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!

Make a Wish...

I had a great Valentines Day. 
It became extra special when the 
mailman left a big package at 
my front door! 

Inside was this FABULOUS candelabra 
that Marie sent to me for my birthday!

Talk about perfect... it looks so   
incredible with my decor. 

And look at this sweet Birthday Card 
she made for me... 

not to mention this lovely Valentine Card. 

I think she's a genius! 

I KNOW she's a genius!! 

Look at how pretty this 
is on my dining room table. 

    I love decorating with some spring 
touches when the weather is cold 
and blustery outside. It shouts 
"There WILL be a spring!"  

I've added some pink cherry blossoms 
to my tall birdcage... 

and placed my darling crown votive on 
the silver tray with it.
(A Christmas gift from Marie.) 

And I have to show you the beautiful 
Paper Doll Angel that Marie made for me. 
Isn't she the sweetest ever?! 

Thanks Marie for making my 
birthday so special! You make me 
feel like a princess! 

Love & Blessings, 
Edie Marie

Creations on her Etsy Shop.

You are cordially invited... 

to celebrate Mardi Gras!
(French for Fat Tuesday and 
the last day before Lent.) 

Get your "throws" ready. 

Put your costume on. 

Make sure you've got on your 
dancin' feet. 

And join the parade! 

It's time to party 'til the cows come home 

in New Orleans and across 
the globe!!

Marie was raised in New Orleans 
and has years of memories of 
Mardi Gras celebrations.

Have a safe and happy 
Mardi Gras friends!!
