I decided to add this photo not because I made the items, but because it is a different way of looking at and using items that we see and use everyday...frame a worn pair of baby shoes, use old fryolator baskets (I think these were from KFC!) to show off some shells...

Pattern or design used: My own design - Jackie Lantry of Bliss Farm Antiques

jacklynn4 writes: To "Pieces of the Past" The dress form you drooled over is from Paris. I found it on Ebay. Pricy, but worth it. I have found Wolf and bauman dress forms on my local craigslist. You have to "haunt" the list-meaning go on every day and check. I have gotten 2 this way. You never know. I also use several different descriptions (dress form, dress dummy, dressmakers dummy, mannequin.) If you stick to it, you'll get one for sure. Let me know when you do...happy treasure hunting:) It is part of the fun of it-anyone can go out and pay top dollar and find one, it's so much better to find one AND get a great deal.

Thanks for sharing.
