Of dollz and thingz...

It's been an interesting week around here! First of all, April sent me amazing photos of the girls shopping. There are many more photos (all of them wonderful!) so we think they might have to have a blog of their own. Stay tuned!

If you read this blog regularly, you might remember that last year a mockingbird sang most of every night in a tree over our house from May until August. He was LOUD and am unhappy to report he is BACK. He starts singing around three a.m. and continues until sunrise.

Although I am feeling a little hostile due to lack of sleep, I have to admire this kind of tenacity. So, instead of being angry, I made a spun cotton bird in his image and will resist the urge to stick pins in it. I also made that little burro.

While looking for something else, I found the missing baby from a previous post. It has been in a box for about a decade. I wanted to show it to April and e-mailed her this photo.

April e-mailed me back within moments. She took a photo of my Jane with the same little glass pitcher! What are the chances of two people owning this Depression era Scottie? They were giveaways in cereal boxes meant for kids to use. April and I have never met in person but we frequently discover coincidences.

The work week dwindles and there is much left to be done. How is your week going? As always,

enjoy the day...

... and happy weekend

Oh these posts are so funny! A blog would be great.

Love the little donkey and the mockingbird is so cool. The wings are really well done, Helen.

I love those little baby dolls too. They are charming.

I hope you get some sleep!

Your Mockingbird looks so Real! I still think you need to make a female to lure Romeo outside your window. Every day you can move her away from the window a bit...hopefully Romeo will follow his true love. When Juliet is down the street and around the block, that should solve your problem!
That little burro is the sweetest thing ever!

We had a cardinal that banged against the window at all times. They can drive you crazy.

Oh H. These posts are so sweet. I love the adventures of Jane and Martha. The mockingbird..I don't know what to say. I bet he is you have a cat? Now I don't mean for the cat to eat him, just make him find some place else to sing.
