This project is entirely the brainchild of my BFF Cori. She is a lover of all things vintage and adores dress forms. When unable to locate one which did not cost her an arm and a leg, she found a supplier to purchase a basic dress form from. Then she let her imagination run wild and created her own personal vintage dress form. She starts the process by applying old vintage sheet music to the form in such a way as to make it appear as though it is dressed. Then applied some vintage designs using transfer paper. I had recently given her some of my Grandmother's handmade doilies, which are well over 60 years old, and we were inspired to use them to adorn the neck and base of the form. When completed it looked absolutely gorgeous in her bedroom. Fittingly, we named her "Amelie". Cori sells these in her Etsy store here. The trucking news for the day is that Craig indeed did get an overnight run from the Fred Meyer DC in Puyallup, WA. He had three stops to complete, one in Ellensburg, and two in Spokane. By 7am he had successfully completed his run and was instructed to come into the company yard in Spokane to pick up 24 pallets for his next assignment. He had just enough time to pick them up and head to Pasco, WA to stage for his 11am appointment tomorrow in Kennewick to pick up frozen french fries.

I know he will appreciate the 24 hours of down time he will have before his appointment tomorrow to catch up on sleep and enjoy relaxing to recharge his body after that all night run he had. His dispatch has him delivering to four different stops as he heads south. We've already done the calculations and figure he will miss his requested home time date by a few days, but that will work out okay for us. It will give me a couple of days to restock the house and get it ready for our home time......not to mention putting in the house all the treasures I have found while junking with Cori!
