Here is my pride and joy, Lady Elenor.  I have been searching for her for ages.  Out at antique malls and online, only to just miss out.  Craigs list, again, always just sold.  Etsy and ebay, the same problem or way too expensive.  I can not tell you how long I have been looking.  But I knew she was out there.  Discouraged, yes, defeated, no.  I decided to take it to the next level.  Contact everyone I knew.

One of my ideas was to go on twitter.  So twitter on I did and how happy I was when I got a response.  Not just any response, but the the grail of all responses.  Someone in Colorado and near Denver, yes!!!!!
Rebecca at, http://www.facebook.com/maxandjaxvintage.  Her twitter name is Maxnjaxvintage.  She has this wonderful booth #68 at the Brass Armadillo.  She remembered a vintage dress form with a cage, down the Nebraska row at the Brass Armadillo.

So without any further information, off I went, with fingers crossed.  Was she the right style, how much, what condition and worst of all was she still there.  As soon as I arrived at the shop the following day, I went straight into the store and bee lined my way down Nebraska Row. There she was, in a dark corner, waiting to come home.
To be honest , I do not know very much about her.  All I know is that, Lady Elenor came from a dress factory in Kentucky and has wooden wheels.  If anyone has information on the date of her, I would appreciate it.

Why the name Lady Elenor?  Well, I am guessing that she is from the 1920's to 1930's based on the wheels and base.   Therefore, I thought of my mothers, grandmother.  Great grandmother Elenor.  However, I couldn't call her great grandmother Elenor.  So I decided, Lady Elornor had a perfect ring.
