Romantic item of the week!!

I was thinking a good way for me to decorate my home more romantically would be to show what I have and build on to it.
Todays feature is a hand made porcelin doll. My grandmother made her, and I was lucky enough to bring her home with me when my grandma passed away. I have given her the name Elanor. She now sits in my china cabinet, watching us as we eat dinner. I Simply adore her.
Her dress is entirely hand draped, and tiny little roses are placed on her perfectly. Her sweet face was hand panted , you can tell my grandmother loved making dolls.
