I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

Taking One Day At A Time - A Pair of Victorian Dogs - "Best Dog In Class, Granny Esther!" and "I'm A The Best Papa, Pepper!"


"Best Dog In Class, Granny Esther!" takes life one day at a time and wasn't too concerned about getting an invitation to the "Victorian Animals Tea Society" from "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" She knew that eventually it would come, so why get yourself all in a tither until it does?

When she was younger she may have worried about such things, but aging has mellowed Granny Esther. She much prefers spending her time reading, watching her Grandchildren, sewing, and just plain enjoying life than worrying about memberships to tea societies.

She can understand why "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" set-up their own tea society. She was young once and would of done the same thing. Now, memberships just weren't that important to her. Good health, love of family, love of life. Now those are important issues.

Granny Esther had no doubt that she and her husband, "I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!" would be invited to join as their families had been at the top of the social circle for generations. They were show dogs after all and had well established pedigree lines. The finest of the fine. In fact, Granny Esther had won "Best Dog In Class!" for so long that she had lost count. And, her husband, "I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!" had been Father of the Year for so long he had lost count.

However, both had aged ever so gracefully and time had been kind to them. For that they were grateful. They were both proud of who they were, proud of their families, proud of their friends.

But, they also knew that each and every moment they had together was precious and that there wasn't anything better than a quiet romp in the woods holding each others hand or sitting on the porch enjoying a glass of lemonade. Yes, time had mellowed both "Best Dog In Class, Granny Esther!" and her husband, "I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!"


"Best Dog In Class, Granny Esther!" is a 14" self-standing Victorian dog with a square bottom, brushed felt body and embroidered face. She has black bead eyes, an animal nose, and blushed cheeks. The outline of her mouth is embroidered as are her eyebrows and her granny glasses sit lovingly upon her nose. Her big floppy ears are barely controlled under her lined and matching lace trimmed cap that is adorned with a bow in the front.

Granny Esther has 2 layers of wonderful lace trim along the bottom of her square body and is wearing a multiple layered and lace trimmed and gathered slip. Granny Esther just loves her stylish lace trimmed dress with the dog print. It is gathered at the sleeves with gathered lace trim and straight lace trim layers along the bottom hem. The sleeves are also gathered lace trimmed and straight lace trimmed along the sleeve edges and gathered at the wrist. The neck line of the dress is gathered and adorned with two layers of lace trim and a ribbon bow.

Her velvet vest is lined, has a fold down collar, is adorned with square buttons and tied with ribbon trim. A wonderful crocheted shawl is wrapped around her shoulders and adorned with a silk floral that Granny Esther just loves.

"I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!" also takes life one day at a time and wasn't too concerned either about getting an invitation to the "Victorian Animals Tea Society" from "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" Just like his wife, "Best Dog In Class, Granny Esther!" he knew that eventually it would come, so why get yourself all in a tither until it does?

When he was younger he may have worried about such things, but aging has mellowed him, too. He much prefers a walk in the park, a good crossword puzzle, a warm touch from Granny Esther than worrying about memberships to tea societies. The important things in life are good health, love of family, love of life.

"I'm A The Best Papa, Pepper!" is a 14" self-standing Victorian dog with a square bottom, brushed felt body and embroidered face. He has black bead eyes, an animal nose, and blushed cheeks. The outline of his mouth is embroidered as are his eyebrows. His two-toned face just adds to his overall good looks. His big floppy ears are barely controlled under his lined and coordinated hat.

"I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!" certainly has mellowed with age, but when he's out in public he does still like to look his best. So, he's wearing one of his most complimentary and coordinated suits. His green print shirt is gathered at the neck and his felt vest with lapels overlaps in front and is adorned with a button.

He is wearing a lace trimmed ascot that matches the lining of his coat. His coat is lined and is top stitched along the front band with brown DMC embroidery floss. The front band is held back with two large buttons and his sleeves are cuffed.

Yes, all in all "I'm The Best Papa, Pepper!" is well dressed.

Moose On The Dance Floor! - "Moose Me Victorian" and "Moose Me A Dance!" - Victorian Moose Dolls

"Moose Me Victorian!" really didn't want to have anything to do with the "Victoriana High Society Tea Club" but when his friend "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" invited him - well, how could he say no.

"Moose Me Victorian!" was a Victorian moose but he considered himself every bit the man's man. Hunting was in his blood and had been for generations. In fact, he excelled at marksmanship and had won the county title several years in a row.

But, his friend "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" had asked him and he was as loyal as they come and blood brothers with Ryan. So, how could he say no. He couldn't.

You see, "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" had decided to start their own "Victorian Animals Tea Society" for all their wonderful Victorian animal friends because they had been turned down for membership into the posh "Victoriana High Society Tea Club." Their club would truly have an open membership and be accepting of all individuals and creatures. None of this "open to all", but really closed to animals rules. So what if Ryan and Deb were bears. They were still Victorian to the core. In fact, their lineage was probably older then some of the snooty Victorians who turned down their membership application.

So, the "Victorian Animals Tea Society" was born and "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" asked his friend "Moose Me Victorian!" to join. He also invited "Moose Me Victorian's" sister, "Moose Me A dance!" to join as well. His wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" had asked him to so he did.

"Moose Me Victorian" knew that his sister, "Moose Me A Dance!" would be thrilled with the invitation. Why, she'd be ecstatic and be daydreaming of all the high society balls she would be attending. Not to mention all the wonderful ball gowns she'd have to buy. Oh, yes! "Moose Me A Dance!" would be beside herself with anticipation.

"Moose Me Victorian!" wishes his sister, "Moose Me A Dance!" was as good at her marksmanship as she was on the dance floor. She could twirl and twirl and twirl and never loose her footing. She was graceful and every bit as elegant as she needed to be.


"Moose Me Victorian!" is wearing a flannel shirt which is gathered at the neck. He is also wearing a gray wool vest that matches his gray wool jacket and which is lined with the same fabric as his gray wool jacket. His vest is top stitched and fastened in front with a button.

His lace trimmed ascot also matches the lining of his gray wool vest and gray wool jacket. He is wearing a lined gray wool jacket with a lined collar and lapels. His jacket is top stitched and fastens with a large gray button in the front.

"Moose Me Victorian!" knows fully well that he can walk and talk Victorian with the best of the Victorian gentleman. However, he much prefers the company of his hunting buddies and while he may be dancing on the dance floor his mind will be elsewhere.

"Moose Me A Dance!" knows that her brother, "Moose Me Victorian!" really didn't want to have anything to do with joining the "Victoriana High Society Tea Club." But, she knew that he would do it for her. He knew how much she just loves to dance and would never turn down an opportunity for her to do so.

So, when his friend "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" invited him - well, how could he say no. Plus, he knew it would hurt his sister so he had no choice. It was the right thing to do for his friend and for his sister.



"Moose Me A Dance!" is a self standing doll with a square bottom and brushed felt body. She has black bead eyes and a black satin stitched nose. Her mouth is embroidered with DMC embroidery floss and her ears and cheeks are blushed.

Her huge antlers sit daintily upon her head. That is, as dainty as antlers can be! Her cap is lined and lace trimmed and matches her dress. A silk floral adorns the front of her cap while a ribbon bow adorns the back.

"Moose Me A Dance!" has a layer of wonderful lace trim along the bottom of her square body and is wearing a lace trimmed and gathered lace trimmed slip. Her beautiful coordinating ensemble is the latest in Victorian fashion. Her dress came straight from Paris from the finest of designers. Nothing shabby for "Moose Me Victorian!

She is wearing a dress trimmed with 2 layers of gathered lace and one layer of straight lace along the bottom hem. One layer of gathered lace trim and one layer of straight lace trim adorn her sleeves which are gathered at the wrist. Her dress is gathered at the neck which is adorned with 4 layers of gathered lace trim and adorned with a ribbon bow in the front. "Moose Me A Dance!" is also wearing a lined velvet vest that is lace trimmed along the front, back, and bottom edges and is tied with a ribbon and buttons. Her outfit is finished with a print embroidered handkerchief for a shawl.

"Moose Me Victorian!" knows that her brother did this for her. She also knows that he can walk and talk Victorian with the best of the Victorian gentleman and while he much prefers the company of his hunting buddies he's a right fine dancer. He can waltz and twirl with the best of them.

A Sleek But Refined Husband and Wife - "Come Here William Augustus" and "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" - Victorian Cat Dolls

"I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" could hardly wait to tell her husband, "Come Here, William Augustus!" that they had gotten the much anticipated email from "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!"

You see, "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" had decided to start their own "Victorian Animals Tea Society" for all their wonderful Victorian animal friends because they had been turned down for membership into the posh "Victoriana High Society Tea Club."

Their club would truly have an open membership and be accepting of all individuals and creatures. None of this "open to all", but really closed to animals rules. So what if Ryan and Deb were bears. They were still Victorian to the core. In fact, their lineage was probably older then some of the snooty Victorians who turned down their membership application. So, the "Victorian Animals Tea Society" was born and "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" was anxiously awaiting her membership email.

She had no doubt that she and her husband, "Come Here, William Augustus!" would be invited to join as their families had been at the top of the social circle for generations. They were, cats, after all and highly prized for their poise, elegance, tenacity, and grace.


In fact, "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" had won the grace competition every year since she was 7 years old. She could jump with such refined elegance that it simply took your breath away. So easy. So smooth. So light as air.

And, her husband "Come Here, William Augustus!" was as refined and dignified a gentleman cat as there ever was one. He moved with the sleekness of a fine tuned leopard. He could be right behind you and you wouldn't even notice it. And, his manners. Well, they didn't get any more dignified than William Augustus.

"I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" is a 12" self-standing Victorian cat with a square bottom, brushed suede body and embroidered face. She has black bead eyes, a felt animal nose, and blushed cheeks. The outline of her mouth is embroidered as are her eyebrows and eyelashes.

Her ears are slightly blushed and she has black DMC Embroidery floss whiskers. A lovely tuft of red mohair doll hair sits atop her head and sitting atop that is a silk floral. Michelle has 2 layers of wonderful lace trim along the bottom of her square body and is wearing a lace trimmed and gathered slip. Her elegant tail sticks out from behind her slip.

"I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" is always up on the latest fashion from the catwalks in Paris. In fact, she used to be one of the models. That is, until her parents told her that it was time for her to take her place within society. So, she gave up the glamorous life of a cat model and came home much to the chagrin of her cat model friends.

Her beautiful dress has multiple layers of gathered lace trim along the bottom hem as well as along the sleeve hems and both are complimented by a layer of straight white lace. Her lace trimmed lined over skirt with waistband overlaps in the front. Her lined and lace trimmed shawl sits beautifully upon her shoulders and is tacked int he front with a DMC bow. A silk floral adorns the overlap of the shawl. Her lace gloves lend elegance to her Victorian outfit. Sleek, graceful, beautiful, and refined. What a package all rolled into one. "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" is the epitome of grace and elegance.


He'd barely gotten in the door when his wife, "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" rushed over to tell him her exciting news. She was so excited and could hardly wait to tell her husband, "Come Here, William Augustus!" that they had gotten the much anticipated email from "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!"

"Come Here, William Augustus!" is a 12" self-standing Victorian cat with a square bottom, brushed suede upper body, coordinated plaid lower body, and embroidered face. He has black bead eyes, a black satin stitched nose, and blushed cheeks. The outline of his mouth is embroidered as are his eyebrows.

His ears are slightly blushed and he has black DMC Embroidery floss whiskers. His tail sticks out from the back of his trousers and a rugged but manly yellow lined hat sits atop his refined gentleman's head.

Since "I Love Mrs. Buzz, Michelle!" is always up on the latest fashion from the catwalks in Paris she makes sure that her husband, "Come Here, William Augustus!" is too. Since she used to be one of the sleekest cat models in Paris she knows who to go to for the latest in fashionable gentleman's attire. And, every time she comes home with yet another fashionable gentleman's suit for her husband she has to rib him about the fact that she gave up the glamorous life of a cat model and came home much to the chagrin of her cat model friends to marry him.

Williams plaid suit is fashionably coordinated. His white shirt is gathered at the sleeves and neck and matches his lace trimmed ascot perfectly. His plaid lined jacket has color coordinated front bands with a lined collar, lapels and cuffs. It is top stitched all along the edges and tied with a color coordinated and top stitched belt which overlaps in front and is sewn together with two buttons.

William knew that when his wife came home with his latest, but fashionable, outfit that he would, once again, be the most refined cat amongst his friends. And, secretly he was so proud that his wife decided to give up her cat modeling career to marry him and join him amongst the elite of society. They don't get much better than his wife and he knows that. Just don't tell Michelle he said that.

A Mouse Brother and Sister - "Keep Me Squeaking, Phebe!" and "Stop Mousing Around, Reginald!" - Handmade Victorian Mouse Dolls

"Keep Me Squeaking, Phebe!" is hoping that her life long friendship with "Barely Victorian, Deb!" will guarantee membership for herself and her brother, "Stop Mousing Around, Reginald!" into the new Victorian Tea Society started by "Bearly Victorian, Ryan!" and his wife "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" She's got her fingers and tail crossed.

"Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" decided to start their own "Victorian Animals Tea Society" for all their wonderful Victorian animal friends because they had been turned down for membership into the posh "Victoriana High Society Tea Club."

Their club would truly have an open membership and be accepting of all individuals and creatures. None of this "open to all", but really closed to animals rules. So what if Ryan and Deb were bears. They were still Victorian to the core. In fact, their lineage was probably older then some of the snooty Victorians who turned down their membership application.

"Keep Me Squeaking, Phebe!" knows that her lineage is of the highest so she and her brother should have no problem getting accepted. Plus, well - you know, she had that life long in with Deb. They're BFF's and tight as mice. Or should we say, tight as mice and bears!

"Keep Me Squeaking, Phebe!" is regal and Victorian to the core, but she has a little bit of an imp in here and just loves a good laugh. Or, in her case, a good squeak! While ball room dancing she has been known to belt out several squeaks or two or even three of laughter. She just loves to dance, and twirl, and laugh, and squeak.

Her brother, "Stop Mousing Around, Reginald!" is much more serious. Much more studious. He is every bit the proper Victorian gentleman. He has a high IQ, great style and pizazz, and is well behaved. It's not that he doesn't like a good laugh like his sister, Phebe. It's just that he feels there are some things you can do in the privacy of your own home and some things you can't. Squeaking is one of those things that belongs at home. Not when attending the finest social gatherings.

However, he adores his sister, Phebe and can't help but chuckle every time he hears her delightful squeak. He loves when she is enjoying herself, but just wishes she were a little quieter about it.


"Keep Me Squeaking, Phebe!" is a 13" Victorian mouse. She is a self standing doll with a square bottom and brushed suede body. Her face is embroidered and she has black bead eyes and a pompom nose. Her wonderful big mouse ears are blushed as is her cheeks and she has a white curly mohair for hair on the top of her head.

Phebe has 2 layers of wonderful lace trim along the bottom of her square body and is wearing a lace trimmed and gathered double layered and lace trimmed slip. Her beautiful coordinating ensemble is the latest in Victorian fashion. Her dress came straight from Paris from the finest of designers. Nothing shabby for Phebe!

Her dress has lace trimmed front overlays attached to a lace trim back panel. It also has multiple layers of lace trim along the sleeve hem and bottom hem and is gathered and lace trimmed along her neck. A ribbon bow is wrapped around her waist and tied in a bow at the back of her dress.

Phebe's beautifully matching lined and lace trimmed bonnet adorns her head and is tied in a bow around her neck. The front of her bonnet folds back and the back of her bonnet is adorned with a large bow.

She is carrying a lace trimmed and matching handkerchief for those times when her eyes start to water from too much laughing - or should we say squeaking!



"Stop Mousing Around, Reginald!" is a 13" Victorian mouse. He is a self standing doll with a square bottom and brushed suede upper body. His face is embroidered and he has black bead eyes and a pompom nose. His wonderful big mouse ears are blushed as is his cheeks. He has a marvelous mustache just under his nose and a tuft of dirty blond curly wool hair on the top of his head.

"Stop Mousing Around, Reginald!" is wearing a wonderfully matching suit. The bottom of his body forms the gathered pantaloons for his square bottomed body and matches his lined jacket. He is wearing a matching gathered shirt and lace trimmed ascot which is wrapped around his neck and tied in the front.

His coordinating vest is lined and tacked together in the front. The matching lined jacket has four top stitched pockets, a collar and lapels, cuffs, and is top stitched with yellow DMC Embroidery floss. It is fastened with a button.

Reginald's six section hat is lined and sits beautifully on his mouse head. Reginald thinks that he's quite the Victorian gentleman - if he doesn't say so himself. Now if he could just get his sister, Phebe, to stop laughing - make that squeaking!

Bearly Victorian, Ryan! and Barely Victorian, Deb!

"Bearly Victorian, Ryan" and his wife, "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" have decided to start their own "Victorian Animals Tea Society" for all their wonderful Victorian animal friends.

After getting rejected for the umpteenth time from the latest Victorian tea society that he had applied to "Barely Victorian, Ryan!" decided that he and his wife should start their own club.

Their club would truly have an open membership and be accepting of all individuals and creatures. None of this "open to all", but really closed to animals rules. So what if Ryan and Deb were bears. They were still Victorian to the core. In fact, their lineage was probably older than some of the snooty Victorians who turned down their membership application.

Only one way around - start your own club! So, "Bearly Victorian, Ryan!" and "Bearly Victorian, Deb!" did. If there's anything Ryan and Deb can't stand it's "hoity-toity" attitudes. In their minds - everyone is created equal whether they're a human or an animal. Bears or humans - what's the difference? Nothing as far as Ryan and Deb are concerned. They're just as Victorian as anyone else.


However, don't let their names fool you. Ryan and Deb are anything but "barely Victorian!" Both Ryan and Deb are Victorian blue bloods. In fact, Ryan's lineage dates back "before the dawn of man!"

Ryan considers himself to be the epitome of the classy Victorian gentleman. He has the right attitude, the right demeanor, the right clothes, the right walk, the right taste in wine. Why, he can talk the talk and walk the walk with the best of the Victorian gentleman.

Deb considers herself to be at the top of her class. She is refined, elegant, stylish, well mannered, well educated, and proper at all times. She is a "true lady" in all sense of the word.

"Bearly Victorian, Ryan!" is a 15" Victorian bear. He is a self standing doll with a square bottom and plush felt body. His face is embroidered and he has black bead eyes and an animal nose.

Ryan is wearing his favorite blue shirt with stand-up collar and buttons. One of his favorite ties is wrapped around his neck. His blue check tweed jacket with a collar and lapels is lined and top stitched. Two wonderful blue buttons are used to fasten his jacket shut. Ryan's lined top hat sits beautifully atop his head and matches his lined jacket.

"Bearly Victorian, Ryan!" is quite the debonair. He knows it. Why don't they?



"Bearly Victorian, Deb!" is a 13" Victorian bear. She is a self standing doll with a square bottom and plush felt body. Her face is embroidered and she has black bead eyes and an animal nose.

Deb has 3 layers of wonderful lace trim along the bottom of her square body and is wearing a lace trimmed and gathered slip. Her beautiful coordinating ensemble is the latest in Victorian fashion. Her dress has multiple layers of lace trim along the sleeve hem and bottom hem and is gathered at the neck edge.

Her matching wrap is lined and lace trimmed and overlaps wonderfully in the front and decorated with a bow. She has a lined and coordinating lace trimmed cape fastened around her neck and shoulders. Deb's beautifully matching lined and lace trimmed flannel bonnet adorns her head and is tied in a bow around her neck. A lace bow decorates the front of her bonnet.

"Bearly Victorian, Deb!" is quite the fashionable lady. She knows it. Why don't they?

Grandma Aurora May and Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!

A little while ago I asked the readers of my Linda's blog what kind of dolls they would like to see me design. Well, one of the responses was to design a "Grandmother and Grandfather" couple. I liked that idea and decided to make my Grandparents a Victorian couple.

I also decided that my "Grandma and Grandpa" couple should have marvelous gray hair so they could join the "Gray Is Beautiful" series of dolls. Of course, I had to ask all the "Gray Is Beautiful" dolls if this was okay with them. They thought about it for awhile and then told me they would be thrilled to have new members to their exclusive club. So, "Grandma Aurora May and Grandpa Lewis" were born and became the newest members of the "Gray Is Beautiful" series of dolls.

"Grandma Aura May - On An Expedition!" is ready to go. She's been ready for over a year and is anxious to get started on her expedition with "Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!"

"Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!" isn't as anxious to go. He loves to please his wife, but is really more of a homebody and would prefer to stay home working on his coin and stamp collections.

Grandma Aurora May loves a good adventure and loves finding new places and new venues to explore. She'd rather spend all day looking for a great site for a picnic and always looks forward to their annual expedition to the beach.

Her main reason is that she loves to spend time with her grandchildren and loves cooking for them.

It's not that Grandpa Lewis doesn't love his grandchildren - he adores them. It's just he doesn't have a lot of patience for his grand children's boundless energy and "ants in their pants" inability to sit still. After one day at the beach with the grandchildren he's ready to go home.

Grandma Aurora May tells him to lighten up a bit. That's the way children are. Full of energy. Exploring everything. What's wrong with that?

Well, Grandpa Lewis doesn't mind enthusiasm and willingness to learn. He just can't stand little idle hands playing with the cherished coins in his coin collection and touching all the stamps in his stamp collection.

And he can't leave his collections at home while he's on a three month expedition to the beach. He'd go stir crazy without something to keep him occupied all that time.

Grandma Aurora May really does understand her husband and knows that she has to keep him happy or their won't be anymore expeditions to the beach. And, that she wouldn't be happy about. So, each and every year she tells the grandchildren that Grandpa Lewis's stamp and coin collections are off limits. Most of the time the grandchildren listen. Sometimes, however, there are those idle hands.......


"Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition" is a 15" Victorian Grandfather cloth doll with watercolor penciled face. His boots are cross-tied and painted black.

Grandpa Lewis is wearing his favorite plaid suit with his favorite blue collared shirt. His plaid pantaloons are gathered and his plaid jacket is lined with a gathered bottom section. His lined jacket with lapels has two buttons and is tied with a plaid sash. He has a gray mustache and his gray roving hair is long and thick and tied in a ponytail at the back of his neck.

He fancies himself quite the gentleman and expert on rare coins and stamps. Now if he could just keep his grandchildren away from his coin and stamp collection. He loves his grandchildren but thinks they need to learn the value of a rare coin and stamp collection and how destructive idle hands can be.


"Grandma Aurora May - On An Expedition" is a 16" Victorian Grandmother cloth doll with watercolor penciled face. Her boots are cross-tied and painted black. She is wearing gathered and lace trimmed bloomers and a gathered slip.

Her fancy Victorian expedition outfit has a dress bodice with a lined lace trimmed front band, double rowed lace trimmed over sleeves, and lace trimmed neck edge. The dress skirt portion of her fancy Victorian dress also has a double row of lace trim and is made of a coordinating striped fabric. Satin ribbon is tied around the waistline and a stain ribbon bow adorns the front of her dress.

She has a full head of gray thick roving hair fastened in a puff. Her bonnet matches the bodice of her dress and is lined and lace trimmed. She is carrying a wicker basket with lining and ribbon trims.
