A Charity Auction

I’d like to introduce to you, Miss Rosalynn. 

Miss Rosalynn came into being thanks to the combined efforts of several talented members of the group Prim and Whimsy GirLs. Miss Rosalynn traveled across the country twice before she was ready to make her debut.

Miss Rosalynn’s  life started in the apt hands of Annie of Chickadee Primitives.  Wanting to keep her design simple, Annie made the body from muslin giving Miss Rosalynn curled boots and leaf hands. After stuffing her quite nicely, Annie placed Miss Rosalynn in the box so she might begin her travels. Miss Rosalynn dreamt of the day she would wear petals and a pretty dress.

Sheryl of Mother’s Dream Artworks was the next stop. While there, Sheryl worked her magic and hand sculpted a lovely face for Miss Rosalynn. Sheryl then painted Miss Rosalynn’s face, hands, and feet. And surrounded her face with beautiful petals. Miss Rosalynn was beginning to blossom.

The last stop of Miss Rosalynn’s journey was Susan of Prim and Proper Folks. After consulting with Miss Rosalynn, Susan sewed a beautiful eyelet dress (which has been aged just enough) with ribbon trim along the hemline and ruffled sleeves. She also has a long overdress from green floral pattern with a full gathered skirt, trimmed in ivory ribbon and secured above the waist with a button.

And to set off her beautiful attire, Miss Rosalynn is wearing a gorgeous rose necklace designed by Dorothy of Big Time Rock Show. This polymer necklace is hand painted and contains a one carat white Topaz gem as well as a freshwater pearl. Maybe Miss Rosalynn will let her owner borrow it from time to time.

This is a charity auction with the proceeds going to the charity United Through Reading. United Through Reading is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit organization. Their mission is to unite families facing physical separation by facilitating the bonding experience of reading aloud together. Click here to go Miss Rosalynn's eBay listing!
