A present for Charlotte. . .

Well, I missed another doll class, this time due to circumstances having to do with re-wiring fun, which I won't bore you with the details of. . . (The joys of owning a 92 year old house, which has much of the same wiring it did the day it was first built!) Anyhow. . . I do have one fun thing to post about, which are these:

They are a pair of antique cut steel buckles that I bought for Charlotte at the Dress U marketplace. A littler closer of a view:

I don't know how old they are, but I feel they have the right look to work with Charlotte's mostly-18th-century wardrobe. I had thought to make them shoe buckles on a pair of shoes I'm daydreaming of making for her. Not sure if they are actually a bit small for that, but I'm going to give it a shot and see if I can make it work!
