Silver Sunday with Sylvia

It's Silver Sunday again at Gypsy Fish Journal, so allow me to once again introduce you to another member of my family....

Say hello to Sylvia, so named because she is, in large part, silver.
I rescued her from an estate sale garage two days ago, and told her not to get too comfortable, as she's headed to the booth next week!



Why, she even came with her original instructions still in the box!

This brings the body count to four in my house.
Four dress forms, that is.  ;-)
Beauties one and all, but Sylvia holds the honor of being the only silver one, and therefore the only gal invited to this lil' Sunday soirĂ©e.

Be sure to visit Beth at Gypsy Fish for links to all the other SS participants!

Sylvia is quite charming...
I think you should demonstrate this body double thing...Sylvia had quite a career in her day!
It gives new meaning to the phrase..."feelin a lil dritzy today"...
...oh how silly we can be when we can't sleep!

Barbara said...

Morning, I am happy to meet Sylvia, she has a great shape and is silver on top of that. Thanks for the smiles this morn, hope all is well with you.

Hello Anne, I have Sylvia's sister Pauline. I can not part with it. It is my favorite out of four that I use at the store. Dress forms are hard to come by in California. Do you see them often for sale in stores in Texas? I think Sylvia will move very soon to a new home...sandi

Sylvia's beautiful.It's funny the way things come to you when you think about it. I just started collecting kitchen scales and I won one, bought 2 and my friend gave me one. All old and crusty.
I sure wish I could go to your store!
Happy Sunday
I'm off to Renningers Extravaganza in Mt Dora.

Theresa said...

She is gorgeous in all her silvery beauty! Love it and I wish I had a sweetie like that! Have a blessed day dear Anne!

Silver that's too cute. I just love your post this morning, you make me smile.
Can you imagine putting that on to measure your figure.....I wouldn't want to see mine!!
I like Sylvia's little rosette.

Have a Happy Silver Sunday.

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

I've never seen a dress form like Sylvia....too cool. So have you tried her on? Just curious!!

Have a sensational Sunday.


Gypsy Fish said...

I love Silvia...we should introduce her to Ilene...she's vey old and doesn't stand as well as she used to (hence her name)...I think they would be fast friends..tee hee.
thanks for coming!...See you next Sunday!

Jane said...

Silvia is a stunner! I have one dress form (Shirley) that resides over my studio. I don't know what it is about these dress forms that I love...but I do!

bj said...

Well, she is just as cute as can be!!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Sylvia is quite the silver, sassy girl, Anne! Thanks for sharing her with all of us today. Happy Sunday!

Sylvia said...

hehehe, I had to laugh when I saw the name Sylvia...she is a beauty! I saw a dress form at the flea market yesterday and they wanted 265.00! Great silver find!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Poor Silvia! She doesn't like living in limbo...I can appreciate that!
Very unique!

Rust: Vintage Inspired Design said...

I can't believe the things you find...unbelievable....are you sure you want to sell this one! Amazing find.
Happy SS!


G'mornin' Anne,
Shopping again without me are you..he he.. Now that Sylvia is one beauty. I've not seen one with the stand..and you have the box to boot...what a terrific find. But I'm afraid you broke "my" rule of YOU shopping with out ME for the good stuff, so maybe you'd better be a good little thrifter and send her my way HA! (you know I'm playing with you, right?) Anyway, Anne hope you have a magnificant Sunday!

Chickens in the Basement said...

Sylvia is Fabulous! I want to clip vintage photos all over her!

LuLu Kellogg said...

Ooooooooo, I LURVE Sylvia!!

I am back up and running since my old Gateway Notebook caught that nasty "Storm Worm Virus" last week and it ate my entire hard drive. I lost everything. I now have a new Dell Studio 17 laptop, new Internet Security and a huge supply of data sticks to put my work on so this never happens again. If you don't have your work backed up, please get some data sticks and do so. I would hate to have this happen to anyone.

I am back in the saddle and catching up on Blog visits this morning! Missed you!


stefanie said...

she looks many ways for her to be dressed up!!!!

Linda K. said...

Wirey little thing, isn't she? Nice to meet you Sylvia! Welcome to Silver Sunday!. Nice post Anne!

the old white house said...

Sylvia is so cool, can you even imagine putting her on to get a fitting? I bet a man invented her, lol! O.k. Anne, you know we all want to know... have you tried her on? I think Annas idea is perfect... clip vintage pics all over Sylvia and let her shine! ~ Theresa

Carole said...

I've never seen anything like her. Would make a great display for jewelry!

Junk Exchange said...

can't see that name without thinking about dr. hook and the medicine show - you may be too young - sylvia's mother says -

sylvias mother says 'sylvias busy'
'too busy to come to the phone'
sylvias mother says 'sylvias tryin'
'to start a new life of her own'
sylvias mother says 'sylvias happy'
'so why don't you leave her alone'

1971 - i was so in love ..



Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

HI Anne ~ I can always count on you for fantastic inspiration. Sylvia is da bomb! Happy Silver Sunday!!!

Brenda Pruitt said...

You could put "the bodies" close to windows. Would-be thieves would see their shadows and think someone sees them! Might be a good security system!

Sarah said...

Anne, thanks for sharing the the stunning silver Sylvia. You do find the coolest things! ~ Sarah

Sherrie said...

I haven't seen a form like that in years. It brings back a lot of fun memories. Thank you so much for sharing.

Dixie said...

Sylvia is SWELL!

Heather said...

wow, that is so beautiful! Love her :)

LuLu said...

Oh my goodness it's stunning!! wish I could shop your booth!

north pal said...

congratulations on the growth of your family! one more is always welcome. Bestest,Denise

Vintage Blue Studio said...

I love dressforms and that one is extra special!

savvycityfarmer said...

everyone needs a sylvia ...

I just did my FIRST mr. linky ...I'm excited!

Debra@CommonGround said...

There's just something a little "freaky" about a chainmail dress form. It might look sort of funky as a Halloween costume or something! Sylvia will need to be careful at the mall, people will be able to "see right through her". bad, so bad.

Faded Charm said...

Sylvia is very cool. A dress form is one thing I don't have. A friend of mine did have a mesh one like this for sale at her Christmas Sale. I wonder if she still has it. I'd love to see your other ones.

Hope you had a nice weekend.

Take care,


Free Art Printables said...

She is VERY cool!!!!!

chicroses said...

I like did they size those dress forms then get them off without ruining the sizing they did...oh well... I enjoy you blog. Love all your pictures..sally

Melissa/Piney Rose said...

Wow - that is a great find! So many possibilities for her.

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Sylvia is just so perfect to hold some vintage pictures!
