John Thornton is such a doll!

"Real life" has been very busy for me lately, so let's take a moment to relax
and enjoy a little Thornton on this Thursday!

*Remember to pause the blog's background music (bottom of screen) before viewing.*
Thanks to delicateblossom for the awesome video!

As I was browsing the web, I stumbled across these John & Margaret dolls,
which were hand-made by Debbie Ritter.  Aren't they cute?  I love his little cravat. :)
If you click HERE, you can see all of Debbie's other hand-made
creations.  (I am totally blown away by this woman's talent!  Love it!)
There are other period drama character dolls from Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility,
Gone with the Wind, Phantom of the Opera, Jane Eyre, etc.

Debbie also has an etsy site HERE where you can buy her dolls. 
She even does custom orders.  (I wonder if she's suddenly going to get
requests for Lucas North, Harry Kennedy or Guy of Gisborne? haha.)

You said the magic words! *jumps to see the dolls* Jane Eyre! :D Can't find it though, but she has two Charlotte Brontë dolls. Fun find either way. Thanks for sharing! :)

Oh I love these dolls. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing the link Nat.

In case anyone's interested? There will be a special BAFTA screening for Strike Back in London. Tickets start at 7.50 GBP.

Oh I forgot to mention...I believe it's just the first two episodes.

I love the character of John Thornton! But much more I like his interpretation, his What to wear, his sideburns ... Finally Richard does a splendid job. I love him.

Thanks for the tip off about the Strike Back screening - I am now determined to be there!

You can see the Jane Eyre doll on her etsy link (the 2nd "HERE" listed) rather than her flicker link.

Oh well, I always knew that Darcy is quite wooden! Those dolls are hilarious and what a wide range of characters she offers.

I want a Harry doll. Bad.

Wow! Those dolls are fantastic. I may have to buy a Lucy doll.

Those dolls are cute and she does an amazing job of making them resemble the various persons for something so small!

Great video too! Thanks for the post!

Don't suppose there's any chance of making any lifesize RA dolls is there? Around the 6'2" size sounds about right to me. Don't bother about dressing him just send them as is!
