New Kitty is wearing a white muslin dress, trimmed with cotton fur.
Gold pom poms adorn her feet/paws.
“if the good Lord’s willing & the creek don’t rise”…
This limited edition kitty along with a small number of dolls will be updated onto a bigcartel store Thursday 8th December 7.00pm EST (Melbourne).
Dolls within Australia should make it in time for Christmas, sadly overseas orders won’t!
Edit: time change due to life.
Hi there, just letting you know a few more lovely stockists have been added to the list.

My photo’s are a little repetitive of late but after christmas I hope to be working on a few new things & back to setting up a proper web page & shop for my lovely overseas enquiries.
In the mean time…I think the above might be my favourite outfit so far, with it’s vintage fairytale hanky for the ruff.
