Three of the mixed media Victorian collage shelf sitter art dolls I made recently were a trio of Victorian sisters that I named Pat, Polly, and Phebe.
Pat, Polly, and Phebe are a trio of sisters who love spending time together. Whether it's shopping, sitting around talking, sewing, cooking, or just fanning themselves with their beautiful Victorian fans you'll find them together.
Pat is a 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" x 3/4" mixed media Victorian shelf sitter wood doll with a paper face, pink painted finger nails, sponge painted wood body, paper collage and embellished outfit. Her sides and back are sponge painted and her outfit is an embellished paper collage two tier bodice dress with raised orange dots, dark green waistband and green cape with raised orange dots. Orange lace trim adorned with a print pattern paper flower is wrapped around her neck. Her light brown thick alpaca yarn hair from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is wrapped in a bun and adorned with a white flower and leaf ribbon braid. She is holding a Victorian paper fan in her hands.

London, Sep 12 (IANS) It is a myth that most sex toys are bought by young, single women. In fact, sales of sex toys is split evenly between both the sexes, claims the world's biggest study of sex toy sales. According to a study by Lovehoney, Britain's most popular sex toy firm, 75 percent of female purchasers were in a relationship and an even higher 79 percent of male purchasers were dating ...

Good golly, who doesn't love Steiff's adorable Mollies? These precious pups have been delighting Steiff collectors since their introduction in 1925. Most enthusiasts are familiar with the company's sweet sitting style Molly dogs. However, the company also made lesser known standing versions of this legacy design. Steiffgal had the great pleasure of adopting one of these standing sweeties over the summer, and this one came with a neat surprise - but more about that later. Here's a bit more about this fantastic find.
Molly was introduced in the Steiff line in 1925 in both sitting and standing versions. This standing Molly was produced in 8, 12, 14, 17, 22, 28, and 35 cm through 1936. Other standing models included Molly dogs on regular and eccentric wooden wheels, hanging pram toys, musical versions, and barking pull toys; a few of these novelties were manufactured until the early 1940's. No version of standing Molly was reintroduced after the factory reopened for business post war in the late 1940's.
This standing Molly has spent her life as a "friend for life," and Steiffgal has the proof! When she purchased this blue ribbon buddy, she came with a very special treat - provenance, in the form of four vintage, black and white photo postcards of her with her original owner! Each is 13-1/2" cm by 8-1/2 cm and has the words, "Frankfurt a. M. - T. H. Voight. - Bad Homburg v. d. H." printed on the back. Here are these four charming pictures.
This first photo shows the beautiful little girl resting on a cushion. She is holding a large doll, and Molly peeks out behind her legs. This photo is not dated.
This second photo is quite similar to the first one, and you can also make out more details about her doll. Molly stands right in front and you can see her coloring and perhaps a bit of her original ribbon or chest tag. This photo is also not dated.
This third photo features the little girl standing up and holding Molly. Her dress is the same in all three of these photos. This is probably the best view of the Molly, and you can clearly make out Molly's round, metal rimmed chest tag. This photo is dated February 15, 1928.
This final photo shows the little girl posing with an older woman, perhaps her mom, an aunt, cousin, or even an older sister. It is hard to tell, and there aren't alot of clues in the photo. Here she clutches Molly like a toy, and you can make out what is probably the ribbon around Molly's neck. This photo is dated 1927.
Steiffgal hopes this discussion on this standing Molly with provenance has been picture perfect for you.

I think a definite favorite from Four Horsemen’s Gothitropolis series was their Bald Eagle. He was just so extreme! I mean he is the definition of patriotism.
His armor is red, white, and blue, he wears the American flag as a cape, and he literally is the national symbol for the United States. So this figure, named Eagalus, is now open for pre-order on Four Horsemen’s website. Although pre-orders did open today, only Kickstarter backers are able to order them now.
They also will be getting a special discount price too, US$28. Why didn’t I back this project?! This early access will be for 24 hours only and will end at 3pm EST tomorrow.
For everyone else who wants this figure, you can pre-order it tomorrow, September 15, starting at 3pm EST. However, you will have to pay the regular price, US$32. So Eagalus will come with a lance, interchangeable feet, and his American flag cape.
Of course, his package has to be patriotic too, so he will come in a package with an American flag background. Four Horsemen’s Eagalus will be flying out to homes in November.
