We took some sweet photos of our Marie Antoinette Playhouse pink Christmas Tree. Its one of those things that makes a "happy place" and warms my heart to turn on the little lights each morning when I come into the studio.
The pretty Marie Antoinette doll sitting so pretty by the tree is a "rescue" from Ebay. She's one of those rare half dolls from the 1920's made of chalk-ware. When I received her she was naked with just her pretty white hair and perfect make-up. Her face took my breath away ! The funny thing is that there is actually the initials, "MA" carved into her back. I didn't know that when I bid on her, but just felt she would be such a pretty addition to my collection. I ordered the dress from China for less than three dollars and dressed her and this is the outcome. She is one of my most beloved treasures and I'm sure is enjoying her "first" Christmas here in the studio. The other Marie with the Eiffel Tower base is another pretty from Sugar Cookie.
The pretty blue ribboned box is our gift wrap this year for our Calligraphy Initial mugs we sell in the PaperNosh.com gift section. The blue reminds me of a snowy evening and I just know "Marie" appreciates them :) Happy Holidays and Happy Hanukkah to everyone !!
