For instance, this is the Christening gown my sisters and I were baptized in. The little bonnet rests nearby. Although the dress is yellowed from many years in the attic, it's precious to me.
Up close you can see the sweetest little pearl heart at the bodice.
We also found this old board with vintage wallpaper. Pretty florals scattered about...
A couple of mismatched shoes we wore as toddlers...
Someday I'd love to own a vintage dress form for display in my own studio...a dream to hold onto. In the meantime I accepted this old petticoat from my Mom, and will save it for that dress form. It looks cute hanging from an old hanger for now:
With Valentine's day coming up, I'm starting to think about romantic creations. Scattering supplies around always help fuel inspiration:
Perhaps I'll use this tea-dyed crepe paper and pink feathers...
...or this sweet lace trim I picked up in Paris last fall, as well as the vintage blue ribbon from Tracey's shop. So much prettiness to create with!
I'll be sharing over at these great parties:
