weird and wonderful way of the world.

for months now, i have been lusting after a vintage dressmakers form.

specimens on ebay were always lost at the last minute.  divine forms found in stores were astronomically expensive.  

the universe was just not complying!

so, last week i put it out there.  blogged about it.  

and within minutes, a lovely friend sent me a message. 

she had one.

a vintage, 1950's one.

did i want it?

did i want it!

today the boys and i went to pick up 'bertha'..  she is simply gorgeous.




she looks perfectly at home in the hallway outside the office.

welcome to the family, bertha!

thank you helen, we shall take very good care of her.
