My Alice in Wonderland Dolls are now being Represented by a Gallery!!!!!!

I am so excited that I can hardly stand it! A week or so ago, I was contacted by Susan of Art and Soul Gallery Inc. She let me know she was interested in selling my Alice in Wonderland dolls and houses in her gallery. I couldn't believe it and was so excited! If you are interested in purchasing any of the dolls with their homes, you can contact her at:

817 238th St SE
Bothell, WA 98021

She also sells beautiful altered art objects, glass art and fine art. Her shop looks gorgeous!!!! You can see a few pictures and read more about her gallery here: Art and Soul Gallery, Inc. I am listing the pictures of the dolls and their houses and tags above. The Cheshire Cat has TWO faces, one on each side. Unfortunately, I am not a great picture taker. Some of the houses actually have flowers on their sides and backs too, but these didn't show in the pics.

Marie Hamlet Inspired Cuff

I made this beautiful cuff for a Marie Antoinette Hamlet inspired cuff swap. The materials needed to be mostly natural and to be in light colors. I think my partner will enjoy this. I know I loved creating it! It is constructed of vintage lace; vintage eyelet cotton flounce (lace is 1930's and the cotton flounce is Edwardian); a hand dyed silk ribbon flower, made by me; vintage embroidered cotton motifs from an Edwardian table cloth; french jacquard ribbon for the backing; a vintage wooden button, probably Edwardian and vintage gold elastic for the button closure. All hand sewn with linen colored cotton thread. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Gift

A week or so ago, I received a beautiful gift in the mail from Terri Lynn Heinz. She just wanted to thank me for running the Marie Antoinette site. She is one of my fearless helpers who has been so precious to me! Thank you Terri Lynn for the beautiful gift and for your help! Be sure to visit her GORGEOUS blog where she is doing a lovely birthday giveaway!!! You can see her and her work here: Artful Affirmations
The gift you ask? Well, it is a stunning bracelet all in pinks and antique favorites! It fits perfectly and is so wonderful to wear! I feel like a fairy queen when I have it tinkles delightfully and has such a nice, weighty feel.

Marie and Roses

Yesterday and today I voyaged across the Atlantic to visit the rose gardens of Versailles...of course in dream land, it is always just whatever season one desires! There I found beautiful crowned birds, jeweled butterflies, "stained glass" roses made of crepe paper and Marie dancing behind some particularly fetching roses. Enjoy! The following are 4 x4 book pages for a Marie's Favorite Flower 4 x 4 book swap I am in, hosted by my dear friend and fellow Marie supplicant, Rhonda Thomas. She is hosting this swap at our Marie site, but she also has a beautiful blog! Check it out at: Rhonda Thomas
