Twin Vintage Dolls

These vintage beauties caught my eye a while back.
They were both at the same antique shop
and one wore the gown (although dirty and needing mending)
and the other had a not so pretty outfit.

The first thing I did was to make them undergarments
from vintage lace

At a flea market shop I found a blouse
that was very large and faded but had lovely beaded sleeves.
~ Ta-Da! ~
The elastic end went around the wrists....
I took a seam to make it smaller and hemmed the other end.
T W I N S!!!

From a small fur collar I made two stoles
~ Playing dress up is fun when you have a twin ~

A New Fairy Garden

I designed a new fairy garden for the front yard

The fairies are quite pleased

As is the miniature swan and her babies

The bunnies feel right at home

I made the house and rock fences last year
and had everything else from another garden.
The box was a request to my husband as a birthday gift.
{Not my only gift .... but a wood box did bring me much delight!}

The neighbor girls have already begun getting fairy mail
and love to re-arrange the fairies and animals.

... and so do I ...

A Favorite Color

And So Fun When it's Rainboots!
{ and even nicer when it's not actually raining and can be used for flowers }

Sharing some of my Spring and Easter decor

I found this crown at a thrift store for $4, and have seen it in
fancy shops for $100.  What a steal!

{one can never have too many crowns you know }

I am so wanting to get some new plants in the ground
and into the fairy garden.

Oh the joys of Spring!
