So, the general concensus from my house-of-men, is that she is "creepy"!
O.K. I'll admit that it is a little weird putting a dirty, life-size doll, with falling-off legs in the dining room and then leaving for the weekend for all to discover (see Friday's post below).
All the men are in Medford at a Rock concert tonight, so I decided tonight would be a good night to "play" dress up. NO, not me, silly. Emily. So, after a bath and a good shampooing, she is clean and brighter eyed and ready for her make-over!
I spent Saturday and Sunday up in Eugene and Springfield searching each and every store - Salvation Armys, Goodwills, St. Vincent De Pauls, and other various flea market and second-hand stores - looking for accessories for Emily. I was on a mission - my travel companions will attest..."this for Emily" "that for Emily". But seriously, I DID find just the right stuff for her for Halloween. All for under $10 AND ALL second-hand sources!!!!
I think there will be no denying that even though Witches and Halloween are supposed to be CREEPY, she is very, very cute (cuter, in fact) in her little witch costume than she was in her dirty little sundress. I think she is happier too! She won't stop smiling......
