Heavenly Little Dress form

I am so pleased with my dress form remake. Here is what it looks like now...

This is how it looked before...
I have had this little dress form for many years and enjoyed it in its dark coloring..it has been a nice to place to show off one of my Grandmothers brooches. But in the last year when I have been transforming everything to white. I kept seeing her and thinking..."What if..."



I placed angel wings on her that I had had on the Christmas tree..I tied torn pieces of fabric and pieces of ribbon and lace.  I added a little glitter her and there.

I think she looks heavenly!



She now sits on the mantle..as she did before, but now with her new look. I wish I had 3 pink roses to put in those bottles next to her. I keep telling myself..spring is coming and along with it the joy of cut flowers in the house!

Thanks for visiting and I hope your weekend was a good one.
