What's New

She is! 
Well She's new to me.
After years of admiring Deb's dress form(s) 
in her Art room.
Yes, I said forms..she has 4 now.
Two with cages at the bottom.
Super Cool!
 Deb called me up last Sunday to ask me if I 
wanted her (the dress form) sight unseen.
It was a serendipitous moment.
She said she was fantastic and had the original stand 
with wheels and the finial at the top.
 Sounded good to me and a fair price. So I said Yes!
Deb and her husband Steve fixed her up a bit.
I'm not that handy so I am very appreciative for that.
She is well used, has neat brass arm hole plates 
and has ink marks and spots.
The Artist in me says leave her as is...
the Monk-ish (one of my favorite TV show)
part of me says, "fix the spots".
Which put's me in the thinking stages
of wanting to alter her.
Perhaps all black? Or half black?
Or decoupage her? 
For now I will adorn her with some jewelry that I am making. 
Made this necklace yesterday.
Any suggestions on name for her?
I'm leaning toward Jewelee.
Thank You a thousand times over Deb for 
calling me and telling me about the dress form.
She looks great in the office!

And this is New too!
Just a little project I got done today. 
I re-purposed this old wooden frame
to display earrings for future home shows.
That is if I follow through with that.
Kept the glass in it for the reflective quality.
Spay painted the wood frame to a flat black.
Added some of my Crescent Marbled paper.
Normally used for French matting.
Attached some framing wire I had with
upholstery tacks to hold it in place on the side.
And I'm fairly pleased as to how it turned out.
Now I got to get busy and fill it up.

Your welcome for calling, sharing, hauling, and the fixin'. she's a peach, and you know how I feel, she's perfect in her "imperfection". Hopefully my new one will be done this week. She was a wreck, but will be very pretty when she is done.

p.s. I can have more dress forms I have a bigger house, LOL!
