so much to tell! I have decided to document her humble restoration process here on my blog in case anyone is interested in following along.Here is Ophelia the day she arrived~

She now has a lovely new set of eyes that she seems very thankful for!

Today I am working on a new set of lower arms for her.Pictures soon!

~*A Teddy Bear*~

I just finished my first Teddy Bear that is made in the style of a true old bear.I've made a couple before,but not with all the intricate body parts that make the old bears so special.If anyone knows the maker of the old bear on wheels in the picture,I'd love to find out! I don't think he's a Steiff because the wheels have solid red hubs,and the Steiff's that I've seen have open metal spokes.
