When I brought her home I introduced her to all of the "Smalls" which seem to be my favorite kind of doll because I sure have a lot of them! Here she is with Wendy, Audrey, Anna, Amelia and the tiny little Bendy that Dannielle made. Since Josephine asked about my Smalls a while back, I thought I would share a little information now since the family is growing! This pretty little lady is so dear to me! This is an Edith Flack Ackley made for me by Elaine Jackson in a doll swap we did together. This is the doll that looks like my mother! I love her to pieces and she is so delicately and beautifully made! Here, Hitty Joy is borrowing a dress from another dear Small. This is Anna who was made for me in a swap by Cindy Owens. We were attempting to duplicate the look of peg woodens in fabric. She came with lots of extras too, including the yellow dress! Here's a close up of Anna's pretty face. I wish you could touch her because she feels amazing! Cindy did a beautiful job with the gesso and sandpaper.
Here's one more shot of the girls. The one on the far right is the prototype of the doll I sent to Cindy. This one is Amelia. I want to send her to my grandmother Ann who is a wonderful miniaturist, but I'm not satisfied with her yet.Here's a close up of Amelia's face. I want to do a little embellishing on her dress and then I will send her off. It is already apparent that Hitty Joy is the one in charge of these girls! Not in an obnoxious way, but in a kind, no nonsense sort of way! You see, Anna is beautiful, but she's not very smart. Audrey is too pretty for her own good. She's selfish and vain, you see! Amelia is capable enough, but she knows she is not in her own home so she doesn't feel it's her job to create order. Bendy of course, is just a baby! Hitty Joy has lots of plans for furnishing a home for her sisters and who knows what else? I think I better be ready for anything!
But, I think she better be careful of Yoda who believes that he should always be the center of attention!
