Kane County: Diane's Dress Form

This tricked-out dress form in our neighbor Diane's booth at Kane County was sooo cute, I just wanted to bite it. I'm not sure why cute things make me want to taste them, but come on! Isn't it adorable? Diane added a hoop skirt embellished with silk leaves to her peeled form, along with a lovely vintage corsage. This dress form is definitely the belle of the Harvest Ball.

Over in our booth, that great dresser from the Allegan post was the first large piece of furniture to sell, followed by a beautiful round, Queen Anne dining table. Small furniture and decor accounted for most of the sales Saturday, while big furniture, containers and industrial dominated Sunday sales.
We had a great time celebrating Joe's birthday, both during the show and at a party Saturday evening hosted by the Boyds. Lynda's Applesauce Spice Cake was to die for. Definitely bite-worthy! We always enjoy see our regular Kane customers and show neighbors, plus were really excited to see some customers that we don't get to shop with as often. Dan and CJ were a great addition to our show neighborhood -- their booth looked terrific. Come and see them -- as well as us! -- at next weekend's Grayslake. xo

I routinely want to "eat" non-edible, yummy things. That dress form is fab!
