The World of Pretty Posh Posies!

Welcome to the world of Pretty Posh Posies! These magical little dolls love to play and pretend they are in the circus. Or they dream of candy castles in the land of the Sugar Mountains. And they are always ready to dress up for a fancy ball or soiree.

How do these amazing dolls come to life? The ingredients are paper clay, paint, mohair, felt, vintage fabrics and trimmings, and generous spinklings of glitter and magic posie dust! Each one takes time and patience, but I love creating them all and seeing what they want to be. Of course, they are 100% handmade, and one of a kind.

Below are a few shot of the sculping process to make the arms, legs and heads.

Now I'd like to introduce the first doll of my new Pretty Posh Posies!

Claudette, is the bell of the ball, having been invited to the birthday party of the royal prince of Bon Bon. She has on her best dancing frock, with silver buckles on her shoes and a sparkling silver bracelet. As a final touch she added a large cream colored rose to her hair.

Below you can see her silver bracelet.

And the little silver buckles on her dancing shoes!

Please come back to the Kingdom of Bon Bon,
to meet some more really sweet dolls!
Bye for now!
