I simple adore Marie Antoinette - I cannot wait to walk through Versaille in April - I'm having visions of gardens and her Petite Trianon - it hasn't hit me yet, I'm really going to France.
Needless to say, I've been inspired to create more Marie items. The hair, the gowns, the shoes, the colors, I have a sincere romance with her and her style. Most days we throw on our jeans and a t-shirt, can you even imagine how long it took Marie to get dressed? Gotta love it.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful and creative weekend xoxoxoxo Rhonda
Once I saw this gorgeous image from The Graphics Fairy - I knew I would love to create with it. Adding 3 different crocheted laces and trims, I covered a 4.25 inch round wood box and filled it with doilies and a rhinestone crown pin.
Thank you Karen from The Graphics Fairy, you made this Parisgal very happy!
Using my laces from France and French words on cardstock, I created flowing ribbons mixed with a pendant dangling from a necklace chain - for your art, for your lampshade, for your door handle - for anywhere you see fit. You can even wear the pendant as a necklace.
My fingers were busy this past weekend.....now I have some blog reading to catch up on.
Ooh La La, my new altered bottles.....I spent a glorious day embellishing my antique and vintage bottles.......pulling all the laces, labels, rhinestones, pearls, buttons and ribbons.....making sure everything looked just right.
My table looked like this all day for the sunlight to provide the natural light for the photo shoot. I must have taken over 100 photos.
It was a fabulous day that provided me hours of pleasure. I will keep creating these bottles until the basket is empty........
This month's giveaway is one of my crocheted lace covered antique bottles. These sold out immediately last year, when I listed them in my shop. I've re-stocked my antique bottle supply - so get ready for more to be listed this weekend. Take a deep breath Rosemary......for I have a bottle with your name already on it.
Good Luck Everyone and if you want a chance to win this bottle - all you have to do is leave a comment. That's it. If you would like to post something about it on your blog, I'd be delighted.
Winner is chosen by a simple name drawing from a box. It is my way of thanking the best bloggers I know of. A lot of my good friends tell me they read my blog, they keep up with my posts but don't blog themselves - therefore they never leave a comment. I thank you ladies, as well. I know you are out there.
Winner to be announced - February 14th - Valentine's Day - how sweet is that?
Have a fabulous day and weekend - I'll be happily creating bottles filled with love potion for Cupid to deliver. Cheers, Rhonda
