I love the braided trim detail on her jacket!
A few months ago, I bought six vintage trophy tops from Margo, at Junkin' Journal. She had found a treasure trove of drum majorette trophy figures, and I selected three gold metal and three silver ones, along with two diminutive trophy cups. None of the pieces came on marble bases.
Three merry drum majorettes.
The trophy cups stand fine without a base, but the drum majorettes had the screw-in bottoms and so needed bases. I took my gals to a local trophy shop, and for a $1.50 per piece, had them mounted on plain white marble bases. I can now add ribbon sashes or add "engraved" messages with scrap-booking items.
Photoshop piece I made using a photo of my daughter with her mellophone.
My daughter plays French Horn and Mellophone in the TWHS Band, so I can use these merry majorettes as awards during her senior year or as table decorations.
