Leaving On A Jet Plane, Shop Talk

It's tough to get much done lately in terms of working in my studio with all the traveling that I have been doing, not to mention the girly girls coming and going! Today I did manage to finish another of my Shabbyfufu Dress Forms for the website that I hope to list later on today. I wish that I had been keep tally on how many of these I have made over the years (um, Original creation:-), as they are mostly now gone and living in homes all over the place! I know that it's been over 100, and each has their own unique personality and I think as with most projects, they are prettier as techniques are practiced and perfected. Speaking of techniques....something exciting that I can't share just yet, but you will be reading in a few weeks from what I have been told:-). she is, just needing a name.

I am off tomorrow to Atlanta for the big gift show at the Merchandise Mart, and will be there through the weekend. I love Atlanta.... when I first finished college I lived there and taught art for awhile before taking off for other pastures.

If any of you are me and hopefully we can meet up. I don't know if I can get very many "legal" photos, but I will try and sneak some in.....and let you in on the trends that I spot for the seasons ahead. It's a huge show, the largest in the U.S. I I will have my running shoes on and see what I can see!

Talk soon~


  1. That is the most beautiful dress form!! I want it! :)

    I hope you have a wonderful and very safe trip! Will miss you when you are gone!


  2. Oh it's gorgeous! She looks quite like a Serendipity or Shabby Susannah to me...Maybe a Miss Pity-Pat from Gone with the Wind. I know Janet, It's 5 in the morning here, I need some Coffee before I start thinking of, well, anything.. heehee :)

    I hope you have a fabulous time at Market and I do hope you sneak a few pics in - that's the best part for us bloggers! Hugs sweets & be safe - xoxo Sher
