~Valentine Angel~

Here is my first dollie of the year! I think she turned out so very sweet...Meet "Fancy", that is her name. She is a very sweet dollie and I am very please with how she turned out. She is one one of my larger dollies and measures almost 24 inches tall...
Her face is fully hand painted and then sealed. Her roses on her dress and on her halo, so very pretty, she has crystals in the center. Here dress is finished with some ribbon, all hand stitched in place.

Here halo is only pinned in place, with a glass glitted decorative pin...embellieshed with some more roses, leaves and vintage style tinsel garland. Her wings are feathers and are secured in place, here hair is wool from Crowing About Primitives, that is all needle felted in place....
Lots of detail on Fancy...I made for her some "Valentine Pretties", made of printed vintage images, double backed for durablitly and finished with ribbon, glitter ane such. I made loops and then strung them onto real vintage trim. They are removeable and then you can have Fancy for Christmas as well...I would leave her out all year long *smirk*

Her shoes are trimmed with hand stitched on trim. Lots of hours into the sweet gal. I am aiming to list her for this evening on ebay. I hope you enjoyed seeing my first piece of the year. Did you look closely into her eye's? I wanted to make a dollie with less detail, but it just was not in me. I must go, my work area looks like a tornado touched down. Have a great day. Ta-ta for now, ~Tonya

Such a sweet face. Who wouldn't love to have her. She reminds me of someone but can't put my finger on it yet. Very pretty indeed my friend. Your dolls ALWAYS have soo much more to them than one expects.
Hugs,Pea

Hi Tonya,
She is just awesome!! You do such wonderful work on all of your creations. As always...I love them!!
I know what you mean by looking like a tornado touched down in your work room. I had mine cleaned up and I started working on some stuff this week and it is now all messed up.
Hope you're having a great day.
