What a great blog party theme :-) Tiffany at Shabby Scraps is hosting the "Show me your Dress Form" Blog party. I decided to join in on the fun :-). This is my gal Victoria ~ named after the Victorian Era ~ as she is frequently dressed in 1800s clothing. I do dress her in Edwardian clothing too . . . but "Edward" didn't seem to suit her very well, LOL.
This lovely lady was purchased for only $5 at a local auction. I was thrilled to bring her home. My hubby thinks she will scare away our guests (she inhabits the Guest Bedroom). I think she is quite lovely in her Edwardian and Victorian whites.
My female friends understand her. Victoria was even mentioned recently in a Thank You card . . . so she can't be all that scary, LOL.
Today is also Friday Flea Market ~ My theme this week is Summer Whites ~ to give my Dress form a little more attention. My items this week can be found in my Etsy Shop . Photos are shown below.
~ A Stunning Edwardian Blouse with Irish Crochet and floral detail ~
A stunning Edwardian Tea Dress (too small for my size 10 Dress Form)
A close-up photo of the sleeve
A sweet little cotton camisole with delicate handmade lace
I also have a stunning crocheted bedspread ~ 72 inches square
and finally, a lovely Battenburg Lace Tablecloth ~ a generous 60 x 116 inches
Thank you for looking and thank you to our hostess Polly for hosting the weekly Friday Flea Market. FYI ~ I will be away for a few days, returning next Friday.
All items purchased this week will be mailed on August 8, 2008. Thank you for visiting and have a great week!
