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!

 ~ 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

When looking for that perfect gift please 
visit our Etsy shops listed on our sidebar. 
Some great handmade and vintage items 
are just waiting to find a new home! 

Our friend Lorena @ Rose Chic Friends 
has a very worthy cause if you're looking 
for a special way to give this holiday season. 
There are still many people in need after 
Hurricane Sandy ripped apart the 
Brooklyn, NY area. Visit Lorena to 
find out how you can help if you feel 
led to do so. Just click here.     


Love and blessings to all of you
throughout this holiday season!

Marie & Sherry


  1. Great images Marie and thanks for psoting my etsy shop!

  2. Sweet thoughts and wonderful graphics...I wish that I could buy all that I like from Etsy sellers...they are some of the finest.

  3. Dear Sherry, what a wonderful post with special thoughts and wonders for the season.
    I love the graphics you choose to illustrate your thoughts. Thank you for sharing my shop and the shops of such talented friends. And for also sharing Lorena's fund raiser. She is a sweet and giving lady and I too have her donation button on my sidebar. We all have so much to be thankful for this Christmas and giving back only seems right.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment on my door design. Now if only I was off to France!! Maybe someday. But for Christmas there is no place like home.

    Hello Marie, wishing you a grand week too my dear. How is the village tour going? I would love to be there and see it in person. One of these days, I might just surprise you.

    Love you both,
    XO Celestina Marie
