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!

There's a New Etsy Shoppe In Town!

Introducing a new Etsy shop...

EdieMariesAttic on Etsy

This shop is "Edie's" shop, some of you 
know her as Sherry. 

She's selling handmade upcycled handbags 
that she calls "Pretty Pockets". 
They're made from old blue jeans that 
would end up in the landfill but still have 
some life in their parts... 
what adorable pockets and labels 
some jeans have! So she decided to save 
them from destruction and give them 
new life as little shoulder bags. 

Great for tossing your wallet in, to 
run to the store or when going to your 
favorite flea market.

OR for that hard-to-buy-for teen that 
needs a little bag for essentials. 

Here's a sample of what's on her Etsy 

The Miss Chic Shoulder Bag 

(The fleur de lis is made of leather with a bit
of sparkle and the reverse side has flirty
eyebrow fringe and some blingy crystals.) 

The Retro Flower Child Shoulder Bag

(A vintage 60's flower pin and
a charm that says "Be Yourself" -
a great message for a teen!) 

The Black & Pink Paris Blues Shoulder Bag

(reverse side - You know if the crown fits wear it!) 

The Faded Blue Paris Blues Shoulder Bag

(Blingy charm & old key and a cluster of
vintage buttons - so charming)

Paris Blues Shoulder Bag

(Vintage buttons and blingy charm and old
key dangles from a belt loop on the front -
reverse has pocket and fleur de lis charm,
perfect pocket for a cell phone)

She has vintage souvenir items such as: 

A Souvenir North Dakota Scarf 

A Souvenir Lake Sebasticook, Maine Scarf 

A Souvenir Alaska The "49" State Scarf

A Souvenir Knott's Berry Farms Scarf 

She's also in the process of posting vintage 
jewelry and other vintage items on 
her new etsy this week! 

Hope you'll stop by to visit 
when you're in the mood to shop or just 
window shop! You're always welcome 
to stop by and browse. 

love & hugs, Marie xoxo

  11. Good morning dear Sherry & Marie,

    Since today is Halloween, I wanted to share this little poem with you...

    This is Halloween

    Goblins on the doorstep,
    Phantoms in the air,
    Owls on witches' gate posts,
    Giving stare for stare.

    Cats on flying broomsticks,
    Bats against the moon,
    Stirring round of fate-cakes,
    With a solemn spoon.

    Whirling apple parings,
    Figures draped in sheets,
    Dodging, disappearing,
    Up and down the streets.

    Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
    Shadows on a screen,
    Shrieks and starts and laughter--
    This is Halloween!

    Happy Halloween and make sure you come by my blog today for my Halloween Bash and see what costumes I dressed you both up in! hehe xoxo

  12. Hi Marie and Edie,

    You have such gorgeous creations in your Etsy shop.
    Love the sweet dolls and the cute bags.
    Best of luck with your shop.

    Happy week
