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!

 That's right - 
I'm going 

 where there may be 
bathing beauties...

bathing caps...


and the rare beachy ballerina



and silvery moons
will be our entertainment.

They say

and I know

So I'll be 

with my toes in the sand

or in the surf

listening to 

I'll be back soon with 
a bag of seashells...

to put in bottles...

study artful details...

and admire  God's treasures 
of the sea that 
wash up on  shore.

What divine beauty! 

You know...

And always remember...

That pretty much says it all 
doesn't it?

"I will give you rest."

See you soon dear friends, 
Edie Marie

While Edie Marie is "frollicing on 
the beach" Marie Antoinette 
will be slaving away in her 
studio to bring you 
more beautiful creations.

She happens to have a gorgeous 
Paper Doll to delight you! 

This is The Steampunk Peacock Lady! 

(Click on the photo to enlarge)
Marie has outdone herself on this paper doll. 
The peacock feathers that are used for the dress 
are perfect feathers that Marie recently collected 
for this beauty.   

(Click on photo to enlarge) 
It's impossible to see all the detail in these 
photos. The lady sparkles with glamor and 
 glitter and is embellished with silk flowers 
 and trims to tickle your fancy!  

Please take a look at her on Marie's Etsy 
where you can to see all her 
gorgeous items!     

The Digital Print used to creat
this item came from the Etsy of 
a friend, Rhonda's Originals.
Stop by to see the great digital 
images she has.  

Have a wonderful week! 
Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie
