An Unexpected Sick Day ~ November Third Thursday Postponed

 

m o d 8 (2)

😦 Unfortunately I am going to have to postpone tomorrow’s Third Thursday… I’ve pulled a muscle in my shoulder doing a bit too much last minute fall garden clean-up. So I suppose a better title to this post would be “An Unexpected Minor Injury Day” – LOL! I’ve been trying to sew and finish up tomorrow’s offerings, but it looks like that is just not going to happen. My stitching and painting are both horridly clumsy… So I’m giving up, taking some Advil and propping a heating pad on my shoulder. I should be better soon, and when that happens the dolls and I will either expand December’s Third Thursday or we’ll do something fun, perhaps a Christmas Pop Up Shop! ❤

Tilly J. Lamb ~ Two of her Younger Sisters are Available

img_6090

Two years ago I was fortunate to welcome an amazing Izannah Walker doll to my doll family.  I eventually decided to name her Josephine after one of my father’s grandmothers, Henrietta Josephine Wallace Prather. https://izannahwalker.com/2016/11/01/lost-in-a-daydream-of-past-childhoods/

Last year I was discussing Josephine with Monica Bessette. Monica told me that she was just sure my Josephine was the doll called “Tilly Lamb” in the book Your Dolls and Mine A Collectors Handbook by Janet Pagter Johl. In further discussion Monica also mentioned that Josephine is pictured in The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Dolls by Dorothy S. Coleman and Elizabeth A. Coleman. Josephine and I are very thankful to Monica for helping bring Josephine’s full name to light. Now she is Tilly J. Lamb! All of her sisters here at the doll’s house are following my mother’s family tradition of calling the siblings by their middle names, so she continues to be called Josephine, as well as Tilly J. Lamb on official occasions. ❤

On Tuesday I introduced you to Tilly J. Lamb’s younger sisters, my first four reproductions of sweet Josephine. Two of them have already found wonderful new homes. Miss A. Lamb and Miss D. Lamb are still looking for doll families of their very own.  https://izannahwalker.com/2018/09/25/meet-the-lamb-sisters-4-dolls-available-for-sale-happy-201st-birthday-izannah-part-4/

Both sisters are dressed in long sleeved brown dresses, made from antique fabric. They will come with an antique petticoat, pantalettes and a chemise made from antique fabric, Two brass brooches, one at the neck and a slightly smaller one at the waist, and a tiny pincushion. The pincushions are like the ones shown in the American Girl’s Book by Miss Eliza Leslie, although they are a traditional form that dates back at least to the later part of the 18th century.  Their dresses were made using a pattern taken from an original Izannah Walker dress, and are perfect for gardening since the long sleeves protects the girl’s pale skin from excessive sunlight and the practical brown fabric does not show dirt. ❤ Yet the dresses look sweet enough for a party with the addition of a few accessories.  The dolls are $1575.00 each, which includes free insured shipping to any U.S. address, with no sales tax unless they are shipped to CT. They are being sold on a first come basis and will be ready to ship out at the beginning of next week. Paypal, check, money order, credit cards and lay-away accepted.  Please email p.walton.asweetremembrance@gmail.com to purchase or with questions.  I’ll go by the time I receive your email if more than one person asks to buy the same doll.

One of the truly amazing things about the reproductions of Tilly Lamb is the paint surface. All of her gentle wear and age is present in her new sisters. It’s hard to show you just how amazingly detailed it is….

The dolls are welcoming the Lamb sisters to today’s celebration. These four young misses are all made from a mold taken from Tilly J. Lamb. Tilly J. Lamb is mainly known as Josephine here at home, following my mother’s family tradition of calling the children by their middle names. The original Tilly Lamb joined my doll family slightly less than two years ago. These are the first reproductions of her that I have made. It’s been a very interesting adventure! The first thing I noticed about these dolls is that it appears as if dolls made from Tilly’s mold are going to have a mind of their own. More so than any other doll, they each come out of the  mold looking like individuals. That’s true for all of Izannah’s dolls as well as my reproductions, because pressed cloth is a softer, less rigid method of molding heads… but these dolls in particular show that more than the others. It’s something that I personally love about Izannah’s dolls. ❤

The next very striking thing about these doll is their paint surface. You can clearly see all of the wear and paint loss that Tilly accrued during her lifetime reflected in these reproductions. They show their age, but in a very graceful refined manner. Tilly is a larger 20 inch doll, that has slightly different boots without the center seam in them that you see on many of Izannah’s dolls. Her arms and legs are plumper and she has a different body proportion. Which means I had to completely redraft all of the body patterns especially for her.

All four of the sisters are dressed in long sleeved brown dresses, made from antique fabric. They will come with an antique petticoat, pantalettes and a chemise made from antique fabric, Two brass brooches, one at the neck and a slightly smaller one at the waist, and a tiny pincushion. The pincushions are like the ones shown in the American Girl’s Book by Miss Eliza Leslie, although they are a traditional form that dates back at least to the later part of the 18th century.  Their dresses were made using a pattern taken from an original Izannah Walker dress, and are perfect for gardening since the long sleeves protects the girl’s pale skin from excessive sunlight and the practical brown fabric does not show dirt. ❤ Yet the dresses look sweet enough for a party with the addition of a few accessories.  The dolls are $1575.00 each, which includes free insured shipping to any U.S. address, with no sales tax unless they are shipped to CT.

A Very Soggy Garden Party!~ Happy 201st Birthday Izannah ~ Part 3

 

Will the rain stay away long enough for the party? …  After the cake was baked the ever hopeful Hannah and Charlcie ventured out to set the table for their birthday tea party…

 

“Oh goodness!” “Here comes the rain!” ” Hannah you take the teapot and I’ll bring the cake!” “I hope we get back to the house before the scones are soaked…”

 

Fortunately Eliza Jane had thought ahead to just such an eventuality! She had the parlor clean and a fire burning in the stove to help ward off the chill rainy weather.

just as nice
“I think this looks just as nice as a garden party.” “It’s so cozy in the parlor and it will be nice to sit together and have a tea party right here.”
gather the family
“Now all we have to do is to gather the rest of the family and our guests together for the party”
cake
“The cake smells delicious Charlcie!” “Thank you, it’s one of my favorite receipts.”
what are you wearing
“Izzybelle whatever are you wearing?” “I found it in the attic. It’s going to be my Halloween costume.” “Well it’s not Halloween today. Today is our birthday tea party in honor of Izannah. It’s a very important day!” “All the more reason to dress up” reasoned Izzybelle “and I’m NOT changing clothes!”
hurry
“Miss Lamb, are you ready for the party yet?” “No, not quiet yet…”
“We are so happy that one of our dearest friends could be here for the party!”
wish
“make a wish…”
present
Every year the dolls get a present in honor of Izannah’s birthday. This year they received a little wooden doll to add to their toy box ❤
Happy 201st Birthday!
“Happy 201st Birthday Izannah!” ❤

Getting the Gardens Ready for the Party ~ Happy 201st Birthday Izannah Part 2

The dolls have been very busy out in the gardens for the past few months. They are hoping that the rain will hold off long enough for them to enjoy one last garden party with all the remaining summer flowers & produce from the gardens….

Isabeau in the potting shed
Isabeau has been out in the doll’s potting shed… The seeds she started have grown into sturdy little plants that will soon be ready to go out into the garden… hollyhocks & thyme ❤
here is the lavender
“Isabeau here is the lavender you asked for.” “Thank you Isane. It smells wonderful!”

The dolls share their potting shed with the bees, who are happy to provide the little painted cloth girls all the honey they need to sweeten their tea, in return for the all the flowers that the dolls have planted around their skep.

more ?
“Do you think we should add more lavender to the honey?”

 

never too much
“you can never have too much lavender…”

Gardening is hard work for little dolls…

 

 

 

 

Oops….

oh dear...
oh dear…

Would you like to take a garden tour while we wait for the party to start at 4:30 pm Eastern Time?
