I love Spring and All It Brings

I'm so glad its Spring again. Winters down here are so drab.
Here are just a few pictures I have of this new begining.

What is this mess going to be?
   Its going to be my latest theater doll...called Rose Bertin and Marie.
Rose Bertin was not only Marie Antoinettes friend, She was also Marie's Milliner. She also set alot of fashion trends. She was always known for carrying a hat box.

 I know this post  is so unlike me . Please forgive me. I'm creating ,but can't seem to do a decent post. I am brain we say down here in the South.
    I'm always happy to recieve comments and I will answer each and every one of you. You all mean the world to me.
                            HAPPY EASTER!!!
May God Bless and Keep You,
                               Hugs and Kisses,
                      Marie Antionette

  2. Oooooh so much lovely things today! Your beautiful bird AND a new doll creature!! I lurve it! Have a blessed week and upcoming holiday week.

  3. Dear Marie, I love love love the white peacocks! Did you take those pictures? Where is the park?

    As with all your dolls, I love this theatre doll. I think you just get better and better . That bird on her hat is a surprising but fabulous touch. And the chandelier is very convincing. Everything is gorgeous. Sometimes a picture says a 1000 words and yours certainly do . So don't worry about how the post is different. Your creations will always be essentially you :).

    Have a great Sunday!

  4. Thanks Marie!!
    Happy Easter to you!!

  5. Hi Marie! I do believe each and every theater gets better and better. The colors on this one...oh my. Some time when you have the time I would love to get an email from you telling me about your peacocks. Are they hard to keep? Where do they sleep at night? Do they have predators. How do they do in the winter? :) Happy Easter and a wonderful week.

  6. Hi My Dear Marie,
    Your yard is simply gorgeous and the peacocks are beautiful. I love the white color. How glorious to walk on your property and see these beauties.

    I simply love your new doll. My gosh you create such divine works every time you design.
    The color of this is beautiful. I love hearing the info about Marie's friend too.

    I hope you are feeling good and your brother coming along well since his transplant. You are always in my prayers sweet friend.
    Talk to you soon and till then, have a wonderful and blessed Easter with your family.
    Love to you,
    Celestina Marie

  7. Marie,

    Your white peacocks are truly beautiful as is your Rose Bertin and Marie doll. What a wonderful idea for a doll theater.

    I hope you and your brother are doing well.

    Wishing you and your family a Blessed and Happy Easter.

    Thank you for sharing... Happy Easter!

  10. Hi Marie Antoinette,

    Wishing you and your family a happy Easter.
    I loved seeing the photos around your yard and the white peacock is gorgeous.
    Also your dolls that you are creating are so pretty.

    Hugs & blessings

  11. Hi Marie,

    You asked about our olive trees, they are about 5 years old and have been producing well about the past two years. If you have a young tree, remove all the little olive buds before they form and then that will make the tree better, for future years. Hope yours start producing soon.

    Happy new week

  12. Hello! Or should I say BONJOUR!!! Thanks for visiting me : ) Oh my, your Theater Dolls are absolutely amazing!!!!! Such wondrous detail and beauty. I recently made a Marie Antoinette (faux) cake for a friends birthday gift.

    The clothes Marie wore were gorgeous, but I'm thankful for jeans and t-shirts and no corsets....

    I've never seen a white peacock, wow!!!
