Patriotic Rosie

 Hello Again! Have you missed me?  I haven't had my own post since we moved and it's already June!  I'm feeling a bit neglected (so what else is new?), so let's shop for a new outfit....  
I've decided to celebrate the summer holidays with an outfit in red, white, and blue but trying to borrow Ann's denim dress was met with a stern, "No!"  Honestly, sometimes I just don't know how she expects me to put together an outfit....
So, I started with a basic white top and skirt. 
Borrrrring... 
until I added a red belt!
The denim jacket was added to give my outfit the 'blue'.  Ann didn't complain too much about the jacket.  My guess is, if she wants to wear it, she'll just take it off of me and head out the door.  
Have I mentioned I get no respect around here.....??
I wanted to take the flying pig pin off, but that subject was NOT up for discussion...
Again, NO respect! (Insert heavy sigh)
I DID manage to wrangle this necklace, though!
And, can we talk about the hat?  I've worn it before and it is a favorite!
The last piece needed to top-off this outfit was a flag and guess what can't be found?  Some nonsense about moving and things packed away.  I know there has to be at least one around here....I'll just keep looking.

In the meantime, I'm ready for Flag Day (well, without the flag) and Independence Day.  
I also think this hat also qualifies me for a day at the track.  I'm sure I'll win the Hat Contest!
What do you think?

P.S.  There's a rumor that another dress form has been added to the family.  I haven't seen her, but I'm keeping my ears open.
I'm not sure how I feel about this possible new addition......

A quick note from Ann:  
Yes, there is a new dress form and I haven't told Rosie yet.  I found her last weekend at a yard sale - very dirty and damaged.  There are parts missing and something tells me a few mice were the culprits.  I've got my work cut out for me, but I'll be sharing my progress in upcoming posts.

  4. Rose looks darling! I bought a mini dress form years ago with the intention to style it for a tabletop sometime. I of course never did, and happen to see it in a garage cabinet recently. You are reminding me that I need to style it or gift it. It's a fun idea!

  10. Rosie that pig brooch is amazing, you need to embrace it's quirkiness and just go with it! You are looking good misses, You would have fitted right in with the Jubilee celebrations in the UK a few weeks ago too!
