The New Boxes on the Block!
Lady Primrose and Blue Bear!
Lately I have been drawn to decorated boxes, ones with cute assemblages on each box top. After searching and searching for the right components for the boxes, I found some of the items were too cute to use only on one box, so once again I hand molded my items and poured some of them with paper mache, others pressed with my handmade clay and others with a blend of paper clay and apoxie clay.

The first of these new boxes are:
-Blue Bear's Party
-Lady Primrose's Tea Party

Blue Bear's Party! 4
Blue Bear is on his way to a party in Pink Valley at Sammy Petalsmith's house located at the tip of Pinksby Mountain, where Sammy has set up a Pink Wonderland filled with sweets and treats!

Lady Primrose is on her way to a Garden Tea Party at Abigail Brewster's Arboretum in Sunnyvale. The Tea Party begins at 12noon inside the Climbing Roses Gazebo which will be glowing with Oriental lanterns and twinkling lights laced between layers of roses and vines.

Both were made from my molds and a paper mache mix, then sanded, hand painted and decorated, not to mention loads of glitter. Blue Bear's Party has vintage multi tinsel glitter I had from Woolworth's and Lady Primrose's Tea Party has fine German glitter from Art Glitter.

Hope you enjoy them!
Magic and Joy,
