Glue Gun Creation

    Here is a little project I made in two hours the other day. I am working on a special store display.



I used a dress form, glue gun, safety pins and staples.

I finished with a short sash and vintage broach

I used this stitched lace from India

Hand made cloth flower shoulder corsage


I covered the top of the dress form with faux pearl

Oh My Gosh Richard...
Fabulous, absolutely fabulous. I love, LOVE the sash made of flowers, that is SO divine, and then you added those pearls. Man did that ever make her elegant. I love her little self.

Your sash is beautiful as well. Your mind must be working all the time, non stop. I wish I could peak in there for just a little inspiration.

Have a glorious Wednesday sweet friend. Many country hugs, Sherry

Oh, how pretty! So besides being a home decorator you are also a fashion designer! Go Richard!

Sweet Old Vintage said...

I need to take inspiration from you and start creating again... I am sorry about you leak... most likely costly, as most things are.... We are still awaiting what we are going to have to do...it has turned extremely hot this afternoon and I never like this cause someone always gets very bad storms when this happens... Counting my blessings... The other stuff will pass soon....

Hello Richard,
All up to date now. That corner wicker chair is sweet indeed. How I wish I could show up for Diva Day, what a great idea and your table was spectacular. Love your window display! As usual, I enjoy each and every of your posts.

Richard,
I think you have to name her. She is very beautiful and a lady should always wear her pearls.

Yes! A name! She is gorgeous! Reminds me of Queen Elizabeth in some of her glam 1950's state gowns. Very regal!
