Friday and Boy am I going to have a Wash Day!

Happy Friday, everyone!  So happy that another week is almost over and the weekend is almost here.  I live for my weekends.  I know that is a stupid thing to do, but it has become how I get from Monday to Friday... sadly.

But today is a new day, and I am happy because I did go and pick up my two dolls (plus 4 more) and four more boxes of doll clothes last evening from my doll friend.

Yes I did say (plus 4 more).  She had a box of Horsman dolls and told me to take what I wanted - so I took 4 very small ones to add to my Horsman collection.

I couldn't wait to get home and open the boxes of clothes - so off we went home, I made some tea and sat for the whole evening going through hundreds upon hundreds of doll clothes of every size and description, and age.  What a find, and what a pile of laundry I am going to have to do tonight... Then days and days of ironing to get these precious vintage clothes ready for my shop, or ready for my dolls, or ready for my friends. 

I have done a first sort - size and age, that sort of thing, but after I wash them I will do a more thorough sort and catalogue each item.  That will take a considerable amount of time, but I feel it is going to be the only way I will be able to keep track of this huge inventory.

Hubby and I are planning on getting out tomorrow to the Cottage Country show, so that will be a fun day.  Our beautiful warm, if not very windy weather has held on all week, but rain is coming for Sunday and early next week, so that will force me to stay indoors and get some work done.

Have a great weekend everyone... talk to you next week.
