When we lived in St.Louis, the streets in the Central West End all had classic, elegant names. Maryland, Westmoreland, Pershing, Westminster, Hortense, McPherson, Euclid, Lenox. I still imagine walking up and down them, pushing a stroller, a little one running ahead.
This felt cottage is named for a townhouse on Hortense Place.
It can hold jewelry, necklaces and earrings. Or it can just stand alone, lovely as is.
12 inches tall. Handsewn from repurposed felts, vintage fabrics, antique laces, buttons and trims from my collection. Signed and dated. (Sorry, jewelry is not included.)
