Presenting Kitty…

July 27th, 2011

Sweet Kitty wears a black blouse and skirt trimmed with white lace
collar and cuffs, tiny buttons finish off the back of her bodice…

Over she wears a crisp white apron
trimmed with frilled edges… and tied in a bow at the back…

Her patent leather lace up boot can be seen popping out just beneath her lace trimmed petticoat…

Kitty’s hair is pinned back from her face, tied in a bun at the back
and tiny tendrils frame her pretty face…

Completing her ensemble is a white
matching lace trimmed headpiece.

Being a Tearoom Assistant, Kitty carries a tray
filled with cakes and goodies…

A Tudor Tale…

July 10th, 2011

This beautiful Tudor House is owned by my very dear client
Elizabeth… and in her own words “is very much a work in progress…”

Elizabeth’s knowledge of the Tudor period is outstanding and
confirmation of this can be seen in the exquisite detail of every room…

I was delighted to be commissioned by Elizabeth to make all of her
dolls, here Ellen can be seen in her bedroom… with her beloved pets.

Even though its far from being finished, Elizabeth really captures the spirit of Tudor lifestyle here in the sparsely furnished living room…

Young Martha has so many pots to wash and lots to organise in time
for cooks much anticipated arrival from visiting relatives…

Thank You Elizabeth for sharing your wonderful
Tudor home and family with us, can’t wait to see updates…!
