The 3rd Thursday in August!

Hello, welcome to my second “3rd Thursday”!!! As you are probably aware, I ran into some trouble getting the paint to dry on the dolls I had been  making for today. 😦  Once I figured that out earlier this week I decided that there was no point in fighting Mother Nature. After all I came up with the idea of 3rd Thursdays to make buying and selling my dolls fun and a bit spontaneous! When I had a new plan I began sewing in earnest so that I could present you with a nice selection of doll clothing today instead. ❤ So for all of you who have been asking about additional clothing for your dolls – here are today’s offerings!

There are three dresses and three aprons available for sale. Terms are like always. Email paula@asweetremembrance.com if you are interested in buying! Payment by paypal, credit card, check, or lay-away. Sold on a first come basis. Free shipping within the United States, exact shipping costs to other countries. I’m getting ready to go to a Master Class in Fitting 18th Century Gowns at Eastfield tomorrow through Sunday, and I’m babysitting on Monday – so orders placed today won’t ship until Tuesday. 🙂

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 paula@asweetremembrance.com.  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.

One more bedtime post to finish out our day at 10:00 Eastern time…

A Trip to Brimfield Yields Treasures!

IMG_3414
So many great things to see! Our trip to Brimfield on Wednesday was wonderful.

On Wednesday my husband and I made our annual trek to Brimfield, MA.  Three times a year Brimfield is filled to capacity with dealers selling antiques, vintage items and collectibles of all kinds.  We usually only go in May, although we have occasionally gone in July, when the weather is blisteringly hot.  We’ve never managed to go up in September, since fall is a busy time for us…

Brimfield is usually one of my major buying trips for antique fabrics and trims. This year I found slightly less fabric, but bought more antique silk velvet ribbon than I’ve come across in a long time.

Another item I came away with in abundance was petticoats. Women’s petticoats, baby petticoats and doll petticoats!!!

I even found a doll size mohair coat ❤

The dolls were quite excited when I carried in several new pieces of furniture for their house.  I was lucky enough to find a tiny 1850’s jelly cupboard, a stretcher base table with a wonderful Christmas inscription on the underneath side, and an amazing little rope bed.

Lily #2 is SOLD

Lily #2 available for sale
Lily #2 has found a new home of her very own!

SOLD- Thank You!  I’ve just finished making Lily #2’s pantalettes, petticoat and sun bonnet.  Now that she is finished she is looking for a new home to call her own.

I am able to offer you reproductions of Lily due to the amazing generosity of my friend Susie, who owns the real Lily.  I am currently almost finished  restoring the original Lily and Susie very kindly told me that she wanted me to make a mold from her while she was here.  I’ll be chronicling Lily’s restoration journey here in the upcoming weeks. Lily has a very classic Izannah head and at 17 inches is the middle stair step between my  Isabeau and Izzybelle.

Martha Jenks Chase and Izannah Walker doll
I’m sure you are probably all familiar with this photo of Martha Jenks Chase holding her Izannah Walker doll that appeared in the wonderful article “The Search for Izannah Walker” by Monica Bessette, Doll News, Spring 1994. Look at the Izannah in this photo. I believe that the same mold was used to make this doll and the original Lily. If you do not have a copy of Monica’s article, you should. It is fascinating and a must read for all Izannahphiles!!!

SOLD – If you have any questions about Lily #2, or would like to welcome her into your doll family, please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com or call 860-355-5709 during business hours. Oops! I almost forgot to mention that shipping is free to any U.S. address and that lay-away is also available. 🙂
