Three things to make me smile
That cute doll I just let love. It came in a box with other dolls a couple auctions ago. Every once in awhile you find a diamond in the rough. More like, more than you bargained for. Yesterday my new doll friend that I meant at an auction, showed me how to restring dolls. As we took this doll apart she told me its history. It was from Germany and probably 1930's. The legs and arms were numbered and probably mass produced. When they came to adding the body they improvised with a cardboard type molded body. It was between World War 1 and 2 and it was a very poor time. I really love the history on some of these dolls. I am keeping this girl for now. She has some imperfections but who wouldnt in close to 100 years.
Today one ofmy favorite stores had an anniversary party. This frame was a special. I put the picture that the photographer took of us. I had to justify paying for the picture, hah. My fairy garden plants died so I picked up these two plants for the pots. They arent real so I wont kill them.
The weather is wacky. It's cold, then its not. Some sun and some cloudy days. Very little snow here.
Have a great weekend.
