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

  3. Oh my goodness, words cannot express how absolutely wonderful that village is...makes you want to become a miniature so that you could live in it:-) I can't even imagine all the work involved in putting this village together but so worth it when you can see it all done up. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the video and I was oohing and aahing over every little detail. Love the animated ones as well, everything is just so perfect!! Dear Marie, I hope you know how many smiles this village is bringing to many people:-)

    And dear Sherry, I so enjoyed your old book, The Night Before Christmas...such a treasure to have and thank you for sharing it with us!!

    Merry Christmas to both of you, I feel so blessed to have you in my life and be able to call you "friend". xoxo

  6. Dear Marie, I am so proud of you and excited for your well deserved feature. You have made Whitmanville a special town and I just want to live there.
    I love the video and watch it over and over. Everyone is enjoying it this year. I know it was a lot of work, but so worth it. Many people have received great joy from Whitmanville. Love the Night Before Christmas too. Truly one of my favorites vintage style!!

    Blessings to you and Sherry, your families and friends for a very Merry Christmas and continued blessings in the new year.

  7. Love your village Marie, so great that you and Sherry have teamed up. I am still working on getting mine together, been so long since I had it all out. I am sad to find that many pieces are missing, we had so many problems with all our moves.
    Holiday greeting to both your houses and best wishes for the new year. Barbara

  8. HELLO YOU TWO! This indeed is a labor of great love - love for the art of it, for Christmas magic and for the recipients of it all.
