Marie Antionette style swap, with Marie Antionette

I am sure many of you are familiar with Marie Antoinette's blog, she and I decided to do a swap, and this is my end of the swap. I hand painted the lace at the top of the crown with water colors, it makes it so vintage looking.

I made the crown from old wallpaper and trimmed it with everything I could think of. I used vintage gimp around the bottom and top, vintage sheet music, ribbon, lace, I cut out things with my Cricut, and glued and embellished. I used semi precious stones, feathers and glitter, I think it turned out quite well. I included this little shoe, I had such a fun time making theses shoes, I have blogged about them before. This one I made especially for Marie, note the M. on the shoe and the crown.

This is a wand of sorts, I just wanted to try some things with crape paper ribbon and glitter. Marie said she loved it all and that made me happy. I am so pleased with the cyber friends I have made. Who knew blogging could result in having friends across the U.S.A.
Thanks to all who check out my blog, I know I don't do as much as I did before, but I am busy with a remodel of half my home and it is very time consuming.
P.S I will post the crown Marie sent me, at another time.

What a neat idea to paint the lace with watercolors... I'll have to try that sometime.
