Birthday Girl

My Lily Mae turns 7 today . It's amazing how fast time goes by ..it seams only yesterday she was just a little baby.
Every girl wants to be a princess right? I created this pretty garland out of strips of fabric, I had so many little pieces of this and that , and this was a great way to use them all ..Isn't it pretty!I have another one in the works of creams and whites and vintage linens.I am going to use them when I will be a vendor at the next funky junk sisters show for my booth!

A close up of all the pretty fabrics. I used strips ranging from 2by8 inches to 3 by 12 inches. With a little burlap mixed in , It really didn't take too long at all, i tied them onto a sturdy piece of ribbon.
And a party wouldn't be a party without another old dress I picked up off of ebay, I really love this one, with it's velvet waist band.



And layers of tulle ruffles. I think i am addicted to these !



Hope you have a lovely weekend , We got Lily a new bike so I am sure we'll be out on some bike rides! xo Andrea

Lily- big 7!! Happy Birthday. I love that the garland uses up so many scraps that might otherwise go to waste. Very neat

The garland is fabulous and will be a great accent anywhere. The dress reminded me of one my mother had that she gave me....the waist was so tiny! So, do you have a large collection of dresses? Asking because of Jen's comment....thanks, debbie
