On November 4th 1873 a patent was filed
and Izannah Walker became
the first woman to receive an U.S. patent !!

Her invention was a mold
that could produce a
very special doll!!

Betany Bounty, Patience Faithfully,
and Freedom Liberty
are planning a lovely picnic in her honor!

A perfect day and there were
many wild flowers to collect!

 And the table to be set for tea and lunch,
and some crafts were to be made!

Joyfully the girls worked in
anticipation of a sweet feast!!


You can read a great article written by
Dixie Redmond and Edyth O'Neill
 for Early American Life Magazine



 The new "Antique DOLL Collector" Magazine
has a wonderful Izannah Walker
tribute article by Paula Walton
an expert Izannah Walker historian, 
and reproduction  Izannah Doll Maker!!
(This magazine managed to sell out but it is rumored
to be on stands at bookstores and such)
Also a great article on doll aprons !!

Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

Hidden away in a sweet secret place
the girls gathered
And so the birthday picnic began!!

Betany Bountiful made by Paula Walton
molded from an original doll as well as
Patience Faithfully made by Lynda Hampton

Sweet little Baby Iddy~Pim 
Made by Judi Hunziker

Betany Bountiful
became a bit lonely
when she came to live,
so she got some dollies

But this was only a distraction
and she still felt lonely
and longed for a real baby sister!

Sweet little Baby Iddy~Pim
came and it made her very happy!!

Sometimes Betany got to babysit
sweet Noel a very special doll !

Then she found a Best Friend 
named Freedom Liberty
and this gave her much joy!!

 They love to play and dream together !!

But soon Betany found out that she
had a cousin that was all the way from
Australia, she was beside herself!! 

Patience Faithfully came to live
and there was much joy,
and many things in common!!

Happiness indeed!

Mama Mildred and Missie 
want to wish a Happy Birthday
200 years to Izannah Walker
and thank her for paving the way for women!!

The Mousiekins enjoy visiting with the girls!!

There are other Dolls at the residence 
and Betany loves to socialize and 
reminisce about times past! 


On Oct 29th 2017 there will be a special exhibit
 with real original Izannah Dolls to view, during
The Jenny Lind Doll Club Annual Show,
in Southbury, CT

  1. Oh Linnie, what a wonderful dedication to Izannah Walker. I am humbled to have one of my dolls included with such beautiful works from Lynda Hampton and Paula Walton. Thank you dear friend,♥ Judi

  2. Thank you for sharing this celebration with us. The shady, secret spot, surrounded by bees and wildflowers looks so peaceful, and the dolls, so serene. How beautiful.

    1. That wonderful wild garden is a result of neglect lol!! While I was sick I wondered what the garden would do!! God is good and how pretty it is in it's own nature!! XX OO

  3. Thanks for sharing so much about these dolls. I just don't know much about them, but you have inspired me to find out more. Love all your dolls and your photo shoot. Enjoy.
    Love ya, Linda

  4. Dear Linnie:
    What a wonderful post about these dolls. I am amazed at your collection and this information about them. The little tea time in the wildflowers was delightful!

  5. Happy birthday to Izannah Walker! Such a wonderful holiday! Thank you for sharing with us.

  6. What treasures, and what fun you create! I absolutely loved the doll picnic.

  7. Ah Linnie, you surely know how to throw a party! I like to think that Izannah is smiling and nodding her head in approval. Your dolls couldn't have a better life, and must feel right at home surrounded by so many beautiful old things.

  8. Oh Linnie, what a party and sweet dedication to Izannah Walker. Such beautiful old dollies gathered in such a beautiful garden.. Thank you so much for sharing.
    blessings dear friend

  9. That is the most beautiful spot for a party. What a sweet family of dolls. I want to look at some of the sites. Thank you for the links.

  10. Oh wow Linnie, what an amazing post! The dolls are fantastic and the picnic setting is out of this world! Loved it all!

  11. Looks like fun was had by all! Where did you find such treasures? Are yours from the 1800's?!

  12. I dont know how I missed this post, but I'm happy to see it. Izannah Walker dolls I've known about for 30 years, but never collected them. They were always so pricey. However, It seems that you were learning to make them at one point, did you ever do it? I see that you have one of Paulas! What a lovely picnic, and story about lost and found acquaintance and new friendships..

    1. I just attended a show with over 20 real Izannah dolls in CT, and met lovely Paula! What a thrill to see these amazing historical dolls!!! And I got to hold two of them!!
      (Now that I'm feeling better I will get back tofinishing two that I had started) :-)

  13. I never knew about these until I got in the Take Peace Group! Very special and a lovely post!

  14. This was an absolutely fabulous out ... I love gleaning the history about the doll making.. and ... your photos are so much fun ... such a wonderful dolly party ... That You for sharing the JOY...
