New doll ~ Snowflake

It's taken me all week to finish this doll, because of our new additions!  Pig duo were so keen to get out of the barn to roll in mud, snout around and lay in the pool, we had to build a very secure fence around the paddock.  $1000 later, I think they appreciate it. These were very expensive 'drop off's'!!





She's in my Etsy shop now.
I'm hoping to be more productive from now on!

  3. Lovely is a good description, sweet and delicate...

    the pigs? well, that wouldn't have been in my plan either...the money...but I guess when we decide to go full ahead, we have to take what comes no matter how hard it can be.

    When I adopted my Hanzie, a month later I had to get his teeth bonded...seriously, his enamel scraped right off...and with a vet 1.5 hours away...then $1500 later....ugh. Oh what we do...

    You just happen to have a very big heart!

  5. She's beautiful Abi of course...
    But I also think that you are an amazing woman that takes in incredible animals..

    I myself almost took in 4 yes 4 pygmy goats... until someone else gave them homes...

    You my friend are the same after my heart~
    Love Pattee

  10. A new excitement you have with your new pets. The very nice thing is that THEY have chosen you! I have heard pigs are very clever animals and you are going to know whether it's true...
    Snowwhite looks tender and fragile. A real beauty! Her future owner must take good care of her!:)

  13. That is like the doll I have always wanted with the delicacy of the ballet way, the relaxed pose, the long neck and almost Scandinavian hair style... ahhh... she is perfection. You light me up. Thanks friend. Blessings.

  16. Oh Abi, she's just so gorgeous and magickal.I am so bummed she's gone :( I hope you make more of your beautiful dolls soon. I know they each take their time like children to arrive, but I want one :) I need a special doll just for myself. And I'm sure the piggies are so happy. Looking forward to seeing more photos of them :)

  19. As usual, Abi, your doll is lovely. As for those porkers, oey vey!!! They better be appreciative...good thing you all (if you were still in the Hill Country, I'd say y'all) are vegetarians!! LOL

    Happy weekend and yes, I'm making Cranberry Orange muffins with walnuts, however, I'm rethinking the muffins and perhaps make mini-loaves...easier to store.

    xxoo,
    Georgina

  25. She's beautiful Abi. I hope the animals give you a break for awhile too. I was wondering how long it would take for them to find you. 3 months. ;D
