As Denise makes her move to the East Coast & my girls and I travel to the Mexican Coast, we're excited to see where our next chapters take us & look forward to finding & creating fun pieces along the way.........

|Playing around with angel wings & an antique birdcage I painted pink. |
This was a fairly easy assemblage,
the legs & arms have wire hooks that easily hooked onto the wires of the cage.
|After just a couple of hours of 'playing' we're tickled pink on how she evolved. |
That's a vintage baby's cup holding the nest inside.
You never know what you may end up using and that's why Denise loves
to save Everything!- SOLD Feb 2014-
|This cutie had a sweet wig of pigtails, we wanted her eyes to stay closed but every once and awhile, |
when you'd least expect it, they'd pop open!
|Denise created the final crown & nest touches with vintage porcelain flowers in her vine & |
a plump little bird friend to keep her company- SOLD Feb 2014-
|Denise liked this cutie bald, but I liked a piece sheep's wool that we hand dyed for a hair-do.|
She has a special something inside of her box & I intentionally glued the lid closed, it's a secret between the two of us
|She has a bit of a little red head rascal look to her. She has a candy tin body and a headband made from |
an old metal frame, bottle cap & lamp finial
|You see these souvenir dolls often at thrift stores and yard sales. |
This one with his little bald spot & gold sequined suit just called out to me.
I added a large vintage tin heart from Mexico, newer stampings (the heart & flower) and an old sterling
silver rosary I got on my last trip to Mexico City.
|A little Steampunk inspired Infant of Prague- SOLD Oct 2013-|
|Assembled Vintage Teapot Girl- SOLD 2014-|
|One of my favorite Denise creations! She created this custom vintage crochet, floral and ribbon hat to cover|
her strawberry blonde stubble hair. She added ribbon to her sweet dress & placed her riding this gorgeous swan that
she painted and crowned. A really beautiful custom piece- SOLD 2013-
|I enjoyed making these boxes, again with vintage souvenir dolls, old postcards, stamps & mixed media|
|She's an old Spanish sleepy eyed souvenir doll assembled in an old cigar box.|
