Something I've Wanted To Do

First of all, I'd like to say "thank you" to Susan of betweennapsontheporch for giving me some help recently. What a sweetheart!

Ever since earlier this year when Natasha had a "refurbishing" party for a piece of clothing I've wanted to do something. I didn't participate then because of time
doesn't it always seem to get away from us? So recently I decided to commit to myself to do a bit of something to a vintage prom dress that I bought from Bertie. It isn't very much but it does kind of pizzazz the dress up a bit and it makes my heart feel good plus I just love looking at it here in my office.

A ribbon rose I made many years ago and took off a lamp shade that I refurbished a few years ago. Then some organdy ribbon tied at the shoulders.

Plus a pink ribbon at the waist line to add even more color. Then some white posies at the waist line also. It looks a lot different than it did when it was all white.

Hmmmm, I wonder what this will turn out to be?!?! You'll find out in a few days probably.


  1. What a beautiful dress, that would make me smile every time I looked at it.

  2. Beautiful! You better not forget to show us what you decide!

  3. Hello Connie, I just commented on your previous post and I must tell you the prom dress looks so pretty all refurbished. My prom dress is all white with a touch of blue. It is over 50 years old now and I am so glad I kept it. I should find a good time to post it one day. I also have my wedding dress. We keep things in this family. Not always the best thing because what will happen to all this stuff when we are gone? LOL.

    Have a happy day Connie.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. Golly, that looks great! That dress was always one of my favorites! So glad you have the vision to make it even more beautiful!

  5. Connie that dress is adorable. It definitely has me smiling today. I'd be smiling too if I got to look at that everyday. I love all your sweet touches to it!

  6. Hi Connieness! Oh, what a sweet frilly dress! I love the pink touches you've added to it! It's darling! Chloe Dawn does try to scary sometimes! Little silly.
    Oh, Lindsay would love for you to come for a visit!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. Well I don't think I've ever seen anything any sweeter. Delicious is the word.

  9. I love what you did with the dress, Connie! It reminds me of Disney's Cinderella, when the birds add ribbons and flowers to the dress - it has that romantic look to it!

    Thanks so much for coming by! I agree with you about grammar - I'm a stickler, too. I'm also a stickler about spelling and wonder why more people don't use spell check. Ah well.

    I always love seeing your creativity and reading your wonderful posts!


  10. Looks lovely! I think a tea party next summer in the rose garden gazebo is in order. I'll bring the cucumber finger sandwiches.


  11. It's already so pretty. I can't wait to see what you do with it!! : )
