little princess

May 3, 2013

In a couple of days, Solvi will turn 5. In celebration I bought a very special gift made by Alessandra for Solvi’s mouse. And to top it off, a little golden crown fashioned by Moi. The body is actually a repurposed wee, cupcake holder from Martha Stewart’s American Made Show. Honoree Angela Liguori had the foresight to save several of these delicate, laser-cut papers. And she was generous enough to bestow one upon me when I admired it in her studio. I knew then that it would become a tiara for one of Solvi’s dolls. But how to add the requisite bling without obscuring the gossamer lattice? A little gold glitter applied to the inside did the trick. And now it glows from within. Just like my little girl.
