Vintage pink door and prom dress...

This is the very pink corner in my bedroom hallway.
I just picked up the pink door in Missouri recently not really knowing exactly where I was going to put it when I got home but I knew I couldn't walk away from it at $18.
Mr. Wild managed to squeeze it into the camper for me.


As we were driving around MO it dawned on me that it would go well with my 'new' old dress form that I picked up a few weeks ago so that I could display the prom dress I bought at a yard sale last spring for $5.


It's just all fell together without any effort. It's very pink but I love it.


I added the pink chiffon purse I found at another yard sale last summer, it still had the party invitation for the your girl who owned it at one time.


The heart rhinestone necklace seemed to be the right thing...


Not sure if this is a camisole or what but I love all the hand crochet that is on it and I hung it on a hand crochet hanger I made along with a fabric rose I made last summer.


I also found this old milk stool while we were away. A couple of years ago I saw a woman carrying one around at a flea market like this only it wasn't white. I vowed I'd find one some day and there it was in a shop just waiting for me, with white paint...all the better.

The rest of my Missouri and Iowa finds can be found here from an earlier post this week.

Fantastic pink door - just perfect with all of its chippy goodness! Five dollars for a lacy prom dress - score!!!! I never see prom dresses for less than $50 here in CT. Everything looks so lovely and you must put on a big old smile everytime you pass this sweet corner.

The dress and the door make perfect companions. Wonderful.

$18.00!! WOW! I remember when you found the prom dress, I was jealous then and I'm still Jealous!

Sometimes when I see things like that gorgeous prom dress and stool (but especially the prom dress) I wish wish wish I lived in an area where there are lots of fun old shops/garage sales/yard sales! Not done too much in my neck of the woods. You lucky lucky lady!
