Dress Form Giveaway!!!

Drawing closed
I'm so excited to giveaway a dress form to one lucky follower to transform anyway you like!


 When I first posted this dress form covered with sheet music last May, I wrote in the post "Just so you know, Barr Display (the company that sells the dress forms) has no idea I exist"


Fast forward 7 months, they now know I exist! I received thousands of hits on that post,and the company that sells them "Barr Display" started receiving orders.
Julia their sweet Marketing Manager said We'd love to give YOU one to transform (The Lace One) and 
Give a dress form away To a follower to transform anyway they choose!!



If you don't win, you can purchase this dress form for only $20.95
This is two parts, the form and the base.
  The form can be used alone and has a swivel hanger.
The form is $8.98 
The base is $12.00
The form and base are #8020 and come in black and white. Put #8020 into the search box
The shipping is actual cost
Barr Display is the store. 

Barr Display also carrys everything you need for store displays





This Giveaway is closed


Good Luck!

Happy Creating!

I did a blog post on the dress forms on Farmgirl Musings...www.bbonnieblue.blogspot.com
on Sept. 8, 2011.

I had to creat a new blog because of tech difficulties but I think you can still view it - I can't!!! (I have to comment Anon. but include my blog addresses)

I'm a true believer and love how creative you can be in decorating them!
