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.

Canadian orders will be charged exact postage.

Although if you are like me, I keep my St. Nicholas themed decorations out until after Christmas. lay-away
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 ❤

The Lamb Sisters.

IMG_6065 (2)Miss D. Lamb SOLD, seated on the left and Miss A. Lamb SOLD, standing on the right, are both looking for new homes of their very own ❤ 20 inches $1575.00 each

Read more about them in this post –

A $ 85.00  SOLD Amazing shoes to display at Christmas with spun cotton carrots and to use for doll shoes the rest of the year! ❤









B – $78.00 Tiny high button baby shoes w/ spun cotton carrots, just the right size for larger dolls. ❤





C – $75.00 Sweet early baby shoes made from faded red and black leather, with brass buttons and spun cotton carrots. One button is missing. Perfect for a large papier-mache or china doll, display or as study shoes for making doll shoes.






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. If you would like replacement buttons, I can add two antique buttons, but I don’t have an exact match.




E – $70 Pale blue and black button up baby shoes w/ spun cotton carrots.





F – $75 Little black leather button baby shoes & spun cotton carrots.

These next seven pairs of shoes are very worn children’s shoes that I stockpiled when I was making very big bears. I dressed the bears in vintage 1920’s – 1940’s romper suits and dresses with these shoes on their feet ❤ I still love that look! Adorable on teddies, or cute displayed in prim rooms!

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 ❤

Happy 199th Birthday Izannah Walker! – Part 5 -All Reproduction Dolls Have Been SOLD – Thank you!

Welcome back to my celebration of Izannah Walker’s 199th birthday! I have three of my reproduction Izannah Walker dolls who are looking for homes of their own.  Two of the dolls are twins and are only being sold as a pair, because they can not bear to be parted from one another.

Annabelle & Annalee SOLD Thank You so much for looking!!!!img_7616

Annabelle and Annalee are twins made from my mold of the original antique Izannah Walker doll Anna.  The sisters are approximately 16.5 inches tall. Their painted boots have laces and red trim around the tops.  The girls have matching underwear and will have matching “double pink” dresses with fitted bodices and sleeves.  Although I’m sure that Annalee is hoping that you won’t notice, one of the sleeves on her dress has had to be remade in similar, but not exactly matching fabric.  Annabelle scolded her quite severely when she tore it!  You can tell that Annalee is the more adventurous twin, she is ever so slightly more worn than her more virtuous sister.  Annalee is the twin who climbs up the apple tree to pick the apples, while Annabelle stays on the ground and catches them in the skirt of her apron.  I’ll be finishing the girl’s petticoats and dresses this coming week.  As I am sure you can tell from today’s previous posts, sweet Cloe has been here with us quite a bit lately, which means that grandma’s doll making schedule has had a few revisions…  The twins come with matching antique pins, coral bead necklaces and their own trunk, which can hold all of their belongings.  The twins can be yours for $ 2765.00 are SOLD.  Add an extra every day dress for each of them for $400.00, or matching party dresses for $500.00. Matching pinafore aprons like the one Hannah was wearing earlier today for an extra $300.00, or purchase my Izannah Walker doll clothes pattern and sew a wardrobe for the twins.  The clothing pattern is $29.00 and is sized to fit 18 inch Izannahs so you’ll need to reduce it to 91% of full size to fit the Annas.

Izzybelle is SOLDimg_7557

I have one sweet little 14.5 inch,  barefoot Izzybelle for sale SOLD.  She is $1300.00 and comes with a full set of underwear and a dress. You will be able to choose her clothing style and fabrics.  Add handmade leather shoes and socks for $75.00, or an extra dress for $200.00 – $250.00.  You can use my Izannah Walker doll clothes pattern to sew for Izzybelle if you reduce it to 82% of full size.

You’ve heard of having 2 left feet, as you can see I got quite the surprise when I started to put Izzybelle together today!  I had four left arms!!! That probably tells you how my week has gone…  Especially since I worked on those arms for over a week and didn’t notice!!! They are such NICE arms too…  Never fear Izzybelle will be getting a right arm.  I’m starting on it in the morning. 🙂

Thank you for coming to meet Izzybelle, Annabelle & Annalee!  They are pleased to make you acquaintance.

Additional Information

If you are interested in purchasing either the twins or Izzybelle, please email me at  The dolls will be sold on a first come basis, so the email with the earliest time will have priority.  You may pay for the dolls by credit card, paypal, personal check, money order, or lay-away.  Free shipping to any US address.  Exact shipping to other countries.
