Dress forms are fun to dress with vintage finds from estate sales, yard sales, and flea market finds! Whenever I find vintage jewelry, millinery, and vintage clothes, it's great to layer items on them! You can never have enough embellishments! This J.R Bauman dress form with the cage bottom is my favorite. Believe it or not I found it at Goodwill for only $35.00 The second picture is how I have it dressed with my favorite pink roses apron. The third pictured is a form that a customer brought to me to sell, when I had my own antique store a few years ago. She just knew I would love it, and sold it to me for only $40.00 Included with the form was the 1920's all beaded flapper dress and glass beaded antique hat! What a great deal! The last of my dress forms (pictured above) that I found at a yard sale, I just decoupaged vintage barkcloth fabric to her and added a vintage hat, different strands of lovely pearls, and draped some beautiful vintage lace over her shoulders. I love them all, it is hard to pick a favorite, but I believe I have them in order of favorites. If I should come across another dress form, I will just have to add it to my collection! They really make a lovely statement to any room in your house!

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy spring day! I thought I would share some springtime colored displays and some of my vintage easter bunnies! The set of three bunnies I believe that they are old 1940's cake toppers! I found them at an estate sale for only $1.00 for all three! I just love how cute they look on my vintage pink shelf! Displayed with some of my Mccoy pottery is my favorite 1920's wooden bunny cart! I adore the colors and the chippy paint! I am always on the lookout for vintage pastel quilts, toys, little girl dresses, and lots of pink easter bonnets, and just about anything else that is vintage pink! Let me know what you love to collect! I would love to know what makes your heart sing! Well, I hope you all enjoy this wonderful spring day!
