angel of sweet dreams....

For the last couple of days i have been creating a special little bear...she stands about 16" tall but would rather sit to show off the soles of her feet! She is and Angel of Sweet Dreams! She is made of lots of vintage goodness. She is partially stuffed with dried LAVENDER for a sweet smell!Vintage laces, antique baby romper (with a tuck and gather here and there to make it fit!) , vintage baby shoes (when did baby's stop wearing these!), glass buttons, shoe button eyes, old cotton scalloped cuff socks tea dyed a bit...her little heart she holds I made from a vintage baby blanket and hand embroidered it...The soles of her shoes i wrote a little poem.....
starlite, starbright
now I lay me down to sleep
Oh! just one, Once upon a time
then I'll pray my soul to keep.
Tuck me safely in my bed
my bear and thumb in place
then I'll close my little eyes
with a dream upon my face.

Have a wonderful evening!
