Show Me Your Form!




Tiffany at ShabbyScraps is hosting this fabulous dress form party!. When I read her post about how her husband feels about her forms, I had to participate and give her support!!. {Some} men just "don't get" certain items women need to have in our lives.


I don't own a full size form, yet...but it's calling my name from somewhere. I do have a small collection of mini ones, and here they are. I haven't given them names but I love them all.


This one is about 24'' tall. I love the blue flowery dress with the ruffled ribbon collar and hem:





The next one is 21", she used to have a brown and white painted dress, obviously I had to give her a makeover. I painted her blue and decoupaged roses, and painted the pink polka dots, much better!. This is one of my favorite ones!







I had to have this one when I saw it in the PBTeen catalog a while back. They had a full size version, which I was tempted to buy, but didn't. I wish I had though, I love the roses on it... oh, well!






Whenever I can, I buy unfinished ones. I'm hoping to make beautiful paper dresses for them...when I find the time. This one I kept it as is, only added the pink netted skirt, and a beautiful necklace (bracelet) by Sarah.







This one, many of you may remember her from Target:







This pink beauty was bought at Bombay Kids (out of business):






And last but not least, the next two are 12" tall, both were purchased at TJ Maxx, a few moons ago. The black and white one is sporting a bracelet from GAP Kids.






I have a couple of others that didn't make it to the photo shoot!
The funny thing is, yesterday afternoon as I was setting up my makeshift background for the photos outside, I was having a bit of a hard time propping up my background. My husband was in the pool`and I was telling him that I was shooting my mini dress forms to post on the blog in support of a fellow blogger. He's like," oh brother, is there like a $50 thousand prize for showing these around?". I replied, "No...why don't you get out of the pool, and help me by holding the background up for me?". To my surprise, he did!!. After a few minutes of him stading there, he said: " Are you done yet?, it feels cold out here!". I thanked him for helping me and off he went!!
Well, I hope you all enjoy my collection. Thank you so much for stopping by!
And, Thank You, Tiffany for hosting such a beautiful party!!
Take care and have fun,

Rosa

Oooo, your collection is beautiful! I was feeling quite smug when I told Tiffany I had TWO dress forms to show off. Ha! You put me to shame with your many beauties!

Was looking at your paper parasols, too -- just gorgeous. Your inspiration board is just, well, inspirational! And I love the stripes in your craft room. SOO much work, but so worth the effort!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I've blogrolled you and will be stopping back by to see your latest creations!

Warmest regards, Ronda

I love little table top forms, Rosa. Don't bracelets look like necklaces? How utterly cute.

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Rosa! I really enjoyed your dressforms! I love the life size ones and wish I had one but I think these smaller ones have tons of charm. Love all of them and am inspired to get another one (I had one and for the life of me don't know what I did with it - but that's nothing new with me!) I need to check out the rest of your posts! Thanks to your husband for being a good sport too! - Jeannette

Grace said...

How adorable your dress forms are. I have 1 with pink flowers and one wire one (not too big)I purchased both at Home Goods. Difficult in NY to find vintage old things. I am going to Stormville an hour away on SUnday for a flea/antique market and I am so excited I hope I find an old dress form then can bling her up a little. Thanks for sharing. Hugs Grace

Pamela Jane said...

Such a lovely collection, especially the one you painted and decoupaged! They must have quite a conversation among them -- you know how it is when so many women get together.

Rhondamum said...
