New Friend – Miss Penelope Rose

It’s always nice to welcome new friends into your life.
   I have a lovely lady friend that has moved into our home and I hope she stays around for a very long time.
My friend is not much of a talker but she listens well.
I have to admit when we first met I was a little jealous of her great shape but we have got past that now.
 I have noticed she is a little rough in places, but aren’t we all?
 She is really fun to have around and I have enjoyed having another lady in the house.
 Yesterday I pulled out my jewelry and we tried it on with different outfits.
My friend is not much of a talker but she does listen well.
She doesn’t have a lot of clothes but you gals know I love to shop.
Let me introduce…
Miss Penelope Rose



Right now she is a little naked!
   I have to go shopping for lace and other pretties to doll her up but I couldn’t wait to introduce her to all of you.  Having Penelope Rose around will be a lot of fun…sort of like a grown ups Barbie doll! 
I have wanted a vintage dress form for a long time but you know I am really cheap cost conscience.  I am happy to say that Penelope Rose was quite a bargain!
On another note..
 We leave for our trip to Venice and the Greek islands in eleven days!!
I am really excited,  and somewhat stressed with working on last minute trip details.   Now we are dealing with everything that needs to be handled with the sale and closing of the beach house.  It is suppose to close while we are on the cruise.
I hope you will bear with me if my post and comments are limited until we get back from the trip.
Is anyone interested in taking over the Open House party for three weeks while I am gone?   My email address is on the sidebar.

  2. Sherry,
    Love your new "friend!" I have one too, although mine is not as vintage as yours. Mine can usually be found wearing my newest knitted project–right now a shawl, and whatever jewelry hasn't yet been put away. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh Penelope Rose you've got it going on girl!! She is terrific. I have been looking for one like that, with the cage on the bottom. I have a more modern one (like from the 50's), but yours is PERFECT!! Thanks for sharing her!!


  4. I absolutely love it Sherry!! What a special something to add such personality to your room…gorgeous and love that vanity. Greek islands and Venice…ahhhh, you are soooo lucky!! Enjoy and safe travels:)

  5. Oh, she is a beauty. I love her old advertisement on her chest. Hope she will be fine by herself while you are gone on your trip.

  6. Miss Penelope Rose is certainly a beautiful lady, and has quite a figure. I'm sure you'll have fun accessorizing her… have a great weekend,

  7. have fun! I went to the Greek isles a few years ago and it is just magical! When I got back I told everyone I was moving and they could forward my mail to Santorini. Love your new girlfriend!


  8. Penelope Rose is beautiful and she has quite a figure on her… I'm glad to see you are getting along so well. Two beautiful women in one household could have it's moments.

  10. Sherry Penelope Rose is fabulous! I know you're going to have tons of fun with her! And have a wonderful trip! (I know you will*winks*) I'm on my way over to Lynne's place in the hope that she's shared that cherub on a dolphin…. *winks* Vanna

  11. Nice to meet you, Miss Penelope Rose! She's so fun, Sherry! And, what a great spot for her … I know you'll enjoy dressing her with baubles.

  12. What a classic piece!
    Sounds like you are going to have a fabulous vacation! I LOVED Venice but have never been to the Greek Islands. Should be some great design inspiration! Take lots of pictures and please give us a full report when you return! And thanks for stopping by today!

  13. I have mannequins in all sizes. What is the attraction? Who knows, but I can't resist and can usually find something clever to do with them. Yours looks well loved.

  14. She's a fabulous one..Hope she doesn't scare you at night. 🙂

    While you are gone, you COULD just preschedule the 3 OPEN HOUSE…set your schedule and post them automatically. I use that feature all the time and, so far, it has worked for me. Just BE SURE you get the right date in, that's the important thing.

  15. Miss Penelope Rose has found a perfect home! She looks beautiful and is quite happy next to your pretty vanity. Thanks for having us,Sherry. Enjoy Santorini and Venice with lots of pictures to share with us.And congratulations on the closing of your beach house. I'm so happy for you. Hugs~Poppy

  16. Hi Sherry…

    Ohhh…she's a beauty, my friend! What a great find! Yes, she will be so much fun to dress! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing her with us…I would love to find an old vintage dress form!

    Warmest wishes,

  17. I recently scored a similar "lady". We've named her Lucille. While our bedroom is being redone she is temporarily in the dining room. I draped a linen shawl around her shoulders, then added a beige crotched vest and a few necklaces. My DH added his worn out straw hat. Visitors all comment about Lucille and a few have asked to have her bequeathed to them.
