I was on the lookout for this hutch since I saw one at my friend’s house. Lucky him he found it on the street! His was missing the glass and mirror though and mine had the edge cover removed and has been revarnished and restored. I have got all my precious collectables now protected from kitchen grease and dust.
Here’s the new fabric that I created for Le Boudoir de Marie
It’s based on a typically french fabric called Toile de Jouy. There is a museum in the suburbs of Paris that you can visit to learn more of it’s history. Musée de la Toile de Jouy.

Paper theaters! What children did before there was television!!!
I covet all of these lovely watches!
I love the glamor of these two blond 1930’s cowgirls and their bee-stung lips. Followed by the sketch I did of them.
A fabulous collection of toy castles, many of which look hand made.
I got a new ukulele! It is a Gretsch resonator (tenor) and I put a low G string on it to make it sound a little more like the guitar. I wanted to buy a Kala electric but wasn’t able to find a good disbuter to order it for me so this was the best comprimise. The resonator amplifies the sound so it’s like the step between acoustic and amplified. I’ve been having fun with it!
