If a picture could define a person, this is totally me! To me the most beautiful animal in the world is the horse. I must have a dog in my life at all times. I love everything about the Victorian era, the clothes, the hats, and never forget the gorgeous jewelry. Christmas ornaments, Did they know how to make them or what? Furniture speaks of a time when craftsman and artists really took the time to make beautiful pieces of art. Lace- That is another one of my passions and I have been collecting it since I was in my teens. I will never forget running across a garment that was from that time period and the stitching was all done by hand and it was perfect. What would we do today if we had to make are clothing by hand. Sometimes when I am making my dolls I think of that time and I try to make sure I keep that spirit of hand work alive. Mostly sewing and very little glue.
