All Dressed Up...


This vintage dress form is one of my most favorite pieces I own. It once belong to my grandmother who passed it down to my mother who then passed it down to lucky me :-)


I know I've shared about her before (click here) but today since she's sporting a new look I thought I would share again. She once use to reside in my daughter's bedroom, but now can be found in mine; hence the new look.

When I first saw this beautiful vintage crocheted collar at a thrift store I knew it would be perfect on her... And I think it looks tres chic paired up with my favorite necklace.

Love the tiny, little crocheted buttons, such a sweet detail. So, how does she look?


Thank you all for stopping by today.

Remember, leave a comment so that I know you were here.

Have a fantabulous day.

I just love your vintage dress form. I have one that resides in my daughter's room as well! It's not nearly in as good a shape as yours. I just love the way you've dressed her up!

Your dress form is lovely and it looks so sweet with the vintage lace collar. I need one of those.
I just had to go back to your last post and stare at your pretty and shiny kitchen range. It is SO lovely. I once owned a Moffet electric range that was that size and about that old, I can't remember where I sold it, that was another life time ago.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!
Love and hugs, Cindy
