And this photo features one of my favorite Christmas prezzies, too - my very own mannequin! It's brand new rather than vintage, but mom and I have plans to 'vintage' it up ourselves courtesy of a Romantic Homes magazine example.
A close up of the little poodle at a bit of an angle:
It's made with glass beads and twisted silver wire, strung on a matching organza ribbon. So pretty! I can also make these with real pearls and in many different colors so if anyone would like to commission one, just let me know!
And as for the Macaron Craze - I seem to be joining it. Not by eating them or making them, but by seeing them everywhere - here's a store that sells them as jewelry. You can get a necklace (as seen here) or smaller versions as earrings or a ring or even a bag charm. How funny!
I'm not quite sure I'd want to wear something that looks so much like a real food - hungry people might try to eat them. lol
