Lady Lucillia Whitelake

Back in the late 18th century, in the South-East of England, there lived an Earl.
The Earl of Whitelake.
He owned a vast expanse of land, know as Whitelake Downs.
The Earl had five children.
The older four all boys.

The youngest, a daughter.

Lady Lucillia Whitelake.
Those closest to her called her Lucie.

As you can imagine, being both the only girl of the family, as well as the youngest, Lucie was doted upon by everyone of the estate.

Despite the attentions she received, Lucie was as sweet as one could find, from the top of her tiara to the tips of her daintily slippered feet.

Lucie enjoyed the outdoors and spent much of her time roaming the estate.

Some days she could be found walking the wooded trails or collecting wildflowers from the meadows.

But most often one would find Lucie picnicking, taking tea or reading under her favorite apple tree down by the south pond.

Lucie's life was one of love and happiness.


And I am just tickled pink with her!
I created Lucie in Colleen Moody's class at The Gilded Nest event.
When I grow up, I want to be Colleen Moody.... okay, maybe I can just be a doll maker.
I can't wait to show you the AMAZING doll I purchased from Colleen.
The Farmboy raised an eyebrow, but I know y'all will love her as much as I do!

I saw you in some of the photos on Jessi's post. Looks like you guys had so much fun. I adore Luci!!! You did an amazing job on her but, of course you would... everything you do is amazing. I hated missing the event but, that was the weekend Hubby had his heart cath done & I just couldn't leave him. Surgery is soon & I can't wait for this to be over & him to start healing so I get my life back. Can't wait to see your new doll. HUGS! Charlene

My goodness!!! Lucie turned out to be absolutely ravishing and I love her back story! You truly create some of the very loviest things. My bird girl is still waiting on me to shop for more lace...she seems very patient. Enjoyed that weekend!! Sitting on those steps for two hours + was even fun...tell the Farmboy 'bout those guns & all you learned??


Alisa...I am catching up on your posts and read the one about your purchase of Colleen's doll. If this one that you created had caught my eye, I know the same thing would have happened to me...your styling and color choice and personality you have given this doll is stunningly beautiful! Just the perfect amount of enchantment, and your story is wonderfully told. You have outdone yourself! Methinks Farmboy was just winking at this creation, being secretly enchanted. ~ Angela
