Isn't She Lovely?

Please excuse the styling in these pictures; we're moving in nine days!!! Isn't this just the most gorgeous dress form?! I found it about three months ago when Dawn and I went junking in Paola. I didn't buy it at the time because I simply didn't have room for it. But now that the new house is in my sights, I called yesterday and found out the flea market still had it. Jason, Dash and I made a b-line south this morning to pick it up. I just love it!!!

I already know where I'm putting it. I'm doing a funked-out French country design style in the living room and this dress form will be perfect.

Here's Jason acting cute. As I was gathering my new additions for the photo, he said flatly, "Wow, this is veritable treasure trove." Ha! As you can see, I picked up a lot more in Paola than just the dress form.

I plan on putting the trunk in the living room, too. The rest will be mixed in here or there. I'll have to find something interesting for the tub.

Jason also made a crack about how this lamp looks like something that belongs in my great Aunt LaRue's house. This was not a compliment. I think my aunt is about 100 years old now and I don't know that she's put anything new in her house since about 1957. We had a productive day not just here, but at the Nebraska Furniture Mart. We needed it all -- washer/drier, a bed for Dash, a desk for Jason. We are just ready to be moved already!!!
