Some of you know Edie...a doll I made more than a dozen years ago and was part of an earlier blog and a Travel Doll list. She has been on countless trips with me and has a whole world of her own here in our house. She is a tiny Edith Flack Ackley pattern doll.
I had attempted to make a little twig chair and asked Edie to take a look at it.
She seemed a little perplexed because she is used to her own Depression era wooden furniture and not so interested in primitive or things that look like fairies my land on them.
I convinced her to take a seat so I could figure out if it was a good scale in size. It was and she thought it was very comfortable despite the fact she didn't really like the style. (She also informed me that I used to much hot glue and should be more careful in the future.)
Meanwhile a most wonderful nine inch tall Edith Ackley pattern doll arrived here. She was made by Yolanda Montano who makes wonderful dolls. This doll is named Mignonette. Her dolls made be found for sale here. The workmanship is so lovely and the face is as sweet as can be. Yolanda took this photo...to her credit, these dolls can be very difficult to photograph. Needless to say, she is even prettier in person!
So, the Ackley girls are still very part a much of my life though I frequently forget to include them here. (Angelyn, this post is especially for you!)
Very busy day today so best to get started...but maybe one more cup of coffee first...
enjoy the day!
