...Mary's May flower crown

...hello again dear hearts!
earlier this month, i had a gentle urge 
 to make a floral crown for my Mary statue.
~ and as it sometimes occurs,
the topic arose as i was conversing with a dear customer
about this desire.
imagine my delight when she told me that in the month of May,
that (in the Catholic Church)
the Virgin Mary is honored  as "the Queen of May"!
how apropos...
here a few photo's of my Mary's May flower crown...
i adore how the fresh, spring green background looks
as a back drop to her white crown and lace veil.
there was an interesting, ancient brick fence
at the location i chose...
i admire the decaying beauty of it all.
i could hardly believe my eyes
 when i saw the above photo up on the screen,
as the lighting of the sun that day
caught the camera just so...
can you detect a golden halo around her head??
i just had to add a faint lace accent to it...
more ancient loveliness...
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of May!
~adore~ this shot,
Mary and a mini crystal chandie :)
i always look forward to the spring flowers
as they are so short lived.
i try an capture a glimpse of their beauty
for those long winter days!
and like many of you ~
one of my favorite flowers are lilacs...
they smell
wouldn't you agree?!

...fairytale ballerinas...

...once upon a time...
there was a girl,
who delighted in the thought of
everyday fairytales ~
and set off on a creative journey
to leave a trail of fairy dust
for those that also seek a little sparkly enchantment
and wish to come along...
hello dear hearts!
today, in the land of odds
is the premiere of my new collection of
  fairytale ballerinas.
i have had such a lovely response to my petite theatres and fairies
that i have finally created a few more.
these are the first few to arrive...
created from paper clay,
each petite fairy
 has been dressed in the most lovely
embellished netting lace that i could find!
thy make such "ethereal tutu's"
wouldn't you agree?!
this fairy ballerina is ~ sweet Jasmine ~
see her tiny crystal crown upon her most petite head?
here, she gracefully dances with her sea swan...
(you know i have to sneak in the sea somewhere ~LOL!!)
and this next little darling is ~ ethereal Oona ~
each dear dollie is posed differently
and each are one of a kind...
i adore how their little faces turned out...
they look so whimsical as the twirl
in their petite fairytale theatres.
(soon to be released in my shop, along with a few other theatre whimsies!)
i created their tiny wings similar to my life sized lace wings
they are spun out of sheer fairy tales!!
WHO wouldn't secretly wish for a pair of her very own?!?!
can you imagine gliding along in their sparkly little worlds??
this fairy ballerina is ~ enchanting Clairette ~
i have so enjoyed every aspect
 of creating these little fairy ballerinas,
and hope that they bring a happy smile to your heart's today!
 a little fairytale wonderment for everyday...
next time,
 ~ Mary's May crown ~
and i'll be sharing this post with: 
common ground's: be inspired friday

my romantic home's: show and tell friday
here's to everyday fairytales!

...my driftwood ladder

...hello again my dears!
my how time flies!!
has it nearly been 3 weeks for reals?!?!
whew ~
obviously, when i'm in my studio creating whimsical things
i loose track of time :)
would you like to see what has emerged?!
here ~
 is my driftwood ladder...
i have been missing the sea,
so i have been adorning my home with creations from her treasures!
gathered pieces of driftwood make up the rungs
to which i have tied with a natural hemp string onto 2 awesomely gnarly branches
i then white washed the whole ladder
and began adorning it!
i wrapped bits of lace and sea silk ribbons...
some vintage crochet lace and linen pieces...
a strand of my fairy lights

and a sparkling silver glass glitter seahorse ...
i tucked it into a corner in my family room
to bring a little sea delight to that space...
i rather like how it turned out...
it is not meant to bear any great weight
but merely for a pretty decoration.
and it reminds me to keep climbing up,
and to cherish the moments i have had at the sea,

and to seek beauty
that sometimes is already locked away within your heart
just waiting for the moment to sparkle and shine...

blogging has seem to have changed somehow,
maybe due to the new format
perhaps pinterest has taken it's place
(that's like instant gratification if you are a visual artist!)

i do so enjoy sharing with you
and reading your lovely comments
so for now,
i will continue to try and inspire you all
with the words in my heart and the things from my hands...
next time,
i'll show you the little fairies that i have been working on
designed to twirl and dance within a fairytale theatre! 

until then
biggest hugs and kisses!
