Matilda passed away on 2/26/14. She was nearly five. She died of ovarian cancer, something that is common in old chickens. She will be missed. Here she is below as a day-old chick. I got her on April 2, 2009. Hard to believe that five years has gone by! Matilda was the head hen in our coop and the rest of the girls are a bit lost without her.

Bitty Belle in Pink Petticoat

I made this as a custom order for someone on Etsy. I just love Bitty Belle. She reminds me why Helen Kish is one of my two favorite doll artists!

I did finally update my etsy shop, too (link over to the right).  There are a few dresses in there and some underthings for various sized dolls.
