Adelaide – A Sweet Valentine Angel in Pale Shades

AdelaideHeadToToe

This little girl is Adelaide. Adelaide is a special angel. She brings with her Love & can be displayed in your home throughout the year. She is my original design & has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She measures 14.5″ tall from head to toe. She’s been painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display. Adelaide can sit only with assistance. She has a hemp loop attached to her back for hanging. Her knees have been sewn through, making her a perfect shelf sitter.

Adelaide’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand giving her a perfect pout.

Adelaide’s blouse is made of white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline. It is finished off with a vintage, grey, mother of pearl button. Adelaide’s skirt is sumptuous! It is made of nubby, soft 100% natural linen. If you love texture & natural colors–this doll is so suitable for you!

AdelaideHeart

Adelaide’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She sports brown, painted boots with tan socks & heavily detailed taupe laces. Her heart has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. It’s been painted, sanded, aged & detailed. Love has been written in black ink, on taupe cardstock & attached to the fabric heart with two tiny vintage mother of pearl buttons. The heart is attached to hemp string. It can be removed & stored so that you can display this lovely angel all year!

AdelaideWings

Adelaide’s wings are 9.5″ wide. They’ve been made of muslin, machine-quilted, painted, sanded & aged a couple of times. I added vintage-style glass glitter to both the front & back of the wings. They’re attached to Adelaide with several strands of heavy duty button thread & a vintage button.

Adelaide will be available on eBay Jan. 4th at 9:15 PM EST. She will end Jan. 11th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid on this little lady.
