Hello Stranger!

Wow, it has been along time since I was on my blog!!!!
now that I am a working gal!!!
our shop is doing wonderful and it is really keeping me busy, lots of creating....which I love!!!
just wish there were more hours in the day!
here is a project I did at Christmas time, I needed something pretty to display jewelry on...



I had this foam dress form...


I like foam because you can pin items on her...
so I went to all my vintage lace and doilies and started cutting and gluing...




an vintage slip for the bottom







pinned on some pretty feather wings..



and added my jewelry!
