"MISS SPRING FAIRY"
 

THIS PAPER MACHE DRESS FORM WAS DESIGNED WITH A SPRING EUROPEAN
GARDEN IN MIND. FIRST I GLAZED THE BODY WITH ANTIQUE GOLD PAINT.  THEN
I COVERED IT WITH  SILK EMBROIDED DESIGNER FABRIC.  I EMBELLISHED THE
NECK WITH CROCHET LACE WITH A FLOWER JEWEL IN CENTER.  I APPLIED SILK
LEAVES UP THE SIDE OF THE HEM AND ADDED GOLD SPARKLE WASABI TAPE AT
THE BOTTOM. 

SHE NEEDED A LITTLE BLING, SO I TIED A MUSLIN RIBBON AROUND HER WAIST
WITH A PAPER FLOWER WITH SEQUIN CENTER.  BEFORE I WORKED ON THE BACK,
I ADDED BUTTERFLIES AND A FEW BIRD STYLE CHARMS. 

ON THE BACK I BUSTLED THE BACK WITH SHEER GOLD SPARKLE TULLE AND LACE
ADDING SOME ANTIQUE  STARS AND PEARL JEWELS FROM MY OWN INVENTORY.
TO COMPLETE "MY SPRING FAIRY" I ADDED GLITTERED WINGS THAT WAS ONCE
A CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT ON MY VERY OWN TREE. 




 
 
I REALLY HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOURSELF!!!
LOVE AND PEACE
MILISSA

VINTAGE LACE NOTEBOOK

Well I have been thinking about a project like this for some time.  Finally today, while I was making some other samples to show for a possible order,  I decided to give it a go. 

I love the way it came out.  So much fun and I enjoyed going through some old stock I had as well as
some new purchases just waiting to be used.  I think this maybe gifts for family and friends for the holiday season 2013. 

MY TENDER TOKEN

Today im posting a few of my favorite coffetable books which I
refer to when I need some inspirations.

TUESDAY'S TENDER TOKEN WEEK #2

Today I'm posting a special piece of original  art work created by Robert Sexton -
An American Romantic.  I purchased this for my husband on our anniversary one
year.  I treasure this piece not only for the wonderful poem  but also because of the
talent by Robert Sexton who composed the image entirely of dots of ink with a
quill pen.  This purchase will hang in my home forever and truly be dear to me
for years to come.
