She Said, I Said......

Hi Bloggerettes!  I met her at Home Goods, of all places.  She whispered to me...."Pssst....I bet that you don't have anything pink for Pink Saturday."  No, I really don't I said.  "I can help you out," she said.
"Take me home with you, she said and put something pink on me and you will be a hit!"  Then, she jumped into my buggy and away we went!

"Put some pearls on me and a rosette, that'll wow em..." she said.
"Now, put some pink flowers behind me, she said, and show my legs!"

Bossy chic, I said!

Be sure and stop by Beverly's How Sweet The Sound
and get your pink on!

That is so pretty, Sissie! I would love to have a skirt like that with all those ruffles!

Beansieleigh said...

Love your post, Sissie, and that necklace too! I had to laugh, because things like that, at all the shops and sales, are ALWAYS calling to me too!.. Darn them, they really can get me into trouble sometimes, when the checkbook starts screaming "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??!!!"... Have a great weekend! ~tina

Incipient Wings said...

i love home goods!
great find:)

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I saw one of those at HomeGoods when I was there the last time. As much as I wanted her, she wouldn't talk to me!

Sadly, I couldn't think of any place to put one, especially when I have two metal dress forms in the attic. I really should get them out and decorate those.

I love what you did with your dress form, especially love the necklace!

Dorthe said...

Pretty,pretty, so sweet and shabby- I love your pinks, dear Sissie
Wishes you a sunshine week-end.

trash talk said...

What a wanton hussy and what's a wanting woman to do but comply to her demands! She could hitchike a ride from me anytime!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

That's so cool! I can't believe you found it at HomeGoods, I've always wanted a dress form:@)

Feisty young lady, isn't she? But she does look rather gorgeous in her pink finery.

Debbie said...

Wow! I never bring home gals that I just met...but I understand why you liked this one.
Doesn't look like she'll eat much.
She's a beauty...especially the way you've dressed her!

That is a beautiful outfit Sissie. I love that pink skirt en those necklaces. Gorgeous. Wonderful it hopped in your cart. I love your new banner.

NanaDiana said...

Oh I hate it when those things start talking to you in the store and you start answering and then only YOU can hear THEIR side of the conversation so people start looking at you~like YOUR the crazy one, or something! But...look here...SHE was right...SHE was perfect for your pink post. I LOVE her. Maybe you can teach her to read aloud whilst you do housework...then she would be PERFECT!;>) xo Diana
