Behind the Scenes at Today’s Third Thursday

I really love the idea of having one specific day each month when people can expect to see my newly made dolls that are available for sale.¬† That said, some months it is a bit of a challenge to make “Third Thursdays” happen. This was one of those months! ūüôā

Here is the story of Today’s Third Thursday.

To start with you’ve probably noticed that today is August 15th, that means it feels like it’s way to early in the month for it to already be the third Thursday!¬† I know, technically no matter what day of the month the the third Thursday falls on, it’s been close to 30 days since the last one… but it just feels wrong!

Next, August in New England is almost always HUMID! My gardens are pretty happy about all that rain and humidity, but oil paints just don’t feel the same way!

Then there is the fact that August is the last month of summer… and there are all those things that need to be done while there is still a bit of summer left. At my house that means gardening, gardening and more gardening, plus most importantly ~ spending time with my granddaughter before preschool starts up again.

Which brings us to this morning…

This is what the doll house looked like when I opened up the painting studio at 7:30 this morning…¬† during the past few weeks this studio has been more play house than studio…

play time
Furniture out of the kitchen and dolls all lined up and ready to play…

 

H
… apparently the letter of the day is H ūüôā

 

This is what has been going on between all the doll making and gardening ‚̧

This is the music that has been playing in my studio while I painted this week ‚̧

Once the studio was opened up the race was on! The doll dress, which was still damp after washing, went in front of a fan. Doll parts were checked to make sure they were dry. Preliminary photos were taken, doll parts were sewn together, a drawstring was run through the neck of the dress. The doll house was tidied, more photos were taken, videos were made. Then a rush to upload videos and photos, write descriptions and post it all online. Sweet relief! The post went up right at 12:00!!

Charlcie SOLD$2200.

This is my third reproduction of Charlcie. The original doll is one that I purchased for my own collection, and is only an Izannah Walker head on a c.1900 baby doll cloth body, so I will be making her a new reproduction body. The antique Izannah Walker doll is named Charlcie, after my great-grandmother, Charlcie Savannah Suzybelle Walker.
This Charlcie is 23 inches tall. Her body is made of new 100% cotton, stuffed with organic cotton stuffing. Her head is pressed cloth and is made of silk stockinette, which has been painted with multiple layers of artist‚Äôs oils, as have her arms and legs. Her ‚Äúsecond skin‚ÄĚ body covering is made from antique raspberry pink glazed cotton. She is dressed entirely in antique fabrics, laces, and buttons. Her clothing includes a chemise, split pantelettes, a petticoat, two dresses, a nightgown and an apron. The pink dress is made from an antique woven check cotton. The skirt of the dress has hand sewn cartridge pleating (at the top instead of gathers).¬† The blue dress is an antique indigo and white print cotton. Her nightgown is a re-purposed antique baby gown and her apron is made from two antique double pink fabrics. It took me approximately 140 hours (of actual working time) to create the doll and clothing. I made her using the same methods and same materials (with just one or two exceptions where the materials are no longer available and I‚Äôve had to use modern equivalents) that Izannah Walker used to make the original dolls.

Charlcie is being offered for sale on a first come basis. The way it works is simple. If you would like to purchase her, please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com. I’ll go by the time stamp when I receive your email to determine whose request is first.

Charlcie and her complete wardrobe sells $2200.00, which is less than the pieces would be individually. The price 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 ‚Äď and in many cases the requirement that I actually take the package to the post office rather than scheduling it for pick-up.
