What's New??

What's new, you ask?? Well, this is not new, just a new idea to me. I'm so overwhelmed with "stuff" I can hardly, I've decided to let go of some of my vintage wedding gowns. These are all new, clean and never worn, stored in garment bags in a closet in my smoke free home. They just don't make them like they used to! These will all have wonderful hand beading, tons of appliques and lace in abundance. I just love looking at them and I will keep my favorites, but I have wayyyy tooo many and need to share their beauty.

Now, I know many of you still have your lovely gown stored away somewhere. But! What about that dress form or mannequin? What is she going to wear? What would you hang on that favorite decorated hanger (hopefully, purchased from Aunt May's Cottage)?

Here it is!! My goal is to list three a week in at the cottage. I will have no more than a dozen on there at a time. Check them out! You may find one that is just what you NEED for your lovely home. Psssttt....they are wearable, too.

Oh, Bertie, those are outstanding and I cannot believe that you are selling them!! I do understand, chickee, about getting rid of some stuff. I think it's time for me to do it also.

I did not know Bertie that you were friends with Mrs. Invisible Man! She must be a special friend to model those beautiful gowns for you! I met her once and we chatted for a while but she's not really a person of much substance, you know what I mean?

LOVE that your are almost completely healed up now and can tackle this gownsizing, er, I mean downsizing project!

Love, your goofy friend!

Bertie...welcome back! We have missed you and are so glad you are with us again! YEAH!!!

Those 2 dresses are glorious...they look like they may be from the 80's? Sure wish I could take them on..but you know I don't need more..but less. So like you I am purging! It's a spring thing dontcha think?

Have a blessed Easter!

Hi Bertie,

Take care & you have a blessed Easter too.
