So this dress was lusted after by me for a few weeks. I am pretty sure I seen it the day it came out onto the thrift store floor. The price was about 8 dollars. (Not bad not bad.... But not the best when you are a lady who can clothe her entire body for half that at times.) So what did I do?? Well I took a chance on waiting until this immaculate dress would end up becoming the dollar day tag color I needed it to be. I am sure 4 weeks went by. I would check on her from time to time. Lucky for me she was placed in an area of the front window that I could see when I would pass by. (As the store is seriously mere blocks from my house) I must have muttered "My dress is still there" many times to whoever I was with when we would drive past.
Patience paid off! I went right at opening time on the day her tag color was on discount. Un-hung her and thought in my mind... "I did it.. yes.. I win!"
The other half seen these skull roses I was bringing with me for photos and said: "Well... NOW you look Morbid"
Hence the name ... Mercy Morbid
So how could I make this frock post even more fitting?? Well see the building in the background? Would you be a little spooked if I told you it is a abandoned sanatorium? It started up in 1907 and ran until 1958
It is a rather chilling place to look at. I try not to look into the windows in fear that I may see a face or someone waving. *EEEpp*
After the Sanatorium closed they reopened it for other purposes until 1984 when it was closed permanently. People who have snuck in and caretakers and security of the property say it is haunted.
(See the look on my face above)
I am 1 a little bit sad a building so old is just left like a hollow shell
sitting to rot. 2 A little creeped out, and worried about hearing a strange noise or seeing someone that shouldn't be seen.
Maybe I was worried a woman from the past would see me and think "Ohhh there is my friend Pearl Anne I must go say hi to her!"
