MY DRESS FORM HAS A NEW DRESS



Hi Everyone, thank you for visiting me today. About a month ago I was up north Michigan at an Antique Store, I spotted this dress hanging on a hanger, all wrinkled, but I loved the wonderful combination of peach with blue and I loved the beautiful flower print in the blue material. It reminded me of vintage feed sacks. When I saw this dress I thought oh it will be too expensive, well to my surprise it was $10.00 and then 20 percent off, so the price of this lovely dress was $8.00. This week I decided to iron it, and it came out pretty good, I did not want to have the iron too high or spray water on it, because it is very old material, I think it came out pretty good. I still want to add some ribbons and flowers.

You know how much I love Marie Antoinette, well this dress reminds me of a dress Marie would wear everyday, maybe while out in her garden. I just love it. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Terri

I received my copy of Creating Vintage Charm and am enjoying oouring over the lucious pictures and reading every word. Congrats to you for being such a big part of it.
I also want to tell you how much I loved seeing your sunroom. I would spend every available hours there...it is dreamy!

Beautiful, what a find!
I do think Marie would have worn some thing like this at her little Hamlet. It fits right in.
Hugs,
