The Shabby Tea Room #23!

I've been waiting so very patiently for this week to roll around in the Tea Room ever since Lisa set the theme!  When I saw Lisa's inspiration photo, I almost fell off my chair!  Isn't this the most scrumptious bedroom setting you've ever seen?  What I wouldn't give to wake up each morning in such vintage and shabby loveliness!!  Pure heaven!!

I collect tea sets, I have white shabby furniture in my bedroom and stamping room, I {heart} roses, ruffles, antiques, handmade quilts and pink!  This picture is so 'me'!!!  Lisa's theme this week is called 'The Delicate Cottage Rose' and she is asking us to create a card or project inspired by this photo - using the colors, theme and/or roses -- I used everything in my design ...

Our sponsor this week in the Tea Room is Squigglefly and they graciously provided the DT some yummy images to work with.  I choose the dress form image as it relates perfectly to the inspiration photo!  I decided to paper piece the little dress on the image with some Girls' Paperie DSP, wrapped a wide taffeta sash around the waist and topped it off with a Prima flower and pearls around the neck.

Squigglefly Digital Stamps

The dress maker DSP is October Afternoon, chipboard letters from K and Co., die cut from Spellbinders, vintage lace from Wrights, sentiment stamp from Unity.

Now your turn ... have a peek at what the other Shabby Girls designed for inspiration this week and then give this challenge a try!  I can't wait to see what you come up with for the 'Delicate Cottage Rose' theme!
