So Far Today.....

As you can see I am again behind. Not like me at all. This is Nancy VanHoose's giveaway package waiting to go out to her. It was supposed to be mailed out Thursday! Yet here it sits. Why? Well I have been running since Wednesday and have just now settled down for a few minutes. I will mail it out tomorrow! Then maybe I need to take a break and get some things done that have been waiting.....
My big box of cabinet cards. Some are just frames. Perhaps it is time to put a few up for sale?
I found this "Betsy McCall" doll. Love that she is jointed like this at the knees. Her head and eyes were a mess. I was convinced I could fix her, so armed with patience, a craft knife, glue, and rubber bands I worked on her. It is tricky work as being jointed there are bands connecting her inside. Now she can open and shut her eyes, and her head is all in one piece. She has the sweetest little smile and the cutest little sandals on. I reapplied her wig, dressed her and now she sits, on my shelf with another find, a porcelain Shirley Temple doll (she is about 5" tall).
I just wanted to share a few things. I have not done much lately. Been so busy with the "wedding". We are having the dress made. Its a bit of a long story, but I will save it for my next post.

Not to worry, Deb. I am feeling so guilty about the giveaway win. I should be thanking Steve for pulling my name....what a guy! Been taking photos trying to tie up loose ends with our swaps. Can't wait to hear more wedding stories. Take care, Nance

I wish I had someone to handle all the shipping details of my business. That has to be my least favorite part.

Debra my version is where they keep praying to win the lottery and finally God yells 'Buy a ticket.'

Love Renee xoxo

Oh Deb, I opened my package of goodies yesterday! OMG! There was some great stuff in my package (all neatly arranged). I especially loved the Victorian oval images, the rusted hardware, old buttons, conchos, and I love that sheet music! The fabric is calling my name to create something KC Willis style. Those four laces in pink, white satin, beige, and pink velvet are very very special. The old photos are excellent. Thank you so much for your continual generosity. You are the best! Hugs, Nance
