If you are not familiar with the Queen Anne wooden dolls, mind here is what I know. The majority of dolls found today were manufactured in 1850 on. Dolls representing adults from the 17th and 18th centuries were rarely found. Most of the very early dolls were made in England by craftsmen who carved the dolls of wood, cialis sale painted their faces and made their costumes. Collectors called these dolls Queen Anne dolls, viagra which is always confusing to me, since Queen Anne’s reign ended in 1714. Queen Anne dolls from this period are extremely rare and can cost from $1500 for an early 19th century one, to well over $20,000 for an 18th century one. I know there are many lovers of the Queen Anne doll, and no wonder. I got to thinking about how I have begun to love them too, but with my “country decorating”, how would they fit into my decor? It was then that I decided to approach Julie Bailey, a doll maker whose dolls I have admired for some time now. I had an idea, I wanted a doll that would look good with my country antiques. I was thrilled when she came up with her “The Face of Queen Anne” series, and I wanted to present to you today in my American Artisan Store.

Julie is from a little town called Arena, Wisconsin. She lives on a farm near the Wisconsin River. She lives in the farmhouse she grew up in. She lives on this farm along with 62 cats, 4 horses, 4 dogs, and several goats. Julie is one of those beautiful caring people who rescues animals and gives them a temporary home. She uses the money she makes from her dolls to help care for these animals. She has spent the last 18 years perfecting her doll art. In my opinion, she has most certainly reached her goal! Her dolls are absolute perfection, and I am proud to have her has an American Artisan. Joycelyn and Caroline,the first two dolls in her Face of the Queen Anne series, and they are now available in the American Artisan Store. Welcome, Julie!

HAPPY DAY

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
