Here are my two newest Izannahs. They are sisters, and itty bitty creatures they are. I made them simultaneously, and they refuse to be separated. They're pretty demanding.
They are approximately 5.5 and 6 inches tall.
They have taken some sort of oath of silence and absolutely refuse to tell me their names.
All I really know about them is that they are completely hand made from cloth with hadsculpted paperclay heads (and I only know this because I made them), and are wearing handsewn Civil War reproduction fabric cotton dresses (scraps I had lying in my drawers that I loved too much to throw out), and undergarments made from vintage fabric.
These teensy tots are a little high maintenance...they want a new home with better furniture than my circa 1976 Ideal* cheap plastic Jody Victorian Doll set. Even though I repainted the tacky purple plastic sofa that had lost nearly all of it's 'velvet' flocking for these picky gals, there was a diminutive revolt. Early this morning, I stepped on a straight pin that had been strategically placed in the rug impaled through a tiny note...with little words cut out and pasted on it. They must have gotten into my cabinets and excised the tiny words from various jars and bottles that I need a magnifying glass to read.
You should have seen their list of demands: Wooden four poster bed with quilt AND linens
Table and chair set
China tea set
Preferably... Greek Revival, but Queen Anne will suffice as a second choice.
Are they kidding? Don't they understand the California real estate situation? A Victorian doll house is a huge money pit. Pretty pricey to furnish. Furthermore, if I HAD the money for a Victorian house, I really must insist upon being able to fit inside of it.
How greedy of them. With their champagne appetites on my vintage cheap plastic budget.
I politely informed them that if they don't appreciate the facilities here, they will have to leave. They wholeheartedly agreed.
They are now available on ebay!
