All ready to head to her new home in time for Christmas! This is a special order custom doll for Paula M. She is a reproduction of my Isabeau with an almost perfect paint surface, bare feet, and a dress made from fabric in her new mom’s stash of reproduction Civil War era cotton prints.
Trimming the tree.
Paula’s doll took a few minutes to help decorate the parlor, before packing for her trip to her new home ❤
Hmmm… which color ornament to hang first?
Black velvet bows on her shoulders add a dressy touch to her dress.
Ringlett curls 🙂

Oh, she is a beauty! I know that I have written this before, but I love the near perfect paint surfaces. I can then imagine what they looked like in the 19th century when some lucky little girl received a doll like this.
I’m not going to allow my Isabeau anywhere near these pictures. She’d be so jealous of that flawless complexion, I know this!!!! Billie
I wouldn’t worry, your Isabeau has a well loved complexion. Flawless can’t compete with love!
Okay, Paula, I’ll tell her you said this!
