~ an altered art party fairytale ~

...once upon a time
(bloom stained art tags)

there was a girl, who liked to play with pretty supplies...
very whimsical things

~ such as old rusty keys
and luscious hand dyed silk ribbons...

(sweet dreams - victorian grunge silk necklace)

and other shiny objects that just so happened to catch her eye...

(Elegant Whimsy - a vintage silverware chandelier windchime)

now...being a gypsy fairy girl at heart  
she would always see things just a little different
...a little odd

odd (od), adj.
differing in nature from what is ordinary, usual, or expected... 

she took delight in various materials
manipulating them to please her unique heart

(wee willy winkie - vintage fairytale paper book art)

and with the wave of her magic wand
 always tried to present them as a gift ~ 
in her mind's eye,
they were...

 gifts from her hands,
a gift from her heart!

her designs were born out of a desire for simple elegance in her everyday life

and in her eyes ~
even the most humblest of materials
could surely be made into something lovely...

(Lovely Candle Corset)

she was definately a seeker of the unusual  
and was always  
her wings outside of ordinary boundries

 (Butterfly Goddess Romance Choker)

...always reaching for that little somethin` somethin` extra  
to amaze and delight

(swan lake - delightful shortbread cookies)

the complete visual was important to her...
as her muse was always beckoning her  
to display and package all of her pretties
with as much creativeness
as she could possibly imagine...

(rose - a paper doll muse)

as she continues on this creative quest ~ 
and making such pretties as these
she is always on the lookout for inspiration

(doorway to the theatre of dreams)

as it can be found in the most unlikely,
off-the-beaten path places...

and her wish for you  
dear one,  
is that you may also find YOUR bliss
wherever that may be

(make a wish - a most whimsical horse shoe)

because in doing so ~

(A French Country Farmhouse - paper doll)
you are on your way to writing your very own fairytale!!

~ la fin ~ 

and for other fanciful tales

join in on the party here at

from the girl behind the curtain ~

~ bonus clip ~

a sumptuous tray full of whimsical rose brooches...
