She's wonderful, Heather! She is like a woodland gypsy and the acorn purse sounds great. What about searching for gypsy or fairy names? I think you'll like Susanna's book- it really gives great insight into the dollmaking process. Also, if you like Shelley Thornton, you will also enjoy Mimi Kirchner's work. http://mimikirchner.com/ She is a terrific artist that has worked in many mediums (like you!) and her work is always evolving. Her gallery also has a lot of images of historical dolls. Doll Street Dreamers is a neat group (http://www.dollstreetdreamers.com/sitemap.htm) I started with cloth dolls so that is where many of my links go to! Anyway, enjoy!

Oh, how beautiful! She has a lot of personality. My suggestion for names is Leela (or spelling variant).

I think I would name her GloryBee. But that's just a thought. Or how bout Ruby? She's sweet no matter what you call her kiddo! Dolls are kewl!

This doll is quite wonderful. She reminds me of an Ingrid...
