Do you know about the Virtual Doll Conventions that Rachel Hoffman has created on facebook? If not you have been missing something wonderful. Some of you may remember that I have participated in previous VDCs. What you may not have heard about is that Rachel has put together a wonderful free convention that begins next week, as her way of giving something to everyone in the doll world, at a time when we all need to have a break from worry, stress and bad news. ❤
So all of the little cloth girls and I would like to invite you to join the convention, it’s FREE all you have to do is register. Then come for a virtual visit to my front parlor, where we will sit together and I will tell you a tale about Izannah Walker and her dolls. We’ll also talk a bit about mid-19th century clothing and undoubtedly a few other things as well, just as we would if you came to call in person. ❤
Next Saturday evening, October 22nd, you may hear knocking… followed by small giggles coming from your pc, laptop, tablet or phone. Don’t be scared! It will just be all of my little Izzies coming to trick-or-treat. ❤ They would very much like it if you would join us here on http://www.izannahwalker.com for their Haunted Halloween Hour at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
On Saturday morning I will be participating in an online facebook only event. Fifty + amazing artists who belong to the Early American Folk Art and Trades group will be offering some of their work for sale. I will be selling this sweet 18 inch Isane, who will have bare feet, handmade pink leather shoes, with a matching bead necklace, antique white cotton dress trimmed in broderie anglaise, antique white cotton chemise & pantalettes, plus a broderie anglaise petticoat. If you use facebook, please consider dropping by to see all of the wonderful handmade folk art treasures https://www.facebook.com/events/1213533635380525/?active_tab=discussion
Recently my friend, Edyth, suggested that I create a comprehensive list of online sites where people can see my dolls and other handmade works. I do have a lot of different blogs, websites,etc. so a handy reference list is a great idea. Thank you Edyth!!!
Some of you have also sent me personal friend requests on facebook, which is great. I do have a personal facebook account too, which is not what you want if you just want to read about my dolls 🙂 My personal facebook page is full of family, friends, and cats. So if you DON’T want to see hundreds of baby photos my personal page is not the one for you. 🙂
Eliza Jane finally has a name and a dress. 🙂 She is the latest addition to my family of antique Izannah Walker dolls and is named after my great-grandmother, Eliza Jane Tarvin Stogner. Her dress and petticoat are antique that I purchased last summer and fit as if they were made for her. Once I find time to make a mold, Eliza Jane will bring the number of Izannah walker that I can reproduce for you up to twelve!
