Hello Everyone

This first time ever event is being hosted by Rocky Schmidt, Ninimomo and Magia 2000.

A select number of attendees, myself included, were invited to be part of this premiere event.  Sadly, due to family and prior obligations, I cannot physically be there.  However, I WILL be there in spirit, as I have collaborated with Hilda Westervelt on several offerings including the Golden Ticket Doll , and the return of our “Mannequin Maven”-dressed OOAK Silkstones Dolls, AND the Centerpiece Dolls, which I am most excited about !

If you are in the area, there will also be a sales room open to the public on Saturday, the 18th from 1:00-5:00 at:

Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan

1605 Broadway

New York, NY 10019

Here’s a special preview of a few of the “Mannequin Mavens”  – faces only for now. Please look for them in the sales room with Hilda!

Wishing all the attendees a fabulous time! I will miss you all, but here’s to much success and a OOAK fesitval next year!

“Mid Century Miss”

As most of you know, I love set design and creating spaces (in miniature) that resemble mid-century life.

Although I had a basic idea for this set, it kind of evolved while I was working on it.  I can honestly say, it’s My very favorite set so far! The colors, the elements – all working together. 

May it please You as much as it pleases Me!

(Purchasing information at the end of the presentation)

 

“Mid Century Miss”  – Two rooms of modern living !  This set consists of four free-standing walls  furnishings and accessories, creating both a Dining Room and Living Room.

In the Dining Room you will find :  A mid-century style dining set with rectangular table and four chairs, as well as a matching buffet with sliding doors to accommodate dinnerware and glassware. A lovely Chinoisierie style painting adorns the wall.  In true mid-century form, a large lattice-work window provides ample light and architectural interest!

Dining chairs are upholstered in a vibrant yellow wool.

The plant stand, with a variety of plants and flowers, also acts as a mini room divider between the Dining and Living areas.

In the Living Room, You will find : A scrumptious sofa upholstered in spotted flocked taffeta! The piece features tapered legs and several colorful toss pillows!  In front of the sofa, a long, low coffee table with plenty of space for accessories and trinkets.  Corner accent table houses a special treat! A built-in, mid-century style lantern/lamp that actually lights up!  (LEDs provided).  Above the sofa, a hand crafted mirrored “shadowbox” reminiscent of  those found in modern homes in the late 50’s. A sweet addition to the space.  Light filters in through the lattice-work window.

New set coming soon ! 

On their way Home…

As you may know, I was busy over the holiday break making pieces from my “Shelf Life” sale.

All orders have been completed and are on their way to their new Homes.

It is quite satisfying and fulfilling to see a compilation of my hard work and that is why,at the end of a sale, I like to take some photos before the pieces go on their way.

I’m not sure what I may be offering next, but thinking about it and pondering what I may want to tackle is part of the adventure.

Until next time – Cheers!
