 Hello!! by petit gosset

Hello!! by petit gosset

May-Elise is a natural fiber art doll, a little over 18" tall. She was made with Swiss cotton interlock and stuffed very firmly with wool. Her hair was made of beautiful, silky-soft Suri alpaca locks, that were combed, washed, dyed with black tea, sewn into wefts, and then crocheted into a wool cap. Her hair is very fragile and should be styled with fingers only (no brush). Her face was sculpted with needle felting technique, brown eyes - embroidered, light freckles - hand-painted, and cheeks - blushed with beeswax.

Blanche - the Girl who Loves Horses

Any takers for an early morning ride on horseback? Galloping across vast fields when they’re still covered with droplets of dew. Feeling the force of the wind against my face. And leaning close to the back of my dear horse and hearing its deep breathing...that’s what I call a day well begun. Oh, I forgot to present myself! I’m Blanche. Evidently, when my mother first saw my light-colored hair and sky-blue eyes, she decided that I was going to be one of those sweet homebodies. Maybe even a little cupid of sorts. But she soon discovered just how different I was and how bright of an adventure spark I had in my eye! The name stuck though. And I’ve even decided to continue the tradition and name my high-spirited mare Blanche 1. That’s how much I like it!

I was born not too tall, just above 18”. My mother used Swiss cotton and beautifully-smelling wool to make my body strong and flexible, which enables me to be more secure in the saddle.
I have long blond hair crafted of silky soft goat locks. I'm wearing a  peasant shirt made of liberty print, a pair of wide, lined silk pants, a hand-knitted merino wool/silk cardigan, and a pair of mohair/silk shoes . Oh, and I love my alpaca beret, which helps keep down my unruly hair!

Blanche is recommended for a child 6+ or an adult collector and will be available for purchase tomorrow, October 1st, at 7pm EST. Please visit the store to check her out!

Inspired by the French countryside...

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else.  Most people in the city rush around, so they have no time to look at a flower.  I want them to see
it whether they want to or not."   
-  Georgia O'Keeffe

This beautiful set is made of Italian linen mesh and gorgeous semi-sheer Swiss cotton voile. The intricate details, such as the ruffle collar, the delicate silk embroidery, and lovely handmade buttons, define this ultra-feminine look. The little hat with a linen bow adds the finishing touch to this outfit. 

The outfit will look lovely on a 16-18" doll.

This set consists of a pin-tuck dress, made of very light Italian linen and fine cotton lace, a cardigan, hand-knitted with a blend of undyed baby alpaca and mulberry silk, and a pair of cashmere/silk crocheted mary-janes. The dress pocket with a sophisticated silk embroidery might remind you of an apron and be used for holding little treasures found in the garden. 

This set will fit an18-20 doll.

Both outfits will be offered for sale in my store on Saturday, May 16 at 12 pm EST.
