...if I bring home one more creepy inanimate figure!
I rescued this little orphan girl from a local estate sale this afternoon.
She had belonged to the lady running the sale, said that her name was "Becca".
The ladies husband, Mr. Estate Sale Lady, looked pleased to see her go. He threw my husband a sympathetic glance as if to say "Good luck buddy, devil dolly is your problem now!"
Sheesh, sometimes I think people watch entirely too much TV!
I mean, just because she has an unfortunate bit of red paint there on the corner of her lip that sorta resembles blood...
Hey, how'd that pic get in here???
Anyway, here's Becca just hanging 'round the homestead this afternoon...
Living way out in the country = no nosy neighbors thinking you're nuts for having a naked child mannequin in your front yard.
I'm taking Becca down to the booth next week, just as soon as I find her some suitable attire.
I'm thinkin' a vintage girl scout uniform would be sorta cool, what do you think?
If she sells right away, great, if not, I'll change out her attire to fit the seasons or holidays.
Mr. Twig will just be relieved that she's leaving the house, no doubt.
Oh, and Mr. Twig didn't really threaten to leave me, that was just the "grab" to get you in here. He's far more tolerant and understanding of my weirdness than I probably deserve!
I scored lots more wonderful goodies at the sale, including a treasure trove of 1937 ledgers.
Photos coming next week!
So, what did you find on the garage/estate sale trail this fine Saturday?
