On The Fence? Get Dressed!

Have you been "on the fence" about doing a project? I hope my recently Craft Room post and projects have inspired you to create something, anything. I know it's hard to get those fingers working (much less the brain) in this weather. (But when you think about it--what else can you do in this weather?) Now that the holidays are over, it's time to get down to the business of keeping yourself happy by getting back into your crafting supplies and making something!

Here's something I just finished:

Inspired by the art of Leigh Pennebaker, I made it out of some wire fencing I got at Room With A Past. It almost came into shape by itself! I was amazed to watch my hands put it all together. It reminds me of my wedding dress! It stands about 4 feet tall. I think it would be great in a garden, or as a display for items that could be clipped on it with clothespins, etc.

It's for sale in my spot at the shop this month. By the way, we have tons of Valentine stuff at this month's opening, which starts TONIGHT! But we won't be open again until after Feb. 14th, so get off the fence, and get it now!!!


  1. Wish I could come down this weekend. Can't come this month. Just won't work. Hope you have a lucrative sale.

    I LOVE the dress form made out of fencing. That's just ingenious. This would look great in your backyard garden with ivy growing on it.., like a topiary. What do you think?

  2. Really cute, and your pink house is adorable.
