And, that's a heck of a lot of Turquoise!
My absolute favorite Blog is HOUSE OF TURQUOISE. Each day this visual treat arrives via e-mail and I scan down the page with glee. Sounds corny, but it is glee. So, I decided to search my house for any sign of turquoise; here's what I came up with...

I love paper and of late I've been making beautiful paper flowers and altering the German crepe paper that I use for my Folk Couture Dolls .http://www.folkcouture.blogspot.com/ The flowers have found their way onto branches and then into bouquets. And I pair them with a charming message and they become a gift.
And the Crepe Paper for the dolls has been bleached or dipped in a color bath or drenched in water and then air-dried. The process alters the texture and this new paper allows me to drape and shape with abandon. Here are some photos of my latest Folk Couture Dolls.
And, I finally found a frame that holds each doll and shows them off beautifully. So if you know of a gallery or a beautiful shoppe that might be a good fit for my dolls, please let me know!

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE SECOND-HAND SHOPPING...and I have found a favorite haunt. Everytime I go, there is always something amazing. And, of course, if it fits in my SUV and there's room in the manse, I rarely pass it up. Here are my latest finds...
I saw this Rattan Peacock Chair a full week before it dawned on me that I did have room for it...somewhere; and it did fit into the SUV; and it wasn't too difficult schleping it up 3 flights of stairs.
There's more... I fell in love with this fruit bowl. It's bold and says exactly what it is.
Wood. Don't Eat Me!
And, this lovely table seemed to pull it all together...

I looked around my house and realized that there were birds everywhere - tucked onto a dolls turban, plunked onto a tabletop, captured on a charming painted tin plate. So I thought I would share them all with you. Here are my flights of fancy...
