This week seems to have gone by quicker than usual. Guess that's because so many things have happened this week - we exposed our house to whomever drives or walks past, I got a job, we took a short trip in to Winnipeg, I had my 10th year post-cancer and mastectomy mammogram, I rescued Beauty, I got to see and visit with my very much missed elderly former neighbour, and I got to spend precious time with our son... all in four days.
No wonder the week flew by!
I would really love to be able to be outside working, but it has turned chilly once again, so instead I will work upstairs.
I am pretty excited about something totally different however. I recently had 30 some vintage baby dresses to sell. I posted them on one of the Face Book doll sites I belong to, as they are suitable for larger dolls, and a friend of mine on the site said she wanted them all. That was just before Molly left us, and while I was still painting anything I could find.
I finally connected with my friend again, and we discussed the dresses I am to send her, and she had the best idea -
How about we do an exchange! We were talking about our Chatty Cathy's she has over a 100, and I have 8, so she asked it I would consider and exchange, a good condition, brown eyed brunette Chatty Cathy and some Chatty dresses for the 33 dresses I am sending her.
Would I consider? I leaped...
I haven't had a new Chatty Cathy in a few years, and just the thought of acquiring another, makes my heart pitter-patter... I don't have a brown-eyed doll - they are not all that common, so I am excited to get her. I can see a spa day coming up - and while I am at it, perhaps a spa day for some of the other Chatty's that sit not too far away from me in my studio.
I wasn't expecting this - so it is a wonderful surprise.
In the meantime, I will try to continue to clean up some of the mug rug projects that I have started - OH and the two I gave away as gifts this weeks, were very much loved.
So what a week, it's been - I am kind of looking forward to a quiet weekend. Maybe we will be really lucky and get to have a complete weekend without snow - now wouldn't that be ideal!
Talk to you next week -
