Things in my House Thursday ~ the Little things that make me Happy

I absolutely love vintage dress forms...

Perhaps it is my fond memories of my mother sewing her own clothing...
fitting them perfectly to her dress form.
(I wish I knew what happened to her dress form.
It is no where to be found...)

On our recent trip to visit our daughters, we all stopped at several antique stores.
Most shop owners looked at us like 
"Good Luck, dress forms are impossible to find."

But, Monday morning...on our way home...
in a small town in southern Minnesota,
We found her...

This little gem, looking for a new home...

She has one here!

Take care,
~Natalie
