Hello Everyone! I know it has been quite a while since I blogged but it isn't because I have forgotten you all. No, in fact I have just been super busy getting my house ready to sell. This is another long story which I plan on sharing with all of you once all the papers are signed, sealed and delivered. For now I decided to take some time out away from the grind and making something I really have been wanting to.
She has been on my mind for a while. Ever since I found the little porcelin number and the birdcage. She is actually No. 4 in a series I have made each different yet similar. There are some signiture things I like to do, for instance the champagne cap that I twist and turn to cap my Marie and of course the little secret drawer which make her oh so mysterious.

"A Lady Of Quality"
This mannequin is about 16 inches tall and just filled with details. I absolutely love making these - the problem is they take so long. By the time I finish I have invested so many hours that I never know what to sell them for. But sell them I must if I want to keep buying supplies. So I am told.
Sweet Miss No. 24 is for sale in my ETSY shop. Click here to see her.
Secretly, I hope no one buys her so she can stay with me a little longer. I must confess I finished her a few weeks ago but have been admiring her in my craftroom which now needs to be packed up for our move. I guess she would be happier with a permanent home instead of the double-wide I will be moving into. Intrigued? I told you it was a story for later......
Until then - Good bye for now my sweet friends...
