I'm off!

Just a quick post to say that I'll be back from my trip on Sunday night. Just in time to participate in Sunday's Show & Tell. This week featuring vintage bling! One of my favorite collections.

My honey got back from his trip to Japan yesterday and boy was I glad to see him. He had a great but short trip. When I got home from work yesterday he was home waiting and couldn't wait to show me this.

Let me explain. The day before he left for his trip, he was out in garage working on some project. I went out there to be with him and ended up taking apart a vintage dress form I had out there that had ugly fabric covering it. Well, I took the whole thing apart and left the dress form in pieces hoping that I would remember how to put it back together. I was so touched that he did it for me. And the best part, I didn't even ask him to do it. Now, my hubby is a pretty tolerant guy to put up with all my stuff, and if asked, he'll help me on projects from time to time, but he has never just done something like this for me without out me asking him. I almost cried.

I will be taking this girl to farm chicks where she will be outfitted in a vintage crinoline and some pretty necklaces.



Here she is modeling an apron I had Joy make for me.

And finally, I finished my very own shopping cart liner for my cart. I thought about taking it on my trip with me, but I decided I just don't want to bother with it this time. I love how cute it turned out.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Now who but you would have thought to make a basket liner? Very very chic my dear! I love your dress form...I had a great wire dress form that I kept in my bedroom that belonged to my great grandmother...in all the moves we did somehow it went missing...I just hope that whoever has her now is loving her like I did! Enjoy California dreamin' and take lots of pics to show us!

LOVE THAT SHOPPING CART insert! oh my goodness! I need to make one for mine but haven't yet. Maybe this will inspire me. My husband thought I was absolutely crazy when I requested a metal shopping cart for Christmas. He said, "Are you for real" Now when I drag him to the outdoor flea markets...he gets it!
