Fun With a Dress Form & a Boy With His Kitty!

A little over a week ago, I mentioned to my mom how much I would love to have a dress form.  Two days later, she showed up on my front porch with this lovely lady!  You'll never guess where she found her!  HomeGoods!  I had her all dressed up and in my space at the store last week but her fancy frocks have sold and since I didn't have any other clothing to sell, I thought I would enjoy her at home for a bit! 
Here she is in my bedroom, wearing a lacy vest and my grandmother's knit shawl, circa 1950. 
 I've dressed her especially for White Wednesday at Faded Charm
Of course she needed some bling too!  Pearls, pearls and more pearls!  Do I wear them all?  Not all at one time, but I love displaying them together and when I want to wear a pearl necklace, it's fun to have a variety of lengths and styles to choose from!  Some were special heirlooms and gifts, others were picked up at estate sales and such. 
My mom said that the dress forms had just arrived in the store the day she was there and that they were all in shopping carts except for this one!  I am so happy to have her and will for sure have a ton of fun playing dress up with her!  Thank you, mom!
 Look who joined me in the bedroom for my little photo shoot today?  These two were so adorable.  I couldn't help but snap some pics of them too!
My husband and I are seriously jealous of the love and affection this cat gives our boys.  He will have nothing to do with either one of us!  It's the funniest thing.  Can't you just see the love here?  Pretty sweet, huh?
My little guys hug on this kitty, carry him around, build him forts out of cardboard boxes and cushions and tease him with ribbon and toys.  He follows them around like a puppy.  He almost never tires of their attention.  If my husband or I try to pick him up or pet him, he bites us!  I am not exaggerating!  I can't explain it and I don't understand it, but he is who is and he loves who he loves.  He is one quirky but adorable kitty.  

Thank you so much for your sweet visit, dear friends! 
I hope you have a wonderful week!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
