Lexi the Pixie....

You all know Wendy of The Shabby Nest and she makes the most adorable pixies. I tried my hand at them this weekend. They were really fun and I know I will make more.
These were hard to capture how cute they are in my photos. Her camera does much better with it.

I changed this one from the apothecary jar to a cloche....she shows up much better.

Hope you all have a great Monday and come back tomorrow to enter the cookbook giveaway. Oops, I accidently hit publish post and it is Sunday night. This should have been my scheduled Monday post.
