The lace, flowers and butterfly are all from the flea market finds....the leaves are from heritage...can't really tell in the photo but I added some chalking to give some depth to the leaves.
How fun are these boots from Heritage and this wonderful dress form from Forever Young....how ironic is that....LOL.....once again the red lace and rosettes from my find....
The silhouette is from heritage the lace pieces and jewel flea market goodies....I added some ribbon and fiber to the brooch clasp to cover it and love the look of it!
The glove is from Sentimentals with fiber and a pearl accent....The date is MS alphas...the hat from Forever Young, photo corner Heritage and photo mat A Child's Year....

Here is the poem for those of you not familiar....
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,
and I shall spend my pension
on brandy and summer gloves,
and say we've no money for butter.
I shall set down on the pavement when I am tired,
and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
and run my stick along the public railing,
and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
and pick the flowers in other peoples gardens,
and learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
and eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
or only bread and pickles for a week,
and hoard pens and pencils and beer mats,
and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
and pay our rent and not swear in the street,
and set a good example for the children.
We will have friends to dinner and read the paper.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me
are not too shocked and surprised,
when suddenly I am old
and start to wear purple.
