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!

Marie had the honor of displaying her 
incredible Christmas village at the 
town depot for a special Christmas 
event taking place in her hometown 
of Picayune this month. She was able 
to spread out her thousands of village 
pieces for a dreamlike place of ages past. 

Marie's village was featured in 2 
articles in the Picayune Item newspaper's 
Lifestyles section. 

CLICK on the articles to enlarge them 
enough so you can read them.

Marie's hubby took a wonderful video 
of Whitmanville for you to enjoy. Her 
son-in-law edited it and Marie's sweet 
daughter Alex posted the Utube of it 
for you to enjoy and share with your 
loved ones.   

The above link is a great Utube 
overview of the entire Christmas Event 
that Marie is a part of. Towards the end 
of the video there's an interview with 
our beloved Marie!    

I'm so proud of you Marie and your 
ability to create such a wonderful 
fantasy place for all of us to visit. 
Your Whitmanville has brought us 
so much happiness and delight

From Marie and Sherry... 


and TO ALL 

Have a safe and blessed Christmas! 

Marie & Sherry

 ~ Christmas ~

A time of wishing... 

and hoping.  

A time of working... 

and playing.

A time of old customs... 

and new. 

A time of traveling... 

and visiting.   

A time for writing greetings... 

and trimming the tree

A time for giving... 

and receiving. 

A time for singing... 

and dancing 

 A time for baking... 

and dining with family & friends

A time for great anticipation... 

and dreams come true. 

A time for praying... 

and a time for reverence and awe.  

Don't forget to let your inner child come 
out for this special season of celebration!

" For it is good to be children sometimes, 
And never better than at Christmas
When it's mighty founder was a child himself."
by  Dickens
