Coming to TDIPT May 15th............



I hope you will stop by The TDIPT Mercantile on the 15th May to see the new dollys and wonderful Primitives there from so many talented artists! My Little Mollye Pickett will be there....
along with one of my Grande Dames, Frau Milla Goethe, my biggest dollye ever! She stands 31" tall, (a bit over that on her stand), and is a reproduction of a c1825 German Mache Beidermier Ladye Doll.
She has very intricate sculpted mache hair in the popular 'Apollo Knott' of the era, and is dressed entirely in antique textiles. She wears 3 strands olde natural coral beads around her neck, and has inset antique brown glass eyes~ Doesn't she just look so happy! Hope to see you there!

*** photobucket wont let me add my usual slideshow of closeup views, so they are allready listed on my alternate blog, http://diamondkfolkart.blogspot.com/ *******

Oh my goodness, but she is incredible! I think she may be my very favorite of all of the dolls I've ever seen of yours. She is absolutely remarkable!

I of course was so carried away by the magnificence of Frau Milla Goethe, that I neglected to point out how CUTE your baby girl is! Is this one Pip? I love that adorable name.
