VINTAGE INSPIRED DRESSMAKERS DUMMY & OTHER THINGS!!~~



Well I haven't really stopped doing "STUFF" since last evening~~~~

I am busy preparing for a little party in just over a week, and a girl just has to try & make things look nice??

well that's what I think anyway...

I like to try to make little events memorable & kind of unique to me...
(so we shall see what the guests think..cough!! cough!! say no more)..

ANYWAY....in between doing "MY STUFF"...I actually did this today...

1....covered a cute little paper mache dressmaker's dummy in VINTAGE dressmaking patterns ...

I then embellished her waist with a cute faux diamente buckle & glued some little buttons down her front..

finished off with a safety pin attached..

I kept her "neck" au naturaalll..just tying some string around it...(OHH that doesn't sound too good does it??)....you know what I mean??..

2....covered the paper mache letter "A" with vintage music sheet paper...
embellished with a faux diamond belt buckle..upon which i stuck a scrabble letter "A"...

So I have to say AGAIN...I am just LOVIN MY MOD PODGE...~~~

also went to my all time favourite NEW store..TYPO ... yesterday & bought this fabulous CANVAS letter/number print thingey..
which I have hung next to the TV...

Indulged in buying some lovely FRENCH inspired cutlery from TARGET!!!

as well as a NEW lamp/base from the above establishment..!!!

Anyway, thats it from me for the minute..

ps..No more bird attacks the last few days..so that's good!!~~

I'm sure your party guests will love and appreciate the little touches you've added to your beautiful home Andrea. Wish we had the Typo store up here. Will have to check them out online.
Hope you continue to have a great weekend.
