Introducing Henrietta

She was created with love by the very talented Christine of The Puppenstube . You can also see more of Christine's work at her Etsy Store .

Isn't she just darling? The moment I saw her I was drawn to her and knew she would be coming to live in our home. It was Christine who first commented on the similarities between Henrietta (or Baby H as my son calls her) and my own son. The curly reddish hair, the beautiful brown eyes. The sweet little pink mouth.

She's perfect in every single way - dressed in a soft recycled sweater of autumn colors with flowers for her bunting.

I'm not ashamed to say it was I who fell asleep with her clutched in my arms last night. Of course this morning she was gone - and my own son was fast asleep in my arms holding Baby H while he slept.

I hope to add more of Christine's beautiful dolls to our family in the future.

Yours in magical handmade dolls,

Simple Mama


  1. The instant I saw the first picture I thought it was a doll replica of your son. They are both beautiful.

  2. What a beautiful doll! I hope Baby H enjoys lots of love at your house. :)

  3. What a beautiful handmade doll. You can feel the love in that doll.

  4. Danita, thank you so much for your posting and your kind words! And I am not ashamed to say that it brought tears to my eyes! You are so generous!
    Blessings to you and your family, Christine

  5. Would it be bad for a grown, married woman to sleep with a doll?

  6. Wow! She's is the most precious thing I've ever seen!

    Jope your back is feeling better. :)

  7. I almost (almost) wish I had a kid of my own to give this doll too!

    New to your blog, great work here.
