Sleeping Princess Sophie

 Shhhhh.......This little, blue haired, sleeping beauty is Princess Sophie. 
She was so exhausted after a night of festivities with her dear friend Marie-Antoinette that she fell asleep the moment she sat down. Oh! how they danced and laughed the night away!
I bet she's dreaming of all the cute boys they danced with!!

Princess Sophie is an example of what you will receive. She already has a home but there were many other guests at that party!!


The head, hands and feet will be sculpted from a blend of polymer clays then baked over an armature. Then painted with oil paints, acrylics, pastels and washes to give it a natural skin tone. The socks and shoes are painted. Her hand dyed tibetan lambs wool is then applied lock by lock for the hair and then styled. YOU CAN CHOOSE THE HAIR COLOR or I will customize it for you.
The body is sewn out of cotton and her costume is hand made from new, vintage and antique fabric pieces that I have collected. She wears an adornment in her hair. 
The doll's costume is not removable.
Her arms and legs can be gently posed.
She can be displayed as is or on top of a little pillow.
She will arrive with an adorable one of a kind certificate as well.

I put a lot of detail into everything I create. I cannot reproduce my dolls but I can make a similar color combo for you.  

Thanks for visiting me,

New Ornie for ADA Christmas Swap

Here's my little ornament for the Christmas Swap at Art Doll Artists. It's a tiny 2 inch fairy baby in a little nest. It has a ribbon to hang it on a tree or it can lay in its nest. I hope who ever ends up with it enjoys it. For some reason the picture doesn't pick up any of the tiny pearl beads and glitter on it, I really need to stop using my iphone for photos.

Can you believe 2013 is almost gone!! It went by way too fast for me. I hope everyone of you is enjoying the holiday season and not getting too caught up in the hustle and bustle of it all. I wish the seasons in South Florida were a little different (at least fall/winter) so it didn't seem like summer all year long. It gets expensive just turning the a/c down to 65 so I can wrap myself in a cozy blanket and sip a nice hot cup of cider while its 84 degrees outside! If this mood persists I may just have to drive up 10 hours to north Florida to catch some cooler weather before the year ends.
Warm wishes(literally)
