Oh I so love being a Grandma! Hazel Joy & my daughter Kelly came over for our weekly 'girls day' yesterday. Thursdays have been our 'girls day' since little one was born. Hazel is really testing the waters lately as you can see-if she does not like something-you get the face! She likes to read you stories so her duck book its blah blah DUCK blah blah blah quack quack! I have to laugh cuz Kel may have her hands full. When Kelly REALLY wants something done or corrected..... Hazie's new thing to Kelly is "Are you serious??????" The joys of motherhood!
Boy after a long winter & my crazy 4 months of IVs this 'Babe' is ready for a nice getaway. Hubby & I need to have some play time & for 3+ days I will have my butt stuck to a stool by a slot machine I can assure you! There's a small town up there in Baraboo Wisconsin that has some very cool small stores that you find really amazing artwork in. Truly avant garde. So that will be a must! The warm weather hopefully will be here soon so we an all go out & play. Hugs to all-I hope you all are doing beautifully!

To those who voted thank you so much. Again this came as quite a pleasant surprise as I shut down on Ebay for 7+ months this year and only did Etsy. I started on Ebay with the 'gals' & after selling 1100 my heart sings to think that I may have been gone but not forgotten!
Last year there were about 8 different dolls categories with 7-8 artists in each category. I won 2nd place in Doll Assemblage. This year only one Doll Category: 3D dolls & only 7 artists in all of Ebay. I believe we need to place in the top 3 for an award so I guess I am on a ride! The voting dates will be February 21-28 - I'll keep you posted!
To all that have or will be voting........hugs, love and thanks you dear friends.

I don't know about all of you 'buds' out there but this 'Babe' has about had it with the cold weather. I think it is time to but peat pots so I can pretend it is planting time soon. After planting oh maybe 85-100 perennials around our townhouse as you get older you find such great pleasure come spring waiting to see what rears it's little head!
Last year it was a beauty-this year hopefully even more color and variety. Martha looks forward to our nightly 'plant walk' where we sit and have few Bloody Marys or shots before dinner. Which is usually done on the grill. Ahhhhhhhh.........it was time for a "Got Spring Fever!" Babe. Hope you are all well & beautiful! Hugs,
