#41 Has Landed, Meet Evangeline and Mathe, Teacup Exchange

Greetings! I'm thrilled RAK #41 arrived safe and sound on Maureen's doorstep.


Swarovski Crystal Bracelet 



Extra goodies (following a  black and white theme)

Visit Maureen at I Like Making Things.

I just completed Evangeline, one of Dana Burton's 1:12 scale doll kits I'm enamored with. She was to have been a sad fairy.....but she came unglued and toppled off the top of the polymer clay mushroom, so I had to go to Plan B. Plan B? Hmmmmmm......a dilemma. She obviously wasn't meant to be my sad fairy. Sifting through a tub of material, I found the most beautiful peach silk - and here she is!


Evangeline - 3.75 inches from the tip of her Victorian Boots to the top of her head
The buttons on her boots are gold microbeads


The wee-little Teddy Bear is hand felted (not by me), 1/2 inch tall and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity 




And now there's Mathe - part of Dana's "Romantic Royals" collection. I made the throne myself. That actually took longer than putting Mathe together. Hair and other embellishments yet to come.

Stephanie who blogs over at The Enchanting Rose is hosting a teacup exchange. Please note: a blog is not necessary to participate. Pop on over and read about it - sign up if you're interested. I did - of course, I'm a sucker for anything related to tea. Entries close on September 21st.

  1. I'm so glad Evangeline isn't sad! Of course, it's hard to stay unhappy when you're hugging a teddy bear. I'm sure Maureen is wearing her bracelet and having happy thoughts, too!

  5. Wow - such detail on such tiny "dolls"! Works of art is more like it! I can't even imagine felting something a half-inch high but the teddy is adorable. I'm off to check on the tea cup exchange...

  7. Love your miniature dolls. I was gifted with three store front kits that need to be assembled. I can't decide what type of stores I want to create:)

  9. I'm looking at the chair Mathe is sitting on, do you make the props yourself? It's so prettily decorated with lace.

  15. This is Maureen and the bracelet is totally amazing. I love it. I started on the felting kit too, I had never seen this type of work before and I can tell you that after a busy day it is an great stress reliever. I get to poke a sharp barbed needle in and out a thousand times into the felt to get it to make a shape. It is such fun, nearly finished the little penguin.

  20. The bracelet you made for Maureen is very pretty. Evangeline is lovely. I hadn't really thought about the size of her until I saw her next to the can of drink. Hugs, Christine xx

  21. I can't believe how small Evangeline is! She looks like she was meant for that chair - definitely not a sad fairy!
    Lovely gifts for Maureen too.

  22. Another lovely RAK and it sounds like you chose the perfect present for Maureen too.
    Evangeline is beautiful and seems much happier with her teddy and a comfortable chair!
