Giving her a new look.

Hi lovely ones!  I hope that you are enjoying this beautiful fall weather.  Love the chilly nights and the cool, sunny days, don't you?

Today I decided it was time to give this mannequin a new look.  She has been wearing the same outfit for over a year so it's time.

So I started digging through my stash of laces and trims.  Made a quick trip to the thrift for a lace camisole.  Cut up and old pair of curtains for her skirt.  Added a few jewels, some rosettes and stuck her with a gazillion straight pins.  She didn't seem to mind though because she knew she'd be looking purdee in no time at all....

Now the question is....the cameo necklace or the pearls???

Hope that you all have a wonderful week.  Be sure and start it off on the right foot by creating, making, sewing, writing, photographing, baking, cooking, or finding something wonderful and sharing it with us!

Very pretty, Sissie! I love the cameo. It seems to sit so nicely right in the middle of that insert on the top.

Guess I am with the "with-it" crowd. lol Although I LOVE pearls I really like the way the cameo lays against the lace. She looks just beautiful- xo Diana

Sweet and lovely! I like the pearls! I think the cameo detracts from that fabulous lace! Patsy from

Oh, so pretty! I love all the lace and I adore cameos but I vote for the pearls. Hope your day is lovely.

She sure is pretty after her makeover, Sissie! My Natasha is a bit envious, she is feeling rather under dressed! Now you have inspired me to create a pretty lacy concoction for her to wear:) Oh, how about the pearls and cameo together?!

Kathi said...

Beautiful and I choose the Pearls as they are so feminine to me!

She is truly lovely and my vote is the pearls! I have looked for lace things at my thrift store but not had any luck. I love what you were able to find!
