February’s Last Hurrah! Both Little Sisters Are Sold… Thank you!


2 dolls available February 2019
This month’s offerings… Lizzybit on the left and Izzybelle on the right. Plus a long sleeved red dress sized to fit one of the girls larger 18-19 inch sisters.

For February’s (snow delayed) Third Thursday I have two one small little Izzy’s who are looking for loving homes ❤ The larger doll is made from my mold of the antique Lizzybit. She is 16 inches tall. Her smaller companion is 14.5 inch tall Izzybelle.

This month’s theme is little sisters, with a focus on paint surface details. Both of these dolls present an aged appearance, like that of original surviving antique Izannah Walker dolls. Some of you, who follow my Izannah Walker Journal, will be familar with the original, highly adventuresome Izzybelle. You’ll know that she has gone through some rough times and has been greatly loved during her long lifetime. For this particular younger sister of Izzybelle I have removed some of the original doll’s worst damage, leaving you this glimpse of how pretty and sweet the original doll must have been in her youth. ❤

The fabric for the doll’s dresses is a wonderful previously unused mid-19th century dot print. The color is reminiscent of sunny summer marigolds, ripe autumn pumpkins, and the golden hues of seashells on a windswept beach…

 

 

 

The dolls and extra dress are offered for sale on a first come basis. The way it works is simple. If you would like to purchase one of the dolls, or the dress, email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com. I’ll go by the time stamp when I receive your email to determine whose request is first.

The dolls are $1250.00 each, and the dress is $225.00, which includes free shipping to any address in the continental U.S. Dolls are mailed via USPS Priority Mail and are insured for their full value. International Orders  will be charged exact postage + a $10.00 handling fee for all international locations, except Canada, to help off-set the time it takes me to deal with customs forms – and in many cases the requirement that I actually take the package to the post office rather than scheduling it for pick-up.

Payment may be made via PayPal, credit card, personal check, or lay-away. Sales tax is 6.35% if I am shipping to a Connecticut address.

A Red Letter Day ~Two Red Dresses Available

IMG_0653 (2)Red! ❤ Such a wonderful color and such a challenge for me to find when I am searching for antique fabrics! I’ve had a small quantity of floral striped red fabric stashed away for several years. I had been planning to make dresses from it for my antique Izannah Walker dolls… When I was contemplating Valentine’s Day and trying to think of something a tiny bit special to mark the day, I decided instead that I should use that fabric for a very tiny little Valentine’s Day Pop-Up Dress Shop!

Zanna and Isabeau offered to be today’s models. ❤  I had just enough fabric to make three dresses, these two matching long sleeved dresses, with a single growth tuck in each skirt, and a third make-do dress with short sleeves and a “false hem” of coordinating off-white and red fabric.

2 dresses available for sale www.izannahwalker.com
Zanna & Isabeau modeling Dresses 1 & 2. They are wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day ❤

1. & 2. – ONE DRESS IS SOLD – ONE AVAILABLE  The two matching long sleeved dresses are finished and available for sale. They have 7 inch long skirts, so they are perfect if you’d like a shorter skirt for an 18 – 19 inch doll dressed as a younger child, or if you have slightly smaller doll made from my Anna mold. These dresses are too large for any of my Izzybelles. $225.00 each, which includes free shipping to any US address. There is no sales tax unless you are a Connecticut resident (6.35%). Please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com if you wish to purchase dresses 1 and/or 2. Sold on a first come basis. Payment by Paypal, credit card, personal check, or lay-away.

3. – Dress three is not quite done… today has been a wild winter’s day. My best made plans were torn asunder by icy weather and a dead car battery, so I have been ferrying my near and dear ones back and forth to schools for most of the day. ❤ I’ll post the third dress just as soon as I put in the final stitches, so please check back!  Dress 3 will be the same as dresses 1 & 2, except it will have short gathered and banded sleeves, no growth tuck and a “false hem” with a different off-white and red print antique fabric used for the hem on the inside of the skirt.  It will also be priced at $225.00.

Pop Up Shop!!! ~ Antique & Handmade Goods to Welcome St. Nicholas!

st nicholas day5

Welcome to my December 2nd Pop Up Shop, with offerings themed especially for St. Nicholas Day! Many years ago, when my sons were quite young, we lived in Minnesota where my children’s nursery school and many of our neighbors celebrated St. Nicholas Day on December 6th. On the evening of December 5th the children would put their shoes by the front door and leave carrots in the shoes for St. Nicholas’ horse. In the morning they would discover that St. Nicholas had filled their shoes with small toys and treats. ❤ My boys always loved this early December celebration, which heralded in the Christmas season. It was one of my favorite things too… after all what could be better than a holiday celebration in which shoes play a major role? You can probably guess that means I am extremely partial to shoes, which I freely admit 🙂 Doll shoes, baby shoes, new shoes, old shoes… I love them all! So in honor of St. Nicholas Day, and shoes, I am offering the following items for sale.

St. Nicholas Day Pop-Up Shop
Before and After… a decorating idea ❤ Antique Baby Shoes w/ handmade spun cotton carrots to leave out for St. Nicholas’ horse on the night of December 5th, displayed with antique toys, small treats and a spun cotton Santa to depict the items children find left in their shoes. Antique baby shoes and spun cotton carrots sold as a set. Spun Cotton Santa sold separately. All other items are for display purposes only and are not for sale.

It’s a busy day in the doll’s house, as the dolls decorate the parlor and set out their shoes for St. Nicholas. Down in the kitchen freshly baked gingerbread has been left to cool, before being made into into houses…. Drawn by the irresistible smell of their very favorite food, a trio of bears have come to call & made themselves at home.

Handmade Spun Cotton Carrots
* A note about all of the spun cotton items * I hand spin loose cotton fibers in the traditional antique manner to create all of my spun cotton ornaments. Then I hand paint each one. The larger carrots are accented with antique rayon seam binding and the doll size carrots are topped with silk ribbons. Each bunch of carrots has a handwritten note to St. Nicholas ❤

D – $95.00 Adorable white button baby shoes and spun cotton carrots. These shoes originally had something glued to the front of them, I have no idea what that was as nothing but a trace of glue remained. I’ve made them crepe paper rosettes, but you could certainly remove the rosettes and add your own trimmings. These shoes close with white mother of pearl buttons, two of which are missing.

Gingerbread Color Vintage Mohair Bears

Y – $54.00 Large Fully Jointed Vintage Mohair Bear. Soft, cuddly bear, big enough to give you a “bear hug”! Some moth damage, especially on the paw pads. Wearing vintage baby shoes and mittens made from hand dyed red wool.

IMG_7281 (2)IMG_7284 (2)

Z – $44.00 Unique Vintage Baby Bear. I’ve never seen a bear like this before. She wears a pink oil cloth bib and has a hinged metal mouth, with a hole that leads to her “tummy” which is accessed via a zipper in her back. I’m assuming that the idea is that a child could “feed’ her, then the “food” could be removed by unzipping her back. Sewn joints, considerable moth damage, but still very cute in a zoomy kind of way 🙂 To top everything off she is wearing pink shoes!

 

 

 

AA – $35.00 Happy, Hug-able, Vintage Mohair Bear w/Velvet Paw Pads. Cute fully jointed bear. Some moth damage and a loose neck joint which makes it possible for the head to crock to one side and nod, which is actually very charming. ❤

 

 

 

BB – $95.00     Handmade fully jointed bear, antique white mohair, rod jointed arms and legs, disk jointed neck, glass eyes. My own original design ❤

1 Very Special Dress Available Just in Time for Easter SOLD

1 Easter dress available for sale.
SOLD Isabeau graciously consented to model the dress so that you can imagine how it would look on your own dear doll.

Getting a new dress for Easter was a consistent annual occurrence during my childhood. I occasionally received a new dress at Christmas time, but I always had one for Easter.  My mother made many of my Easter dresses… which makes remembering them even sweeter. Following in that tradition I have one very special Easter dress available for sale, so that you and your favorite doll can relive Easter memories of your own ❤

Made from mid-19th century fabric that one graced the back  of a hand pieced quilt, this dress features extra fabric which creates a very full skirt. The skirt has two growth tucks and a double row of black velvet trim. The very short sleeves also have double tucks and a single velvet band. More velvet trims the waist, which closes with a sash of the most amazing wide antique velvet ribbon. The drawstring at the neck casing and ribbon sash make the size of this dress somewhat adjustable. The dress, which has an 8 inch skirt length, will fit my 18 – 19 inch reproduction Izannah Walker dolls. The ties also make this dress very suitable for dressing fragile antique dolls and are very accommodating if you display your doll using a doll stand. I have gently hand washed this dress, but because the fabric had never previously been washed, the fabric retains much of it’s original sizing, which gives it a great deal of body.

SOLD Only one dress available.  Email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com if you are interested in buying this dress, or have questions about it. The purchase price is $250.00, which includes free shipping to any US address. Payment via Paypal, credit card, or lay-away. Sold on a first come basis.
