Two Lovely Ladies

                Came across two lovely ( slightly shabby : ) Ladies in a thriftshop and
                felt so sorry for them ,
                they didn't seem very comfortable , so I decided
                to ask the poor souls home with me .

                They watched the shop today !!

                Click photo to enlarge

                I'm sure... next time you'll see these Ladies.... their looks have changed .

                     Some fabrics I found , plan to use them in my fabric books .

           Following.......a few pictures of the lid of a wooden box I altered ,
                                     using vintage material.




                                With Love ,

  4. Hello, my Dear! I've come to you from The "Grow Your Blog" party...it was over before I knew about it, but it was so nice of Vicki to leave the list up! Anyway, I always welcome new blogs to enjoy, and yours is delightful! I am now following you ~ please come and visit me if you get a chance!
    So nice to "meet" you!

  6. Wilma!!!
    I was sure I had been following your blog! I guess I have been looking at it but didn't hit the follower button....I am so silly! I LOVE your blog and I remember your heart scahgning story and loved it too! Your Box lid is GORGEOUS! Your fabrics are GORGEOUS, your dollies are so sweet, they remind me of two dollies I "adopted" from a flohmarkt in Germany...one has had "adjustsments" made to her, and I am not sure what to do with the other...she had very fun clothes, but I'll bet I could do something for her in the way of sprucing her up! her face is an unusual color, and her cheeks turned yellow instead of a pinkish color...maybe she faded in a window...My Grandgirl LOVED her for a few days in Germany. Thanks for reminding me about her!I truly thought I was a follower before, I intended to be! LOL
    You do beautiful work!
    See you again soon. Thanks for stopping by my place!
    Happy Hearts to you!

  7. Wilma, did you do the beading on the lace on your box? It is so beautiful! And the fabric on the lid, so perfect for a base under all the gorgeousness!!! Just looking at your work some more !
    Happy Valentines Day
    Hearts to you!

  8. Hi Betsy,

    Thank you so much for your sweet comments!! Indeed, I also did the beading.
    The lid is wood and I altered it.

    Hope you had a lovely Valentine !

  16. Hello Dear Wilma
    Just thought I'd pop in to say hi and to say how gorgeous your dolls, fabrics and box lid is.
    Everything looks so very beautiful! I just love those upholstery fabrics and I too love creating with them.
    Know what it is like trying to create and blog at the same time. It gets just so hectic!
    Warm wishes to you,
