SATURDAY SPARKS…

Welcome to another Saturday Sparks:  Playing around with my iPhone and PicMonkey to create this version of my Madeline Hatter doll, set on my Coca Cola dining table.

Do you like creating blog headers using items (or dolls) around the house?

Earlier today I watched the Hallmark Murders & Mystery Channel.  I do enjoy the shows on that channel, especially the Mystery 101 and the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries.  Then I set my DVR to record some later shows.

I really should be reading right now, but for some reason, I am taking a break from my Kindle.

I did write my Weekly Updates post, however; check it out!

What do you enjoy doing on a lazy Saturday?

OBSESSING ABOUT DOLLS…

My doll obsession began many years ago when I started ordering some lovely porcelain ones for my house in the foothills.  I went a little bit overboard, but brought most of them to my condo in 2007.  I added more to the collection.

Then I stashed a few of them away in bins in my garage…and most of them did not come with me to the residential senior living place in 2019.  While there, however, I started trying to find a doll I really missed…and the mini-versions of that doll (above) became stand-ins for the larger Madeline doll (below).

While searching for this doll, I started collecting “soft dolls” that took up less space.  Paisley and Pippa, below, launched that collection:

Then Payton was added:

Finally I found my Original Big Madeline! Happily, she sits atop one of my bookshelves

That’s it for now!  Not that I won’t start another collection, however, since my new apartment has more space.  Do you obsess about (or collect) things, other than books?
