Let me know if you have questions or are interested in custom Shirley's Girlies. Custom items are among my favorite, as they allow me to participate, in a tiny way, in YOUR special events! I love hearing your stories. I also paint (seriously, but still fun!) and have another Etsy site for that - www.shirleyloweart.etsy.com

A specially made Girlie or Guy replica of one of your favorite people will be a memento that will bring a smile every day, and will be a gift that nobody else will give them.

Giggles are soon to follow!

OTHER POSSIBILITIES.....A custom made heirloom corsage for brides or a patriotic rosette for party or meeting attendees brings pizzazz to an outfit or hat. Fascinators add a touch of whimsy, and my extra special handmade headwear wreaths are sure to become heirlooms. Sassy girls adorn their wedding, party, or prom boots with an attention-grabbing boot garter. All items are fashioned from handmade rosettes of lovely vintage laces and fabrics, or feathers, tassels, fringe, beads, silk flowers, buttons, pearls, and whatever else I may tuck in on a whim.

About

The birth of Shirley's Girlies

Here's how it all began. There was once a little girlie named Shirley who loved to draw, paint, and make fanciful things. Often times, friends and family would be the recipients of handmade gifts of cards, poems, and other labor intensive objects d'art. Though primitive, they were constructed with love. As the years went by, Shirley improved her skills, continuing the tradition of creating imaginative items which would be special to each recipient.

"Shirley's Girlies" were born long before a cute name was ever attached to them. These old fashioned wooden clothespin dolls perched on Christmas trees for many years. Many people comment that they made clothespin dolls or animals in their childhood. With the launch of my art shows in 2011, I tried to think of a small "happy" to sell in the booth. The time was right for the formal debut of "Shirley's Girlies!" With their hand painted faces and blingy attire, they reached a new level of sophistication, modeling fur coats, feather boas, sequined wraps, lacy dresses, stiletto pumps with designer handbags, and hats that would make any lady envious! A sentimental touch is added when I use special vintage fabrics supplied by the customer. Ballerinas, brides, fairies, angels, princesses, Golfing Girlies, Bikini Babes, Blue Jean Babes, Gardening Girlies, cheerleaders, and "Shirley's Burlies" joined the collection. Many custom caricatures have now been created, bringing giggles from the adoptee. At shows, I have been rewarded and gratified to see the look of amazement and delight on the faces of those trying to select their own Girlie. Whether it is a small girlie, a grandparent, or someone choosing a "happy" to cheer up a friend, the selection process always includes laughter, and THAT is the true purpose of "Shirley's Girlies"! They have progressed far beyond Christmas ornaments to gift toppers, cake toppers, corsages, wreath inserts, name holders for ladies luncheons, hostess gifts, party favors, and now they are inserted in my whimsical and fabulous fascinators! Lovingly handmade, painted, and clothed, "Shirley's Girlies" are tiny, but packed full of Southern attitude!

In recent years, fascinators, boot bracelets, corsages, and lovely heirloom fabric crowns have joined the assortment, all geared to ladies of every age.

    I have been "artsy" all my life. As a little girl, I was constantly making things. That led to the discovery of oil paints in my teen years, and acrylics in my later years. My inquisitive creative mind has led me down many artistic avenues!

For custom girlies or guys, please note hair color, eye color, desired body type, favorite colors or styles of clothing, etc. All this info is not a necessity, but the more I know, the more it allows me to better replicate the person. Please convo if you have questions. For custom brides, grooms, and attendants, I will create a caricature that matches their attire as much as possible. Of course, I am somewhat limited by the size of the clothespin, and availability of supplies suitable to a 4 1/2" (or 11.4 cm.) doll, but will do my best to create an absolutely adorable replica of your person! Please note that all Girlies have small parts and are not suitable to be played with by small children.
