Meet Abigail

My latest creation, Abigail,
is inspired by wooden dolls
of the early 1800's.

She is made from a furniture
finial with paperclay additions.
She is mounted on an antique
rolling pin which is then mounted
on a dowel and stand.

I've designed her so that the dress
and arms of the doll are removable,
so she can be presented as a primitive
figure or as a wooden inspired doll.

She is painted with many washes of
quality artist's paints, and is scuffed
and sanded here and there to give
her an aged appearance.

Her dress is made from a wonderful
reproduction fabric. I think Abigail
would look wonderful in a home
all year long, but especially during
this holiday season.

Click on any of the pictures
to go to the Northdixie Mercantile,
where she can be purchased.

Merry Christmas!
