Meet Baby #18
born December 17, 2013
5 lbs., 15 oz.            19 in.

Rosalee is a custom-ordered baby. She lives in Ohio, USA.
All Heartstrings Nursery babies are one-of-a-kind, so there is only one "Rosalee".

Baby Rosalee has such a sweet little face!

Rosalee was lovingly created from Marissa May's  "Violet" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked to ensure that her baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, mottled newborn skin, blushing, and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

Her beautiful soft ash blonde mohair was directionally micro-rooted by hand,
in a natural growth pattern, one or two strands at a time,
with a fine gauge needle, sealed from inside with waterproof glue,
then cut and styled.

She has gorgeous "Lady Blue" Eyeco Soft Glass Platinum Eyes
with amazing lifelike detail, and human reflection of light.
Her long, light brown lashes were hand-applied, and her three-dimensional
blonde eyebrows were painted on with a superfine brush
to give them a barely-there appearance.

Baby Rosalee's limbs, head, and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester
fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn baby

No detail has been overlooked on this little darling.
Baby tears, moist looking lips, nose, and ears,
and tiny manicured fingernails and toenails
add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". She has
a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Rosalee went to her new home with
her birth certificate signed by the artist, a handmade ID bracelet, a beautiful
layette, and her favorite little Mint Green & Pink stuffed bunny
