Meet Lolita!

Come visit, say hello to her! She loves company!


Lolita is my newest primitive angel doll. She is a winter snow angel....


I wanted to name her Noelle. But she insisted on a hot name like Lolita.



 I love gathering and planning all the tiny details that go into a doll like this....


It can take me years to find just the perfect somethings that will bring my dolly to life...
Here are her tiny underclothes---a white baby t-shirt chemise and vintage net and lace panties....


Here she is wearing them...and her teeny-tiny lace trimmed socks:


This is her sweater---a handknit vintage baby sweater, so perfect! And her mittens, fluffy marabou feathered scarf, and crystal wire halo...



This is the bodice of her dress...remnants of a recycled Victorian nightgown. The long white dimity skirt has handmade lace inserts. It was once an apron.


And her little white ice skates, of course.


Here she is..Lolita! All dressed up for the Christmas ice skating party, tonight at the pond....


And here she is with her dear friend Grace...


and their best friend Honesty Jane....


All my angels are available in my etsy shop. Come visit!

enjoy!

love
