Meet Melissa Mittens
I had a wonderful, special request from artist, Susan Faye. She commissioned me to create a doll representing her beloved kitty, Melissa Mittens. I am thrilled to have been chosen to create this tribute to such a fine feline. Susan says that Miss Mittens had a wicked sense of humor and would have loved to juggle mice if she could have :). I think she would have thoroughly enjoyed having these little gray critters in her paws! Melissa Mittens was long and wiry, so she got some super long, skinny legs and a less "robust" figure than some of my dolls have. I hope that this doll captures a bit of the joy and fun that the original Melissa Mittens provided her mom with!
Please make sure to visit Susan's blog!! She is an amazing watercolor artist who paints fantastic custom cat lady portraits.
