playing dress up...

Good Morning!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day! We spent the weekend at the campground and despite the weather had a great time. I know I promised some pictures but it poured on Saturday and it was quite chilly on Sunday. I wanted to get some flowers planted but with some frost warnings for the week, I decided to wait. However, my sweetest little camping neighbor Catie brought over a flat of pretty pansies for Mother's Day! Thank you Catie... We both thought this little bunny looked scared! Then I showed her my flat bunny... I think this was supposed to be a stepping stone but I lean it against a tree. My good friends Don & Bert gave this to me when they left camping to live full time in Florida ~ I think of them every time I look at it. As the rain fell on Saturday Jim asked if I wanted to go to downtown Plymouth and hit the antique shops. I actually said no! I am saving my money for Brimfield on Wednesday!! Knowing it would be raining on Saturday I came prepared and decided to play dress up on another mannequin... I am having so much fun dressing these little ladies up...
I wanted to do another one but the rainy weather was making an afternoon nap sound really good! Especially after a night around the campfire with my girlfriends ~ and knowing that the skies would clear I would be sitting around another fire that night!! I am not sure if I will put this one in my Etsy shop or in my little corner at the shop. Until I decide she is sitting on my mantel in front of my favorite mirror, the one that started my collection... Thank you to Karen over at The Graphics Fairy for generously sharing the wonderful images I used on her. Karen hosts Brag Monday and Susan over at Between Naps On The Porch hosts Metamorphosis Monday. So today I am party hopping to show this little lady off. I hope you can party hop too and see what everyone is sharing today. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Your dress forms are darling! I love small versions of bigger things also. It's on my list to do a miniature fairy garden one of these days.

Your camping weekend sounds like it was fun, despite the rain (I love rain).

I'm a first timer at your blog and I noticed that you are from Canton, MA. I'm from Dedham, so I guess I'm a neighbor - just thought I'd say hi.
