Birthday Girl

My Lily Mae turns 7 today . It's amazing how fast time goes by 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

Happy birthday to your sweet daughter! Sounds like you created the most lovely celebration for her.

LOVE that dress! What a beautiful collection you have!

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
