This is 'Colleen', she's a bonnie little lass, part of my Angelic Inspirations. Colleen is 70ish, but looks great for her age. After a little nip and tuck of her origianl dress, I added the pinafore overlay of a 1950's irish linen and lace hankie.
I love the satin rose and Mother script. The color matched to original blue gingham and satin skirt.
I then gave her a new 'do' and added the hairband....1960's blue gingham with coordinating rickrack. I was soooo happy the color lot matched the 40's. I added a little butterfly applique for whimsy
Her 'wings' are a 1940's hand-tatted doily gathered by more 60's rickrack.
Now 'Rose' is a bit olser that 'Colleen'
HERE......she was a model back then paired with a boy on an advertising stand. She is all original.
Her hand-crocheted dress is original and only needed a little refit. She holds a garland created by using 1940's hand-tatted trim with new ribbon roses.
Her under skirt is a 1950-60 linen rose motif linen hankie...with it's original sticker.
'Wings' are a 1940-50 hand-tatted doily in a glorious red that matched the dress. Her 'hairpeice' coordinates with the garland she holds.
Both of these Angelic Inspirations are ooak and would be a perfect Mother's Day rememberance gift.
Mom's always need to carry a lot of stuff. Be it her craft project of the moment, books, shopping items, or the myriad of doodads she has to carry for the family while out..I have a great idea......................................
Does your Mom love roses? I have created a very 'rosy' gift set just for her..........................................
This is a 1940's rose tablecloth in perfect condition.I then found a 1940's apron that I redid and added pocket appliques created of matching roses taken from another vintage tablecloth and vintage rickrack.
To complete the set I located 4 1940's glasses in the rose motif.
Wouldn't this make a great tablesetting for Mom as a surprise?
