Folk Dolls with Painted Faces

Meet Rosalie Brown and Posie DuPree,These dolls are made from a pattern I made up myself, taking ideas I liked from several different patterns , Then I decided to hand paint the faces so they had lots of personality.

Rosalie is kinda prissy , but she has no shoes, ( only because I couldn't find any little Maryjane's at the thrift stores today) She may get socks and shoes later.

Posie makes me think of a three year old , I think she is my favorite.

(Don't tell Rosalie .)

Sorry , didn't notice the fuzz on her face till after I posted the picture.

I really had fun with these two and will probably make more dolls with painted faces.

Do you like them ?

I am going to link with Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday

  2. Hi Sharon! Thanks for stopping by to comment on my blog :)
    Guess what? My grandma Delsie lives in Harrison, AR. Such a cute little town. I haven't been there in a long time as it's a long drive from NE.
    I like your dollies here, too. Cute!

  3. Love them!
    Such personalities!
    Your so good at faces...very hard to do I think.
