I hand wrappped the beads (both vintage and new), including two hand wrapped by me "eye of god" wraps that I learned how to create from the book Just Simply Charming, gifted to me for Christmas by my friend Bianca. I used steel and german wires, which will not tarnish or rust. Measures just around 18" long, but can be shortened. I listed the piece HERE on my site.

Speaking of gifts, I received this gorgeous Christmas pillow from my adopted Mossy Mom Joanna Pierotti! The image is a scan of one of her hand painted doll faces and I just love the quote. And it smelled so yummy! I LOVE YOU Mossy Mom!
The two photos below were taken by my friend Rhonda of her doll collection! Isn't it just fabulous! I love how she has the glass cover over a few of them! A few of the dolls she purchased from my shop, including the very tiny one. Thanks for letting me share these Rhonda! Sometimes Christopher rolls his eyes re: my dolls but I insist I'm not the only one! Proof!
And here is my latest baby. When I bought her, I fell in love with her ruffly dress and booties. Not to mention she is a sleepy doll baby. She is not as old as my usual dolls, but I just loved her. And after doing some research on her markings (the word Ideal pat. pend. with a circle on her back), I found out that she is "Boopsy" doll created by the Ideal doll company from 1950-1955. She originally came with only a diaper. I'm pretty sure I got a great deal on her too, as I didn't not know this, nor did the seller. Love those side glancing eyes!
And here are some sweet Charlottes from Japan. I've had them for a while, but never photographed them. The little baby with the puffy dress is very unique!
Happy New Year friends!

And how about some FLITTER! This is new to me, and I LOVE IT! It's like glitter meets mica flakes!

With all the happenings around the tree, a little Charlotte popped up to see what was going on!
I donned my antlers for the occassion!
