My French Home Creates...And A New Caretaker.

 Burlap Luxe At Home

Away from it all...

Uninhabited increases the sense of


Capturing the soul of its

 Inspiring via sourcing

Stealing time Creatively,
Seeing beauty in its

The latest created soul of light piece,
Santos cage doll
Santons (French)

hand-made molded and shaped French Cartapesta
signed Burlap Luxe piece is 
on its way to Vera,
here at...


She has been created in French Cartapesta.
A medium Burlap Luxe is known for,
along with bending and creating hand twisted
wire crowns.

Her skirt is of aged artist painted gauze, trimmed in
vintage salvaged cotton threaded lace fitted to
her caged bodice.
Being a gatherer of words...
Ephemera book word "Peaceable" is seen on her backside
cage and peeks through a gap in her skirt.
The words "the crown" appears on
her arm.


Aged and decayed with an expression of love and
thoughtfully complex.

She is featured and can be read about in my etsy shop

Thank you Vera,
for becoming her caretaker, a curator of her

Mon cher ami français, il était merveilleux de vous voir ici avec une visite à ma maison où je crée , et vous me complimenter mieux .

Oh, your words Doré, they capture me. Away from it all... This is it, yes. Then this PICTURE with the green window. It expresses it all.
And if this wouldn´t be heaven, the little French petite with the most gorgeous CROWN, so little but delicate and perfect in its own way. The little Madonna, la petite Madame, she will be so protected in sweet Vera´s home.
I hug you, my fairy, it is SO good, that people like you are in this world, opening doors for us to the other world. Away from it all... :)

I love every little detail about her, although the crown might be my favorite. During a period of time while I was recuperating from surgeries I spent a lot of time creating dolls out of clay and sewing their clothes. It is was peaceful to be creative. It is probably one thing I miss most about now having my shop and working in finance, no creative outlet. I have to say I am going to borrow your key hanging from the door knob idea, the wire instead of thread gives it a unique look. Thank you for visiting my kitchen, have a wonderful weekend. Alaina

La Contessa said...

I would imagine SHE is hard to PART with also!
