Here is one of my theater dolls that is a little bit different than the others. This Christmas theater doll has a panoramic view inside. The gown is of velvet and gold glitter snowflakes printed on it.She is holding a wooden doll. Its not on this picture, but I added a Christmas tag. So you would know that it is a doll not a baby. LOL...She has a smart little hat and a very pretty cape.
This is the inside of the curtain. Sorry about the glare. I made a panoramia print that wraps around the plaques and attaches to the colums that hold up the entire vignette. This print is elves in Santas workshop,putting up toys. I have a chandelier in the middle, shinning light upon Santa sitting in his chair,looking at the world Globe.The statue I udes for this ,is an Enestos figurine called Guidense. I think it was made in the late 90's. I have it sitting on a rug that I made. The panoramic view gives it a three deminal look. I t so different in person to view.
Again newbies to my blog. These are stocking wall hangs. This is how I make them. I buy Christmas prints that I know I will enjoy repainting with glitter paint. I repaint the whole thing which is about 36 inches long. I then cut a backing and batting , sew it up, put lace or whatever I think will be pretty to decorate it . In the certain lights,it winkles sparkles and just pretty to look at. I will be puting these and more in my Etst shop. I have other on Filckr, if you want to see how they all look.
I recently recieved these pictures of my best friend (no longer with us) Shannon and me dating back to 1966, yes 66. Butch, Shannon's sweet hubby, thought I might like to have them. He told me he found them in an old box. Butch is just now able to go though her personal things, like pictures and such. He gave me the pictures of Shannon that are below, and now these. Anyway I don't remember at all painting our faces up like this, for I never did go into doing that sort of thing. I guess she talked me into it somehow.
Shannon and I are ready to hit the teen scene. Also I really don't remember where we were going. I think maybe to see Black Oak Arkansas. That is the only thing i can come up with.They are from New Orleans, and were popular at that time.
It has been raining here every day. I feel so bad for the people of Atlanta Georgia. I pray for you all. May God Bless you and keep you as safe as possible. My heart goes out to you all.
Anyway,I thought since I had to use my cool umbrella,I might as well show you all a picture of it.It was given to me by a close friend. Its very very big, and has pictures of old screen stars on it.Clarke Cable, Elizabeth Taylor,Jimmy Stewart,and I think Greta Garbo.
I want to thank all of you for stopping by and celabrating my first year in blogland. I've made alot of friends and hope to make more. I want to thank those who suported me and prayed for me when I get my ills. As you know I won't let any illness keep me down for long. Ya'll make me want to keep fighting, and as you know I'm a fighter. May God bless you all.
