Cinderella Slippers ~ Enchanting












Cinderella Slippers

Altered pink pumps.
I bought these pink pumps at the thrift store for $2.
They are to big for me but I LOVED their shape and they were the perfect "pink".
I transformed them with bits of lace, vintage tulle, paper, glitter and a pair of old rhinestone shoe clips.
An enchanting pair of slippers fit for a Princess.

Have a wonderful week!

Vintage Romance









A Bit of Romance

May I have this dance......
I just purchased this lovely 1940's tulle dress.
I love the soft blue green tulle and shabby pink silk underlay.  Both faded over time.
It looks like a ballet dress so I paired it with a pair of altered art ballet slippers.
So romantic.
I can imagine them dancing the night away.  

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Pretty Boudoir ~ Spring Cleaning


  


 
 





 



Romantic Boudoir

April showers bring May flowers.
It has been raining consistently for days!  Any more rain and we are going to float away.
I shouldn't complain.......  with the severe drought we had last year....  we need all the rain we can get.  In a month or two.....  we will be complaining of the heat.
Since I'm cooped up in the house...........  thought I would do some much needed spring cleaning.
You know...........  dust "everything", remove and wash the drapes, clean under the bed and behind the dresser(s) and armoire.  And.....  in the process.....  I re-discover things I forget I have.
My bedroom(s) are filled to the brim with lovelies and it's nice to re-arrange and swap out displays.  
Thought I would share some of my pretties with you.

Have a wonderful weekend!

White Whispers - Vintage Tulle









 Vintage Tulle

Spring is in the air..........  and I'm in the mood for "white"!
I fell in love with this little girls... all white tulle dress... that I found at the local flea market.  
The dress was $25 and the pink millinery corsage was only $4.
I believe it to be from the 30's or 40's.
I thought it a wee bit "plain" so I added the pretty pink millinery corsage.
Now it reminds me of a fairy princess dress.  
I can imagine it with a pair of pink ballet slippers.
I find such perfection in old things.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
