Dress Form Linky Party, Yep, I am going to take the leap

I am going to make the leap into 
"Big girl" blogging!
I'm going to have a one time Dress Form Linky Party 
February 7-13th!

 I wanted to give you some time to get the girls (Dress Forms) ready for the party.  Old, new, homemade, altered, big, small......All forms are welcome.

Link up as many dress form posts as you like, old posts, new posts..No sense reinventing the wheel if you already have a dress form post

I even followed Debbiedoo's tutorial and made myself a blog button, oh ya, I'm getting real fancy now!
The back ground graphic I got free at "Free Pretty Things for You" and the dress form was from "Graphics Fairy"


I'm a little nervous, I have never done a linky Party
 (I have no idea how, but I'll figure it out LOL)

My biggest fear is no one will show up and then I will be the big


Now, I know some of you don't have dress forms and wouldn't be caught dead with one in your house, but for those of you that do, I would be eternally grateful if you would participate and save me from

The Blogger Hall of Shame!!

If you think your readers might enjoy participating, you can grab my new Fancy button for your side bar

And don't worry, I will hound remind you of the party in my posts

So, what do you say, are you in???  

Happy Creating

Ooooo this is going to be awesome!!! I can't wait to see all those dress forms!!!I don't own a full size dress form(not that I wouldn't LOVE one!) but I just started sewing some mini dress forms that are going to be about 15" and I am going to dress them up with all sorts of embellishments so if those count then I'm in! :)

WhyCuzICan said...

Hi Carol,
I don't have true dress forms but make dress form pin cushions/jewelry hangers. Does that count?

WISH I had a dress form. Saving up for one (thanks to your tuts, I know where to get them cheap!

Smiles, Suzanne

WhyCuzICan said...

Laurie Brown said...

I have a dream of someday having a dress form in my house- either functional to use for sewing or to dress up in pretties! (I'd probably change her clothing/embellishments with the seasons, knowing me). Maybe this year one will show up at a yard sale.

I hope your linky party is a smashing success!

hopeandjoyhome said...

I have one I just finished and a couple more lurkers in my house waiting for me to do something with them! This will be fun! Julia

~Sheri~ said...

Dont blog much anymore......more of a lurker lately but this is a great way to jump in again :)

Anonymous said...

Wish I had a dress form! I have been searching... no luck yet.. soon I hope!

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

I have one, but it s a newer one made of bright royal blue fabric. Yuk. Would this still work, without me having to completely recover this thing? It doesn't look vintagey at all unfortunately.

Judy said...

A friend of mine found your blog. She lives in FL and plans to visit your booth soon. She loves your blog and now, so do I! I will join your dress form party. I have 4 dress forms right now (just sold the 5th one yesterday). One is in my bedroom and the other three are in the garage awaiting a trip to my antique booth. Anyway, I decorate and redecorate them all the time. This party is so for me! Can't wait to link up on February 4th!! See you then!

Judy said...

Oops! I mean the 7th of February! See you then!

Betty Sneeringer said...

I sure wish I hadn't given mine away when I moved to this small house. I didn't know anyone else liked them until I started my blog.

Heather said...

Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


sissie said...

Count me in Carol. This sounds like lots of fun.


Cheryl said...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

No one will turn up!??? Are you kidding me?? (that's the second time I have said that today :) I think this party is going to be huge Carol. Great idea!!!

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

LOL you KNOW it will be HUGE and I will be there !

Denise said...

You're a hoot, Carol. I look forward to figuring out how to get mine uploaded to yours! Thank goodness you gave us a few days to prepare ourselves. Hope all is well. Denise

Debbie said...

Your "loser picture" and blogger hall of shame comment made me laugh right out loud! Yes... that's exactly why I don't do things like that. I'm a big fat hairy chicken.

Your party will be great. I just know it. That's because you are as far from the big "L" as you can get.

But... I don't have a dress form.
I love them, though, so we'll see.
I will, however, put you right up on the side board of my blog for advertising.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Thanks so much for linking. I have marked my calendar!
Can't wait!

Nook & Cranny said...

Please count me in, would love to attend the party.

Lynn said...

Just found your blog, Carol, and I'm your newest follower. I have a dress form and I'd love to join the party. I'm off to paste you (most excellent!) button on Cottage and Creek.
