As my maiden name is Borchers......this dress form that I found in Warrensburg, NY last October really was calling me! Her tattered and torn black covering fell apart to reveal a version of my family name! It was meant to be! It has a nice black finial which seems to be missing from my picture.....won't she look pretty in the black slip with the many crinolines that is somewhere in the back of the attic closet? I don't think I have ever met a dress form I didn't like.... I have a wire one that we found at the Red Barn, a brown linen one I found in Mystic, CT while shopping with Paula and a navy and creme one that is missing its bottom half....thought I would cover that one in rhinestone pins. If I get to it, I will surely post it!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
