Our hearts belong to Honeyshine! February 17 2012

 

Hi Honeyshiners!

I would like to introduce to you my friend, colleague and fellow mannequin, Norma. You may have seen us hanging out in the front window at Honeyshine.  We both have been having similar issues – not being able to sleep at night, spending hours shopping on the new and improved www.honeyshine.net, and feeling a special tingling in our chests.  Well, Daisy and Adam took us to the doctor’s office to get checked out.  Turns out, we have Honeyshine in our hearts.  The doctor told us to spend a little less time standing around and a little more time exercising.  As you can see, we’re still standing around, but it’s good to know what that special feeling is.  Rumor has it if you shop Honeyshine online and buy something, enter the code Honeyshine Online to receive 10% off your purchase of $50 or more!  Gotta go and get my 10% off deal.  


Holla-day shopping! December 10 2011



Has it really been that long since my last entry?!  Well, I have been staying busy.  There’s been a lot of standing around, looking good – hosting parties – having my photo taken for magazines (it rhymes with Phinneapolis Paint Fall Tagazine), hanging out with interesting people (no, not you, Daisy and Adam).  One nice thing about the upcoming “season of snow” is that I get to spend it indoors – standing outside was getting rather uncomfortable.  You try swatting away bugs and falling leaves when you’re made of fiberglass – then again I can wear sweaters made of insulation.  It’s so cozy – especially that pink stuff! 
 
So, holiday shopping is in full swing – I know, but just go with it, bare down, stay focused, eat well, drink…well, stay hydrated.  We’ve got some great gifts – especially for those of us that are hard to buy for…I’m partial to the new wallets made of vintage suits and ties.  We also have a great array of unique tree ornaments.  If you’re in the mood for one-of-a-kind pieces of art, we have a whole wall full in the back…I’m not allowed to go back there anymore.  A few weeks ago, I went to use the bathroom (best one in Minneapolis by the way – you gotta check it out!), and yes, it’s a little known fact that mannequins only need to use the bathroom every three weeks…we’re like the sloths of the biped world.  Anywho, I was walking out of the bathroom and decided to take a closer look at the art.  Turns out I have poor depth perception…suffice to say, I’ll be working off that painting for another few weeks…just in time for my bathroom break!
 
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog…if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and I’ll tell you some stories that aren’t fit to print…you wouldn’t believe what I see through these windows at night…   

  


Just Keeps Getting Better... December 10 2011



WHERE TO BEGIN?! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS JOB! I'M THE LUCKIEST GOAT-LIKE MANNEQUIN IN THE WORLD. I HAVE MET SO MANY AWESOME PEOPLE. I'M CONSTANTLY GETTING COMMENTS ABOUT MY CLOTHES...PEOPLE STOP AND TAKE PHOTOS WITH ME...SOMEONE EVEN DROVE BY AND HANDED ME A HOT COFFEE - WITH SOY MILK!!  THEY MUST KNOW ABOUT MANNEQUIN'S ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DAIRY.  


LET'S SEE...WHAT ELSE.  OH, SOME PEOPLE CAME BY THE OTHER DAY AND TOLD DAISY AND ADAM THAT THEY HAD SOMEONE THEY WOULD LIKE TO SET ME UP WITH ON A BLIND DATE. I GUESS THAT WOULDN'T BE THAT BAAAAAAAD.  FOR THE MOST PART I JUST STAND AROUND THE STORE AT NIGHT. I JUST HOPE SHE'S NOT A WOLF LIKE THIS OTHER "EMPLOYEE" THEY HIRED.  HAVE YOU SEEN HER?!  SHE JUST SITS THERE AT THE TABLE...PRETENDS I'M NOT HERE.  THE OTHER NIGHT I THOUGHT I'D MAKE SMALL TALK AFTER THE STORE CLOSED.  I SAT DOWN, ASKED HOW HER DAY WAS.  I DON'T GET IT.  MAYBE WE JUST DON'T SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE.  WE'LL SEE...UNTIL NEXT TIME PEOPLE...STOP BY AND CHECK OUT ALL THE NEW GOODS IN THE STORE.  DAISY AND ADAM HAVE BEEN BUSY!
