Happy St. Patty's Day!

Chandra and I just checking in to say Happy St Patrick's Day!

Chandra was a thrift store find.  She and her sister (another Chandra) were nude but in mint condition.  One  of them were tagged $1.98.  At this thrift store, the policy is that they will not allow you to purchase anything that is not tagged....and of course only "one" of them were tagged (downer).  I had my toes and fingers crossed that they would bend the rule just this one time in case I had to make a plea to the manager.  I said a little prayer that the cashier would be cool and not care that only one of them were tagged.  Heavenly Father please....and then I heard "your total is $4.54".  I whispered my thank you to both He and she and walked out of there smiling from ear-to-ear with my two SIS dolls...Chandra that is!  I gave her a boil perm, made her a sock dress and here she is...

 Blooper:  the curtain fell oops.  I didn't seem to notice it when Iwas taking the picure.  Lol!



Chandra had to make her appearance in the only diorama that I have set up (Lol)
 



Isn't she lovely!
