Today is the the day that we ‘Spring Forward’ for Daylight Savings Time here in UT. Moving our clocks ahead one hour. It always takes a bit of getting use to the first few days, but I love the extra hour of daylight. Especially when it comes time to working in the garden.
Not only is it time for my clocks to change, but my dress form, Penelope was wanting a new look.
I have been so busy with company the last few days. Two of my sisters and a couple friends have been here crafting and sewing. Hubby was away fly fishing so us gals had a ‘girls gone wild’ weekend. What fun we had!
After they left I wandered into my sewing room and Penlope gave me that look. You know the one. It’s the “come on, are you going to make me a new dress?” look. After all, she knew that there was a dress form Ball going on at the Polka Dot Closet
Here’s what she looked like at last years event.
This year she wanted a new gown. She still loved her tuelle skirt and doily apron but she yearned for something with a little more pizazz!
Here’s what the two of us came up with. Fabric scraps and Mod Podge and Voila!
Jewelry from the dress up closet gave her some sparkle.
She has fantasized about going to Paris ever since she flew over it on her broom when she was Hilde. If you’d like to see Hilde go here. Hilde's Gone Soft
Look at that profile. . .Va-Va-Va-Voom!
Now here’s the kicker. She thinks that the name Penelope sounds too, (well, not fancy enough) for Paris. So she’s changed it again. She is now known as Venice. I suggested Victoria or Veronica, but NO she wanted Venice. Something about if she ever gets there it will be like Italy going to France. She insisted I give her a monogram along with a Paris tag.
She loves her letter V! Although it stands for Venice. She also likes vivacious, victorious, and like I say, Va-Va-Va-Voom!
Burlap and tissue paper roses adorn pink dotty ribbon.
Look at her sweet crown. Fit for a Queen!
Penelope, Venice is loving her new gown and having sweet dreams of France!
I’ve got to practice calling her by her new name.
If you have a dress form we will be looking for her at the Ball!
