Birds of A Feather

Do birds of a feather


really flock together?


How about birds of many different feathers?


I found this lovely antique hat and was inspired to
dress my mannequin "Millie".

Of course she needed some accessories too.




Yes I'll admit
I still love to play dress up.
Do you?

What a beautiful and unusual hat! I think Millie needs a vintage mink coat to wear with her hat, don't you?

Danielle,
LOVE your dress form, I have one just like it but I took off her fabric because it was just in shreds anyway.
I bought an old corset off of ebay and want to put it on her but there are so many laces that it may take me a week to do it!
Hahahaha! I'll be sure to post when I finally get around to it.

I think Millie is looking good! Feathers are so popular right now, aren't they? And I still love playing dress up, especially in vintage clothes!

How fun dressing up a mannequin and what a charming hat! An elderly lady once gave me a very old Salvation Army bonnet, sadly it got lost in the process of moving. Wishing you a good weekend Danielle, blessings Pam

Ooh, "Millie" looks tres chic :-) I too have a dress form and I too still like to play dress-up...Hee, hee, hee. But you know, I haven't named mine yet...hmmm, I wonder what a good name for her would be? :-) Have a wonderful weekend.
