I ran across this picture of me with a doll I made a long time ago. I always have grand ideas to make the doll 'authentic' and do really wonderful clothing and accessories. In my mind I am Tasha Tudor, you know! In reality I am one lazy seamstress. But this doll turned out neat and I gave her to my cousin.
The doll had a real, life cameo pin from a set of earrings that had lost it's mate!
Yesterday while talking to my Mom on the phone, my phone battery went DAID! Daid as a Doornail! And I realized that particular cordless phone is about 5 years old and has it's original battery. So I thought I should just check out all the other battery type things like flashlights, lanterns and phones that might need some replacements. The main thing I discovered was my camping lantern was completely gone.
The next thing I discovered is that the battery for that costs $11.99 that's US dollars and too darn much! The rest of the stuff needing batteries will have to wait until after payday! As will my high-falutin' plans to buy enough fabric to make aprons for my entire family for Christmas. Sigh.
