Her name was Lola...
She was a show girl...
and then she moved to the suburbs
and had four kids.
This is a wicker mannequin
I picked up years ago mainly
because of her price of about $25.00.
I never quite got over her
Madonna - esque top half.
She was covered in plaster cloth.
I fully intended
to cover her in book pages.
Well.... until I stuck my finger through her.
The thought of covering her in paper then
having her blow over
and ruin herself
made me not want to cover her in paper.
So after a year or two encased in plaster
I ripped it back off.
Luckily I had covered the base in Saran Wrap
so she was in pristine condition.
So Lola had a little surgery and a nice spray tan.
I thought about making her a nice linen
apron to give her a softer look.
Walking through Marshalls
I spied a $10.00 clearance dress that was
nuetral AND vintage looking.
Girl has got it going on now!
You don't have to cover
the kids eyes when you pass my booth!
She also came in handy twice as a model
for two lovely ladies
that wanted to layer some necklaces
have an idea what they would look like!
Lola is modeling again -
revived and feeling good about herself!
So even if you don't like something
the first 15 times around...
16th time is a charm!
Keep looking until you see something you like.
What do you have that you would like to see in a different light?
