Lady nurse found a great blog and web site of Karla Nathan's, Karlascottage.typepad.com. She found her tutorial on making these darling little dress forms. So, the LN and the Innkeeper were off and running with the plans to make these forms. LN went to Atchison Ks to the B&B (Tuck-U-Inn at Glick Mansion). I wonder why I never get to go to the Inn? Well, I got to go one time. Could it be my manners or all the dog hair or my high energy level that can be a little hard on antiques?
The two friends spent a day going to thrift stores and interesting junk stores gathering "junk" for their project.

|The Awesome results. They named the one on the left, Julia. Yes, after Julia Childs. I don't know her but I'm sure I would have loved her because she cooks. And everyone knows I'd do anything for a treat!|
