Mathilda ~ a little bit of history ;)

In this photo, the focal point is of course, the box.. As that is what the photograph is about.. However I thought I would point out a couple of details just for fun :)

This doll, Mathilda, was named after my great grandmother, Mathilda.. And she is the woman in the photograph on the left.
Her daughter, Lorraine (my grandmother) was my inspiration for the dress style which some of you may already know as my "Lorriane dresses" and that is the dress that I made for Mathilda (the doll)...
The medium format camera in this photo belonged to my grandmother Lorraine. She passed away less than a year ago and is dearly missed. She, like my mother, my sister, and myself, was an artist..... She was also a very intelligent and strong willed woman.. I can find much inspiration when I think of her and I did when I created this doll, Mathilda.
I just wanted to share, as I realize that no one would know the significance of this photograph (or this doll) unless I pointed it out ;)

Mathilda ~ Melacacia OOAK Custom Blythe #94

While sifting through old items in the attic of your great grandmother's turn of the century home, you hear a thump in the corner of the room.
As you get up, you hear it again and follow the sound to a small wooden box sitting on top of an antique dresser.
Brushing away the cobwebs and dust, you see an image of a doll affixed to the top of the box with the name Mathilda above it.
Mathilda, that was your great grandmother's name.
With trembling fingers, you open the box slowly, as if in a trance.
Instantly struck by her human-like beauty, you see a magnifinent doll who appears to be sleeping in her cozy little box.
You pick her up gently and her eyes blink open. She looks at you and you can not stop staring into her eyes, it's as if she can see into your soul.
Have we met before in a dream? you wonder... Holding her close to your heart, as your great grandmother once did, you know this doll will once again be treasured.

Mathilda and her special wooden box :)

I created this box using an antique chest that belonged to my grandmother as
my inspiration.
The original box was unfinished, so I distressed it using a hammer and a knife
and then I stained it before adding the photos, etc.
It is a nice little wooden box and I thoroughly enjoyed creating it especially for
this doll.
I hope you love it as much as I do :)

Although I am not taking commissions, I couldn't turn down the chance for a custom dolly trade with my talented friend, Amy (Zaloa). So, here is the girl that I created for her.
Amy did the reroot using that beautiful pink mohair shown in the photo... She will reveal this girl as a whole once she is home. Can't wait to see her all put together! :)

Hiding in the dress box ^__^

As I continue to work on my own projects, I am going to make an effort to get a few dresses and eye chips listed in my Etsy shop as often as I can... Hopefully about once a week or so I will have something in my shop for you guys :)

Thank you for all of the custom requests, and I am sorry that I am not able to do it all at this time. I appreciate you all so much!
