While at Woodfield

While I was waiting for Legoland to open, I went to Woodfield Mall. I was impressed by two really wonderful window displays! Both had paper dress, one was made out of a stiff paper and one was made out of wedding invitations.

The one at Anthropologie, was made from a stiff paper. What caught my eye, was the window that had an old Singer treadle sewing machine in the window. As I went farther I saw this one!!!

It blew me away!!!

Here is a close up of the dress. Notice how the marking are drawn on the paper.

I asked at Papyrus if I could post it to my blog. Which got the manger, of the store taking, she said every dress was different as they were free to design their own wedding dress.

I thought they did a really nice job, on the front and the back!


On Sunday June 5, I finally set up the Rust-Tex Studio!!!

I usually get it set up shortly after tax day but with the death of my mom and my youngest graduating from college it took me a bit longer this year.

The above photo shows the deck before I started. The below shows how it looked after I was done. I started around noon and ended around 3. Then I puttered around for another hour.

I was so hungry we had an early dinner. It was brats, because we do live in WI and that is a traditional German food. Brats is pronounced like it rhymes with cats.
