On the ninth day of Christmas . . .

My creation

Marilee is one of my etsy favorites! Her shop, Marilee Jane Designs, is filled with amazing vintage-looking cupcake toppers, boxes and whimsical jewelry. Every single thing in her shop oozes charm. She also has a second shop called Party Pop Pop that's all party items -- very cute party items!

She made the cupcake toppers for the girls gingerbread party last year and the fairies for their seventh birthday party. Every single little head was hand-shaped, hand-painted and every skirt was hand-folded and glittered. The detail in her items is just amazing. Her pieces and make you think of a time when things made of paper mache, folded crepe paper and tin glitter filled holiday trees and curio cabinets.



And best of all, Marilee is an absolute dream to work with. I loved the little snow ladies she made and asked her to make fairies for the girls' birthday, which she figured out how to do just for me. I then asked her make more fairies as tree ornaments for the girls' little tree, which she happily did too.

And you can have something special made by Marilee! She is giving away a Victorian Angel Holiday Candy Container pictured in the top right corner above. This beautiful, Victorian, candy box is made from paper mache, and is covered in vintage music paper and gold cord. The little, angel cut out is decorated with an antique, garland crown, tiny, sparkly pin, and snow flakes. A crepe paper ruffle trims the top and bottom edges of the candy box. The handle is made from a gold chenille stem, and includes a glitter trimmed card, and gold star. Hang on a tree, or sit on a table, and fill with your favorite holiday candies. With handle, candy box measures 6 1/2 inches high.

This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to !
