Welcome To My World!

I am so happy that you have stopped by for a visit!

It is here that I will try to share with you my creations, a bit of my home, my gardens and what inspires me.

Periodically, I will feature those dolls and creations that are available for purchase on my other blog:

Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale

Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale is a 22 inch tall fabric doll. She is a born traveler, always ready for a new adventure.
Alas, she does not travel lightly!
She has an antique trunk, her antique traveling bag, and of, course her hat box, made from a vintage basket. She is wearing a jacket made from fine antique wool.
Her skirt is antique silk. It has a few frayed edges on the bottom of the hem ruffle ... I kept them toward the back of the skirt.
Her hat is also vintage.

Her face is needle sculpted and painted.

Her hair is soft curly wool.

She comes with a stand but can also sit.

Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale is now SOLD. Thank you!

This is my very first post and other dolls will be added in the weeks to come.

Please check back to see more from Evi's Country Snippets!

Thank you!
