Dress Form on Display

Only 9 hours left to enter my $100 gift certificate GIVEAWAY Ends 4/12 at 12:00 a.m. Central time!

Hello all,  Hope you've all had a great day.  It' been beautiful here in Tulsa.  Shawn made homemade pancakes and homemade syrup for breakfast and later we all did some much needed yard work.

I've done a few posts about decorating my Master Bathroom ( Part 1 Block Glass Window, Part 2 Dressing Mirror/Vanity, Part 3 Small seating area) and thought I'd share just a little bit more that I did not show previously.

I have a little corner next to the shower stall.  (remember, I did not major remodeling and stuck with the paper that was here...would not have chosen this but it is pretty neutral)

I added a dress form

I put a pretty robe/gown I took with me to the hospital when I had one of our babies

then draped a pretty purple and gold shawl around the shoulders

Next I put some jewelry on...the pearl piece is an antique hairband (at least I think that's what it is!) that I inherited from my Grandma.  The other pieces are all lavender/purple.  My Mom gave me the prayer box necklace, and made the heart pendant below it, which she painted.

I chose three polychrome transferware plates in purple, green and brown, each with embossed borders and graduating in size to hang in one corner:

and a small wall vase filled with roses on the opposite side.

I hung a shower curtain across the shower door.  I used some pretty amber flecked shower curtain hooks and some left over fringe from me bedroom drapes to create a little valance, if you will.

And here is how it looks now:

Here are some pictures of the other areas of the MB

My 6 yr old daughter also loves it- she is super girly - ingenious idea with the dress form and sentimental robe and jewelry.

  4. The dress form is wonderful and I love how you dressed her all up! The prayer box necklace is beautiful and I love the plates and bottles in the window. Nancy, you are just so creative!

  13. Dear Nancy, I was enjoying all of the close up touches that you were showing us (my favorite color is purple/lavender) but to see that whole corner - wow, how pretty! What really got me was the row of pretty bottles in the window. You should have heard me gasp!
