Transforming something old into something new
is one of my favorite past-times.
While still maintaining
the integrity of the old piece
watch how she's transformed!
First things first, repainting the figurine.
I chose black and orange of course,
for her dress and hair ribbon.
Even her little package was painted orange
and decorated with a teeny black
paper rose as the bow.
If the devil is in the details, I better
get myself to church!
Armed with old laces and trims, I was
able to add texture to her dress.
Because her arms are overflowing with
gifts, I pictured her coming home from a
masquerade ball. This gave me the idea
to have her wear a silver glittered mask.
Every little girl looks extra cute in polka-dots!
A Victorian cone filled with Halloween goodies
and a Halloween flag made with a vintage
silver pipe cleaner makes me dream
of cooler, Fall weather.
Her music box actually still works so
I decided to give her a solid base to stand on.
More scrumptiousness to come!
