Corinne....

Here's my new little, sweet girl....Corinne...meaning Maiden. Well not so little, she's actually about 9 " high by 3" wide. And, what's the best part about her you say? She's on ebay tonight 5:15 PST starting @ just .99 cents!Call me crazy but I thought it would be fun to see how she does and I plan on listing a few more like her this week so keep your eyes peeled... : )
She has a crackle finish all over her body with a nice antique stain. I also tea stained her little cloak (which can be removed) and the hand sewn flower in her hair. She is weighted at the bottom with sand so she is able to stand freely wherever she is placed.
I love me some of that crackle stuff!

My mom always asks me why I create new things just to make them look old? I know some of you are like this too so you get it, right? Who doesn't love stuff that has a story, has been weathered and touched and played with and admired from a different place, a different time?
Thanks for ALL your inspiration friends...have a good week! xxxx
