My Dear Lady has been around the block.....
A fond Good Day to all the girls participating in 2nd Time Around Tuesday with our lovely Diane from A Picture is worth a 1,000 words. Please click on the 2nd time button to visit more of the ladies partaking of todays event!
I would like to introduce you to a new participant whom,if she could talk would surely share with you that she has been around the block a few times! Ladies...please meet my new dress form!
I have named her "VICTORIA ROSE"! Victoria after my BFF Vicki,and my love of Victorian Decor. And Rose after my love of roses and my Grandma Rose!
Victoria has resided at Vickis in her lovely primitive kitchen for quite a while,but my BFF wanted an antique spinning wheel ,so I bought Victoria from her for a steal!
I have ALWAYS wanted an antique dress form,and because Vicki knew it I was the lucky one whom received her to treasure! She came "dressed" in this outfit....she was quite the Ol' Prim gal displayed with her Prim hat and apron,but Victoria needs a new dress,or perhaps a creative me needs to re-style her outfit to fit into my Victorian Old-world style...or perhaps I shall change her with the seasons!
I have just started to invision her new outfits,and this hat below purchased Sunday at the Goodwill for $1.49 may be a great start...I see it adorned with a Rose bouquet and perhaps becoming her first Easter Bonnet.
To the left of her is an antique footstool piled with pillows,one of which has a vintage doily attached! Well you know how I love vintage linens!
Vicki (not to be confused with Victoria Rose) also gifted me with a dust ruffle that is to small for my bed I have draped it over her with her new hat...what do you think?Perhaps another treasure to be made for 2nd time around Tuesday?????
Ok ladies...please join Victoria Rose and I visiting all the girls over at Dianes!
And to my BFF..Vicki...enjoy your Sister coming to visit you today from Florida. You know I am going to miss our morning chats,and lol...I refuse to mention that I am trying to not be jealous,as you know how I wish I had a Sister, but thank you for sharing your dress form treasure with me! And now" Victoria Rose" (is it ok to talk to your dress form?) you and I have some visitng of our own to do!
