Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.
First I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments last week about my son. Bless you all, you are so sweet! We have talked to him several times this week. Just can't grasp that he is so many miles away.
Today for my pinkness I have this pretty little Ribbon Lady that I made this week. I have admired these in antique stores for years and if in good conditon they are very pricey.
These Ribbon Ladies were first made in the 1920's and 30's with paper dolls, ribbons, laces and millinery flowers.
She apprared again in the early 50's and has been sleeping ever since.
I found a pattern book to make them several years ago and finally made one.
This Ribbon Lady I named Annie and she is a 1920's era.
She was so much fun to make and like the ones made years ago she is on black velvet.
She is not going to stay in this frame, I'm going to buy a shadow box or antique beveled glass frame to put her in.
