So I Was Mindin' My Own Business...

When I hear a loud "thunk, thunk, thunk" on the front door.
We live waaaaay out in the country, so I'm thinking "who the heck could this be?"
I crack the door just a smidge, and what do I see but....

 


What the?????




"Hey, y'all! It's Ruby
I'm here to help ya sell your hats and scarves and earrings and bling in your Etsy Shop!"

Oooooo-kay.....

"I mean, just LOOK! I can rock a cowboy hat! 




 "I can TOTALLY rock the winter look!"



 


"And just to show ya how well I'll fit in waaaaay out here in the sticks....



...Bass Pro Shops baby, don't you know it!"


"And see, I can even sit here on your laptop, all serene-like, while you study for ACLS..."



 

 Ha! Look at that coif and those lips! Do you see anything "all serene-like" about Ruby?  ;-)
Still, the gal does have a point.
I really have  needed a helper to showcase my fab vintage bling, and since she's already here...

I vote she stays! What say you?

In breaking news, I see that someway, somehow, I just this afternoon picked up my 500th Follower.

Wow.

I'm speechless and honored and completely thankful to everyone who has ever read a single word I've written! For sticking with me through good times and bad, I salute you!
Towards the end of the month, I'm planning a big giveaway to celebrate the event and to say thank you, so please be sure to check back!

But for now, hop on over to Donna at Brynwood Needleworks, she's having TWO absolutely wonderful giveaways!
First up, she's having a Sweetheart Valentine Giveaway!



Secondly, because she just hit 200 Followers (YAY Donna!), she's having a megapalooza



Hurry over to see Donna now!


And while you're making the rounds, don't forget to stop by  
My Romantic Home to share in Show & Tell Friday, hosted by Cindy! Always a blast!

Have a beautiful Thursday!

Holy Cow! Now I just went back and saw that you started blogging in July! Five hundred already? Girl, what is your secret? Sometimes I feel like if I don't bribe people I'll have no followers at all.....sniff, sniff. I'll do anything, just tell me your secret. now. Ha!

Wendy said...

I've had my eye on a Ruby look-alike for quite some time now. Thanks for showing off her many moods!

Annie said...

I adore Ruby - so much fun! However, I won't lie - I think she's scare me like crazy if I walked in a room forgetting about her! My sister is a cosmetologist & she used to do that to me all the time when she was in school! Also a big congrats on the followers - I'm working on 50 and I'm always excited by the new ones!

Jennifer {Studio JRU} said...

She is *great*! 500 followers... fantastic! How did you get them to add up so quick??

trash talk said...

Is that what they mean by "Talking Heads"? Just watch her around the hubster...got a feeling she's a gal not to be trusted around the menfolk! So sassy!

Karen said...

Was she in a basket? She came with just a head? I think it's amazing she's still alive! And she's pretty and amazingly healthy! I think she's going to sell a LOT of hats, she won't eat you out of house and home, and she will work for cheap!

Unknown said...

lulu redstar said...

Candy said...

Dang she's gorgeous. One to steal the show for sure. Glad you stopped by, always happy to meet a fellow Texan and sounded like a kindred spirit of junk and such.
Look forward to more sharing in the future but now I'm popping over to Donna's to put my name in the hat. Looking forward to the sunshine returning for a couple days...
Blessings ;-)

BellaRosa said...

Anne amor, I think Ruby is just Fabulous and you must use her to showcase your beauties...I mean, I see her and my lips just pucker up all on their own and do the muah sound :) see she has to stay! :) Thank you for sharing these great Giveaways! Now go back and study!! :) Besos, Rose

Karen said...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, too, AND for shopping with me! I'm going to have to stalk/follow your blog! I LOVE to laugh!

sjmcdowell said...

Dear Anne, You have no idea how much I appreciate your visit to my Blog and the lovely comment of compliment you gave me on my little art collage!! Thank you and may God Bless you and yours. Hugsss Susan in Georgia

June said...

Oh my yes Anne, I vote she stays...but did you ever ask her how she made it all the way out to your house in the country with no arms or legs? That would just creep me out.
She's a beauty though, so no matter how she got there, I think she's a keeper.
hugs

The Flying Bee said...

Oh yeah, she stays! Yay for 500!!!

Oh, and thanks for your sweet comments on my last post.

Love ya much!
Adrienne

deb.kennedy said...

Oh, yeah, Ruby stays for sure!! I do think she needs a little beauty mark right...there... above her pouty lip.... yeah, there. ;0) And ya know, you can always get a wardrobe of WIGS for miss Ruby to wear, just to give her some options.

I met Lulu, the creator of these, at the SFIGF years ago when she was debuting her new line of fun mannequins - people either LOVED them or made a funny face when they saw them. I think they are darling! You are so lucky to have one!

deb said...

Congrats on 500!! Loving Ruby! Does she have a friend?? LOL
So nice to meet you. Thank for the visit and sweet comment. Have a wonderful weekend!
*hugs*deb

Artsy Fartsy Junkin Finds said...

OMG, go to my blog and look at the last pic of the current post. Same Mannequin head from a vendor at the Mill. Where did you get her, I love them. Hope all is well. The long hours are killing me. Hugs, Janna

Jill said...

Love her! Keep her! Did you name her or did she come with it? Ruby fits her perfectly. (I have a mannequin named Ava.) My kids think she's (Ava, not Ruby) creepy. I thing she's wonderful!
Wow! I also fell for your desk organizer behind your laptop!

Cindy said...
