The Window

I love the spinner ornaments, my grandmother had them on her tree. Thanks to eBay you can now buy back your childhood.

I love our picture window. It's the best part of the house.

Green Gill Mushroom. NO GOOD TO EAT!

I found a lovely group of mushrooms by the side of the road next to a corn field. Alas, it is the nasty Green Gill, and it is not edible. It's so pretty but don't let that fool you. We thought it was a Shaggy Parasol, which is edible. But the spore print was green, the sure sign of a toxic Green Gill. I have had no time to hunt and clean the house, my first term paper is due next week and it is to be written in French. This weekend will be consumed with that, helas!!! (alas)

A gingham dress

Before I let my child cut her hair I took her picture with a new camera I hardly knew how to use. I regret not getting more photos of her in this dress with her glorious hair. Time flies so quickly when you become a mother. Keep still the moments like this one. This one is a keeper.

Paper Dress such a mess

Here she lays in a chocolate box. Her little dress is frayed, limbs dangle from threads. I love her still.

Taking Tea barefoot in the Garden

Hello all! Yes it's a festive July! I didn't make any Christmas things, I just couldn't get in the mood. I do have a country embroidered primitive style pin keeper and a brand new chick pin, and a pretty penny doll purse. The purse is an antique beaded one, and the penny dolly has a tiny reticule with a teensy chain handle. So tomorrow, July 10th, come see all my new goodies on PFATT Marketplace!
Here's the link:

Tiny China

I don't shy away from a damsel in distress. Wearing her tatters she is a wee delight. Some would prefer her to be perfect, but we all have our flaws. Like the velveteen rabbit, this is what makes her real to me. Her life was not easy. Like the pioneer girl in whose pocket she tarried, she was a traveler. The stains of play decorate her child made garment, proving this: Her destiny was fulfilled. She was dropped, but loved, and thus picked up again, rescued, saved. And now she is mine.

Sneak PEEK!

This my hard working student from Bolivia, with whom I spent the last 4 months at school. As you can see Viviana doesn't shy away from hard work! That's Kiddo, a retired dressage horse. He has lost his topline, I don't ride him much anymore. But he's still handsome.
This penny dolly will be on PFATT Marketplace's next update!

~ Available~ $195 includes priority shipping
Here they are the happy couple. My first penny wooden bride and groom.
Come and see all my new things on Wednesday the 10th. I will be at school in the morning so I will answer emails in the order I receive them.

Happy Mother's Day

This lovely Mother Daughter vignette is from a very early daguerrotype. It dates to before the civil war. I took the image and stitched it to this sewing pocket available on my PFATT Marketplace for May. The little owl is there too.

It measures 8 by 6 not including the pocket, and the penny doll has jointed arms, and is 4.45" tall. Email me to purchase! OOPs, this one is SOLD, email me for orders.

I wish you could smell these! Its smells like heaven.

A winter evening

The door of my studio to the wrap around porch has been decorated with etched glass that ressembles battenburg lace. It's so pretty at night.

This gold leaf transfer on the door of the clock case is one of my favorite things, and was a lucky ebay find, several years ago. It came fitted with shelves, so I have tucked tiny treasures inside. But I really want to remove and reconfigure the shelves so that the top space showcases a single very special dolly.

Can you guess what I am making here?
More penny woodens are on the way. I'm tinkering and carving, beading and stitching. The painting and aging are done.
