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!!!!

Three of my great nieces and nephew. Macaiah, Javin, and Nahaila, and lets not forget Mr Piper coming out of the tree!!!!
I just thought I should add to the post a little information about about the wee ones.
Macaiah is just turn one and is not quite sure what I was up to. She is going to be a tall lady when she grows up. The doctors say over six feet. Her brother Javin, who is only three but the size of a second grader will be 6'6'' to 7' feet tall when he is done growing. Then we have Nahaila. She will be two on January first. She is our New Years baby, and is tiny for her age. I think her cousins took all the height. But do not let her little size fool you. This little lady can whip her big cousin Javin at times. You would think they where brother and sister . They are my brother's grand children and oooh what fun they are!!!
Then we have Mr. Piper, who can out last the enegizer bunny any day of the year, and yes he really is coming out of the tree.

Coming to Simply Primitives

Meet Gabby, She is an Angel of the most high and
she will coming to Simply Primitives on the first of November. She is 21'' tall and I think she has a more of a Victorian look than a Queen Anne look. You will have to visit her and let me know what you think.

In the mean time I hope the rest you are having more fall like weather than we are here in my little corner of the earth. We have had nothing but unseasonable cold weather and lots of cloudy and rainy days. We are blessed at times with a sunny day or sunny afternoon from time to time . Our peak season kinda came and went with out enjoying all of its wonderful splendor. The leaves have dropped quickly and we are left with many bare looking trees. Most of my outside work is done, but I need this weekend yet to finish it. According to the weather report Saturday will probably be the best time to get it done.
I am getting ready to settle in for a long winter and so are all the critters. Although the grass really does need to be mowed one more time, I do not think it is going to get done. I think it can wait for spring.
I am hoping all is well with everyone and Many, Many, Blessing to all,

"The Face of the Queen Anne" at Carole's Country Store

I would like to introduce Caroline and Joycelyn. They are the first of a series of dolls I will be offering at Carole's Country store. It was quite humbling for me when Carole asked me if I would be interested in making dolls for her American Artisans Store.

These ladies are a bit more primitive then what I have been offering on my other selling sites. They wear humble cottons and theirs faces and hands are more antiqued and show wear as if they where made hundreds of years ago. I am so pleased on how these ladies turn out, and I humbly present "The Face of the Queen Anne'' Exclusively at Carole's Country Store.

Have a wonderful Autumn evening and many, many Blessing to you all!!!

Simply Willow, Coming to the Simply Primitives
on September 1st.

Meet Willow she is a Queen Anne Style Pumpkin dolly and she is one like no other. She sleeps in a casket during the Autumn season. To find out why you will have to visit her and read her story.

I had a lot of fun taking Willows photo's. We took a walk out to the cemetery through the older section looking for just right spot. I love walking through cemeteries. There is just something about them that I have found out in the last few years that attracts a quite a few people. It is the older stones really that have a particular appeal to me.
I am curious to know how many of you are like me. please leave me a note if you wish and let me know what does or what doesn't attract you to them.

Have a wonderful and Blessed day,

p.s still no computer, but hope to have a new one soon.

Meet Rachal, she will be coming to Simply Primitives on March 15th. I took the spelling of her name from an antique sampler and I think it suits her. She is a primitive Queen Anne style doll and as you can see she has her back side up today. We got in to a little argument over her shoes and she would not cooperate until she got her way. But the lady knows what she likes so I had to give in. I hope you will join Rachal on the 15th, and if you have not checked out Simply Primitives yet, here is the link . Have a wonderful day and God Bless, Julie

Thank You

I want to thank every one for making my first adventure selling the dolls in my shoppe a most successful one. I never dreamed it would have turned out the way it did. I figured I sell a couple of the ladies right away, but I never dreamed they would all sell in a matter of twenty minutes. I would like to Thank all the ladies who are giving my dolls a wonderful new home, and all of you who gave such encouraging words and support. I love making them and I love the fact others love them to. They are made from the deepest part of my heart and though it is not easy to let them go, I know I can't keep them all. It also helps to know that they go to homes where I know they will be loved and cherished. So a big Thank you and lots of love,Julie

Monday, January 5, 2009
