Two totes full of Raggedy Annies, Snowman.......... More Snowman ornies.... they look so cute all stuff in the basket! I think I have a Snowman theme going on. Even my Raggedy Annies have snowman dresses. I wanted to do a Santa but never could find the one I really wanted to do and then I just ran out of time. Maybe I will do one still.

First Snow

We had our first snow this morning.

It was not very much but there is something about that first snow that excites you. I was the only one up and I went outside to enjoy the first snow fall.

What I love the most is the quietness of the morning.

Winter has paid us a visit and I am sure there will be many more.

Items I am working on

Hi everyone. It is Friday and I thought I would have one of these items done by now. So I could list one on the weekend on Ebay but it has been a busy week. I do not know what happened to today. I had a hour maybe from 8am to 9am to work on these sad looking dolls. One needs hair the other has a mop going on and neither is wearing any clothes. I do have a thanksgiving dress for the blonde doll and the other is going to be wearing a christmas dress. They just look so funny sitting on my table right now.. This is a cute stitchery I did up for Christmas. I am just not sure if I am done with it yet. I was going to make a wire hanger for it but not sure......... can't make up my mind. I did get to go to lunch with a special guy today... Andrew This is my baby, he is five years old and they had a special lunch at his school today. We had a nice time. After our lunch together we both went and visited my Mom. Thats one of Andrew favorite places to go. Maybe I will get a chance to work on those sad looking dolls tomorrow......maybe.
