Mushrooms, Cupcakes, and Vintage Sweetness

A little peek at some sweetness I've been working on.

Vanilla Cupcakes filled with Lemon Curd.

Wee chairs and vintage hankies.


A bit of lace and a peek of a hem...


A sleeve...


...maybe it will go with this!


It's looking like it will be a perfect outfit!



Last week I visited some antique shops and found some very sweet vintage finds. The most exciting was the little embroidered blouse, shown above, which fits my little elsa perfectly! Not only that, but matches just perfectly with the linen pants I am sewing her inspired by the book "Carefree Clothes for Girls". Do you see the little friend peeking out of the pocket? She's a tiny German dollhouse dolly that Elsa's sharp little eyes spied at the antique shop!

I'm in love with the wee chairs and linens. I've always had a soft spot for antique linens.

Hi Beth, I just want to thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog, I treasure them a lot, you know!
And I want to apologize for being such a bad »commentator« on your blog, since I've been visiting your blog several times and enjoying it a lot!
You have a very special gift for making waldorf dolls, they are truly sweet and special, not that many masters the art of simplicity like you do. I've been really inspired by your makings :)
Oh, and I have to tell as well, that although I don't involve my children in this blogging thing, I called for them to come and see your amazing birthday party with the Alice in Wonderland theme. They absolutely loved it!

Dear Beth

Oh the vintage treasure finders of this world...what would life be without us..I have that book too and think I should make little Livy something too. I purchased some 18th century lace a while ago. It must have been someones collection as it is all so beautifully intact. Your mushroom child is gorgeous. You are so talented Beth.

Love to you my friend
Lots of love
Suzanne
