A new addition to my "new" home is a dress form - something I have wanted ever since I found this beautiful beaded lace dress at a local antique mall. The dress is off white and lined -- the print fabric on the form shows through slightly, but, not nearly as much in real life as it does in the photo. I rummaged through my costume jewelry and found several strands of pearls, all of which I have draped around the neck. The two longest strands were made by your Dad's paternal grandmother Lottie, sometime in the late 60's or early 70's. Whatever the latest craft fad was, we could always expect her to be trying her hand at it. Also, around the neck of the form, I have placed the small "band hat" I wore on my wedding day. The dress I wore that day was a simple white street dress, given away years ago, so, I like to call this beauty "my wedding dress" !!
