Midnight on the Nile

I have launched the Midnight on the Nile jeweled bookmark collection!! The Midnight on the Nile jeweled bookmark collection captures the ethereal beauty of a mythical, midnight cruise down the Nile.

I'll be adding more bookmarks to this collection soon. There will be more bookmarks with lepidolite and lapis lazuli. I am also designing new bookmarks using onyx.

Jeweled bookmarks are elegant. Book lovers adore these. You can use these bookmarks for your diaries, photo albums, planners, and favorite books. The small bookmarks are perfect for small books.

You can view these bookmarks in my boutique.

A Trendy Jacket for Autumn

I recently completed an Autumn jacket ensemble for a My Twinn doll. My daughter and I shopped for the fabric together, because we were giving this ensemble to her friend. We selected royal blue ultra-suede and accented it with a black micro-suede collar and black buttons.

I based my jacket on a pattern from Morrissey Patterns. This jacket is an unlined jacket with one button under the chin. I added the ruffles to the hem to make the sleeves full-length and to add a stylish embellishment to the garment.

The Golden Leaf Bookstore

I recently added an Amazon-affiliate store to Aurora's Dream. It is called The Golden Leaf.

The Golden Leaf offers an eclectic assortment of books, magazines, perfumes, and music.  I have included children's books, books about dolls or doll collecting, magazines, and literature.

You can use The Golden Leaf to purchase anything you want from Amazon (even if I haven't included it in the store).

I'll be updating the links in the store regularly. Enjoy!!!

Dreaming of Castles

Although I do not build or decorate miniature dolllhouses (yet Smile), I do enjoy viewing them. I find dollhouses quite charming.

My dream dollhouse is actually not a castle; it is a Victorian Mansion with electricity and contemporary furnishings. 

If you could design a dream castle or home in miniature, what would your abode look like?

I have included links to two castles that I find absolutely delightful.
