As a kid I used to love playing dress-up. I remember my childhood friend had the best costumes- dresses and purses, heels and jewelry. We would dress-up and play make believe.
Pretending we were adults with our 'cheque books' and play money in our wallets. Doing all sorts of tasks we believed were adult related; cooking and buying groceries..filling up our bikes with 'gasoline' at the gas station. Having a road course in the driveway and down the street.. Thoroughly enjoying being a kid.
That neighbourhood held all sorts of businesses. From our travel business to our fashion shop, the post office and the classroom; our imaginations ran wild with only a few objects to play along with. How being a kid has changed.
By far we loved playing dress-up and having tea parties; fake and real ones on occasion. So when I saw the challenge this week over at The City Crafter Challenge Blog I knew I had to enter. I used my free hand, drawn dress form and dolled it up with some fab new-to-me old trim my aunt gave to me, some pearls-always have to add pearls, and see that little cameo poking out there? It's one of the ones I was talking about in this post here. Actually, I must confess my guy made these type..he has more patience than me..these are made from a fab mold I got my mom and oven bake clay. How I love these little beauties.A special stick pin from my sweet friend Stella peeks out from behind the bow.
I am off to enjoy the last night with my BIL's and the sweet sunshine.
Be back soon,
