A new dressed up mannequin.

Well, I swore I would never sell her, but someone made an offer I couldn't resist!  
So now, I'm in the process of creating another pretty mannequin.
This one is a smaller bust mannequin that has seen it's better days.  I painted it then started adding the pretty stuff.
First, a crocheted piece of lace, a rosette created from an old doily, and then I used the head band from a vintage bridal veil to simulate a crown.  Next I added a cameo brooch and a large dried flower.
 I found some wings at Hobby Lobby to give her an angelic look.

Her skirt was created from the same vintage bridal veil.

She's heading to the booth to take center stage.
I'll probably add some white lights underneath the skirt for display.
I'm not sure she can upstage her predecessor, but she's gonna give it a try!
Hope you like her.

Enjoy your summer.

You can take a mannequin and make her look like a matter what shape she was in before!!! This one is a beauty, Sissie...just like her sister was! You're the fairy godmother of mannies!!!!
Have a wonderful week.

I almost thought this was one of mine when it popped up in my feed...LOL! I haven't done one in a long while though...and I often wonder where they all ended up. So pretty!

I can't believe you were able to part with your mannequin. Of course, the new one is so lovely. You may have to make several to share.

Sissie, everything you do is amazing. Your new mannequin is beautiful!

Thank you for your kind words on the Orlando tragedy. It was so much easier to handle when it was across the country or across the world, but right in your back yard shines a whole new light on terrorists and how they are infiltrating our country. We are so sad, mad, scared and want action NOW so no other community goes through this! It is incredible to see how Orlando has pulled together and the kindness...People are even nicer on the roads!

Such a beauty! Makes me want to give it a try. Old forms hardly turn up here. But I will have to consider a second look at some really bad ones I have come across. Yours is magical! So sweet of you to leave a good word about my new guest room. Happy summer days!
