Long Face Jumeau “Springtime Beauty”

Long face Jumeau springtime beauty

Good morning …….. and what an incredible gorgeous morning it is!     It’s a beautiful day today in Texas…….The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky……and speaking of sky,.. it’s a deep blue…………rarely do we get to see the sky so clear…..but after all the rain we had last week…..it seems to have cleaned the air……the pond is over flowing….again…. the grass has turned green overnight….and the birds……are  singing their songs…….

Oh how I love this time of year!!…….

Today I’m sharing my Springtime Beauty …..and she is a beauty indeed….She’s my  “Long Face Jumeau”….. a French Antique Reproduction Doll…..isn’t she breathtaking……

The winter is past and gone……the season of singing has come!

Her body is 19 inches tall….making her the largest doll I have made so far….

How do you like her hair do?….We have a small piece of hair pinned on her head to help us decide what color we want for her hair and bonnet………

Love her slip with all the dainty lace and ribbon….

Can’t wait to get her all dressed….see the pink fabric on the table….that’s for her dress…….

Me and Mama Betty finally finished Coco!!!  I posted some pictures of her earlier last year with no hair, no clothes just her pretty blue eyes…..At that time I was in the process of learning how to crochet her socks….Well she is all dress now….and absolutely gorgeous….I going to share with you some pictures of the process of getting her dress.  I have so many pictures of this doll I will need to share in 2 different posting.
