Hello everyone! I want you to meet Victoria Rose she is my latest Valentine's doll. She is made of osnaburg muslin fabreic that I painted with acrylic paint, sanded and distressed to give her that antique, age look. She has a Victorian appearance and is named after my soon to be 3 year old daughter. Victoria Rose's skirt and ruffles are hand sewn and left with a raggedy edge. Her legs are securely attached to the body with baby blue ribbons. The buttons on her chest and shoes are antique and are sewn with a heavy thred. Her arms are also securely attached with a heavy thread and then I sewed buttons for decoration. Victoria Rose holds in her hands a small felt pink heart. Victoria Rose is about 18 inches tall and she is on my etsy store.

Valentina Bird is a doll that took me a few weeks to make. The doll started with the bird cage that she is set on. I knew that I wanted to make something with birds and also wanted to make an art doll different from what I usually do. So I found these 2 little birds, and here she is. She is hand painted with acrylics and fabric markers. I also painted her with sparkle glaze to protect her. Her skirt is made with a vintage fabric. The hat, the ribbon, and skirt are hand sewn. Her hair is made with natural wool that has been glue and needle felted to her head. She is about 14.5 inches tall
