Family Portrait Spoof

Ever wondered how it would be to live in the 17th or 18th century?
Well... I was up to no good and with a little help from photoshop
I created a formal wall display of our
family in my favorite century attire......

Let's meet the family shall we?

 My daughter, who hates this picture, she says she looks like a dog with a head cone.

 The beautiful "Ginger"duchess, My mother in-law

 Yeah...How you DOIN?
My bro in-law
 Love the curls ...Love the curls

Same brother in law with a new look

 Is this a princess? Or is this a Princess?

 My Lady...

 My Father in law who I really love him in this outfit


My beautiful "French" Puertorican gorgeous mother
 My Handsome Duke Mitchell the 3rd

 My other lady....

Last but not least, my cutie little nephew petootie..
the future earl of Missouri
I picked up french provincial frames at Hobbly Lobby and local thrift stores

The family loved it!

Diy Mohawk YSL shoes

I know I should be faux finishing or painting something for the blog but
I found these online and fell in love with these funky shoes, but was not in love with the price tag. OUCH!!!

I knew exactly how I was going to make them.

Here is my version..

These are all the materials your going to need.

Start with the right shape shoes.
These resemble the heel of the original YSL shoe.
They don't have to be exact but they do have to be comfortable.
I found these at Nordstom rack.

I purchased 7 inches of faux fur from the trim section of the fabric store.

I cut it in the direction of the length

Combed it

Spiked it with hairspray

Glued the back with clear tack glue

Placed it on the back of the heel.

Slapped them on my bird legs.

Love them!!!

I spent less than $4.00 for this project and they look FAB YOU LUS!!
