Beulah la Beau an early 20s Vamp...
A A Foolthere was, and he paid his Coin,
To a dark-eyed Dame, from Ten-der-loin.
He took her out to a West-Coast-Town,
Dressed her up in a Form-fit Gown,
Filled her eyes with Bel-la-Don-na,
And said, ``Now, Kid, for-get your Hon-na, For, Hence-forth, you're a Scar-let Scamp
A reg-u-lar, red-lipped, black-souled Vamp".
She signed his Con-tract, for she was Meek, He made her Fa-mous with-in a Week;
And when I tell you his Pro-fits, you'll
A-gree that, per-haps, he was'nt a F-ool.

In another Mini shop, which one day will be an old fashioned Tea Shop, three very thirsty customers made by Margaret Tees, all soft-sculpted - Hercule Poiret, Miss Lemon and a maid/waitress are waiting patiently. I've quite a few of Margaret's dolls - two elderly ladies, a gorgeous little girl, a starving Artist, and Theda Bara as Cleopatra. All have homes or vignettes yet to be completed....;)
the crazy quilt needs finishing, my paintings framed, Dolly dressed but at least I finished the mirrored dressing table. I've also to get that deco bed finished, then the boudoir room box interior - watch film 'Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day' Deco interiors and bedroom to die for!! Just seem to be full of ideas and have TOO many projects on the go at once. Am I the only one??
