a working girl's makeover




I found this hardworking little girl at the Salvation Army. She was looking a little tired and worn, so I took her home to give her some love.


She was stripped naked then brought out to the shop for a lube job, making sure everything was in good  order, after all she is a working girl ;)






Her entire metal frame was given a new coat of paint, to give her that fresh (old) industrial look. I especially wanted to take the shine off those sparkly wheel covers.  Her new clothing is old grain sack, tailored to fit her unique shape.




I think she's pretty cute and has a lot of years left in her yet! 














Have an abundant day!
