Hello everyone! It looks like I picked the perfect day to start my Christmas/holiday doll ensemble release. It’s cold and frosty here in northern Illinois which makes me feel quite festive on this morning. We even had snow flurries yesterday, and the sky looks like it could send us some more today.
Since my 10″ Boneka sculpted by Dianna Effner doll, Rose, is the new girl it seemed appropriate that she should kick off the festivities for 2017.
Rose wears a teeny tiny snowman and pine tree print (a Japanese cotton) dress with French lace trim.
Her embroidered merino wool cardigan is embroidered with classic Christmas colors and clear “icy” seed beads. Her black bead (Czech glass crystals) buttons mimic the snowmen on her dress.
Rose’s hat features a wide “fur” brim. It is in red wool with a Christmas green pom pom. The skinny scarf is also made with the same green wool.
Rose’s ensemble includes Chip (pictured on the left), a needle felted snowman. She has named him Chip because he is always chipper and ready to take part in holiday festivities. Chip wears a tiny hand knit red merino/silk elf hat. The hat’s tassel and his “scarf” are made out of the same yarn as Rose’s scarf and pompom. His features are seed and Delica beads which are carefully sewn on with needle and thread.
Christmas green cotton tights and a red/green “minty” bracelet complete Rose’s new look.
“Frosty Festivities” will be available tonight (November 11, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
Have a great day! Thank you for visiting with me. ❤
