Josephine's Dress

I came home with this beautiful dress when Angelo I went out looking for shelves at the consignment store a couple streets over. It's really more like an antique store, and I should probably not go back ... because it's just too awesome! :) This dress, including the underdress, was only $25!! It is still white and only has one minor hole. It is hanging in my attic right now and I smile every time I see it... which is pretty often these days.
I also came home with this printer's tray for only $18! It could not not come home with me. I knew I'd find a use for it, and am thrilled with how it is holding jewelry findings and letter stamps. The letter stamps in the printer's tray is pretty exciting; I also print with them and they were always so disorderly before, it was a pain to use them.

The soul that these two items add to the atmosphere in my 130 year old attic is priceless to me. :)


  1. That is a teeny tiny waist on that dress. Just beautiful!

    I have never seen a printers tray in all my years of antiquing. Nice find!

  2. yes, it certainly is! I would surely need a corset to fit into it. ;) This is the first I've seen a printer's tray; I knew I couldn't pass it up! :)
