The Polka Dot Closet and Romantic Homes

One of my very favorite magazines that I have subscribed to for quite a while is Romantic Homes.  I was reading some  of the blogs I follow and found out that Carol Turner at The Polka Dot Closet was going to be featured in the "Make It" section of the September 2010 issue.  I "met" Carol and started following her blog back in March when I won her "Cottage Charm" giveaway. 
Remember my lovely tray?
Here it is.

  Handmade by Carol

When  I got home from work today I checked the mail and found my Romantic Homes Magazine waiting for me.

I love to sit with a cup of tea and read this cover to cover.

This is one of the pages where Carol is featured.

Do you remember using paper dolls?  We spent hours playing with our paper dolls and making new clothes for them to wear.  Carol has a creative way of using old paper dolls and other vintage items.

Take a look at Carol's blog and her shop, don't forget to enter her giveaway.  I know you will enjoy your visit.
