This year I had great fun creating an old-fashioned cotton batting ornament as shown above left as a hanging ornament. She is a limited edition of only 25. Just under 4" tall to the tip of her party hat, she has a molded head from my own original mold and is decked out in ruched vintage rayon ribbon and some crystal rhinestones (now that was a learning experience) as bling on her ruffled netting collar. I debated about color, but the old whites, hand dyed by us here won the day. She has painted wooden wings to prove that even snow people can be angels. She may be ordered either as a hanging ornament with a silk ribbon loop or a painted wooden stand (see photo above right). The first edition of 25 are sold out. I will be doing a second smaller edition (12) in January. If you order now, a deposit of $30 will be charged.

My newest nursery rhyme characters are the well known Jack and Jill. The two-doll set comes on a wooden stand and both are holding a tiny red pail. The inspiration for their clothing was taken from paintings by Kate Greenaway with most of the fabrics and trims specially hand dyed here in my workshop to get the look. Like all the other dolls in this Tiny Doll Series, these too are 3.5" tall. This set, unlike the others, will be limited in number to 24 total. $435 for the set on their stand. Add to Cart


For this tiny doll in the series celebrating holidays, I chose an angel. Over all the years of my dollmaking, angels have always played an important role. This one is the tiniest of all. Like the other Tiny Dolls in the Nursery Rhyme and Fairy Tale Series and the Holiday Series, this angel is 3.5" tall with the same basic look and construction as the very first one (Little Red Riding Hood) with posable arms and legs on a papier mache molded head and body from my own molds. She wears a hand-dyed gown trimmed in tucks and imported lace, undies underneath include a lace trimmed slip and pantalets. Her wings, guilded halo and her banner are all of painted wood. Halo is securely pegged. Her price is $235 including stand. If you prefer, you may order her with a hanging loop in place of the stand.

A sample illustration by Kate Greenaway

Due to so many requests, I will do yet another doll for 2023. Since I have loved the works of Kate Greenaway, the inspiration for this next doll comes from her many charming illustrations of children. Oh, the pinafores and bonnets. So the photos above are the final results. Her price is $235 and includes her stand. Every year I fill the first 50 orders that will go before the holidays and most of these places are taken by a list of people who got one each year for over 20 years. The remaining spaces on the pre-Christmas list go to orders on a first come basis. There are 2 places left on the pre-Christmas List. Orders received after this point on will be placed on the late January delivery and will be charged a deposit of $75 with the balance at shipping.

New 12 Inch Queen Anne Kit
My older 10" and then the 12" Wooden Queen Anne kits have long been sold out. But people keep asking. Although I can no longer tie up my dwindling time and resources on more labor intensive wooden dolls, I do recognize that most people are mainly interested in the costuming of this iconic doll. To make it possible to provide such a doll kit, the new doll will have a papier mache molded head and torso with separate but not jointed molded legs. To maintain the image of real wooden ones, her arms will be wood which need easy refinement using a simple X-Acto knife. Kits will have simple flat hands with separate fingers or special arms with 3-dimensional thumbs for the adventurous will be available. Arms were traditionally made with cloth upper arms attached to the bodies, so that once the doll is dressed, she (or he) will look exactly like my old all wood body versions. The kit will include all necessary supplies for the doll and her mohair wig, printed patterns for all outfits listed below and a CD with volumes of historical information plus instructions for the doll, clothing and accessories. Dolls may be made female or male.

• Caps, Hats & Other Accessories
• The Many Variations of Gowns
• Undergarments of the Day
• The Gentleman

THIS IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE PRE-ORDER OF THIS NEW KIT AVAILABLE BY DECEMBER 2023. The total price will be $178 and you can get on the list for this kit with a 1/3 payment (deposit) of $60. We will schedule a second payment in November and the final balance plus shipping will be charged at shipping in December. 1/3 pymt $60 Add to Cart

Hittys Tea Party Set with 3 Dolls Teaset and Furniture
Set includes 2 regular size Hittys in spindle chairs, Tiny 3" Hitty in high chair, table with tea set and large size braided rug.


I have always through all the years of dollmaking made various versions of dolls having a tea party and one even with only bears. All of the tea parties began from an illustration by Tasha Tudor first discovered in 1980. I even won a prestigious award for the first set which was for my 8" porcelain dolls, then eventually I used the same theme for Hitty.

I sold many Hitty Tea Party sets (see bottom photo at left) until my potter friend who made the tea sets moved away and was no longer in business. I spent a few years trying to find another potter willing to make these sets for me again to no avail. Finally good fortune. My original potter friend came back to this area and set up a new studio.

These are not mass produced pieces made overseas in molds but individually hand thrown on a potter's wheel, with the slight imperfections of hand thrown pottery. Sized just for Hitty (a bit bigger than doll house scale, so another reason sets were impossible to find) with the tea pot about 5/8" tall and cups only 3/8" in their tiny saucers. Since I am a lover and collector of vintage yellow ware, I wanted the same look. Each set has 11 pieces including separate lids for the sugar bowl and tea pot, plus 3 sets of cups and saucers. I send along artist's wax to secure lids and cups and to where ever they will be displayed. $110 per set. Add to Cart

Sorry, due to the numbers of orders and the limited production, you may be placed on the waiting list for the next batch. If that happens I will let you know and change your Cart from $110 to a deposit of $20. We will let you know the wait time.


Most of these tiny doll accessories are not new, just the rabbit and goose pulltoys in the front row of the photo. Everything is about 1" tall except the spoolrack, slate, peg wooden and printed cat which are under 2". I find doll settings need these tiny touches. Also a great accessories for Hitty collections.

In this past year's R John Wright Convention Workshops I did a series of 3 dolls - Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel - for his theme of Fairy Tales. I borrowed my Tiny Dolls basic look and construction for these tiny dolls, adding posable arms and legs to the bodies. She is dressed in her red cape, 2-piece dress and apron with pantalets under where you can see her red shoes peeking out and carries her tiniest of baskets. Includes her stand. Sorry, these are not available as kits. $225 Add to Cart



This well known duo are also available as a set and come with their stands. Like Little Red Riding Hood above, these too have posable arms and legs. Gretel has her day cap and Hansel his own cap and leather-like suspenders. $375 for the pair Add to Cart

THE NEXT DOLL IN THE SERIES: For those collecting this series, Little Miss Muffet is now in production. She, of course, comes sitting on her stuffed tuffet eating her curds and whey from a wooden bowl with a hand carved wooden spoon - just her size, which I can tell you is very small. The odious spider, embroidered, is stealthily crawling up the tuffet.
She is $235. Add to Cart

DICK AND JANE READERS - These tiny books began as an accessory to a doll I did for a convention souvenir with a 1950's theme, but are now available as stand alone doll accessories and have delightful tiny reproductions inside from actual Dick and Jane series books. Since I was in first grade in 1956, these very books were part of my own beginnings in reading, so I chose to make these little hand bound books for that reason and inside I tell the history of how these readers came to be the standard for learning to read for many decades. Size is 1-3/4" x 2-1/4" $24 Add to Cart
GinnyPaperDoll NEW

This cat is not new, but such a popular and cute tiny item that I am keeping it here. A perfect accessory for Hitty is this very tiny (1.5" tall) printed cloth cat taken from an antique unsewn cat by the Arnold Printworks Patented 1892. These printed cats and other animals and dolls were very popular for the home sewer who was to sew up and stuff these printed treasures for playthings long ago. GW has reworked the original artwork for this very easy kit or a delightful addition finished for your Hitty.

NEW CHEEK PAINT AND BRUSH SET - The answer to your prayers for perfect cheeks

Use acrylics for all other painting, but use alkyd oils for at least cheeks for better, easier cheeks. If you will be using these paints soon after receipt, the best way to paint cheeks fairly effortlessly is with alkyd oils (fast drying oils). Oils allow you to easily feather out the edges using a dry brush and virtually no paint on your brush. Clean up with turpentine or turp substitute. You can then seal with varnish (recommended is Mod Podge Matte) and antique as usual. Included with the set of three colors in small paint pots (Titanium White, Cadmium Red Deep, and Burnt Sienna) are a concealer brush, a brush point Fantastik Paint Stick for blending or cheeks on tiny dolls, a foam Q-tip, and basic instructions.
