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!!

Pea Green with Envy!

I've been busy in my studio 
creating my latest Theater Doll. 
She was so much fun to make!

She's my Baroque Theater Doll.  
I dressed her in a beautiful satiny 
green, light blue and pale mauve 
striped fabric that has a bit of 
shimmer in the light.

She carries a candelabra to light the way.  

Her skirt opens up to a scene of... 
is it Marie and Louie? 

She holds a candelabra to light the way also.

Are they waiting together while the 
Palace at Versailles is stormed by the 
French Peoples Revolutionaries? 

Or is it a young couple in their sitting room 
ready to enjoy some gentle harp music?  

You decide. 

The theater is your story to tell. 

I thought you'd enjoy the detailing on 
her hat. I love creating these tiny treasures. 

The Baroque Theater Doll 
can be found on my Etsy Shop, 
Marie Antionette. Take a look at 
my theatre dolls and my 
Paper Dolls. 
Here's some new Paper Dolls I've 
 added recently to my Etsy


Things could have gone better with Coke!


I received a special surprise 
in the mail the other day! 
Carmen Willis,
whose Marie Antoinette Shoe I received in 
the Shoe Swap several months ago,
sent me Lavender from her own garden. 
A lovely bouquet of it and a Lavender Wand 
that she made herself, a work of art!  

She even sent me a beautiful sachet filled 
with lavender and mint that she grew herself. 

Thank you for such a sweet gift Carmen! 
It was such a wonderful surprise!!


Well that's it for now my friends. 
Back to the studio for more 
fun creating!! 


This post written for Marie by "Edie". 

Next time Edie will tell you about 
her visit to the Summer Kitchen Girls 
in Helena, Ohio.
