Since I missed what have you done Wednesdays...

Here's a peak of what I've been doing in between dealing with totalled cars, insurance companies and doctors...
I've been making Evangeline some jewelry, a skirt and a panties & bra set.  I've already cut out a corset & skirt to make next.

I love to put together new outfits on my mannequin.  Today I'm hemming and taking in a dress that I had made about 10 years ago from a piece of vintage silk my mother gave me.  I plan to wear it to a wedding reception tonight. 
What do you think of the shoes and necklace combo?

Color Themes - Orange and Teal

My latest color obsession is orange and teal...
Aren't they lovely together?

Freaky Friday - MOBILE, Not just for the crib...

Mobiles are a type of sculpture in which parts move, often activated by air currents. Mobiles are also referred to as kinetic art, because they incorporate actual movement as part of the design. (From: Exploring Mobile Sculpture and Kinetic Art)

I'm in love with a doll...

Her name is Evangeline Ghastly

She was just dropped off on my doorstep this afternoon.
I can't wait to get my hands on her!

Does anyone else have a doll obsession?

What have you done Wednesdays - VACATION

Well, if you hadn't noticed, I was out of town last week!  My son and I took a trip to San Diego to visit family and friends.  We had a wonderful time, my parent's new house is amazing, despite all the animals; the weather was great, the people were better and here are a few pics of inspiring Mexican Art I'd like to share from various shops in Old Town....
