Back in the Groove

I want to introduce to you to Betty Rose. A while back I showed her to you (naked). My kids named her Betty, not sure exactly why. They keep drawing pictures of how she would look with a head and limbs. lol They want her to stay but my hopes are she will find a good home.

She really has so much to offer, lots of vintage jewelry and so much class.

Her skirt is vintage lace and pearls adorned with embellished tags and jewels.

Though she is a bit "worn" it really lends to her charm.
In the back is a pretty bustle and floral nosegay.

It was so much fun bringing her to "life." She is currently available for purchase on our site. Maybe we can find a friend for her one day.

Hi Carrie, she's lovely. It's fun to watch your business grow. What a joy it must be to have your children involved. How cute!

Hi Carrie....I'm so glad you are back in the groove again. You create the prettiest things, and Betty Rose is just gorgeous! How fun that she is a muse for the kids' drawing. :) Hope you sell lots and lots in the Mother's Day Shop-Hop. I am NOT in my groove right now so decided I would sit that one out.

My goodness, Betty is a vision! She looks terrific, you have her all dolled up just perfectly. You have to post one or two the kids pictures. I'd love to see what their ideas are too.

As cute as that is Carrie, she will sell in a flash! I was coveting her for my jewelry! ;)

Carrie,
You have such an inner creative strength for design with whatever hits your hands and heart. Your products just leave me speechless, and I would bet Betty Rose doesn't last a week before a local shop owner scoops her up for a prop!

Betty is beautiful and I hope she finds a good home soon. From something so uninspiring you have produced an article of beauty and inspiration.
