W.E.L.C.O.M.E
to all of my ‘New Friends’…………..

T.H.A.N.K Y.O.U
to my ‘Friends of Old’ for your continued support and wonderful comments…………..!!

Finally, and by no means least……. I thought I’d share with you a picture of my gorgeous son Christian… (13)

Its one of the few ‘recent’ pictures I have of him, because he hates having his picture taken…

{unlike someone else who shall remain nameless………….}

….Anyway, this one was taken while he was sleeping in the back of the car with his ipod on…….

My Living Doll……………………..

June 28th, 2010

I wanted to share with you some more pictures of my little Beckie Boo.

They were taken at a professional modelling shoot last month, I think you will agree she really is quite gorgeous………………..

I wouldn’t change a thing about her,
she really is ‘My Living Doll’ made with love & care………!

…………Of course I see her through rose-tinted glasses…………

(…………and perhaps I’m a little biased too…………)

Oh but she really is quite GORGEOUS both inside and out!!

Special Commission……………..

June 26th, 2010

I thought I would share with you a recently completed
special commission………..

She has specially hand-sculpted legs in a cross-legged position, her arms are also sculpted especially to show off the pretty ‘puff’ of her sleeve. Wearing a tartan dress with tiny English smocking known as a ‘surface honeycomb’ stitch…. quite a difficult technique to perform on a piece of fabric only 1 cm deep.

Underneath she wears a white pretty petticoat and matching knickers, both trimmed with lace and bows. She wears pretty painted leather red Mary-Jane shoes and sweet little ankle socks complete her ensemble. All seams are hand-sewn.

If you would like to place a special order for her, please do not hesitate to e-mail me, by clicking the link below:-

Take a Chair…………

June 2nd, 2010

I love chairs… I think it may be my one weakness……………..!
I purchased this one a few years ago with a view to reupholstering it.

But, alas, it’s sat in a corner… collecting dust… while I’ve tried and tried…………… to decide what to do with it…………………………… a little gilding perhaps……………… or maybe I could paint it black or cream………………….. hmm decisions, decisions……………….
what would you do with it……………….?
