Thank you Anne, for your sweet comments about my dolls. I thought the same thing when I saw that yarn - this would make lovely doll hair :) A friend of mine has a small peacock blue streak in her otherwise red hair and it looks awesome. You could try that instead of doing the whole "unicorn" hair color thing, although that looks fab on some too.
Thank you Anne! The roses and herbs are from my garden, the fruit and cucumber are from the farmer's market. I'm trying to make spa water daily because its so delicious. Even just one slender orange wedge in my to-go bottle of water makes a delicious treat. Try it let me know what you think of them!
