THE WHIMSY OF MISS CLARA of FRANCE

When I came across the creations and home of Miss Clara, I felt I had stepped into a fairyland like no other.  I wanted to be there, to live there, to grasp the ethereal ambiance of her Queendom...if I may coin a phrase, as it did seem like a fairy Queendom.

 PLEASE ENJOY THESE PHOTOS FROM ONLINE SOURCES.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR EASIER VIEWING.  THANK YOU!


Oops! This is not one of Miss Clara's photos...but I will share it anyway, as I adore marionettes.



Miss Clara, of France, sitting at her table creating dolls, shoes, and flowers.  She does not sell her dolls or creations but rather has them be photographed and used in fairy tales which books can be purchased on Amazon and other online book sources.

Oh! Stop! My beating heart! Such sweet simplicity of design that touches the soul!


To me, this one looks like Alice is deeply dreaming in her Wonderland World.


Miss Clara makes wondrous creations that look like frosting on a cake!
Miss Clara's paper delicacies.
Miss Clara's home.  Words can hardly express the wondrous texture of her domain.
A fairyland indeed.
Feminine Mystic.
Only to be a bird in a cage in her house would be bliss!
Tea cup creations and dainty fairy shoes. Oh! My!
Miss Clara's house and her creations.


This glorious paper dress defines Miss Clara's ultimate creativity.


I hope you enjoyed this ethereal adventure.  For more images of Miss Clara's creations go to Yahoo and type in:  Miss Clara's home images;  or Miss Clara images.  Enjoy!

Miss Clara has been a fave of mine for years Teresa! Her imagination seems endless in the fragile beauty of her creations. Oh by the way my blog is growing due to my participation in Grow Your Blog.

Oh...how magical!! I don't know which one I love the most - the girl and kitty or the girl on the couch or the girl in the birdcage... And I want to make my home as whimsical as Miss Clara's!

Also, thank you SO much for adding my blog to your sidebar - I am so touched.
