Here comes the bride...........


Isn't it funny how going to a beautiful wedding makes you want to do it all over again?
The Gowns, flowers and romance of it all.
Its how being around a newborn..... smelling the Johnsons baby lotion..... looking at their little fingers and holding them so close reminds you of the beautiful precious moments when yours were little.
It Just makes you want to have another baby!!!!!!
( that screaming you hear right now is my mother jumping up and down with joy in California!)

Being around my little niece has certainly put the bug in me!!!!!
(that thump you just heard is the sound of my husband fainting on the floor)

But in this post I don't have any announcements to make!
Sadly my baby days are over......
Ill just count my blessings for my 2 handsome boys and wait for grandchildren.
(Which by the way Brandon if your reading this I can wait a bit longer for!!!!!)

So since I cant have anymore babies and I'm not getting married again.......
I have found the love of my life.....
I have to find other ways to capture the moments that those blessed events bring.
Beginning with indulging my little niece that was just born with the fru fruiest things I can find.......... and I can create and design these beautiful dress forms......dolling them up to the nines!!
(whatever does that mean???)


Ive done many of these in different sizes and styles but this one was a custom order for a customer. She requested a bride.
I added vintage pearls to the bottom of the dress for added detail and pizazz!!
I really wanted to keep her!!!!
as I do with most of my designs, I put my heart and soul into all my projects......
I don't skimp or short cut.....
I use the most beautiful vintage materials and make my things as if they were for me and staying in my home.
( which is why I'm never going to become a millionaire in this business and my husband should keep his day job! hee hee)
I really want my customers to get something that is really special and truly be an heirloom piece for their family.




As I said It is hard to let them go because my work takes on a little part of me....

but when I get all your beautiful emails telling me how much you love what Ive designed for you then I'm happy I did.

I know that the little part of me is in a good home and well loved...... and I suppose that's why any of us doing what we do, we just want to share what we love!!

smiles,

Sandy

Sandy! That is gorgeous! I can understand why you want to keep it! You are so talented!

Oh my goodness, Sandy, that is scrumptious!! Almost makes me want to go through it again, but alas, I'm keeping my Love Bunny for another 47 years, sweet cupcake!!! Thanks for visiting and the divine comments, lovey!!
Smoochies,

Well, to answer your question about "dressing to the nine"; it means doing it very well. A theory has to do with a British regiment the 99th and they were somewhat known for their sartorial excellence, my love lulu! Hence, dressing to the nines!!
Smoochies,

Sandy,
It is so so beautiful. Who wouldn't love it. Congrats on Romantic Country mag. I love that publication. Your frames are gorgeous and will fit right in. I know how you feel about the baby thing. When you do have a grand baby you will be the perfect grammy.
