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!

Fabulous Daaaling, Simply Fabulous!

I have some beautiful things to show 
you today! 

I have a new t-shirt that I created and 
would like to share with you. 
It involves my favorite lady icon of course, 
Marie Antoinette! 

I came across this picture of Marie 
for a Coke ad and thought it would 
be perfect on a shirt. 

WOULD things have gone better with Coke?? 
Well they couldn't have gone any worse.

I just LOVE how it turned out. 
It's kinda "casual chic"! 

And I just bet you spied the 
most gorgeous brooch ever 
on my new shirt... 

a birthday gift from Julie Marie 
@ Idyllehours. Julie is such a dear friend  
and it was so sweet of her to send me 
this gorgeous pin! 
Thank you so much Julie! 

I've been busy in my studio. 
You KNOW it's been way too hot in the 
south to do only the necessities outdoors. 
So I've taken some time to create a 
new Theater Doll... 
The Peacock Theater Doll. 

I had so much fun designing and making her!  
She's holding a birdcage in one hand
(which contains a tiny nest and eggs 
and has an itty bitty key dangling from it) 
and her other hand holds up her dress 
and the peacock fan made of very 
small peacock feathers.

The "Theater" scene mimics  the 
doll and is full of beautiful scenery 
thanks to Rhonda of Rhonda's Originals

I had so much fun designing her hat, 
complete with a peacock peering out!  
You can also see her tiny cameo necklace.

Here's a glance at the back of her gown. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my 
newest doll. She'll be going on sale 
on my Marie Antionette Etsy.

Stay cool my darlin's 
and have yourself a great week! 


Hi sweet friends, Edie here! 

Just wanted you to see a cute pic of 
Marie at her computer...
