For Jayme.

It's called shock and awe girls. I was nonchalantly coming in from getting my mail
when I felt I was being watched.
I was. 

*cue evil music*

Imagine my horror as I peered over the bushes into the neighbor's garage to see this:


I know.  Frightening.  That hair.  Those ruby red lips.  The 'come hither' slant of her eyes....


I dared come closer to inspect the beast....and noticed the tag.  Ah yes, my neighbor sells at flea markets.  Mannequin Mandy works for him.  You'd think I would be totally thrilled to have such a neighbor, except 85% of his inventory is generally old lamp shades.  See them in the pic above? If only the dude had some industrial metal or chippy old lanterns instead of creepy plastic women in need of an updo.

Here's some video I shot for Jayme....she just loves artificial life forms.



Y'all just never know what lurks behind the neighbor's bushes...

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
This is so darn cute. Don't you just hate it when those darn noisy neighbors have to look over the shrubs and watch our every move? Ha! Ha!

Oh I love this mannequin and ofcourse it would make you take a second look. I hope Jayme appreciates the danger you took on to get this footage.

Oh you so tickled me this afternoon Cindy. Thank you for the gorgeous share. I am leaving with a laughing heart. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

My old boss hid a mannequin in the dressing room once......scared me to death when I went to turn the light on! (sort of gives you the creeps when that happens) So, I'm laughing with you today.

That is so creepy, but so funny! I had that happen once when I was on a walk. Someone was staring at me from the corner of a window. I realized it was just a cat. Oops!
