Alice in Wonderland, Parisian Images and Sheep, Oh My!

Okay, so another Etsy Update. First off, I made another pair of Alice in Wonderland images like the one I gave away at the Mad Tea Party.

Only it sold SUPER fast - like within an hour or so and it is already in the mail today. I'm dizzy! So, I decided since they are so popular I'd make just one more set. The picture above is the set that is going up in my store today. Grab it while you can. SOLD AGAIN - More to come (9/9/11).

Then, as I was making the above set I decided to try a different Alice in Wonderland series...


This one has Alice and the White Rabbit, but also a pretty little dress for Alice and a pocket watch like the White Rabbit has in the beginning of the tale. Cute, huh?

At least I think so. Love this particular set!! I love the rabbit and his little watch. These would be sooo cute framed in a grouping in a girl's bedroom or in an office, studio, etc. Also great for Scrapbooking, etc.

And since I was on a roll I decided to make one more set to sell - this time French to go with the French text...


There is an Eiffel Tower, a Napoleonic chair, a Fleur de Lis and a Phrenology chart - just because. :)


So cute! And these will all be up in my shop by the end of the day. I also put up my last Sheep Canvas...

I have no more canvases to paint on so I better try and find some more. These are really high quality canvases that I get at the art supply store rather than a crafting store since those canvases tend to have staples on the sides and not look as nice. The ones I use are smooth with a bit of heft to them as they are well made with good canvas and wood. Check out the listing for an image of the back. I use only the best quality supplies.

And that's all for now. I'm melting today and it is only going to be hotter tomorrow. Remind me again why I love summer so much? LOL

Feeling Rather English

I just thought I'd share a few things English that I'm enjoying lately. First up the silhouettes in the last post were in two different treasury lists recently. Thank you to those who added my silhouettes to such lovely lists. First was A Regency Wedding. This lace collar is reserved for another customer, but I would love to have one of my own...

The Summer at Bath treasury list had so many beautiful items, I think this one is my favorite, though...

What a lovely hat! And the rest of her dress is so pretty, too! Matti's Millinery & Costumes has lots of amazing costumes listed - I'm drooling!

And of course we all know the final Harry Potter movie came out on Friday. I've seen it twice already. LOL Anyone want to go with me to see it again? I'm ready! I love Alan Rickman and he was so good in this movie I think he deserves an Oscar!

I found this box of candy at Target when the last movie came out and thought it looked JUST like the kind of candy they'd sell at Honeydukes, don't you??

Just look at the Ginger man! He kinda looks like the bottom of a Mandrake...or like JK Rowling describes the garden gnomes looking like - these would fit right in! :) The actual box is smaller than the picture - really cute.

Heatwave and Etsywave...

It's been a couple of scorcher days! In the 100's here and heat index usually like 115 - whew!! I'm laying low inside, but still being productive. Just a quick post to let you guys know there are new framed silhouettes in the shop.

First - I sold my larger oval silhouettes awhile ago (even my own personal one off my hallway wall) so I got two more frames and decided to sell a pair for the first time in these beautiful larger black frames...

The larger frames allow me to use the larger silhouettes and also for you to see more of the background - in this case the beautiful antique music paper. They are very dramatic on the wall - so pretty! I don't care if they sell, really, as I want them to hang on my own wall and I don't have any more frames to make my own at the moment. :)

And due to popular demand - the smaller antique white square frames are back. These sold out SUPER fast last time and I only have these two sets left so grab them while you can!

One on vintage French book paper.

And one set on music paper. For more pictures (and bigger, better detailed ones), please see my shop!!

Thankfully a storm has cleared the hot weather for the next two days so hopefully I can get a few more things done. Hope you all are safe from the heat!

New Silhouettes in shop...

I've got some new silhouettes up in the shop. They are just too cute in these oval frames...

I think this pair reminds me most of Elinor and Edward in Sense and Sensibility...

The great thing about these are the really nice frames. I've sold two sets so far. The oval silhouettes are available HERE.

But sometimes a different shape can be fun, too - I found these super cute square frames and decided to try them.


I love the antique feel of these frames. Very romantic. They are a soft white and antiqued for a vintage feel. Silhouettes available HERE.

SOLD Super Fast!

Very nice frames, indeed.

I only have the one pair of square frames. I think I need to try and find some more. ;)

ETA: Thanks so much to everyone who has been shopping at my store lately!!

Happy Wednesday!

A Beautiful Necklace - Native American Fetish and Heshi Beads

My mother has always had a necklace I coveted. A beautiful Native American Fetish and Heshi bead necklace. For years she said she'd make one for me and a few weeks ago I finally got one!

We've collected quite a few of the carved animal beads over the years, but I picked out a few of my favorites to string up. Among the animals represented are: fish, armadillo, turtle, rabbit, bear, fox, wolf and a black rooster. At the center is a large white dove.

A few detail pics...

Just wanted to share my pretty new necklace with you. Have a great weekend!! It's a three day weekend with the 4th of July and we have a very hot weather forecast - 107 degree heat index tomorrow - whew!

Hopefully we'll get to have some BBQ and maybe see some fireworks. Don't forget that you have until Friday to enter the giveaway in my tea party post below.
