Somerset Studio December 2008
Somerset Studio about my dollies and how they came to be.
I'm so very pleased with it, they made it so pretty,
I hope you enjoy it.

I've been making these old paper candy containers for a long time. During Christmas especially to hold special
gifts and treasures
and as sweet little gifts themselves. ~~~
I've hung them on the Christmas tree, and made them for the dolls to carry their own little chocolates. (see my Queen Anne in Somerset with her little candy container?) I bet you didn't know that Queen Anne dollies need lovely chocolates just as much as we do!
I've hung them with ribbons from the back of each dining room chair as a small favor for guests during holidays. ~very beautiful by candlelight when hung from the crystals on the chandeliers~
You could cover your boxes with beautiful old fabrics, color copies of beautiful old pictures or use treasured sepia photos.
I have used these beautiful little glass encased pretties made for me by my dear friend, Cathy, as the centers of the paper rosettes, as beautiful dangles hanging from silk ribbons ties and as gifts nestled inside the tiniest boxes.
the pattern is found in Romantic Homes for you to use. I hope you enjoy making lots of them for your loved ones.
