Meet Betsy....

I've been on a hunt for a mannequin to display all my jewelry wares for a long time. My homemade one was falling apart and just wasn't working for me anymore. I've had my eyes especially on vintage ones. I  just love the beauty and charm of them even if to just display in the home. Last week I did find a beauty, it had the wire skirt a beige bodice and a dark green chest with an iron knob at the top. She was beautiful! I just wasn't sure if my jewelry would show up in photos because of the green color. Then I found this one. It's brand new and has a wooden leg. It's very plain except for the French print at the bottom. I bought a pretty vintage millinery flower and wide antique lace to dress her up when she needs it. I love the nuetral effect it has on the jewelry! I take my photos always outside to get the most light. Last night I left her on the porch and my daughter let me know it was starting to rain...so I quickly brought her in because I didn't want Betsy to be wetsy! Ha! Anyways, I just want to indroduce her to you because you will be seeing a lot of her in my jewelry photos!
 Thanks for stopping by today!
