I'll admit...

She's not the most attractive mannequin hat display, but once I picked her up, I just couldn't put her down. Something about her..I loved. Found her today at a local thrift shop. Not too bad for a Sunday pick!

Flocked burnt sienna with a heavy chrome base..very mod. The color is growing on me, but as Jenna held her in her lap on the way home, she asked what I would have paid had she been turquoise. That's a good question! Now we're trying to come up with a name for her since we always name our mannequins. :) Any suggestions? All we have so far is Greta.

A Little Behind...

with my Spring purging.

It's something I have been putting off for awhile today, I grabbed my camera and started. I have way too many things and I am going through one of my simplify stages. :)

Does a girl really NEED all this stuff? Some might...I don't need STUFF anymore!
I have many boxes packed away and it will take some time to get through it, but I will. :)

Here's a peek at what's going to be available for purchase here or listed the website!

The Crowning Touch

This old house was the home I spent my first year in. A few old black & whites are the only memories I have, but I've lived right next door to it my entire life! Strange, isn't it? Our neighbor's home is coming along nicely, and I'm so excited for them. This week they've been working on the addition of a turret. It gives the house a totally different look! I can hardly wait to see the interior when it's done. I have been tempted to peek inside, but have kept away from the windows!
You can follow along as my neighbor's home receives her much needed face lift. :) Just click here
