I have more ideas in my head than I can keep up with.
I think this time I will just fill you up with pictures and save you from the rattle that is going on inside my noggin...
old blue bottle, hello dolly china doll head, rhinestones... uh yeah.
you know this girls deserves that and more! Look at how sweet she is with her demure little smile. I think she looks remarkably like the doll head.
I hope she got there.
on to my gypsy girl...
swimming in pearls...
bringing her bling...
cuz you know she's got some bling!
The back of the photo says '28
I know you do too, we are made of the same cloth.
it's one of my favorite things about you.
Her photo is actually inside of the bottle so the pearls can shake around her like a gypsy snow globe!
you know I love my birds...
unless they're pooping on my windshield.
this one would never do that, certainly not after I gave him some rhinestones and a soldered charm.
a charm with his daily duties... his ta~da list so to speak!
He is a plastic light from a vintage strand I think, I have a red one too, but they didn't come with a set or anything, so they. must. be. soldered.
here you can see the jewels inside his bottle.
this is why the soldered bird sings!
I love them all but I have saved my favorite for last...
I love this lady, I don't know who she is but I just love her gentle nature that shows up in this photo.
Oh my gosh, I want to be her when I am old.
I might even wear that fabulous dress with the ruffle going down to the bottom.
did you hear me?
a ruffle all the way to the floor!!!
She has our style girls!
She had to have the crown. and this fabulous finial.
She is standing in front of what I am assuming is her prize plant in her garden.
So I put dried rose petals in her bottle and hung a monopoly wheelbarrow game piece from a jump ring that I soldered to it, and a religious medal and her soldered charm that says garden queen.
I left plenty of room so that you could see the writing on the back of the photo.
o.k. so much for saving you from the rattle...
I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF!!!!!!!
So with all of this soldering you can probably imagine that I have a bit of house~tending to do!
I better get to folding some laundry because this morning Max went to school with mismatched socks.
just keeping it real people.
Thanks for the visit!
I'm linking up to a few parties right now because I'm not sure how long this house~tending is going to take! Because these are all listed in my etsy... The Old White House
I'm linking up first to the Bloggers Bodega
that's a whole lotta partying going on at 612!
