Miss Clara M. 
Named after my beloved Grandmas; Clara and the M. is for Miriam and my MaMa (Kathryn). 

She is a stately young thing that stands almost 5'5", much taller than I have seen other dress forms.  She is a thing of distressed beauty.

 I found her on our trip to NaDa Farms and just had to bring her home, after my dear friend Leah convinced me it would be a long ride home if I didn't get her!  What are friends for???

So for the first time ever, or at least in my somewhat limited memory, I was the BIG WINNER!  It is always the running joke to see who purchases more on our junkin' trips.  Hands down, I won this time and I am so glad!
She now stands majestically in my art studio where she is a beautiful reminder of my beloved grandmas and our trip to NaDa Farms.

Have a beautiful weekend dear friends.

Miss Clara M. is a beauty and I was happy to have her share the ride home with us:) And I'm even happier to hand over the "big winner" trophy to you, my friend...at least until our next junkin' adventure!!

Miss Clara M. is truly a graceful addition to your studio. I would venture to say she has a million zillion stories she could share with you if you listened very close. I adore her. Happy weekend...
