Today’s addition to the planet’s largest repository of blighted mannequins isn’t blighted. Or even battered or bruised.
Spring is here so please allow me this rare excursion from the norm for this mannequin that I later named Dorothy, who was spotted yesterday in Iška Loka, a village about a 30 minute bike ride south from Ljubljana, population 262. It was standing guard at the edge of this driveway where it was left as a 50th birthday present for the lady of the house, who apparently likes to bake. The only thing missing were a few cookies for the taking in her pan. I probably arrived too late for those.
New to this weekly series?
Then I strongly encourage you to invest just a few minutes and catch up here. And here, too, with a special video presentation (rounded out by a killer soundtrack!) I put together to celebrate the Mannequin Monday project’s first year — an entirely unexpected one year anniversary. It’ll all conspire to make your Monday just a little bit better than it already is and to serve as a blunt reminder that your week will only get better from here. Again, you’re very welcome. And don’t forget to tell your friends.
By the way, this image, snapped in Buenos Aires on 24 January 2013 also serves as today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 829th (!!) straight. When you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can check out some of those here. Enjoy!
And marginally related, a birthday song for the lady of the house mentioned above: Dorothy by Kevin Morby.
