Still Creating....

I had made this using pieces from that vintage wedding dress I showed you, I did finally cut it, see the cut little pom pom trim. I sewed it to make it bunch up a bit, like ruffles and added it around this old frame .I also had made this for the show what you create blog party, but didn't get a chance to photograph it, so here it is!

Here is the whole view ,I think I'll use it when I'll be a vendor at the next Funky Junk show. And hang it from my new vintage dress form I picked up this weekend.
Photobucket
Isn't it pretty! It stands in my living room right now becasue my studio is already jam packed with junk . I put one of the old dresses I picked up at the flea on her, with one of my favorite old millinery flowers.
Photobucket
Do you ever go shopping and after you wish you would have bought that thing you seen??Well that was the case with this old vintage dress.I had seen it at the flea and was kicking myself when I got home for not buying it, but luckily I got the vendors card and walla I contacted her and bought it .I felt so lucky! I think I have a vintage dress addiction!
Photobucket
And at the same little shop I picked up the dress form I found this cute little old scale. I just love it .It sits on my kitchen table ,I had one but it wasn't as cute as this one, so I sold the other.
Photobucket
Is there anyone else who loved old dolls like I do??I am sure I am not the only one, right? Well a new antique shop opened up in town and yep you guessed it I had to buy these.The look darling up against the white bedding.Sigh....
Photobucket
Thanks to everyone who created with me on Friday ,I tried to visit as many of you as I could .I loved all the creativeness! I have a big news ,I can hardly wait to share with you ,but I'll have to wait even though I am not very good at keeping surprises!

I love dolls I have them all over my house . My daughter calls them mom's girls. That frame is so different that lace is so nice. I have been trying to find a cheap one. I had a dream couple nights ago that I was collecting prom dresses. I have no where for any.
will be back .

those dollies are wonderful! I love old dolls and I dont think we can ever have too many of them. My poor old biker husband lives amoung a whole bunch of old dolls and teddy bears and lots of pink stuff! People meet him and then come here and say... "he lives here?" lol! I'm sure your husband loves your old dolls too! haha!
have a great day

I love your new photo! Or did I already told you that? I am just back in blogland from an extended break. Still painting in the new office, sorry, but I couldn't make your blog party, next time hopefully. Hope you are doing well and that all your little ones are doing well too, hugs LiLi

June said...

My goodness Andrea, I LOVE that gorgeous frame. It looks awesome hanging from your manny. I am so glad that you were able to get your hands on the dress, because it is so pretty.
hugs

Sue said...

Love the frame! I can't wait to see what you do with the rest of that wedding dress. Your dress form is wonderful. I ended up keeping mine in the front hall where she can greet visitors, although that wasn't the original plan. She's definitely happy there though! And the dresses!! Good gracious how lovely!!!

As always, thanks for your beautiful photos and inspiration,

Sue
