My Estate Sale Find, Creepy or Cool?


I am going to tell you the story about my estate sale find and then you can judge if she is creepy or cool.


I was so thrilled to find this bust of a sweet girl at an estate sale, I snapped her right up! I thought she would look so lovely in my home.


Then weird things started happening! Nothing bad, but I would find her wearing my hats.


Then annoying things like taking the remote control


And hogging the bathroom, come on!


But, then it started getting creepy, like the morning I rolled over in bed and there she was! 
Always with those eyes!


But, I thought calm down, she gets along with the cats and they're a good judge of character...Right?


Then she seriously upset me!  
I have seen enough movies about showers!


That was the last straw
She's for sale! 
 I'm wrestling with myself, I don't know if I have to tell the buyer her history.  It's not like I'm selling a house or anything where you have to disclose the history, right?

I'll put her for sale in my booth at Orange Tree and write on the tag, 
"This sweet little girl bust would look so lovely in your home"


"She has the most angelic eyes"  YIKKES!

Now, Lets just keep her history a little secret among my bloggy friends, OK? 

I hope she finds a new home SOON!


Carol


I will be joining these fabulous parties
Open House Party at No Minimalist Here
Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville

Too Cute....She looks as though she is quite happy and content being that she has made herself quite cozy in that sweet home of yours...

If she is to leave your home..Maybe you can give her a going away party.. : )

Jeepers creepers where'd she get those peepers??? Oh yes, Carol...your booth is just the place for her... there's lots for her to play with there. Maybe she would like to sit in the front window with Polly where she could LQQK out at the passer by's.

Jane said...

Loved this post...so clever, but I don't think she's creepy at all! In fact, if I was in the area, I would snap her up ! Especially liked her in the hat....stylin'. :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What personality...heehee! I have a ROOM full of dolls and most people LOVE them! But a few will walk in the room and feel creeped out by all of the eyes...and babies looking at them! Most of my dolls look real...and get into mischief around the house, too! Very cute post...someone will be thrilled to find her! ♥

La said...

She may keep finding her way back to your house....

I think she just needs a friend who understands her. Maybe someone with a degree in psychology?

The shower one is my favorite. This post made me grin. I actually think she looks a bit like the lady who lived next to us growing up.
