I’ll be there in 20!


Last week Nester called and said she and Reeve were getting ready to go thrifting to find stuff for our next craft day.  “Do you want to come along??”  I had just walked in the door from the grocery store and was getting ready to tackle 20 tasks, unload the dishwasher, wash the dog, and get the slow cooker going before the kids got off the bus.  YESSSSSS I’m in, meet you in 20 minutes!!!!!  I’m soooooooooo glad I dropped everything to join my friends.  Not only did we have the best time and I giggled alot……….
I also found this at Goodwill!!!
For $15.00!!!
I love mannequins and dress forms of any kind.  I would have them all over my house if my husband wasn’t opposed to the idea.  Plus I guess having mannequins all over the house might scare me at night, so I stick to a few in my studio.

While I was trying to find a home for my newest mannequin addition, I noticed one of my favorite collections wasn’t living up to it’s potential.

I instantly had a new display for some of my favorite things!

    I love it! I do wish I could find a mannequin or two myself! I think I love them like you do, but I haven't one as of yet.

    Fabulous find! And good for you to put it to use so quickly & give it a proper home. Ive been wanting one of these for a long time now to drape my necklaces on but i do love your idea & could do the same (although my pin collection isnt nearly as developed as yours – oh my!).

    How fun to go thrifting with friends. That is a great find! As a little girl our family would visit the farm (Old Trail Farm, Ithaca, Michigan) where my dad worked as a migrant worker when he was a boy. The house we stayed in was built in the Late 1800's and of course the room that I stayed in, by myself I might add, had a window that peered into the attic window, where an old mannequin sat with an old lace wedding dress on. I started a novel about that old farmhouse and this reminds me that I'd better get back to work on it.
