LOOK AT THESE DOLLS! THE LIEUTENANT AND THE CAPTAIN!

What fantastic work! Mrs. Thompson is a real artist… I’m sitting on my hands here so I won’t send her a mail and buy the lads (and if there wasn’t a big major giant vet bill coming soon for Fluke, I’d probably do it, anyway, but 25 year old cats come before dolls, even dolls as adorable as those two).

Isn’t that amazing! I wonder if she’d make a lieutenant with red hair…

Have a look around her website, there are wonderful things to see (and buy!) –

Maybe I should really try to play the lottery…

Edited to add a “huzzah” for the stockings – and look at the details on the breeches and the coats!

I can’t tell from this picture if the gentlemen have pigtails or not (I hope they have, that would be perfection). As the breeches are white, it must be after 1774… good grief. I’m turning into a history geek…
