the quipsters

"Holly regretted not sporting the matching ric-rac jacket to loan to the naked statue."
"Madge felt the stare of the statue gaze upon her wherever she went."
"Shirley had forgotten to wear her watch and she wondered if her friend was fashionably late for the
5 o'clock rendez-vous at the atrium cafe.  Her stomach growled, as she had forgotten to have a proper lunch."


The series of gals were done for a client and never purchased nor used and I found them in a file and thought that they might bring you a smile.  I had great fun creating these gals and the witty remarks, so this shall be a series of what I am naming "the quipsters."

Please feel free to inspire me with any flattery, scene or verbal equivocations for this series.  I must admit that I often love to eaves drop and gather future fodder.

These gals are styling too much to be kept up on a shelf. How neat if they could become a series, called, friends getting together. Maybe for breakfast, shopping, lunch, tea, in need etc.... xo

I love those rick rack skirts, just perfect for summer and what every discerning statue should sport!

Thanks for starting my week off with a giggle, Patricia. Holly, Madge and Shirley couldn't help but think how happy they were to get out for a change, and how glad they were to be dressed for the occasion!
Happy Monday!

Look forward to seeing more.

Holly said...

These are fun! I always like the ones that state the obvious - but of course I can't think of a good example right now.

These are wonderful! I hope that Holly and Madge aren't upset that they're sporting similar skirts. I'd love to be joining them for lunch or a spot of tea...
