Got Snow?

In my 66 years living in Vermont, I have never seen a February without snow. The winters accumulation melts around the first of April when the temperatures reach into the fifties and sugaring is well on its way. This morning I took a picture of the front of our house while walking Tucker for his morning deposit to show the lack of snow in our yard. I found a picture taken a day later in February in 2011 which was taken after a "normal" (typical for February) snow storm. To think there are actually some people that still don't believe in global warming astonishes me. Granted they say the weather this year is due to a record El Nino but why did we have a record El Nino? Global warming!

Today I Made a Doll Room in a Book! SOLD

After making a dress for my miniature Art Fabric Mills doll, I decided she should have a special place to live. Today I worked on making a doll room inside a leather book. She was so excited to move in all her antique toys when it was finished.

A Big Antique Folk Art Rag Doll

I purchased an antique  doll with a damaged composition shoulder head. I removed the shoulder head and added a cloth head which I painted and sanded for a nice antique look.
