My Babies

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Hi All ,

So happy you popped over to say hello …. if you dont feel like talking …. no problem … ….. you are most welcome to just sit back and relax with a cuppa and read…

I dont know about you … but there are many things that I am quite proud of …  first and foremost my gorgeous daughters …..   I dont talk about them often as I am an intensely private person so there are some places that I just dont go …   that being one of them … though a day may come when I feed little tidbits here and there (no offense to anyone who does … so totally not my intention …. and this is what the freedom of choice is all about)  ….. my collections are the other …. I have several … books … tons of books ….  hummingbirds …… coffee mugs from plays I have seen  …..  places I have been  …… vintage jewelry ….. and my babies …. its not huge ….by no means …. but its quite  special to me ….  they are …..  to coin a phrase  …. neere an dear to my heart…pun intended …

I bought the pie safe they are housed in at a store closing many many years ago and knew back then it was going to be a wonderful haven for them  …

Confused?   What am I talking about you say?   My dolls of course …

Below are some photos …. I do hope you like them ….

 

 

I apologize about the date on the photos …. it was one of those …    do a much needed post “thang” ….. I have so many irons in the fire right now that I didnt take the time ….. shame on me  ….

So on with the show ….starting with the Barbie above….  standing next to the two taller Victorian  beauties …. she is a limited edition Ms November ….   My oldest daughter says the one who looks like a school marm on the right …. reminds her of a horror movie … one of the ones with the crazy dolls  … glad I didnt see it …  probably would have boxed her up and hidden her away already  !!…. you can click on the photos for a larger view ….

 

 

This cutie was the first doll I ever collected …. my sister bought it for me for Christmas one year …  I fell in love … and the rest is history … the doll in the pink is Ms November  also ….

 

 

I have been told this sweet cheeked beauty and the one above look like me when I was a little girl …  I would say thats quite a compliment …. wouldnt you?  Wasnt I darling!??  hehehe …..   I adore the sweet young man all decked out in his little suit …  precious !! ….

 


I am sure these ladies need no introduction …….My sister and I enjoyed many hours of play with the lovely Shirley Temple  … the one on the left was mine …. I believe  from the movie Good Ship Lollipop … cant exactly remember ….. my mind escapes me at the moment  … the other …. Rebecca of Sunny Brook Farm was hers ……  they are missing a few things here and there but still in fabulous shape for their age …

 

 

Just a couple of random sweeties …

 

 

You remember this craze?  Cabbage Patch dolls?   I heard they are making a comeback …    Little cutie eh?

 

 

And …. my little …..   Precious Moment ….   the head turns when you wind it up while music plays …..



 

So thats it for now …..I hope you enjoyed my little but lovely group of ladies ……. hoping to show you more of my treasures soon …..

Spring seems to be around the corner ….  cant wait … time to get my garden going …. house cleaning is on the agenda ….  digging the garden space (job for someone else actually ) ….after I plan it out … seed sowing and all the good things that come from lovely weather ….. hoping the pollen counts wont be too high so I can enjoy the outdoors as much as possible … tired of being in the house ….. so ready to sit on my chaise and read a good book ….  do love winter nights by a fire but I am stir crazy this year … guess its that good ol country air !

Do check back … more to come …

TO MY GOOGLE FRIENDS …. SEEMS MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DISABLED… NOT SURE WHY … I HAVE ALWAYS CONDUCTED MYSELF PROPERLY SO I AM AT A LOSS …. IN ORDER TO GET IT BACK … I MUST GIVE THEM MY CELL PHONE NUMBER AND THEY WILL SEND ME A TEXT MESSAGE…  AT THIS TIME I DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE ABOUT THIS …. SO UNTIL I MAKE A DECISION ABOUT IT CHANCES ARE I WILL NOT BE LEAVING COMMENTS ON YOUR BLOG POSTS … I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE …… IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS ABOUT WHAT TO DO PLEASE LET ME KNOW …

UPDATE:   OK …… GLITCH ON THEIR PART … SHOULD BE WORKING … KEEPING FINGERS CROSSED…

CIAO !! AND BYE FOR NOW … HUGS ! JO

 

My personal space

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Hello dear friends,

I apologize for taking so long to get a new post on here ….  its been quite a long time … and so much has gone on…

After Christmas I crashed and burned like you would not believe … between packing since August… then moving … then unpacking and trying to get this house together in time for Christmas … then baking cookies and cooking for our dinner that night …. I forgot to sit down and once I did I couldnt get up … Lordy!!

This in fact leads me to the reason for this post …

Back in January I had taken some photos of my personal space in my bedroom and thought I would show that to you now … though it is not quite  finished  … it is a great place to take time out … to put my feet up and relax …. to sit and read a good book or magazine … sip a cup of tea and enjoy the view from higher up …  I actually plan on changing a few things … ie …putting up different window treatments …I am thinking gray and white cotton duck … or perhaps white cotton  or creamy white linen…. until then however …. I will show you what has been done so far  …

FYI …. if you click on the photos …. once  for a decent view …. and again for an even larger one …… you can see more detail …..  They were taken while it was a bit overcast … when the sun is shining it is so warm and inviting … well I feel it is either way ….  however … I will let you decide that for yourself  ….


My little corner of the world…

View from my window … this is during a snow storm a while ago….

Is this not just a stunning view

Hope you enjoyed your visit … I have yet to accessorize  … add art or perhaps a mirror on the wall and a few other things but … that does not detract from the beauty of this little piece of heaven for me ….

Thank you for taking the time to come see me … I have some great posts coming up … will try and do them a bit more often ….

Hope everyone has a wonderful day … til next time

CIAO FOR NOW … HUGS JO
