Mallory and the giveaway




Here is Mallory and her baby doll. I did this sculpt a while ago and never finished her. She reminds me of a sweet and gentle little girl that has no cares in the world. She takes good care of her dolly and does whatever her mom wants her to do!!!
JK - that sounds too good to be true. Well it is! She is only a doll and you can make up anything when you are the artist!!!
She is one of my larger sculpts - if she were standing she would be about 22" or so. She is dressed in silks - white taffeta on top and pink seersucker for the skirt. The ribbon and roses trim is all silk - love this stuff - I use it often.
The baby doll is another sculpt I have had laying around here. Her top is bought - love finding little stuff I can use. Have you ever tried to sew tiny clothes??
I made her little bloomers to match the skirt. I used some hand-dyed lace and made her hat! Lots of hand sewing went into that!
Her pearl headband is made from Austrian Swarovski pearls. Love them too.
I made her wig out of mohair (that comes from goats - really!). Have you seen auburn colored goats?? It's the newest thing.
Not really.
So now if you comment on Mallory by the end of the day Wednesday August 18th I will do a giveaway to one of you - a full set of greeting cards (my own of course). You can see them on my website: www.sarahniemela.com. If you are the winner you will have to send me your real address when I contact you.
If you are the only one who comments - well, that was easy!

You can take "nothing" and make something so beautiful out of it! I'm soooo impressed! I love Mallory's dolly too!

Lois said...

You are giving her away? Wow.

Brianna B said...

I love how she has a little dolly! She's so cute!

Sarah Niemela said...

Now Lois, you must read a little more carefully - no, I can't give her away quite yet....but I will give away a set of my greeting cards and if you win you can just look at my dolls on them!

Pete and Becky said...

The first time through I also was thinking you were giving the doll away too! Had to go back and read it after seeing your response to Lois. I love your dolls, everyone of them are beautiful!

I'm going to push my luck and try to win...again. I really love Mallory and her little doll! One of these days when I'm rich, I'll own one of your creations.

If I send my children to you, can you make them like Mallory? (Does anything her mom says?) :) Beautiful doll Sarah!

Mom, Dad, Jeremy and Alina said...

Hi Sarah! I hope I win. I already used all the pretty cards you once gave me :) :) Mallory is beautiful, as all of your dolls are. And I can't wait to see you, SOON!
