Choosing a border pic - yikes

Yikes - I have a new found respect for people who can work graphics successfully or even do basic MW paint - after hours with all these attempts - I went with a very basic Drearydom Larks - whew - Thank you, Blue for showing how to work paint!!!!

Mothers and children - in the doll world by Nikki

Nikki - A DCF (doll collector friend) from CAAD must be a doll whisperer - or perhaps the dolls whisper to her. Whatever the source or the connection, Nikki does the most amazing mother/child doll couplings!!! From the re-painting to re-dressing to re-naming her work is flawless! Take a peek.

Sssss~snake. Please don't tell me how wonderful they are, that they are a part of nature, that rats and spiders are worse, etc. etc.. Thunder, electricity and snakes are my top three fears. When thunder announced the rains today I ran to close the kitchen window only to find a snake looking right at me - I did scream ...but vocalized nothing. Here he is getting away. ( He has since been rescued and removed to Frear Hill. )
