A Christmas for Emily



Emily is ready and waiting for Christmas, all dressed in her best Christmas dress, complete with a pretty red net crinoline underneath.



She's holding a lovely brown felt teddy bear, which is completely jointed with moveable arms and legs,button trim and adorned with a red satin bow.



Her hair is hand styled and composed of brown worsted yarn, and tied into pigtails with torn fabric bows which match her dress.



The dress is made of Tilda Fabrics, 100% cotton in a pretty red and white print, with lace trim around the edge of the skirt, hand gathered to create a ruched and scalloped hemline, which showcases the underskirt.



The neckline is graced with a hand crocheted lace collar and a pretty white pearlized and red button cameo adornment.



She has red and white striped ticking legs and black painted shoes, as well as white onasberg pantaloons beneath her slip.



Her pretty little face is hand blushed with beautiful hand painted blue eyes and black lashes.



Completely hand sewn of superior materials she would make a beautiful decoration and collectable. She is not intended as a play toy.

The asking price is £30.00. Please contact me on MarieAliceJoan at aol dot com if you are interested. Will ship first class, and insured to anywhere in the world upon receipt of payment.

She's lovely. I love her ticking legs. (Mine sometimes look like that if I don't wear my tights outdoors on cold days!!)

I just stumbled upon your blog while adding to my "blog friends". Scrolling down, I was so surprised to see that you are reading "Forever Amber". Just last night, I mentioned it to my daughter-in-law and recommended it. I, too, read it many years ago and, re-read it a few years ago, and might just add it to my book pile for this winter's reading. I look forward to reading more of your writings. I am just in the process of deciding what direction my blog will go in and refining it. With a new computer has come my inability to post photos. I will figure it out.

Oooooooooooooh = I am so sorely tempted. I am, I am. And, like Oscar Wilde, I can resist anything but temptation. She would look just right sitting next to Dolly #1 but that would mean giving her away.............

love, Angie, xx

She's beautiful, Marie! Avery would love her but I wouldn't be able to keep her from playing with her :-) Maybe when she gets a bit older and understands the concept of "just to look at"! Or will you make some that can handle a bit of handling :-)
Hope you are well xoxo

Do you do clothes for American Girl Dolls, Marie? My granddaughter Bailey has gone mad for her American Girl Dolls. I am sure you are familiar with them. I would love to purchase a cute little knitted hat and cardigan for her American Girl doll Emily Bennett (she's British, by they way :). Are you interested? Thank you.

Marie said...

Sorry Anne, I don't knit. I hate to disappoint, but . . . I have always wanted an American Girl doll. It is a dream of mine to one day own one.
