Green woman


Wow, I am good at starting projects, but I take forEVer to finish them. Over a year ago, I picked up this mannequin at Goodwill, and intended to paint her and put her in the garden. I had all sorts of fantastic ideas, and with so many ideas I became indecisive - so I painted her a beautiful, solid green!

Was (and still am) considering adding some fake vines from Michael's, maybe some earrings attached with push pins, stencils... but then decided that hats, masks, and other accessories will work just as well. I am also going to keep her indoors.

With this mask and her new color, I dedicate this little photoshop-enhanced image to Ecocatwoman.

Thank you! I've got her in the entrance foyer where she will probably scare children and Jehovah's Witnesses. Ha!!

Oooooh. Thank you. I love her and the kitty over her shoulder. The cat actually looks a lot like a hanging metal candleholder that I have. Love it, love it, love it.

The kitty IS a candleholder (same one you have, maybe?)! We don't put candles in it though.

Mine has a "door" on the front to get inside and place the candle.

Yes, this one has a little door, but it's on the back.
