Evelyn Rose

Well, would 'ya look here at what I found? Our local Gottschalk's department store is closing up (sadly), so everything in the building is for sale. I looked at all of the mannequins (many or all already marked sold - and too expensive for me anyway), and this one (which is a torso only) was the only one who had a lovely rosy pink moire fabric covering on it. I grabbed her right up! I have named her Evelyn Rose - which are two special family names.
(Yes, I have named my headless, legless mannequin torso thing. Call me crazy. Ask me if I care?)
She is lovely:
And when I place her on a stool and she is wearing a long dress, you cannot even tell that she is missing part of herself.

'Tis happy I am to have her!
Welcome , Evelyn Rose.

Oooh, those are both special names to me, too! How lucky you are to have her. Years ago I had a full-body-but-headless mannequin, dressed in a lovely vintage 50s dress, but then-boyfriend, now-husband couldn't stand it. So long...

She is just perfect. I am glad to welcome her to the family. She has the same middle name as my youngest granddaughter, as you probably know. I will be looking forward to seeing her in person soon. Love T

Congratulations, Heidi Ann! evelyn looks mighty fine on her stool!

☺ Ha-ha! When I first started reading blogs I read one lady who was rolling her eyes over the weird ladies who name their mannequins! Well, she just doesn't get it does she?! ♥

Hi Holly! - And to answer your question: No, she doesn't get it at all.
