A New Custom for a Sweet Little Gal


Hello, hello!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We've had our fair share of snow here in Portland this week, something that only happens... oh, every five years or so... so we've been enjoying lots of sled rides through our neighborhood - collecting icicles and sipping hot cocoa. It's a winter wonderland out there, and it's truly magical to see my children smile and soak it all in.

We finished a special little 10" sweetie this weekend that I'd like to share with you. Customs are just so fun, especially when you know that they reflect the beauty of the child who will soon be their best friend.
Introducing, little Hatice!

Hatice is so excited to meet her new mama!
Hatice has peach skin, light brown sparkly eyes, a big smile, and warm blushed cheeks. She has some custom embroidered birthmarks on her face and leg to match her new mommy, and has long brown hair with some fun twisty hand-spun locks mixed in.

We used a little bit of a darker pink for the birthmark on her inner left leg, to match her mommy's shape and color as best we can with needle & thread. So special to have a wee doll that looks just like you!

Did you know that adding custom birthmarks to your Tansy Doll is always free of charge? Freckles too. Dolls are just as unique as people! Cady, Robin, and I are big fans of: 'if you can dream it, we can do it!'  Because, you know, it's just plain fun too. 
Speaking of fun things to add on dolls, here's the close ups of the beautiful hand-spun twisty locks Cady spun up especially for Hatice:

<3 the look of spun wool!
Well, Miss Hatice is eager to have an adventure and arrive safely in the arms of her new mama. She's all ready for a big hug, arms outstretched. I'm going to have to get in a few more snuggles before I give her a kiss on the cheek and say goodbye.

Thank you for playing with me this week, Hatice!

Have a wonderful week, everyone,
