(SOLD) Meet Talise.  Talise was inspired by the children who traditionally gathered oysters and clams on Chincoteague Island; the most memorable account of which was written about in Marguerite Henry's book "Misty of Chincoteague".  In the classic children's story, Paul and Maureen work by gathering oysters and raking  clams to help raise funds for the upcoming pony auction.

Talise means "lovely water".  She began as a 1980's Sasha.  Her features have been repainted in a free looking Sasha studio style, and sealed.  She has light freckles on her face. Her sun-bleached light red hair is in two careless pigtails.   Her wig is a Monique Gold in a brand new style; one I have never used before.  It has a full center part in the back for braids and when it is worn loose, it looks dry and windblown.
She wears clothing that has been stained and distressed looking to give a realistic appearance of a child working in the sand and dirt.  She comes with her metal bucket full of shells, including some conch shells gathered for her special collection.

Talise is a one of a kind, never to be exactly duplicated.   She comes signed with a certificate and with an original Sasha wrist tag.  I may be contacted here    As always, 10% of the sale price of this doll goes to helping real children through Compassion International.
