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!

What could be more fun than


located in Northwest Ohio
celebrated the fashions 
and fun of the 50s 
dressing up in attire that 
June herself would have worn. 
My dear friend, Kitty, and I decided 
to make a visit and surprise the 
"Girls" with items our 
Mom's would have worn in the 50s! 
We made our entrance and the "Girls" 
were in hysterics
If you're gonna wear the clothes you've 
gotta play the part... 
 Edie Marie & Kitty

and we did!!

   The "Girls" joined the fun and 
gave us a great photo op for our 
Brownie Camera!

Welcome to 
at the home of 
Marie Antoinette! 

What do you get when  
a white peacock ... 


and a blue peacock... 

have a baby??

A two tone peacock!

 He's magnificent isn't he?

Love how the  white is exactly 
in the middle of his tail fan.  

What a grand work of art by 
the Creator! 

(By Marie Antoinette)  

   Marie was a proud Grandma when 
she and her daughter, Alex, went 
to see grandson, Courtland in Florida
What a handsome threesome! 

Grandma Marie, Grandson Courtland, Daughter Alex

Courtland is 18yrs old and in the US Navy
He's at Aviators School in Florida right now.

We all wish you the very best Courtland! 
Thank you for becoming a part of our 
countries protection.

Please keep Courtland and all our other 
Servicemen and Servicewomen

They appreciate it more tha

 She has been doing great in her battle to overcome Pancreatic Cancer. 
She has a rare chance to fight it and your 
prayers are making all the difference! 
They ARE being heard!
Thank you for your continued prayers
