Les Fleurs de Marie

My little flower shoppe for a Marie Antoinette
Mail Art swap was such a fun project.

I couldn't find a box this time, so hubby built this one for me.

It worked out better because he made it with a pitched
roof that was really fun to cover with pink shingles.

For the shoppe sign, I used this beautiful image from
Her images are among my favorites to use.


Creating the miniatures for these shadow boxes
is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do.



Les Fleurs de Marie was created for Dee.

I hope she likes it.

Debi, I just had to get up and get some paper towels. I'm drooling all over my laptop! LOL!!!

I cannot tell you how beautiful this is. So clever and so pink! I love it! Oh, it so reminds me of Spring. It's just lovely.

OMG! How could she not LOVE it? Everything is so tiny - and just . . .perfect. I'd love to see into your brain while one of these creations is thought up . . .
You crack me up. You have a different "favorite thing" every month! But isn't it the truth? There is just too much fun stuff to do, and just not enough hours in the day (or money in the pocketbook) to do it all!
Loved this. Loved the crown on top.
Have a wonderful day!
