Tempest in a Teapot..

     I have been in love with a special publication by Somerset Life.      The Marie edition from April, 2009....
  
      It is full of amazing project ideas and I have been captured by the "Tempest in a Teapot"..


It is shown on page 95 of this special edition   and I have been gathering inspirational items in order to bring my own "Tempest" to life!





                                            
                                    
                                                 
                                        My "TEMPEST"!!!




                                   She came to exist through many travels...   
                         the half  doll I purchased for $10.00 in Chicago.                                                  
                         Her outer dress found in in upstate NY, the teapot I
                          found in CA.

                         I had a  little box which I placed all of the 
                        inspirational pieces into, and on a rainy Sunday,    
                                




                           It was  time to bring her to life...
                             




                She is divine and sweet and holds a bouquet of flowers 
                                     close to her face..               
                            






                              The back of her dress is a bustle which displays a 
                        sweet rose pin and bias bustle. 

                    She is pretty in photos, but in real life, is one of my 
                     most favorite creations.. ever!


                     Blessings for Marie, and all creations which
                      may inspire you!!!
