Details, Details....

It's all in the details!

My FIRST, ever {!} giveaway! Finally - the details! Check out the goodies!
If you haven't left a comment here or become a follower {and don't forget to tell me, HERE...!}
I sure hope you will! I'm new to all of this giveaway business,
but I'll run a random generator for all of the comments....
and post a winner on Friday! {February 11th}

Whewhoooooo! {THAT'S fun!}

And speaking of FUN! Here's some VERY cool highlights from my
wonderful trip to CHA last week! You've probably already heard about
some of the INCREDIBLE booth displays, but friends... the paper artistry...{!}
It still makes me a little weepy! These dress forms were positively THE most exquisite
use of paper I HAVE EVER SEEN! I have assembled a few of my very favorites,
where my photography skills didn't let me down....{!} If you didn't have the pleasure
of attending, I hope you will enjoy some shots from the SHOW! No need to call your tailor -
I'm sure you'll see why ONE SIZE FITS ALLLLLLLLLLLLL!

This runway scene, put on by DCWV, was the stuff REAL runways must be made of!

To gaze upon these stunning creations in real life made me feel like a lucky,
front row attendee at the hottest show in town.

NOT only is my tail wagging at the dynamic use of paper, but I'm looking
at my DCWV stacks in a whole, new light!
These fine folks took paper crafting
OVER the top!

I'm planning to see these again, AT A FINE MUSEUM!

Seriously! GOT FLAPPER?

My daughter's Easter Dress! {Wasn't she SO generous to share it for the show!}

I think we'd consider this one for her sweet 16...
{We'll be fielding offers for the next six or seven years - but it's good to be prepared!}

Paper flowers - a WHOLE different post - SERIOUSLY!

I won't even let the little girl SEE this one!
{Beware - the splendid use of PURPLE!}

So glad we're not HERE yet, but for REAL teenage girls -
Once BITTEN... {Oh, dear!}

Dress form, dress form, dress form -

the NEW canvas....


Not just for dresses!

Some are for ANGELS!


I'm CERTAIN I didn't come close to capturing them all,
but in case you haven't had a chance to see some of the show's highlights,
I sure hope you'll enjoy these EXQUISITE pieces!

Thank you, SO much, for stopping by!
I'll be back soon with more treasures from my journey!
