The Twins Welcome March ~ SOLD

IMG_9508 (2)The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.

When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.

The first day of March and the boys have taken over the parlor… March is blowing in on cold winds, which has kept the twins indoors. So they have spent the day making a secret stronghold out of two chairs and a quilt, constructing a kite to fly just as soon as the winds turn warm, and working on a puzzle. Meanwhile the cats are staying warm and toasty near the wood stove… It’s been a cozy, dreamy beginning to the new month. ❤

The dolls and I have been busily snipping paper to make a few special love tokens for Valentine’s Day! Most were inspired by hand drawn 19th century paper dolls. I’ve always found little pencil  or ink drawn antique paper dolls to be quite endearing ❤ Tiny cut out drawings, made to amuse a child, treasured and saved… precious bits of ephemera.

Reproduction Izannah Walker Dolls – ISABEAU NOW SOLD / ANDREW NOW SOLD

This is such a sweet group of dolls. The twins are the first dolls for sale from a brand new mold and Isabeau and Andrew are made from two of my all time favorite molds. All of these dolls have very colorful second skins. Isabeau’s in a deep raspberry pink and the boys all have a deep garnet red. Both fabrics are antique glazed cottons ❤

I don’t make all that many boy dolls, so these are a rarity. There is something just so sweet about little boys… though I may be prejudiced, as I am the mother of three boys… Every doll family needs a brother or two in amongst all the girls ❤

Andrew – $1250. SOLDIMG_8131 (2).JPG

SOLD Andrew is a 17 inch tall boy doll made from my mold of Anna. He is dressed in antique red plaid with black cotton tape trim and has black painted boots with red tops in the iconic Izannah Walker boy style. Under his plaid dress he is wearing a chemise, short pantalettes, and a petticoat.

Twin Boys – $2500IMG_8122 (2).JPG

The twins are made from a new mold and are the first dolls from this mold that I am offering for sale ❤ They are 18.5 inchs tall and are also dressed in red plaid dresses with black cotton tape trim. They have dark green painted boots, which is very rare and the original color of the boots on the antique doll they modeled after. They have chemises and also come with matching plaid pantaloons. I was contemplating making them a pair of winter dresses and matching pantaloons from an off-white antique fabric printed with black and red riding crops and horse shoes. If their new mom is interested in a 2nd set of clothing for them, the additional cost would be $500, and bring their total price up to $3000.

Isabeau – $1250 SOLDIMG_8167 (2)

SOLD Isabeau is 18 inches tall and has the worn, aged paint surface of the original antique Izannah Walker doll that her mold was made from. She has black painted boots with red stripes around the tops, and is wearing a chemise, pantalettes, a petticoat and a long sleeved dress made from antique brown fabric.

20 inch Blonde Parian doll with outstanding pink body!!! The only clothing she has are pantalettes and a petticoat that someone made for her about 30 years ago, so what she truly needs is a nice set of antique clothing  $595.  plus shipping.

Happy 202nd Birthday Izannah Walker!
Please come help us celebrate Izannah Walker’s 202nd birthday, September 25th – October 1st, here on http://www.izannahwalker.com

I’ve been working away here in my studios, preparing for one of my favorite times of the year, my annual Izannah Walker birthday celebration. It is always a special event here in the doll’s house, as the dolls and I make time to simply play and enjoy the very special dolls that Izannah Walker created.

My Izannah birthday celebration changes a bit from year to year, but always features my collection of antique Izannah Walker dolls, plus some of the dolls I reproduce from her originals.

This year there will be a bit of make believe, a scoop of education, a cupful of beautiful photos, and a pound of fun, all stirred up with a pinch of magic! … oh yes, and cake, lots and lots of cake! ❤  Introductions to some of the new dolls I’m making, just for this celebration, will also be sprinkled in throughout the week, just like decorations on top of a birthday cake ❤

So please come visit everyday next week as the dolls and I share our birthday party with you!

Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll · Third Thursdays · Where to Shop

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! 🙂

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 🙂

 

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!!
