sugar box #2



Sugar Box #2 (Sugar Box #1 can be seen here): perfect for the five-year old's woodland day dreams. I'm contemplating a few more, perhaps a bit more animated Red Riding Hood vignettes: perhaps Wolfie dressed as Grandmother in a grand--and a bit gaudy--Victorian walnut bed, lazily drinking some nettle tea and nibbling on lemony crumpets; or the woodsman with his wolf-killing armament: a scythe, an awl, and large shiny ax.

Oh, I love it. Also the color on the wall behind it...simply great. It wouldn't happen to be Pottery Barn's Jalapeno, would it?:)

This is adorable. SHE is adorable. I once made a cowboy-scene shadowbox, yee-haw, and this is so much more quaint and high brow. I love your aesthetic.

That's so cute.

My Rose was wearing our Red Riding Hood cape and standing by our red tulips today and I was so disappointed I didn't get a chance to take a picture. (I told her that if the wolf told her to pick the flowers, she'd better not listen to him.)

I meant to ask -- did you make Little Red Riding hood (as in she's not a purchased doll?) I assumed she was a doll but then when I realized you must have made the wolf from clay and faux fur, I realized you probably made RRH, too. She's SO cute! Is her hair embroidery floss?

I have been obsessing about this color green since seeing the room what seems like a long time ago. I will not pretend that I have the skill to paint such a beautiful headboard but I would very much like to paint my walls this color.

Could you please let me know the name and maker of this amazing color?

Thanks so much,
Tracey@paperdollsforboys
