FINNISH (ED)...

Or Dutch...
DONE!
Rockin' those new ribbons and lace...a great mixture of old and new, throughout - simple but lovely.
Broken and forlorn, no more - she seems to have a bit more of a smile on her little face today.  I forgot how much fun these small scale projects can be - quick and satisfying...wait for it...DOUBLE DUTCH fast!  Have a wonderful weekend - hope you find something to keep your hands and heart happy - XOXO

I will head to her site after this as I am right there with you drooling over ribbons and lace! Applause, applause for turning this sweet porcelain piece into a gem..love it!!!
