Wiltshire is a lovely area of England in the southwest, most famous for Salisbury Plain where the ancient landmark Stonehenge can be found. Natives of Wiltshire are sometimes known by the nickname "moonrakers", a term for local smugglers. This particular house enjoys a long tradition. It began life as a 16th century working mill, but was later adapted into a fantastic home and historical site. Its gardens, designed and refined over centuries, are as extensive and beautiful as the house itself and remind one of Rudyard Kiplings comment, "Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made by...

Kelly found the Little Somerford Mill one of the more individual and interesting homes in England and returned to paint it during different seasons. Little Somerford Mill has been, as one of its owners termed it, "hugely romantic" in its outlook. And its had the 400 years necessary to make beautiful gardens and lawns that are the pride of the neighborhood even under snow, maintaining its character as a showplace as owners have come and gone. Two of its recent owners include David Putnam, the producer of Chariots of Fire and other fine British films and James Dyson of vacuum...

Louis is a J.N. Steiner doll (French bisque porcelain) purchased from the New York Doll Hospital in New York. He is wearing a daytime frock coat in what by 1860 had become the standard black for males; however, frock coats were becoming shorter and this one extends only to mid-thigh rather than all the way to the knee. Etiquette of the time stated that the well-dressed man needed four kinds of coats: a morning coat, a frock coat, a dress coat, and an overcoat. These were most generally dark blue or black for town and tweed for the country. With...

Louise has a German bisque head and a kid body, with brown hair and blue eyes. She is wearing clothing based upon a chapter on the French settlers of Louisiana in the History of American Costume. Clearly, this would have been her holiday best, given the relative expense involved in wearing batiste and cotton fabrics, which were far more expensive than wool. Her outfit begins with a French batiste chemise over which she wears a yellow cotton skirt and laced bodice (possibly eliminating the need for a corset) trimmed with black embroidery. A further touch of fancy is added by a French batiste apron. Because it is a...
