Houseguest

Next to Jay's store is a bra store that's in the process of being remodeled and they are throwing away all of their old fixtures and mannequins. Jay rescued this fetching young lass from the dumpster:

Randomness about this young woman:

*I'm not sure, but I think she and my son might be dating.

*She had a friend, but she was promptly snatched up by another store manager who had recently broken up with his girlfriend. Make of that what you will.

*I don't think she'll be staying with us long. I don't need this bitch standing around making me feel bad about my body.

*On the bright side, I can for certain say that I will always have her beat in the brains department.

Any suggestions for artsy crafty things to do with a mannequin? Or maybe some type of practical joke? I have to make her time with me worthwhile.

I lived with a mannequin for a very long time. Her name was Naughty Dummy. She modeled hats, scarves, clothes... but she scared me, especially at night. I say make her into a lamp (a l "It's a major award!") and give her to someone special this holiday season. :)

Naughty Dummy. ha.

jay suggested a lamp too. i may have to do it.

Sandra said...

No suggestions for the dummy, but I love your randomness about her. Yeah, I wouldn't want to be looking at that bitch's body either. Actually, I might try sawing off the boobs and stuffing my bra...

Dani said...

I'm at a total loss. Speechless.

Rig her so you can use the carpool lane when driving solo.

Hahaha! I love this. We had a dummy like this once that a friend gave me. I thought I could use it like a dress form for my sewing stuff, but she was only from the waist up, so my hubs and his buddies set her up in the back yard, dressed her, and used her for target practice of the bows and arrows variety. It was pretty awesome. LOL I have a video somewhere....

I'm picturing myself coming to your house with some magazines and wine for a modge podge party with this gal.

so funny! i was thinking dress form or display too - soooo original i know. sell the bitch on etsy. and why can't my husband come walking in with stuff like this?

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

OMG this is too damn funny!

I'm surprised your son hasn't kidnapped her to his room.

I'd dress her according to the season - 4th of july - sparklers out of her "head" draped in a flag.

Or she can be like Flat Stanley.
You know how you have to take Flat Stanley places and photograph him everywhere?

Brains will always prevail Tammie -- not to worry.

slap some stamps directly on her and anonymously send her to that weird passive aggressive 'friend'.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Oh Tammie I think Mandy had the perfect idea!!!!

Dawn said...

I already don't like her...those boobs are way too perky.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

Great for selling clothes on eBay :)

Tammie said...

dawn: what are you talking about? her boobs arent any perkier than mine. HA HA HA HA HA!

taxi: great idea!! i sell my gently used clothes all the time and never really know how to position them.

spray paint that beeatch and bedazzle her? the possibilities seem endless such a crafty person as yourself.

at my house she would just hang out startling people in the dark.

Jess B said...

Jesus, Tammie! You made me spit coffee everywhere!

Maria Rose said...

You could paint her an awesome color and turn her into a lamp.

My brother had one and made her into "art". He put it in his yard that was mostly creepy. When he got married it mysteriously disappeared.

I saw a woman cover a bust like this one but smaller in mosaic pieces. It looked really cool. I'll see if I can find the link.
