Tuesday Treasures

I have been having the most incredible luck lately. I have aquired not one. . .but two vintage dress forms in as many days. Sometimes people don't realize what a treasure they have and that was the case today. I found Ava, neglected, alone and in need of some tlc. She was feeling a bit naked so we gave her a little something to make her more comfortable. She is going to take an entirly different direction from her predecessors. . Betty and Olivia. We will also have to come up with a name for our other lady joining us in a few days. Any ideas? We are open to suggestions. . she looks similar to Olivia, and has a stand. Speaking of Olivia. .

She is far from done, but here is a little peek at how she is coming along. There will be lots of lace, bits of pink and plenty of sparkle in just a few more days. I have been finding it difficult to find the time but have set aside a block this week to complete her transformation. Until next time. . hope you find some amazing treasures this week too.

Oh Wowie! How wonderful for you!! Can you pass me some of that luck?! I think a wonderful name would be Octavia!

Can't wait to see what you do with her!

Artful Blessings,
