Sorry, I have been out of it for awhile.
Been anemic and still am.
But am trying to get some of this out.
Been a bad year for me, I hope next
year it is better.
Hope all of you have been well.
Okay, I am going to bombard you with lots of pic,
hope you like them.
Rhonda and this room-box was the 1st that
I had ever done with a doll in tow.
Outside pics come first.
This old lantern was originally white but I dirtied
it up with some black paint here and there.
Some of the wood had dried out on this lantern
and it just adds to the texture.
Windows on this lantern go clear up to the
top. It is 2 floors high.
A peek inside.
There is some hanging vines all over
the outside of the lantern.
It looks kind of scarce.
Wish I had bought more of it and
thickened it up a lot to look a little
I need to add some paint to the vines also.
Haven't done that yet.
All of these vines were added later cause
I had only 2 weeks to complete Rhonda
and the lantern for the room-box.
Yep, you heard right - 2 weeks.
But I got it done.
Here is a better view of the vines.
I need lots more of them.
Perhaps I will mingle different kinds
in with what I have there already.
The brass roof had these slits.
So I started putting the vines thru them
and also at the top.
Here is my Rhonda.
She needs to make some more potions.
The back of Rhonda's head shows the
steampunk hair comb that I made to
go in her hair.
Yep - that's me!
It was easy to make.
Here is the man podium that Detta
made me. She will make these podiums
anyway that you want.
I love her podiums!
I had her put a white mouse cause
I wanted him seen.
Also she put on a butterfly for me.
She did a great job!
Thank you Detta!
I cannot remember who made me
the steampunk broom.
The lady was selling them so
cheaply and they were gorgeous.
I could not help myself and I bought
3 more of them.
All different of course.
This is a piece that I bought
along time back, cannot
remember where but I think
at a grocery store when they
put out Holliday items.
I never knew what I would
do with it, but I think that
it is perfect for the cauldron.
No room for a fireplace.
Here is the eyeball stew that Rhonda was
The cauldron is large.
I believe that Detta made this also for me.
Google 'Detta's Darling Dolls' or
look back a couple of my postings and you should
see her new website.
I like how the cauldron glitters.
Maybe later I will see about making it
look like a fire is underneath.
The wooden floor.
This section is above the man podium.
A cobweb is there but I have not yet
found the perfect spider to go there.
This side is filled up with more things.
I didn't want to crowd in a lot, cause
I don't know what else I want to
put on the shelves.
Top are some books and a candle skull.
Here is an owl that has flown in and he
has decided to make a home there since
he has good access of going in and out
when he pleases.
Yep, I definitely need more vines.
On the remaining pics, there is a touch
of the light in them.
Hope they do not hurt your eyes.
I like the herbs - I bought them from
Mari Smith-Welch. She sells the flowers
that go Dana's dolls gowns.
The back of Rhonda.
It is a very cloudy day out there.
Eyeball Stew looks yummy.
But it is not to eat - its a potion!
But don't tell anyone.
It is dark outside and Rhonda is
still hard at work.
No one can see in, so no worries.
Thank you for visiting me!
Hope you enjoyed my Rhonda.

Hope all is well.
This is a Dana Doll named Rhonda.
She is made by Dana Burton of MiniatureArt.
You can find Dana all over Pinterest.
I happen to love Steampunk and Halloween witches.
Hope you do also.
I will show you my Rhonda next, although
she doesn't look like Dana's lovely doll.
Thank you for visiting me!

Hope everyone has been good.
I wanted to tell everyone that Detta's Dolls has
a new website.
She is no longer on ebay.
Here is her site address. Hope you will visit her.
She makes anything that you want.
You will see 4 dolls that I bought from Detta
way back in 2015.
Abbi Attelbrain, Darwyng D'aisling,
Suzetta Snippet and Ursula Upsy.
I had intentions of re-dressing 2 of these
dolls after I bought these and so I did.
Suzetta Snippet is my design. She is a Steampunk
Witch that teaches dressmaking.
Abbi Attelbrain was also my design. She was
Ursula Upsy was a doll that Detta had on her
website and I just loved her.
I loved how she was dressed and everything about
her - including her blue hair!
My daughter Pepper named her Darwyng D'aisling.
And Pepper told Detta what she wanted and
Detta patiently made her even the Dream
Darwyng was a dream giver witch and the dream
that she caught was someone getting married, that
is why she is holding a black veil.
I do hope that you go see the other witches that other people
have sent into her website.
Those are very nice!!
Here are a few of the clay witches lately that I have gotten from
I never care what an ugly witch looks like cause I
want to re-dress them to have some fun!
All of these I will re-dress but am not sure who I want them to
I love the ugly witches and I generally always tell Detta to make
them really ugly, warts and all!!!!
When I re-make these witches I will post what they look like.
Oooo, this witch has a sweet face.
Not sure who she will be.
And look at those red shoes!!!
They are bright and I love the color of them.
She looks frumpy.
She looks a little humorous to me.
What do you think?
I like the fabric. I hope to be able
to re-use these.
And I love the hat that looks like
it is weathered.
I don't know about you - but
but still have no idea yet.
Her white hair looks great on
her. Like that.
at these witches.
Each one of them have their very
I will have to show you some other
witches that I have.
Hope you enjoyed this posting.
Thank you for visiting me!

I bet you are wondering what is up here
with this posting!!
I just could not help myself!
Well, we have had many storms this
past week and I took some pics.
These pics reminded me of the movie!
BE SURE TO ZOOM IN!!!
Here we are heading to the gas station.
See the raindrops
- on the right side and middle-way of
I am on the passenger side taking this photo.
See that HUMONGOUS cloud!!!
Am not sure what those things are in the
sky to the left and right side of the green
I don't think they are raindrops??
Could they be UFO's?
Even the raindrops look like small alien ships
above the red roof.
Here is that same cloud
Something is in there!!
Could that be their ship that is emerging
from the cloud!!!
The cloud is so wide.
What do you think?
Here is that same cloud going over head.
Where do you think it is heading?
Is there an alien ship behind that cloud?!!
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!
Have a Happy Independence Day (4th)!!!
Be safe with the fireworks.
Thank you for visiting me.

Hope all is well!
Hope you have a great
Memorial Day tomorrow!!
Many times, I meant to post before now, but
some things kept coming up preventing
I am finally getting around to it now.
I do not know about many of you out there,
but I grew up in a small house with small
closets - 2 girls to a room.
Yep, am from a large family!
The rooms were small - never had a lot
of clothes to clutter up a room
In fact the entire house didn't have any
clutter at all.
So, I would never have had a closet like
this - nothing close to it.
But it is nice to dream!!!
This is my closet that I put together
for the contest.
Well - a section of it anyway.
And here I show it in its raw state.
I guess I forgot to take a pic of the other half!!
Where I was hanging clothes I put some
thick card there for the rods to go, to try to
give more of a shabby look to it.
Like the closet at some point in its life it needed fixing.
I put some extra shelves in this closet also that
was cut out from the same thick card.
You should be able to see them.
A vanity was suppose to go in the space
to the left but I didn't want one of those.
I wanted more shelving.
Needing to display as much
as I could.
It was a must to give some homeless things
Here is the room-box with the closet.
Hope you can see it okay.
Was feeling out - where to put things.
I printed out a shabby chic picture
for the flooring.
Back then, they probably didn't have shabby chic, but
all of that wood can be depressing.
So, I think the shabbiness of it does not
make my room the 50's.
Okay, I painted the outside black and the inside
white on this room box.
The closet was painted green so you can see it.
It catches your eyes more so than Candy.
There is a lot of color in there.
Also I hope I don't have too much repetition with
the pics - but just trying to let you see
everything from different angles.
A lot to see.
Glass is off.
Candy with her dog Co-Co.
She is telling him sweetly that she cannot
pick him up just yet.
He could ruin her gown.
Right side of the closet.
A mess on her ottoman.
Her ottoman is where she sits to put
on her shoes.
Good thing they are already on her feet!!
Left side of closet.
Closet has 3 hanging rods.
You can see the ottoman better
from this angle.
Her black purse and matching little wrap
to put on her arms in case she gets a little
The purse came from ebay back in 2016.
Things were so much more cheaper then.
The pink wrap sits on top of a little gown
that I made back in 2016 I think??
It has a matching little coat to go with it
hanging just a little to the left of it.
I made this nightgown set and never had a place
for it until now.
Back then I didn't know how to embellish
little clothes, but I think now I could
do a better job.
But this is done - so will not change it.
Here are some shoes that I bought from
They were very cheap and poorly done.
Bought many years back.
I had to remove the coatrack so you see
Also - see the legs that I put on my closet.
I made everything in the room-box except for about
I made the shoe boxes, lingerie, little hanging
coats, the dresses and nightgowns along with the
shirts folded up.
Also made the pocketbooks from 'Petite Sacs' tutorial
that I found online
I forgot if I put anything in the shoe boxes or the
I love the shoes with the matching purse.
Again bought from ebay many years ago also.
Love the fans on this shelf.
I need some memorabilia behind them.
There are the Petite Sacs.
Also 2 glove boxes with gloves in them.
Better pic of the coats and the folded shirts.
The pants below are actually Barbie pants that
I cut down and put on white hangers.
Better view of the coats.
Better view of the petite sacs.
Better view of the glove boxes and bra.
Better view of the perfume bottles.
Bra and panties in the first drawer.
Some more underwear in the 2nd drawer.
Bought the hat and the hose packages.
I added this fabric to the top of the closet because
underneath that I added a piece of matboard for
Then painted all of it green.
This shows the side view.
I made the red poodle skirt.
Forgot to hem it.
I had ran out of time and had to quickly
It is not a good piece but I love it hanging
I love this coat!!
Another item that was bought from ebay
perhaps back in 2012.
Don't know who made it but it extremely
light even though it looks heavy.
Would love a couple more of these coats.
Thank you for stopping by and
taking the time to visit me.
