One RR Doll Home

A couple of viewing options on this lovely who came "home" recently from the Time for Dolls club round robin. My doll was made from a Barbara Willis pattern, and I sent along some pretty but difficult fabrics to use on her. I'm *so* impressed with what the others did with her. Each person who had her "dressed" a body part, and then I got to put her all together. I also wigged her with the pink Tibetan lamb.

All the dolls in this group were just terrific - there was some real creative costuming - beautiful, colorful, and fun.

I know the background is a little distracting. I've been committing neatnesses all over the house, and can't seem to put together all the parts of the light cube!

Blessed Spring

After all my complaining and photos of the winter weather this year, it seemed time to show some photos that weren't of snow. Thank God it isn't snow season - with all the rain we've been having, we'd be up to our eyebrows in snow!

These photos are in no particular order, just a little something to make you feel hopeful.

Begonia planter bag on the pole outside the bedroom window.

Hibiscus plant, surround with some new-to-me lavender colored flower (in my mom's old sugar pot).

The freshened rock garden - note the replacement tree purchased. Apparently it was all the threat the pink dogwood needed to finally put out leaves.

A few hanging pots over the Hosta garden.

The geese that visit the pond every year - Abigail & Rufus - having a little chat with Cosmo.

My Oldtimer feeding A&R - note the action shot.

This is a shot of the neighbor's pond - the view outside my "tree house" window.

The geese came to visit Molly and me while I weeded the ivy lawn.

Not afraid at all, are they? (Molly is - see her peering through the daffodil tops?)

Yesterday, while trying to get the deck pots planted, it just kept pouring down on us. Nothing, however, deters my Oldtimer from accomplishing his to-do list on schedule.
