My Package arrived!

   I received my package last night from Vanna at Delusions of Grandeur. Here is my antique pilowcase and my little jewel box. Even the wrapping paper they came in is sweet! Now as soon as I get done moving things around here I'll post a picture of this pillow in its new spot!

Thank you Vanna for this great Giveaway!

My Work Table with Spun Cotton Ornaments to Finish

The little red mouse guards my thread!

I bought her a few years ago in an antique shop.

She works for free!

I have lots of vintage and victorian lace to pick from.
Can't pass up a piece of lace for sale when I go to the antique shop.

I brought out a few of my vintage Easter decorations. The 2 ducklings on the right were real ducklings at one time. In the 1950's they made  easter ornaments this way, they killed and stuffed them. .... poor babies. 
I believe they were made in Japan.

Here are a few pictures of my work table.
The little kitty with the ballerina dress came from a flea market long ago.

My Spun Cotton Chickens are waiting for Easter outfits.

My Next project is my old Victorian Doll House. I just had it brought down to my studio from the second floor.
I'm working on cleaning and decorating it.
