Margot's Bed.

is one of my favourite films.

Excitement! Love! Drama!
History! Dumas! Rapiers

I also love

 So when I decided to get myself a Deridoll,
I always knew what I wanted.

The sweet little parcel!

The sweetest little gift card


Here is Queen Margot,
in her fabulous dress.

And here she is by Deri,
complete with her necklace
and cute bodice lacing!

See the label?

Here is Queen Margot,
all sexy and what-have-you.

And here she is by Deri,
 in her mask!

Exactly the same!

What else was in the parcel?

Ribbon roses!

Deri's exquisite, handmade ribbon roses!

They're tiny and beautiful
and I am in awe of how she makes them!

As she knows!

Thank you, Deri!

To order your own Deridoll

When the Queen arrived
I got a wonderful surprise from my good friend

You can't see it in this photo,
as the Queen has claimed it 
as her royal bed
and is lying in state.

Here it is!

It's a HUGE fabulous felt pin cushion
with the most spectacular ribbon flowers.
Look at them!

On top is a really sweet little button
with grapes. 
It's now on my sewing table,
stuck full of pins.

is another bunny lover.
(That sounds wrong, doesn't it?)

She also does wonderful jewellery

Here are two gorgeous things
she sent me!

Look at that fab rabbit!

And this! 
A Steampunk Bunnyfly!

I love this so much, I wore it
when I was sworn in as an
American Citizen.

(I know you can't see it, but it's there. Honest!)

Oh, and this is taken
on Hubby's phone
so I apologise.

Flag looks good, though!


  1. What a cute little doll!! I have never seen the film, but I love the pics you included. So much wonderful eye candy in this post! :)

    1. Thank you! Deri and Miss Magpie are both wonderful artists and I love their creations. Queen Margot claiming the pin cushion as her bed was just a bonus. Oh, and if you like historical films with blood and lust, you might like Queen Margot.

  2. Arrr she's so cute. :-)

    The steampunk bunnyfly is gorgeous.

    1. I know, right? I've wanted to commission this doll for a long time! And the bunnyfly is just perfect! I wear it all the time.

  3. The doll is cute! I also love your new pincuhsion - a little piece of art!

    1. I was so thrilled to receive all these pretty things. The pincushion is in use all the time, finally one big enough for a lot of pins.

  4. Lovely post, full of good pictures and good humor! Love your blog! Enjoy your lovely dolly!

    1. Thank you, Luba! I was so lucky to be given these wonderful things and wanted to share.

  5. =D What a lovely post! ...I am going to steal a bunch of photos from it! =P
    I'm so glad you liked her, B.! <3 It was really a pleasure making her for you!

    1. Aww, thank you Deri! Help yourself to the photos and whatever you need. I am delighted to finally own one of your dolls and those ribbon roses are teeny little treasures. But you see how Margot helped herself to Sandra's pincushion bed, right? Bad queen!

    2. She doesn't look like a queen to be denied! Never thought about adding a canopy to a pincushion before!

  6. Since we can't encourage you/drive you nuts in person we have to send goodies for that :)

    I'm ridiculously honored that my necklace made it to your swearing in ceremony!

    1. I was honoured to wear it! Its gorgeous and goes out often, accompanied by a pair of bunny shadow-puppet earrings Hubby got me. So, thank you! :)

  7. I love your new doll and all the extra special treats that came along with her ;o) I think you look adorable in your picture ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

    1. She's so sweet, isn't she? I'm delighted with all of it. And this is what bloggy friends are for, sending goodies. I've stolen your paintings back from Hubby and I'm putting them up in my studio as soon as it's cleared!

  8. The bunnyfly is to die for! What a beautiful piece! Love these sweet deridolls, so cute and creative!

  9. A sweetie pie of a doll! Love learning lots of new things from you.

  10. Get ready to be extremely ashamed of me, for I haven't read the novel or watched the movie. And it has rapiers! Would I spoil the book too much if I watch the movie first? I'm feeling a tad down (and lazy) lately, so I've given myself permission to veg and watch TV.

    LOVE the doll!


Thank you all for the wonderful and supportive things you say! I'm thrilled to read them and I reply to each one.
