My Newest Addition

A few years back, one of my longtime bff's called me up to ask if I was interested in some mannequins that were going to be deep-sixed out the back door of the dept. store she worked at.

"Really??" I asked - heck yes I was interested! She brought them over to me and they were just about the coolest things I'd ever seen. On top of that, I had just bought two vintage sailor outfits on eBay and not only did they fit like a glove, but there was a little girls outfit and a little boys outfit! Now, who in their right mind would have ever thought I'd have clothes to fit these two display mannequins? It couldn't have been more Perfect!

I love these two - they reside in my computer room - they have been a constant companion for many an early morning cup of coffee :)

Well, I got a phone call on Friday afternoon, asking if I'd like to adopt another orphan and of course I said YES!

I was expecting another toddler but when she brought it in, my heart leaped for joy - it was the sweetest faced little infant in a sitting position. So once again, I went to the dungeon to see what clothes I had down there - I had an outfit (not vintage like the others are) but it was a perfect fit and for now anyway, my newest child doesn't have to sit around nekked!

Aren't they precious? Thank you friend - I will love them forever ♥
