Well, with all of this snow and being stuck in the house I have found some time to get back to work. I absolutely love dress forms. I have six of them in my studio that have been waiting quite a while for a new look. The chic madame above was newly adorned with vintage ribbons and a vintage curtain tack. I will be dressing the others in the coming weeks.
It's a well known fact among my friends and family that I am a ribbon freak. I was so excited that my first order to arrive from the Atlanta Gift Mart was a box full of beautiful silk and satin ribbons. I love the way they look on the shabby tags.I'm sure everyone is talking about the snow but I had to add to it. I do not ever remember this much snow on the ground or this many snow days, early dismissals and late openings for school! Waking up to another 14" after 24" two weeks ago with additional inches in between just about put me over the edge. It is really beautiful but I am so done!! We are a skiing family so you'd think I would like the snow. Yes I would, in VT!! (which by the way, is not getting as much as we are here in CT). So here are a few pics from yesterdays storm:The one below is looking out my upstairs bathroom window. Big icicles!!
