Mail....

I have been checking my mailbox everyday for the last few weeks like a little kid. I had ordered a vintage dress form to place next to my sewing machine and it has finally arrived. Yeah!! It was only $20 from http://www.ltdcommodities.com/. What a bargain, right? I have always had a thing with forms....I guess because I worked in visual merchandising and was always dressing windows. I think she looks nice next to my sewing maching and maybe she will give me some inspiration : )

By the way, when I put it together Christopher asked "where is her head?" Kids are too funny.

I have been working on a few Christmas gifts and a birthday present for my friend. I thought I would show you another apron I made last week. I know, you are sick of aprons by now. But I think they are so cute and I think everyone should have one! Oh, and my new form serves another purpose....she can be my model.
I am going to link this up over at my friend Allie's. Check out her site for lots of other crafty ladies : )

ohh! I like that apron and that dress form! I am starting to really like vintage-y looking things but my apartment is decorated so modern that I have to be careful about what I add to it or it will start to look cluttered! Looks like I need to redecorate... lol

Everytime I see a form like that, I like of Cinderella and all of those animals creating that beautiful dress for her.

The apron is adorable. Maybe one day I'll start cooking and I'll need one :)

Love that...I've seen them around and like the look, but have no real need for it! By the way, can you teach me to sew?!

Happy weekend!
