Perfectly perfect creepy doll

Sitting out in the gravel parking lot, she had the perfect creep factor. Missing an arm and both feet, and her hair, I knew she would be perfect for some sort of art project. My dear friend Betty suggested photos for journaling.

How perfect would that be!

She didn’t have a price so they held her for me until the owner could put a price on her. For 3 dollars, she is my new partner in crime when it comes to thrift store haunting.

Isn’t she creepily awesome?

Enjoy this day.


Hey Hey, Wednesday

Peeps, I am sitting in the dentist’s chair. Getting a cleaning and some work on an old filling. Ugh. I love the cleaning. I could do without needing more dental work.

Mouth is completely numb. I am waiting for the dentist to come back. Sigh.

I’m sorry to be so slow to get back here and post. I stay very busy with my Etsy shop and my work with vintage ephemera. It’s a serious part-time job that I hope to some day expand to full time. It’s vital to my livelihood, so it is way up there on the priority list!

Amelia loves art. We frequently catch her sitting and admiring the large cat drawing. Dead serious. It is hilarious. She also loves to watch the Kitty Bowl when it is on TV.

Just a pretty shelf in one of my work desks. Lots of this and that.

I am so happy that gardening time is here and that I can garden again, in a place I expect to be from now on. No more pulling up stakes. No more stress and anxiety. No more sadness over feeling like I need to remove myself from something that’s killing me.

Enjoy this day!



I was going to be so good and post every day. Since the funeral, however, we have been unbelievably busy. My work has been especially busy. We were also preparing to sing at a wedding, which went well, thank goodness! It was actually one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen.

Jason put together an arrangement on acoustic guitar for All if Me by John Legend. We played together and I sang. I was thankful for another experience to learn a little more.

Enjoy this day!
