Eve's black sister

I wanted to create a sister for Eve,(see 2 posts prior to see a pic of her) so while browsing
through my folder of "faces" (faces I've compiled, find interesting and hope to draw or paint someday), I was inspired by this particular face and she happened to be black. Eve is thrilled to have a black sister!
Her hair is a touch unruly but I'm kinda liking it that way so it may just stay as is.
We need a name now... any ideas???
Thanks for stopping by!

~ Good-byes ~

This 18" Izannah is a special order I just finished up and saying my "good-byes" to.
I just loved the vintage dotted swiss fabric used in the dress. If you haven't already, you must check out the pictures of authentic Izannah Walker dolls taken from the Stong Museum.
Dixie took these and has generously shared them here ----- but be warned... you too
shall fall under their spell, lol.

And I've decided to put this little one up for adoption on Ebay... click here to see if you'd like..

Hold on to your hats!

Finally finished up a couple of lasses and wanted to share.

Remember the doll that couldn't decide on hair or not? Well she decided she
wanted hair, but in a lighter shade. She got her wish, and a lovely straw hat to top it off.
I've named her "Eve".
She is quite pleased with herself, can't you tell by that expression?
She will be listed this evening on Ebay.

And ya know I just had to make a couple more Itty Izannah Walker style dollies... These will be going up for adoption on my "Picture Trail" on Aug. 5 Click HERE if interested in purchasing one

I sure hope everyone is having as much fun in the sun this summer as I am!!
Thanks to a generous sister and Brother-in-Law who
own a condo at Lake Michingan. I am so blessed!
