Oh Marilyn My Dear!!



Don't you just love this? I wish I'd bought it, but where on earth would I put it?? I'm telling you, if you can't find it at What's on 2nd?, you didn't need it!

Isn't she wonderful! But right, where would she go? I'd have her peeking out from amongst the plants on the terrace perhaps?

Bibi said...

Actually, I think she looks kind of scary...I thought at first she was eating a pretzel. I'll happily browse the store, but the head is all yours!

a kiss on the hand might be quite continental but pretzels are a girl's best friend. i'm with bibi, this marilyn seems to have a pretzel obsession.

Love the cracked lacquer.

Virginia said...

Actually it does look like a pretzel but it's a piece of a rusted planter or something as best I recall.

J'ai l'impression que Marilyn va chanter! Je suis sûre qu'un collectionneur va acheter cette statue!

Daryl said...

Maybe turn her into a planter or cookie jar? I also thought she was nibblng a pretzel ..

Loved the store, but I missed Marilyn. I found some great postcards to add to my collection though.

I'll never understand the undying popularity of Marilyn, but I like how you caught all the shine.

I'm glad you like it, but I think I'd pass. I remember too well Marilyn in the flesh!

What was the cost?

Virginia said...

Anon,
I have no idea!

Actually, it creeps me out. This is to sexy starlets as Chucky is to puppets.

Virginia said...

HA!!! I didn't know I'd "creep " some of you out. I"m laughing at that. I just loved the light on her and the crackle finish. It's always fun to see the perspective you all have.

Although it's well shot, I have to go with creepy. The "Chucky" reference is very funny, Bob.

JM said...

What a fantastic shot this is! I don't find it creepy I really think it's pretty cool but you definitely need a very special place in your house, or a very special house, to display it.

Having read this after reading your next day's blog on "Welcome to Birmingham", I thought the light spots looked a lot like "glistening"...you know, that's southern for sweating like a pig!!!
