Welcome to our Team Blog! Marie Antoinette & Edie Marie have joined together to create a fun place to share our ideas and lives with all of you. We know that our teaming up has been confusing for some of you and we apologize. We will refer to ourselves as Marie Antoinette (the Doll Creator & maker of fabulous items) who lives in Peacock Paradise and Edie Marie (the creator of the posts and story telling on this blog & amateur crafter of many things in my "attic") who lives on Golden Pond. What great fun we have combining our forces!!

Thank you for stopping by to see what's happening in our studios in Peacock Paradise and on Golden Pond!

Hooray! I've Been Awarded AND Tagged!

I was tagged by Edie Marie of Edie Marie's Attic, AND I'm honored to have been given the Arte Y Pico Award by Rebecca of the Ladies' Historical Tea Society!

So i'll hand out my nominations for both the tag and the award...

~~~ 7 Song Tag ~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is the tag. List 7 songs you are into right now. No matter what genre, whether they have words, or even if they are not any good, but they must be songs you are really into right now, shaping your summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

Here's my 7 songs:
1) All Alone am I by Brenda Lee
2) Young at Heart by Connie Francis
3) Let Me Go, Lover by Joan Webber
4) Faded Love by Patsy Cline
5) The Little Cloud the Cried by Johnny Ray
6) I'm Sorry by The Platters
7) Honesty by Billy Joel

Next, the Arte Y Pico Award...

The rules to follow with this award are:

1) Choose five blogs that you consider deserving of this awardfor their creativity, design, interesting material, and contributionto the blogging community, no matter what language.

2) Post the author and link to each award winning blog.

3) Each award winner posts the award and the name and link tothe blog of the award presenter.

4) The award winner and one who has given the prize should postthe link of "Arte y Pico" blog, the origin to this award.

(P.S.)- I don't really know 5 folks that haven't gotten the award OR the Song Tag yet, so i'll just nominate a few... I do know that just about all of you have gotten similar awards/tags- so if you already have one, or too many, then just take my well wishes and good intentions.

That being said, I nominate:
My Petite Maison


Tatting Chic

China,Chintz and Roses

My Vintage Studio

Once again, if you already have either of these, I understand. HUGS!
