What’s new? A lot actually! I haven’t been blogging much lately because at some point you just need to make a choice where to spend your free time. As many of you know we are building a new house and we are still in the process. Note: When the builder says 9 months, he really means a year. So we are at a year and still counting. I hope to post lots of pictures of the new house when it is no longer covered in plastic and tarps. In the meantime, I am constantly adding to my ETSY shop despite my cramped quarters. This Easter I have added a new piece to my line based on one of my favorite musicals,
There is just something about this movie that gets me tapping my toes and singing along to the tunes. I wanted to pay homage to the movie with a special Over the Top centerpiece that captured the essence of the movie.
This piece is rather large, around 12”.It is covered with German glass glitter. The top hat is fashioned after the one Fred Astaire wore in the movie. It is made of crepe paper and Dresden trim. The white Easter bonnet is a replica of the one Judy Garland sported on 5th avenue.
Lots of little details really make this a fun piece and worthy of the movie which inspired it. I really love it and made a few extras to sell locally here in Washington.
You can find this creation at Common Folk Co in Bellevue.
