white show sneak peeks...

Hello!
It sure has been hard for me to get back into blogging for some reason.
Although I did enjoy catching up with you all this past week (but I am sure I still missed a few things).
Heck, it's been hard getting back to reality after 7 fun days in the sun, even though the weather has been beautiful here in New England!

However with our At Home With White Show at the shop just one short month away I have been busy gathering and painting.
Would you like a little peek?
I thought so...



As you can see I still have more painting to do.
One piece I am on the fence about is my dress form. 
I took off the purplish fabric and now she looks like this...


After I dressed her up with some items headed for the show I thought I should leave her as is...


I liked the contrast and then she would be a blank canvas for someone else's vision.
What do you think?
(Are you reading this Michelle?)

Mary Ellen painted one of her dress forms and it looks wonderful.
Take a peek at her blog to see for yourself as well as seeing some more white show sneak peeks.

I still need to find a few more pieces for my outfits but am off to a good start with the beautiful scarf I won from Kate...

Thank you so much Kate ~ I love it!! 


I have a lot more to share, but you will have to wait until next week to see more!
I am sharing with Faded Charm for White Wednesday ~ thank you Kathleen for hosting!

Thank you all for stopping by ~ have a wonderful day!

It amazes me what all people are painting. I always think now why didn't I think of that. The children's blocks for one. I think your dress form is like Cinderella when she gets all dolled up. She looks pretty darn good.

Hi Sandi- Well, it does look like you are off to a good start...a real good start. I am loving all your whites. Gotta tell you, I would probably paint the dress form for my own use though. Love what you have done and it is fun to see you back. Glad you had a good time away~ xo Diana

Your white treasures are beautiful. Paint is magic!! Your dress form is gorgeous just the way she is.

Cindy said...

The white stuff is so pretty, I love white, it just doesn't fit in my house, it demands more color.
I love the dress form, I sure wish I could get to your show.
Have a lovely week.

Since you are getting ready for your show, it would be a little difficult to get back into blogging right now.
Don't stretch yourself too thin.
You have some nice things ready for your show. Can't wait to see what else you are planning to put out.
Have fun with everything, Sandi!
