I'm so excited!

Kathy called and said OMG!!!
Look what she found!!!!

I have been looking for a dress form forever.
She only had to tell me twice to put her in my car.
She gave her to me!
The guilt set in pretty quick.
We are trading so I'm coming up with some things I think she would like to have.






I think she is beautiful, she's not one of those cool forms with words on them.  I'm still looking for one of those.



It was a garage sale/estate sale combo thing.
This was their 3rd and final week.
Just think what we missed!

Pretty back.


Isn't she beautiful????


A little tattered.

Just a little lopsided.


I do have to clean her..She is quite dirty.
I think I will name her Graycie

Pretty feet

Cute top..

Nice and rusty.
I lover her!


And this is what I found at the same garage sale.
I'm happy.


Several old hymnels

Very worn, just how I like them.

I bought 2 beautiful lace valences.


This beautiful old platter.

This cute little lantern without the top.

I'm thrilled with my finds.  It's Saturday morning and we are off again.
If you are going out junking this morning I hope you get good stuff that makes you happy.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for listening.
