There's a New Girl in Town

Yes, there is a new girl in town.......or should I say at my house ;) I'm a single mom, living with sons, all of them 300% boy!! It gets a little much with all the testosterone running rampant at my house! Even the cat is a male! I have, however, managed to carve out some "girly" space in my house that is just for me! can imagine how happy I was to find this sweet gal......who was willing to brave the male.ness at my house and come home with me.
I didn't even have to pay her that much to agree to come home with me, considering her previous home was at a warehouse. She's not a young gal, she's been around for a little while. I wouldn't call her antique....she's like me....vintage.
The best part..... she loves all the things I love.....She was already looking through my stash of lace, old linens, vintage aprons.....She didn't have much when I met could say she was in her birthday suit!

Here she new roomie.......

I haven't decided which room will be her's, but I'll be sure to share when she has settled in ;)

Until later,
Toni ♥


  1. Well, how cool is that? She looks like she's in great shape, too.

    I've wanted one of these forever.

  2. She looks like a perfect roomie for you. Can't wait to see how she dresses herself up.

  3. Oh, you got me! I kept thinking, is it a puppy, a kitty? A roommate... no... ummm - a manniquin!!!! Too cute!

  4. Hi Toni,
    Love the new find....I seriously thought it was going to be a cat also.
    Yes that is a covered bridge. I apologize for the silly picture and no story with it. I was uploading pictures for my next post and somehow I published only one of them. I have the full story up now and more pics.
    Thanks for stopping by,

  8. I love the dress form. I had one that I sold not too long ago and now regret not keeping it for myself. She'll look so good all decked out:)

  9. Hi Toni~
    YOU won the necklace giveaway on the Junk Bonanza blog! Please email me at with your address so we can send you the necklace!

  10. Hi Toni-
    What a great find! I have one similiar that is just the body portion and not on a stand. As a jewlery designer I had planned to use her to display jewelry, which didn't work as the jewelry would get stuck between the wire holes. Thus, last week I wove ripped material through her holes and now she's perfect for my business use. :) I plan to do a tutorial on my site in the future about her, so check back and see it when I get it up.
    Enjoy your new girlie roommate. ;)
    P.S. Since you're the only lady of the house, you still are the queen. So fitting that you won the give away I donated to Junk Bonanza Blog.

  11. She is quite a beauty! Looks like she doesn't eat much either! Toni, you are going to have fun having her around the house! What is her name?
