Hi Everyone! I want to introduce my new assistant…..well actually I don’t have a name for her yet! But I’ll pick a good one. If you have some good ideas let me know!
I have been wanting to display my Bibs a bit better at the craft shows I attend, so I went to Etsy to find the perfect thing. I looked at mannequins first but they were expensive and I wanted something different, something that would draw people into my booth. Then I thought, how about a doll? Good Idea Gayle! I ended up finding this beautiful doll at MadGeniusVintage. Her face caught my attention with those big eyes and luscious red lips! I knew she would be perfect. It was obvious she had been played with and loved alot, because once I got her home, I saw that her luscious red lips had been painted on by some sweet five year old! But honestly, it made me love her even more!
As you can see she did a great job of modeling my “Blues Brothers” bib! I took her with me to the Lafayette High School Craft show where she did such a great job modeling that several people asked to buy her!
She is pictured here wearing her vintage Christmas dress with red and white booties and headband bought at my favorite Savers here in St. Louis. For those of you not from STL, Savers is similar to Goodwill. I plan on having her wear a different outfit at every show! Keep checking back, I’ll post pictures of her and her outfits!
