Dress Form Sneak Peak And A Very Special Angel

Happy Sunday.  



Remember this pretty dress form I got awhile back in one of my fave shops.  I am transforming her into an angel to be part of my Christmas theme this year.




She got a new crown collar.
Some new bling for her waist on the tutu.
And she got her wings.  Beautiful feather wings.





She is looking pretty sweet with her new bling.


She is underneath my framed chalk board with the wing saying.



 I wanted to give you a sneak peak at my new dress form angel to go along with my white serene angel theme for this year's holiday decor.  I am having fun getting my decor happy on!!!!
I am excited to have been asked to be in a Christmas house tour next month.  So more will be coming on that.

Just a little PS about a very special angel.
My granddaughter Abby is 5 years old and did the most amazing thing this past Friday and I have to brag about it.


This is my granddaughter Abby.  She is 5 going on 16!!!! I swear!!!  Well you can see how much hair this girl is blessed with.  Well Abby told my daughter that she wants to cut her hair and donate it to a little girl that has lost her hair due to cancer treatments.
So at the salon where my daughter works they were able to cut Abby's hair and then donate it to Locks of Love from Abby.

All the employees of the salon were doing a throw back to the 80's.  It was the salon's 30th birthday and all of them dressed like the 80's.  So it was big hair day all around lol!





Kennedy is one of the stylist at the salon that finished up Abby's new do.  I love how cute she looks with her new bobbed hair cut. They cute off 10 inches of her hair.

Abby was so excited to donate her hair to help another little girl in need.  One thing about my girls and now Jen's little girl is they all have tons of hair.
I have to tell you it really made my heart feel so big as this little girl gave up her long thick hair to help another child in need.  I am so proud of this little girl.  She has a heart of gold and at 5 years old already so generous and caring.
Just so proud of her so thank you for indulging this MiMi (grandmother)  in bragging about this precious grand daughter of mine.
I told Abby because she was so generous with the donation of her locks of hair that I would treat her to a mani and pedi day with me.

She loved getting her mani done and picked out red sparkle nail polish.

Of course she had to have matching toes in red sparkle polish too.





We even talked grandpa into a mani/pedi with us.  It was a fun day and we all walked out of there with pretty nails and toes.  As you can see Terry was not real thrilled about me taking his picture getting a mani and pedi done.  He was a good sport to have this done.  It made Abby so excited that he would be part of this too.

Have a great week ahead.
Kris

  10. Bless Abby's huge heart. I cannot imagine going through cancer as a child - it's hard enough as an adult. Abby will truly make a little girl smile with her wonderful gift.
    Your entire family puts love out into the world in so many beautiful, generous ways, Kris. Hugs to you all.

  14. Kris, I love this post. Your granddaughter has a true loving heart. She is cute as can be in her new do, and those sparkling nails. I had to laugh at Terry's expression getting his nails done.

  17. Kris,
    Your angel is beautiful and to me symbolizes peace. Now your precious earth angel grand daughter has a gracious huge heart. Her gift is one out of love. Sweet Abby's new do looks pretty. I showed John the photo of Terry and here is his exact words "Oh geeze"! Kris your family rocks!

  19. Abby's love came first in a beautiful generous way!
    A real giving heart.
    I have to mention many years ago my daughter Hannah did the same thing for locks of love where her class room girls all joined in, well most of them that could. It was a tear jerking moment for all of us.

    Abby with her big girl bob looks adorable, and the mani pedi is perfect, celebrating the day with grandma and grandpa....tell Terri I have quite a few guy friend who often get nails and toes groomed it's becoming a trendy guy thing as well.
    What a good sport Terri was to indulge his granddaughter a moment in time she won't forget :)

    The feather wing quote I love, and the wings are great, Kris have you tried them on? .... I know you sure deserve to wear them as often as you want!

    Looking forward to your Christmas home tour.

    Xx

  49. Hi Kris! Wow! Your angel mannequin is wonderful! I love the additions of the bling and those wings are really gorgeous! I really like the saying on your chalk board as well! What a wonderfully generous thing for Abby to do! Such a big heart she has and her new do is so cute! I really like it! Love the red sparkly polish too - what a treat! I can see that Terry really loved the experience - what color polish did he pick out? LOL I think I'd better duck before I get the long-distance thwapp! It sounds like a great and fun day and so wonderful that you were able to be there with her to show how important her generous deed was! Congrats on being chosen for the house tour too! I can't wait to see all the angels - you know how much I love them. Enjoy! Hugs, Leena

  51. First of all, your sweet Abby is just precious! I have hair envy! She looks so pretty with her new bob. I wish my hair was half that thick. It's such a wonderful thing to watch little ones do something from their heart.
    Your angel is gorgeous and I love the quote on the chalkboard. So, what ARE you going to wear? ;)
    Hope Terry enjoyed his mani/pedi...Magoo loves to go. I'll admit the first time was a bit traumatic, but after he saw other men there he was ok. Who in their right mind doesn't love a mani/pedi???
    I'm so glad you are having fun decorating. xoxo, T.

  66. Abby is the most adorable thing....and of COURSE you want to brag....it's what us Grandmothers do...it's our job. :)

    Your angle is so pretty. I am real funny about just "parts" of bodies...like only heads with candles coming out the top...or those praying hands...and most of the time, just wings bother me...but your pretty feather wings seem to "belong" to a body so I love them. Now, all we need to do is find a pretty HEAD....:).....just kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Of course she picked out red sparkle! Love that. And love that she donated her hair. That is so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Awe, what a sweetheart! Wow, I can't believe the amount of hair she had/has. Sounds like the three of you had an awesome day together. Now onto that fabulous dress form...oh my am I swooning over those angel wings. The saying on the chalkboard above it is priceless!

  70. Absolutely beautiful angel you've created, Kris! Where, oh where did you find the feather wings? I love the chalkboard quote too! You are truly amazing with your decorating talent.

    You've created a real live angel too...maybe a few of them. :) Abby must have an awesome Mom besides her Mimi. Such a generous gift from such a sweet girl. Her new hair style is adorable!

    This time of year adds to the missing of my Abby. She loved all holidays but especially Christmas! One day I'm going to put up a tree and the next I'm not. Guess we'll see what happens...

  71. You are soooo creative gorgeous Kris - I love the dress form!

    WOW your darling grandie Abby is such a sweetie having her hair cur off and donating her beautiful locks to a little girl in need.
    What an exceptional human being - she could teach us all a thing or two.
    Kids amaze us don't they - they have no barriers or hang ups!
    I'm sure her Mimi is a big influence in her life.
    It's such fun to do girly things together and bless Terry for being such a good sport and joining in too!
    Hugs to you my sweet friend
