The one on the right with the brown eyes is made from the Seeley mold and the one on the left with the blue-grey eyes is made from the Collectible Doll Co. mold. The matching costumes were created by Sue Sharp of The Sharp Needle. Since the brown eyed one is no longer available I have listed only the blue-grey eyed one on the Dolls For Sale page here on my website.

New “Photo of the Day” at Land of Oz Dolls!

Good morning all, and Happy Labor Day Weekend! For the last few months I have been doing a “Photo of the Day” on my Land of Oz Dolls Facebook page. It has been so popular, I have decided to try it out on my website for all of you who do not have access to Facebook. These photos are of dolls I have made in the past and are probably no longer available for sale. If you see one you are really interested in it wouldn’t hurt to ask, it may still be available. Otherwise the photos are for fun and to give you a daily dose of dolly hugs! Please let me know if you like them!

My first “Photo of the Day” is actually a black and white photo of some patriotic Bleuettes. The one on the left is a Bleuette “Friend” made from the 1907 Jumeau mold from Collectible Doll Co. The two in the center are Bleuette “Golds” SFBJ 60 made from a Seeley mold. The one on the right is a Premiere Jumeau Bleuette also made from a Seeley mold. They are all dressed in patriotic costumes created by Clara Pelfrey.

I hope you will enjoy your daily dose of dolly love,
