This time a big man in red.
Red plaid kilt and red cashmere scarf and hat.
He has a hunter on his chest. Also a cherub on his shoulder. His toile tattoos are from the same fabric as the last fellow so maybe they are brothers.
This was the last fellow that I finished up before the Providence Show. In the end, he never even made it out of the storage box. That’s the way it goes.
Yes, that is a boar on his chest. With some rabbits above and a lady goddess coming out of his pants!
I bought a bag of mixed buttons last fall and there are lots of good ones to choose from. This button matches his early 1900′s look.
His hair and beard are a black and grey mix.
Ruins on his back-
I am working very hard to get everything into my Etsy shop. I should be done today. Also, I will be working for at least another week so if there is something you want before Christmas, I might have time to make it happen. Send me an email- firstname.lastname@example.org.
I believe this toile is a reproduction from Colonial Williamsburg. It has lots of amazing imagery.
Phew! I am now all caught up! My boxes from California were suppose to show up yesterday but nope. Once they have arrived, I will show what I have available over on Instagram and then start the tedious job of listing everything onto etsy. That will probably take several days. Well, I know what I’ll be doing this next week.
I’m back, the show behind me, and I am going to take it slow for a while. I never finished posting the last dolls. So, here we go, 3 more fellows.
The show was not the best so I have lots of dolls to post into my etsy shop, once my boxes get home. On the positive side, it was great to leave the hot and humid Northeast and spend some time in a cool climate. I will post more about the show in a few days.
And a cow!
Traditional toiles can be so much fun to work with. I love finding the details and making them the focal point of one of my people. We had a sofa with toile slipcovers when I was a kid. I remember my mom pointing out the scenes but all I saw was a mass of red and white. I think I was visually overwhelmed.
Yes, that George.
