Ginger Sugar and spice!

I have been making dolls and doing this kind of work for over 25 yrs. I have made a million dolls and have learned and changed my style a hundred and 20 times. I have made alot of dolls that I like and once in a while I make a doll I love. This doll is by far my favorite for the whole year. Which is so strange if you knew me. I love girly but am not girly. I like pink and white but don't decorate with it. So out of my norm and yet it is that face that captured my heart. She was a special order for a dear customer and I know when she sees her upclose and personal she will love her as much as I do.

The pictures make her look a bit dark but she is a cinnamon brown color like real gingerbread. I used a cookie to match the color.

Each part of her dress was planned very carefully. I thought of ginger bread houses as I made her. The laces are to look like frosting and the sugar tinsil trim was made to look like sugar.

I also made her little wool shoes and a tiny bucket for her candy. Just so durn sweet. Now I am getting in a mood for the Christmas season.

I do hope that you all have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving with your family. I will be enjoying time with family and then celebrate again on Friday when My Jake returns. I think I can suffer through turkey and pumpkin pie twice. LOL YUMM YUMM.

Blessings to you and yours,Pea

Isn't she so very sweet Pea. Love her and all of the detail you put into her.

Pinks and creams are definately fun to make. I have been bitten by the pink bug lately. LOL

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.
