Surrounded by "ladies of inspiration"

I love of mannequins & dress forms! As you can see in the photos below, I undressed my latest thrift store find. I like her a little roughed up, but am unsure if I want to decoupage her with old sheet music or hymnal pages. What do you suggest?

Happy Easter!

Taken from a fantastic hymn, "Jesus Christ Is Risen Today":
Jesus Christ is ris'n today, Alleluia!
Our Triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

What a blessing to have Jesus in our lives!

It's been a beautiful long weekend that started with heading to the lake with my husband! It had been many months, almost a year since we've had the opportunity to have a couple of days together. We went searching for treasures all day on Friday in St. Cloud & found so many great vintage game pieces, clip earrings, old metal tags, buttons, medallions & a collectors edition scrabble game with blue scrabble tiles (I have never seen them before)! It's fun to have a second set of eyes digging in the corners of antique & thrift stores. We came home yesterday only to find a great suprise left on the front porch. I had purchased two lots of religous item from & couldn't belieive how beautiful the contents were. The rosary photo doesn't quite give them justice. Almost all of the rosary beads are glass! WOW....What a blessing!
