Tallulah-Palooza Friday

I have no idea why Tallulah Mae was standing under the desk. She's a bit odd. But in a good way!

Rumor has it Christmas is but seven days away. Is that true? Yikes!

Paper Doll Fun

 So I bought some paper dolls a while back...and I DO plan to list them in my shop...but not until I play with them first! I love this set because of course I wanted to be a ballerina and took many years of dance lessons.
 Guess which one is me?
 Why this one, of course! She looks like me (dark hair, blue eyes), and she has a bird! Perfect.
 Love this outfit...who doesn't want what appear to be three-dimensional chicken appliques on their pants?
 Love this dress, too, with its matching gloves.
And the words "Babs" and "togs" in the same sentence? Oh yeah!

These were obviously well loved and played with, as they most assuredly have been if they'd been mine forty-some years ago.

At the end of a chilly drizzly day, this beauty. Ahhhh...

Windowsill Lovelies

It's amaryllis time! The beauty on the right is from Trader Joe's, and it bloomed within a week of arrival. The other two (which you can't really see) are from years past--I stuck them out in the potting shed and hope they'll also bloom. A green leaf is a good sign!

Hello, Big Boy!

When this pony Great Dane WOOFED at us as we walked by on the other side of the street, Tallulah Mae and I almost jumped out of our skins. Gorgeous creature! But big. And loud. WOOF!!!!!
