I wish to thank each and everyone of you for standing by and supporting this site over the years. For some of you that know me and my family, well you know Rhonda has gone onto the new phase of her life with her husband and kids. I bought out everything and have now been #painting. Yes finally my #FineArts.

We have new Limited Edition Fine Art Prints available on the web site.  

Not that many left and we have a sale with 25% off right now. 

With this said, I still sew dolls and create #primitivepatterns, #quilts between dry time on my paintings.
I hope that you will check out my #instagram @FrancesShurley  and also on #Twitter. You can find me on Facebook along with live broadcasting soon. I recently started a #youtube channel and hope to put all the links on here soon. 

I wanted to thank you all, I am living the life I had dreamed.

Update: I am trying to go thru and update the patterns for the dolls and list them here. I will do my best to update with buy now buttons and instant downloads for you. 

I have reduced all the pricing on all the older patterns and so that means new ones will be coming as I can get to them. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and enjoy life - it only gets better with time.

News for Dolls and Paintings for 2016

Buy handmade from our Etsy shop. You can download patterns as epatterns and create your own. Or ask us and we are happy to create one for you or even a painting from the Web site.

Since the year began alot has happened. My daughter has remarried. I am creating dolls and painting on my canvas using oils and acrylic paints. 

You can still find the dolls on etsy and facebook under Raggedyrhondas or look for me under Raggedyrhondas Dolls. The etsy shop has the majority of the epatterns now marked at 50% off regular price. The reductions have already been taken.  You will not need a coupon for the sale price. 

If you are interested in fine art paintings check me out at and I will be loading a couple of new painting with a buy it now feature. Some paintings you will need to contact me for payment as some will range from $350 to $10,000 and the actual shipping is included in the piece of art for the USA. Some large paintings actually cost me over $300 on larger ones to ship and some much more as I have UPS to package them and ship and my larger ones have actual cost me over several hundred to ship since they were over 4ft by 5ft paintings. (The larger paintings will also have an insurance cost added to the painting price so you are covered on shipping and insurance on one price)

I hope you enjoy seeing all the new primitive dolls, epatterns, and of course my fine arts. I appreciate all of you visiting, all your friendships, to all my customers I thank you all. 

Will be updating more here in the future with a new link for the fine arts blog at . Check out my fine arts page on facebook if you will. You can find the link thru Frances Shurley Artist. Thanks again and have a Happy Thanksgiving to all. Frances

Raggedy Rhondas has been busy lately sewing and painting Vacuum Cover Mammy Dolls, and you can find some exclusive ones at Shairs Crows Nest on the web. Check her out. We also carry toaster covers, blender covers along with water covers and bagholder dolls. 

The Santas are coming along with some new editions to Raggedyrhondas and you can see these when they air here or check out facebook for raggedyrhondas. We hope you will join us there. 

We are running a donation site for help with Sandy Schmidt of the Old Country Cupboard who recently had surgery and is now waiting news on a cancer report. Sandy is in remission at the point from stage 4 lymphoma, we wish her the best and pray for healing for her.

  So many new things have happened since my last post. 

We lost a dear friend and we will never be the same.  I do not think I have ever met anyone so dear and sweet as Sandy. Her heart was like an angel.  She was loved by so many and adored by her family and friends.  She leaves behind her dear sweet husband, daughter, son in law and grand baby.  She got one wish before she left us and that was to hold her sweet little grand daughter. Thank you Lord for the blessings you give us all as we are not promised tomorrow. 

In Memory of Sandy Schmidt
With every sunrise and every sunset you are remembered for the light you brought into this world.  We miss you and know that you are flying high with the angels now.

Thanksgiving is here and I am giving thanks to all things.  With black friday shopping right around the corner, the question is do you shop black friday? I don't ~ I stay home and enjoy the peacefulness and enjoy decorating my home for the holidays with my kids. Always fun getting things from the attic and letting the children look thru to find what we want to put here and there. 
You will find me on Facebook now selling in the groups and on my raggedyrhondas facebook pages.  I still sell on ebay but with the prices of ebay and the final value fees and all the fees they have going on ~ I think 2013  will bring major changes to my site.
I love selling on Etsy and you can find me at Raggedyrhondas on Etsy 
I hope you will drop by and check out the shop. I am missing something you would like to see. Drop me a note and let me know.  I am also sewing custom made dolls from raggedyrhondas patterns or anyones patterns if you find something you like, let me know. I can sew it for you. Always remembering to give others credit for their designs.
Have a fun Thanksgiving and enjoy the day with family and friends.  Drop by and say hello. Stay safe over the shopping holidays and take time to be thankful to others.
