Meet Moira

Quirky? Weird? Sick? Scary? Funny? All of the above? What would you call it when you have a mannequin as a room mate?

For a very long time, I thought it would be a blast to have a mannequin. Kind of like playing dolls when you were a little girl - dress it up in different clothes, move it around the house in different positions, take it with you when you leave the house? My drawback is that they are expensive! SO, when a complete stranger posted a "wanted - mannequin" request on freecycle, I replied that although I didn't have a mannequin to give, I was also interested in obtaining one.

"T" and I struck up an email conversation over a period of a few weeks, coming up with funny situations the mannequins could find themselves in, or how we would dress a mannequin. Yesterday, "T" contacted me and said that she had a mannequin for ME!!!!!!!

"T" was so excited, that she had to drive all the way up to our house (nearly a 2 hour round trip for her!) to deliver Moira and help put her together! Although we had never met in person until yesterday, it was as though we had been friends for years! She ended up staying and playing a couple of wild games of Crazy 8's with us while we chatted and snacked on some dessert.

Thanks, MissE for covering her up!

Getting Moira's scarf just right - I have to find her some hair!
Saying good bye to "T".

Oh, my stars - we are going to have SO much fun with our "dolls"! Her mannequin has been named Alex and mine is Moira. Who knows where or when they might appear! Yes, we have plans.

THANK YOU "T"!!!!!
