Dreaming and counting the days!!!



 Biltmore Estate


Not much longer now, and I will be packing for my short road trip to Asheville for the 
Once Upon A Dream... event hosted by Jennifer Hayslip.

My studio looks like a staging for a movie scene right now... ruffles, tulle and antiques scattered all over the room!!

My last project was a Ballet pointe shoe I transformed into a Fairy enchanting slipper. It is meant for a swap, Fairy Slipper and will be going with me to Asheville. I had soooo much fun working on it. Sweet Heidi from Sugah Beez sent me the shoe since she had a pair of her daughters worn ballet slippers. I thought that was very sweet of her to share. These shoes are even more special because they had been used, and danced and twirled in. Can you imagine a little girl practicing her pirouettes?  

I thought the wear on it adds to the enchantment... again, they have been twirled in... 
A fairy wore this shoe....




I added a note/story that adds to the charm, as if its an enchanting fairy tale page ripped from on old book and dusted with fairy dust... *sigh*








I had so much fun working on this... got me even more excited about the trip.... 
a week from today, 7 sleeps...........
