Meet Hester



This is Hester, She will be arriving at Carole's Country store today. She is the third dolly in The Face of the Queen Anne series. I just love how this lady turned out. She is humbly dressed in vintage and antique cottons and she has a pair of antique brown glass eyes.
Hester is not a fancy sort, (but she could be if her husband would let her). She is quite content with the blessings the Lord has given her and has known much joy in her heart. She has been busy planning her Christmas feast for her family, and making little gifts of the heart late at night for her loved one's stockings. She is giggling inside of the thought of their face's when they see what she has made for them.
Merry Christmas Hester!!!!
God Bless everyone!!!!

She may be humbly dressed but she is most delightful.
Christmas would have been a simple celebration during her era... the country young and the promise of a prosperous future lying ahead...

Hi Julie,
Hester is absolutely wonderful, but then all of your art is. I am in awe at all you can do to make these beautiful dolls come alive.
I also wanted to tell you that your sweet little great nieces and that handsome nephew made me smile. They must be a bundle of joy for your whole family.
I just love it when you stop by!
