I rather suspect it isn't just you! Me too, they tell such a story. And if they don't, we can make one up, right?

I know you love them Donna and I totally forgot I was going to do a post about mine mannequins. I'll torture you soon....;)

Me too Donna!!

The enchanted home said...

I can see the appeal, an old friend used to collect them and had them everywhere....I like one or two and think it adds some interest and character to a space....

Nancy said...

I love it, and great to accessorize and display scarves and necklaces! Have a great weekend.

No, it's not just you. They're great. I also love those little wood artists' models of the human form.

Me too! You already have a few pretty ones, Donna - show them off!

The floors in that first image are also yummy.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

NOPE - it's me too. I just love the interest and character that it adds to any space... I could easily start a collection. Enjoy your weekend - Jalon

I was in High Point yesterday at market looking at these, thinking the same thing. I love the look in the bathroom or a closet/dressing room!
