My Dress Form Finds A Home...


Not long ago I posted about a gaudy curbside mannequin find that I re-did!  If you missed the tale of her golden past, be sure and visit that POST .  She has found a home in my studio!  I have been slowly working on my space, and while most of it still resembles an episode of Hoarders...I'll give you a little peek of an area I've finished!  I bought this great rustic metal cubby at the last Junk Bonanza.  Next Junk Bonanza, it will be part of our display, but the rest of the year, it is part of my studio space! 


I have a vintage metal medical chart as a display for photos, etc...



some of my artwork is displayed on the wall...



and on the shelf top...


the cubbies are full of goodies...







I think my lady is right at home here, don't you?


One of my goals this year is to finish this work-in-progress, and to be able to create and work here! 

I am joining Carol at The Polka Dot Closet for her Dress Form Linky Party

Until next time...

  12. Hi Linda,

    This is my first visit to your blog, and I just love it! Your cubbies are wonderful. So much better than plastic tubs and such that so many people get stuck with. Those clipboards are very inspiring too! I think we have a lot in common....

  29. Your find has come a long way! The dress form is lovely and shares a space with a very interesting cubby! I also especially liked the "crusty" clipboard! Think I need to leave one of mine outdoors for a while! LOL!! Thanks for sharing!

  31. I'd be jealous
    that you have a
    studio/room of
    your own EXCEPT
    that you are too
    sweet to be jealous
    of! Love how you
    styled that cubby.
    You've got such a
    gift : )

  34. I am in love with your studio!!! It is fabulous! Love the clipboard art AND your cubbies!

    The mannequin came out cool! My husband rescued two bustforms from a store reno that were headed for the dumpster. I bought some vintage dress patterns at a flea market recently and plan on decoupaging one with them. Haven't decided on the other one yet.
