I couldn't wait to get her painted up! She … [Read more...]

One look and I was hooked. Holy empire goodness. I definitely hit the jackpot with this chest! Oh my. He was handsome.

The chest stood to the top of my chin. I know I am short, but geez, that is a big chest! He was … [Read more...]

This dresser caught my eye when I spotted her. She beckoned me from across the room. This girl has PRESENCE. My apologies for the lack of a before picture...I think I was pretty excited to get started and just jumped right in! Her mirror was just a frame as the mirror had been broken in the past.
