I think I get just as many comments about my entry images as the blog post themselves...
This one is a favorite vintage card I bought from my go to source Etsy a while back.
I suppose it would be way too simple for modern times...maybe that is why I like it so much.
You are all welcome to craft with the images that open my post.

I like to clean them up and edit the words out to make them more generic for everyday use.
Back to blogging...
If you have not seen the old movie State Fair, stop now and go do it.
Let me clarify...the 1945 Rogers and Hammerstein's remake of State Fair.
You can thank me later for the gorgeous technicolor and farm beauty you are about to see.
It is about a family that goes to the Iowa State Fair.
The kind that you can watch with kids running around under foot and not have to worry about the bleeps.
It is a wonderful movie with great family values, brilliant colors, and the most gorgeous dresses.
Just like the one I found recently.
In search of a permanent dress for my mannequin,
it didn't take long to say yes to this dress.
Gingham, rick rack, and full skirt.
All hand made with the label of love intact.
I wonder if she was ever worn?
There isn't a stain to be seen.
These are the dresses that flattered every figure and called for sandals.
Although this dress does evoke keen memories of that great movie,
none of the names in the movie are sweet enough to tempt me to name the dress for them.
Grace seems far more apropos.
What? You don't think Grace Kelly ever made award winning pie?
