These two atc's are for the mermaid swap, using an old map that I got off of ebay. I used a little netting from a vintage hat too. And of course, they had to have seashell bras!
The last piece is Sabrina's first atc. She used a sea shell too. Well, bye for now!

Next is my newest doll hat over at Etsy! This little chapeau is done in pink and cream. The base for this hat was like a criss-cross diamond shapes. I let the points of those peek out and added little flowers to the tips of the points. Hope you like it! Bye for now!

My first bit of news is that I have a new collage on Etsy called "Hope Springs Eternal". I found a photo postcard at the thrift store and couldn't wait to play with it. This is what I came up with.
Next, I also have this little doll hat I made, that I showed you on a past blog. Finally decided to try and sell it. If it does, will try and make some more.
Also, on Etsy, I lowered the price of the little tooth fairy boxes. Would love to see these go to some sweet toothless children!
Lastly, I moved these two fairies below, from Etsy to Ebay for a 7 day auction. They won't be listed again, so last call on these! Bye for now!

Next is my pink collection with hat and flowers. Below is the black collection with hats, flowers and feathers. Everything was found at thrift stores, estate sales and antique stores. Hats and vintage flowers are one of my favorite things, they are so feminine. And all about dressing up. But they are so decorative too! I know they are supposed to be kept in hat boxes, but that would be criminal not to be able to view them everyday! Bye for now!

On the top shelf is the tea set Mom gave me. The next shelf has a milk glass pitcher from Mom, a crystal decanter from our wedding, and some blue transferware pieces. The bottom shelf holds my brown transferware, vases, a milkglass bowl and tureens.
I had lots of fun decorating the top too.
This is a sweet little doll I found in the basement of an antique store in North Dakota. Only $1.50! I will be posting pix of more things from Mom's and the antique store, so till then, bye for now!
