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!!

Merry Christmas !!! And We Have A Winner!!!

Merry Christmas my wonderful blog friends!!!
   We are going to make this a wonderful Christmas...arn't we. Yes we are.
I'm so excited. Its been a rough year for some of us, but I'm full of hope and I'm passing it on to you...cause I loves you a bunch.
Ok, we have a winner of my Christmas give away. I just put your names in a hat and picked one.We did not have too many entries, but that gave you more chances. So the winner is:
   Anita of Castles Crowns and Cottages!!! Congrats Anita!!!
Anita is a lovely lady.
 Here is a couple of things I've made.They are both Tree Angels. One is Marie Antoinette.I've made one kind of like this one.But they are different. The other is just an Angel, but very pretty.

Friends I'm going though several test this month,so this is going to be very short.I'll look forward to your comments and will try to visit all of you.
 I'm going to leave you with the link to my Christmas Village. I know some of you always love to visit it at this time. Due to my test ...I will not be putting it up this year. But I figured it will be more exciting next year.
     Here is the video- click on it to get the full effect!

I wish all of you the greatest of holidays.Lets keep Christ in our hearts, and in Christmas. This is his birthday.
   Merry Christmas to all and as I always say May God bless you.
