Jodie (everything vintage)

Gosh Karla, you are such a sweetie.
I'd love to join in one of your swaps but I think I'm going to wait for the next one. I'm going to give you a break on this one ;)
The tags look so cute, I know I'll regret it but I'll enjoy seeing every one's when they are done.
Thank you for being such a sweetie.
Those little Charlottes are such a good find!!! All 140 of them!!!!
Now go, keep making those cute Alice tags ;)


Just bought your last 7 pieces, wanted 8, but I guess they sold like hot cakes! Congrats!

Lucky number 7


Grrr just call me a grumpy fairy. Every time I come to your blog and see you have something wonderful that I simply must have I am always the first person AFTER they sold old. Hmphh! Kicks dirt.

I loved those lil Charlottes, so sweet and shiny, from the tips of their tiny noses to the their dirty little hineys!

I am hosting my first exchange and thought it may be fun for sugar wings.




Oh, you little stinker, you! LOL! I've been looking for JUST that kind of source and I can't find them in bulk like that ANYWHERE! I love what you are doing with your tags! They are so full of magical whimsy!

Karla!! How did you EVER find so many Charlottes?? WOW! They are just wonderful. I have always loved them. Those tags are wonderful, my favorite is the mouse! Love that bunny image too, thank you so much for sharing it with us! I have been creating a lot with vintage Easter images lately :) They are just so cute!

That is quite the amazing score of Charlotte dolls, Karla. Wow! Thanks for sharing them with us.


Looks like your charlottes were a hit!
Alice looks like she's dancing down the hole ;)
So Cute!


hi karla,

how adorable your tags are! i love the scale of alice and the door -- a wonderfully clever detail.

if i wasn't immersed in many home projects, i would surely join in. have lots of fun!



The Alice falling down the rabbit hole tag is a great idea! That kind of creativity leaves my jaw dropped going, "Wow."

Good luck with compiling all the books when the tags all arrive! Do you think you'll make a craft day out of it?


I hope there are a few of the little charlottes left for me...placed the order and it didn't say no. :) I love the tiny ones! And your new tags are great...the handpainted dormouse is adorable!

I love the charlottes! I remember that you could buy them at ebay at bulk quantities, but I didn't know what to do with them and at that time first quality wasn't that expensive either. Oh I love the idea of digging and finding doll parts! I think I would never stop digging! Haha do you get the picture? I think this could work very well for loosing weight: just tell the ladies there are charlotte dolls to find and no one would ever go to a gym. Why don't I do something with this idea? Love your tags!


Hi Karla,
Oh goodness, I just LOVE your Alice tags!! I too, would
have loved to join this swap but, I'm still not feeling
great and I worried about completing and following through.
Your drawings are adorable and I'm really drawn to the
one with Alice and the little door. It is just so sweet!!
I have a couple of charlotte heads from Germany that I
have sitting in my hutch just waiting for me to do something
with. They are unglazed bisque and painted in pretty pastels. Thank you for the sweet Bunnies!!


holy cow, that's a lotta charlotte dolls...they are darling...LOVING your alice tags...and how you transformed the fairy into an alice, that is really sweet!!!

Cindy Is Crafty

Karla, you are a busy little lady! I love the Alice tags. Too great!

Michele Askeroth

Wow, those little porcelain figures are really cool. I was so excited to get my tags done and off in the mail to you today. The covers you made are amazing with the little door that opens up. I can't wait. What a great idea it is.


Such fun! Love the porcelains and that little alice tag! Wonderful! Mine will be done this weekend, posted Monday!


Your alice tags are wonderful! I also love your dolls and just bought 3. My DH is going to kill me, but oh well. :+)
Thanks for the chance.


Hello Sweet Karla! I was just looking at my Puppy Love tag book from last year's exchange, I love it so much. I am not much for Alice in Wonderland, although I don't know why, but will look forward to learning next year's theme. I saw a handpainted old globe someone had done with lots of "Alice" phrases and pictures once on Etsy, that was pretty cool. I think the whole thing sort of scared me when I was little, I didn't "get" it. Anyway, also looked up "Frozen Charlotte" on Wikipedia, had never heard of them...you can learn so many interesting things on blogs! Anyway, hope you are well and not missing SW and her daddy too much. I'm sure there are some difficult moments...but she is never far, thank goodness! Your Friend, Bobbi


I'm off to shop for Charlottes! Hope I seen some. ;)


Those tags are very nice. I love the book page background. I love the painted Alices too. Wish I had thought of it :) Came by to get some tag ideas and maybe some graphics to steal for mine :)

Shall we exchange postcards?
Please email me your address.
This should be fun!

Also I am having a giveaway on my blog.



I would love to win a tag since I can't play!!


Love the little dolls dirt and all! Your tags look great too. I started mine today and hope to have them complete by Monday at the latest. I made Easter tags last week, a first for me to be ahead for a change. Have a sweet weekend!

Nancy Jane York

Those sweet Charlotte's were so cute. Your tags are just wonderful. I made a bunch of Easter tags and posted them on my blog on Pink Saturday. Come visit me when you get a minute. Nice meeting you. Nan


I like the little Alice falling down the rabbit hole - not too obscure! I wish I could come over and help you pack up the Alice tag books! I would, you know! My tags are on their way to you - mailed Saturday.

Thank you for the Easter picture; I should be working on Easter stuff, but working on Alice stuff instead...;)

Julie Ann

Hi Karla :) I was just over at Beth's blog and heard you caught the Frozen Charlotte flu... I hope that you're taking a break and resting up in order to get well!! Please know I'm thinking of you and I will be sending up speedy get well prayers for you. *Hugs*


I totally enjoyed this post.
