I have an update on the articles about the Jenny Lind Doll Club Izannah Walker exhibit. Antique Doll Collector has pushed both my article and Monica Bessette’s to their March 2018 issue, in order to devote more space to them. The March issue should mail to subscribers on 2/22. So no Izzys in February, but lots and lots in March! Click here for information about subscribing to Antique Doll Collector.

The dolls and I have had a very busy day ❤ We spent a little extra time this morning baking a special Valentine treat, Chocolate Bread, an amazing combination of dark chocolate, tart cherries and coffee. While the dough was rising, and filling the house with an enticing scent, we went out to the studio where Josephine, Isabeau and Ismay kept themselves busy making valentines. ❤ ❤ ❤ click on any photo to enlarge ❤ ❤ ❤
Ismay and Isabeau cut out Valentines, weaving paper hearts into tiny paper hands, while Josephine addressed envelopes to all of their dearest friends…
Making Valentines was such fun, and kept the dolls so busy that I was able to work on many other things.
We hope your Valentine’s Day has been just as wonderful and eventful as ours ❤
If you would like to bake a batch of Chocolate Bread too, here is where you can find my recipe.
Welcome! We are so glad you could come!!! Come in and let us show you around. 🙂
Make yourself at home. Feel free to look around! The dolls have been busy decorating all day. 🙂
Isabeau, Eliza Jane, Ismay and Memory are in the kitchen finishing up all the last minute party preparations…
Little Izzybelle is watching out of the window to see who is coming next!
Here, let me take your coat. The party will start in just a few minutes. 🙂
I’ve just finished a very special reproduction Izannah Walker doll for Pamela. I was fortunate enough to get to meet Pamela at the 2014 UFDC convention, where we had a great time chatting and planning all of the details for this doll. She is made from my mold of Anna, an adorable little antique Izannah Walker doll that belongs to my friend Mary.
American Women Dream in Cloth… don’t you just love that title? The January issue of Antique Doll Collector magazine contains this very intriguing article, about the special exhibit on cloth dolls that was at the UFDC convention last summer. It was the perfect reading for a cold and blustery winter’s day.
So while the baby napped, this American woman filled her head with daydreams of glorious cloth dolls, both past and future…
Sadie and I are both looking forward to next months issue so that we can continue our cloth dreams by reading the second half of the article. 🙂
