Beautiful, Mary !

Brimfield, MA Tornado Relief

Speaking of the Brimfield Fair in Brimfield, Mass., on my way there, I saw the horrible after effects of the June tornado. If you would like to see photos and donate to the recovery, the website is...   The  tornado went right behind Old Strubridge Village. Thank goodness it wasn't harmed. If you don't know what OSV is, you are in for a historical treat...

Tornadoes are very unusual for New England, so we really freak out when we get a warning on TV that one may be hitting us.

Handmade Dolls Coming !

I found some fabulous vintage lace, vintage chandelier crystals and vintage clothespins at Brimfield Fair back in July. My goodies inspired me to get away from the computer and make some things with my hands !

See my "Dolls Made By Me " Section in my etsy shop. She would be lovely on top of a wrapped bridal shower gift.  This clothespin doll has a vintage tulle bridal veil and handpainted ballet slippers on the clothespin. More pix are in the listing.

COMING SOON: I will start designing some new Halloween characters.

New Things Coming Just For YOU !

I have been working on lots of NEW THINGS...
and I never know what will get finished first.

I have two new Marie PARADE CHARACTERS just about ready to be photographed.

Also I have two articulated MARIE PAPER DOLL TORSOS. You add the skirt using whatever materials you wish! Vintage lace, sewing pattern tissue, paper napkins, junk mail, whatever !

I am also working on some Paris and French ATC COLLAGE SHEETS featuring pretend postage stamps with various French images on them. So much fun to design.
