The second installment...

Miss Skellie loves to take long bubble baths (maybe she stayed in too long this time!) She fills the tub with hot water and lots of bubbles, grabs her movie magazine and her shower pouf and she's ready to relax and exfoliate. (Maybe she just scrubbed too hard!?)
This is one of those projects that shows my slightly warped sense of humor. I'm not really "in" to scary, ghoulish Halloween things but Miss Skellie is just fun. The skeleton came in a package of four tied together to form a garland. I got the package for a dollar at the Dollar Tree. (I love that store!) These guys are harder to work with than the one I used for the doctor's office. There is less material at the joints so I couldn't just cut part way through and have the bones stay connected. I had to actually break the bones apart and reglue them into the position I wanted. Miss Skellie isn't very modest - it's a good thing there are all those bubbles!
I was just gonna give her the pink shower pouf and a pink towel but hubby didn't think that was enough to show that she was a girl. That's why she has the pink scarf on her head. I like that extra touch, though.
She looks so comfy that I might have to go take a bubble bath myself, lol.

HEy....Chris from Candid Canine once told me that you can use a heat gun to get their joints to loosen up......

I love the idea of being in the tub too long! The cap on her head cracks me up!!! Too funny!! And soo cute!!
