The New Spring Collection

I'm not sure what my fascination with old glass bottles is all about, but I have one!!!

My latest creation was this little Alice, last Spring.

I have a whole collection just waiting to be dressed up and put into my Etsy Shop, when I re-open again one of these days.

These last two I sold in my shop a couple of years ago.

Have a wonderful Easter. : )

Another Wedding Dress

A bustle, that is!! This beautiful bride asked for help with her loooooong bridal train.

Hi Margie!!! Tell "Mr. T" thanks for loaning you to me all those hours we worked on this project.

Margie did lots of research online and came up with this idea, below.

We covered some buttons we got in the notions section at JoAnn's.
I crocheted these loops with heavy cotton thread.
And reinforced the loops underneath, so they wouldn't tear the netting.

This was a lot of fabric to manage, but we were so happy our plan worked. Thanks, sweet friend, for helping me!!! I couldn't have done it without you.

A Little Crown For Easter

How cute is this little chick????
But as usual, I couldn't leave well enough alone!!!!! So, here we go...

I love this little glitter tray from Michael's. It Makes putting back all that glitter, a snap!


This picture (below) is the one I texted my daughter last night. She told me she couldn't stop laughing! Hee-hee!!
