O.L.D. number 7 is finally up for adoption! You can see her adoption page HERE.

I confess to having occasionally gone a trifle “Miss Hannigan,” the Carol Burnett character from the movie “Annie” this week. I wanted every detail to be perfect! But, curses! These girls are small.

Little girls
Everywhere I turn I can see them

Little girls
Little girls
Night and day

I eat, sleep and breathe them…

It was worth it! She turned out great. See what you think:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHH

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHarriet’s hooded cape is made of old and lovely green velvet. I taught myself to do ribbon work and embroidered the flowers on her cape in pure silk ribbon.

For the first time I made two dresses on purpose. Harriet looks just as pretty in the blue as the yellow! And each dress comes with a matching hair band.

Lastly – and this is where the Miss Hannigan came in, but only after I spilled half a bottle of glue PLUS a thing of glitter all over my desk – which also had paperwork on it!  Did you know a little glitter goes a OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAlong way? Well, it DOES. Also, glitter sticks to glue. Hope nobody was walking by my house when THAT happened!

All for this tiny, tiny hand-painted pendant for Harriet to wear around her neck, just as Hazel does in “Hazel Twigg & the Hollyhock Hideaway.”

I did a little reverse painting on the glass and then drew the little fairy on a paper insert. Then I shamelessly cannibalized an old necklace for its chain because I wanted it to look old…”and important” (from the book).

All these fiddly, fiddly things! I can’t seem to help myself! It’s an illness, I tell you! I hope Harriet finds a good home. We’ll see!

Some women are dripping with diamonds
Some women are dripping with pearls
Lucky me! Lucky me!
Look at what I’m dripping with
Little girls
