My little lady, AnnaMae, is all ready for dinner and a dance! This dress form is from Cerri's shop. She has the loveliest items. You must check her out! The silk ribbon is from Pretty Petals. Another lovely shop! Glitter is painted on the dress form to add as jewelry. Feather ribbon and pink pearls complete the look!
LOVE it! This tiny little dress form reminded me of my childhood. My best friend, Dona and I, would 'dress' our Barbies. We spend HOURS doing this. I was lucky enough to have beautiful scraps of velvet, silk, ribbons...My late Grandfather owned and operated a sewing and upholstery business and did only antiques. My Grandmother was the epitome of PINK! VELVET! SILK!
It's nice to go back to my heritage-New York and 'see' my late grandparents work in the prominent homes and museums. It's sad that this is a dying art form.
I promise to upload our Pumpkin Patch pictures soon. D loved it! She picked a pretty one for $4.
We had our photos in black and white before it became popular. I love this photo. I came up with the flower arrangement of deep burgundy roses, blush pink fill in, and tied with gorgeous burgundy ribbon. I remember the florist insisted on keeping my idea. Ha! Now you don't see an arrangement without it tied with ribbon. Hmmmm....
and Mommy is so excited to 'dress' the house this year even if she is worn out from working FT outside the home, chasing Little Pumpkin, and trying to craft somewhere in between!
*Note to self--get help for the flower fetish!*
Christmas ought to be interesting this year! Anyone know how to hang a real Christmas Tree from the ceiling? Little D is going to be inside that tree, I know it! I'll be putting my soft ornaments or my unbreakable Hallmark one's up this year~~Ha!
I did buy this awesome felt ornie kit from Alicia Paulson! Can't wait to snuggle in bed and work on those! Check them out~~can you say cute :)
What I believe my tree will look like on 12/26.
MIL likes to remind Big D that his brother dragged their Christmas Tree around the house one year around Little D's age. *YIKES* The two dogs ought to enjoy that if it happens!
Happy Autumn !
Welcome to the Halloween Party!! You can find other fellow partiers---A Fanciful Twist

Lucky asking Mommy to have D quit boinking her with the balloon.
