The new line is off and running. I am adding to it every week. I am so inspired by all things French and especially Marie. She had a horrible reputation for extravagant parties, expensive shoes and her favorite color was Tiffany blue. How bad could she have been? Centuries later she still inspires us to give elaborate parties, drink fine champagne and just have a royal time doing it. I have had great feedback and response to the new line of "Eat Cake" crowns, hats and Pretty little things. I think that's why I keep adding onto it - maybe it is just fun! Here is a peak at the latest in the line. A sweet mini crown (about 2/3 the size of my large crown) still big enough to impress and easy to wear. I designed this line with friendship in mind. I envision a group of women getting together for a "Marie Soiree" sipping champagne, eating cake, laughing and basically having a great time together. Everything in the line makes a wonderful birthday, anniversary, achievement - just friendship kind of a gift. I recently gave one of the masks to my girlfriend Cindy as a hostess gift - she loved it! I design with what I would love to receive in mind. Here are a few peeks at the new crown and "Treasure Box". The treasure box is the perfect packaging for a small trinket. A bracelet, earrings, watch, pin etc. Wrap the box in a clear cello bag with a beautiful French ribbon and tag: you are set. Enjoy!
Front view. I put it atop a German Glass Glitter Pedestal that I made. Maybe I will teach you all how to make one for your Marie Crown.
I handmade the white flowers. The centers are blue antique faux pears.
I hand glittered the dress.

Don' you just love the crown on her head?
Secret message inside "Eat Cake"
I picked these faux blue pearls at an antique shop over the weekend, they are perfect as knobs.
