I've been wanting to make some of my Parsley bunny designs in a sorbet color and thought these might be a good option. I've been making Parlsey for the past 6 years and I never tire of it as I have so much fun experimenting with different color combos. As his name suggests, Parsley is typically made up in green, but I like to pair that with whimsical watermelon-colored ears and a small needle-felted tail (shown here).
Several of the papier mache dolls I make are in need of frocks, and I haven't had the time to properly dress them. Over the weekend, I found the perfect fabrics online—these wonderful 1800s reproduction pieces by Judie Rothermel—and they arrived today! The prices were deeply discounted, which was a nice bonus. I'm sure the ladies will feel pretty in these pink and brown beauties!
Yesterday, the mailman delivered an antique book on Victorian decorating that I ordered a week ago. Published in the 1880s, it's still in great shape. I'm writing an article on the history of Wardian cases for a magazine, and thought this book might have some interesting details that I could incorporate into it. The Victorians certainly had a flair for displaying their houseplants! This particular one (below) incorporates an aquarium into plant stand.
