Valentines Day, A Month Away!

Life and crafting in Snohomish Continues. . . .

Meet Marla, it's her Re-Birthday!!

I had a fun and busy day! I made some Birthday hats (See ) for all of them, but I set up a fun display using an old spiral staircase plant stand I had, but hadn't used for a while. I added some tulle I had on hand and set up the hats.

Then I added "Marla," she's my new "roomie" Mannequin Head at the shop. I named her "Marla" after Marla Maples, since my new studio is on Maple street! Marla comes from a company in Port Townsends who restore and handpaint mannequins. She's a "Landfill Lady," although I keep wanting to call her a "Dumster Diva"--Has that phrase actually been coined yet? Because I know (and love) a few of you that THAT may apply to! You go girls!!! I've got your back,,,,,or your ankles! (I'll hold, you dive!!

I also went to Annie's on First today and bought a few vintage flowers for a project (top secret) that I'm working on and some really fun burlap bags to store my larger stemmed pics I use for crafting....too cute!! I never get out of Annie's without something!!

Busy and fun day! Marla and Me are calling it a nite!!


  1. What cute hats! Aren't they so much fun to make? :)

  2. It is so curious that these Mad Tea Parties are still going strong! I've yet to clean mine up, so please feel free to follow me back down the rabbit hole to Haute Whimsy before life goes back to simply mundane!
