Denise’s Doll

I’ve just finished the doll that I have been making for Denise.  Here are some of the photos that I have taken to remember her by.

Patiently waiting for the glue on her shoes to dry...

She is dressed in layers of pure white.

Two ringlets in front of each ear and seven across the nape of her neck.

Tiny bare toes, hand knit socks and hand made leather shoes.

Her shoes have scalloped tops and hand dyed silk ribbon laces.

Notice the tiny hand sewn stitches along her shoe soles...

I’ve just received the most lovely note from Denise, which I am sharing so that I can say how very special  my customers are and how happy it makes me to create my dolls for them.  I am truly blessed.

“Thank you so much, Paula!!  My doll is home, and just wonderful in every way!  I love how you did her dress with chemise peeking out, her shoes, her curls, everything.  You must be the incarnation of Izannah!  I’m so happy to have her, and thank you again.

Yours,
Denise”

One last parting gift, a keepsake coral necklace.
