Hitty Pickle - Hand Carved Jointed Wood Doll 6" By A&h:
~~Meet Hitty Pickle~~
Sweet Hitty Pickle is a slender leggy young gal. I’ve named her Pickle because she’s just so cute & yummy that I want to put her on a sandwich and eat her up!! I also can’t help but wonder if Pickle looks different from our previous Hittys? Two weeks ago I realized that my eyesight just was not what it used to be and decided I needed reading/painting/sewing glasses. OH what a dream it was to paint Pickle w/ clear, sharp vision and to not have to work under a tiny magnify glass squinting w/ one eye shut. Little Pickle was hand carved from bass wood by my husband/partner Ae and designed, dressed and painted by me, Holly. I have hand stitched all of Pickle's clothing. She comes dressed in a cute sleeveless top which has Hitty stitched at the top, bloomers, a slip which can go over the bloomers or be worn instead. Her dress is made from a semi-sheer periwinkle fabric and if you look closely at the photos you can see the “Hitty” which is sewn on her under top. Hitty Pickle is a slender waif and measures just over 6” tall. She stands well on her own and sits perfectly too. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me :-) If you’re interested in reading more about us, take a look at the October 2012 issue of Dolls Magazine:
We ship via Registered First Class International mail. The cost is $12 and takes about 14 working days. We can also ship express mail which costs about $30 and takes 4 to 8 working days. Payment is expected w/in 2 days of the sale ending and we will ship w/in two working days. Our dolls come from a smoke free but dog loving home. That said, the poochie bellas are not allowed in the doll studio.
We get a lot of questions about us and our dolls. Ae and I have been collaborating on wood projects since 2004 and started making dolls for other people in 2008. In 2011, my dear friend Janice suggested that Ae and I make Hitty dolls and sell them on . To be honest, I had never heard of Hitty. I Googled a few photos and decided I really wasn’t crazy about that doll and we also weren’t used to making such tiny dolls. Janice convinced me I would at least like the book Hitty, Her First Hundred Years, so I read it. And she was right! I completely fell in love with Hitty. All I wanted to do was make Hitty dolls and take them traveling around the world and tell their tales. So that’s how we got started in the making of little dolls….
