Pearls and Lace Thursday #68 Vintage Dress Form!!

My very own Vintage Dress Form!!!
Here she is!  I'm so excited! 

She has a lovely figure from the front,

is a bit catywompus in the bust

and looks GREAT in PINK!!

I think she's gorgeous!  Love how the vintagy goodness just makes her perfect!
I found her online, and since she was close, my husband said, let's go get her!  He was so awesome!  He knew I've been wanting one for a long time! (in fact, have you shown one to your husband yet??? I did so he'd KNOW what one looked like should he see one when I wasn't around!!).
We traveled to get her yesterday from a wonderful lady named Judy.
Thanks so much Judy...you made my whole month!!!
I've got some ideas in my head for a name, but that will come in time. 

There are a number of lovely blog parties that I'm going to be joining this week, so take a look at the list to the right of my favorite parties!  The parties listed are so much fun!  I go there many times during the week to find posts that are beautiful!  You ladies are so artistic!!

It's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!  Link up your blog post to the link below and share something lovely with us!  Please not a sales item or a blog addy, but your post's url code.

Hope you all have a lovely week! Y'all are making mine wonderful!!!
Blessings, Doni

She's gorgeous, remember when I found mine, I walked into a goodwill and there she was, I almost threw myself on her. She had just been marked down for $75 to $50 of course I would have paid the $75. In the same store I found a vintage white Christmas tree I had been searching for for $20...Yep it made my month too!

Hi Doni! Congrats on your new arrival! I'm sure you'll deck her out in style! Mine is an old netted form and I keep her in my dining room - changing her attire per season. She is my good Lady Cordelia - thank you very much - and she loves hats, too! I see you have a linky - perhaps I'll introduce her to you and link up tomorrow night - bed for now, school in the morning, try to get something up tomorrow evening! She just happens to be wearing pearls and lace as we speak!!

Happy Pink Saturday Doni Sweetie...
Oh she is just beautiful. A gorgeous scented Rose. I love her petals and elegance. She looks so pretty in pink and those pearls are just the crowning glory.

I named my dress form Minnie (after my grandmother) she is wearing Halloween gear right now, but will be dressed for the holidays when I find the perfect dress. Aren't they so much fun?

Thank you for sharing sweet friend. I so enjoyed myself this evening. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
