I finally got my journal out this morningafter a two month hiatus. The fruit stickers on my window sill were thecatalyst. I was starting to put them on the horizontal surface. I figured I would have a two page spread, but it wasn't quite full. I found one on my monitor and lots more that my daughter-in-law had saved for me on baggies. They filled the pages nicely. It feels good to be journaling again.

It was so nice to wake up this morning with the whole house relatively clean, lots of leftovers and nowhere to go. I could get used to retirement I think.


Last week there was a sale on Tiny Betsy dolls by Tonner. I've been wanting one since they first came out, but could never make up my mind which one. I liked this one which was dressed in a Mondrian dress, because I thought she looked like me in first grade, but I wouldn't pay what they were wanting for her. Well, at half price it didn't take long to have my order in. Isn't she a cutie?

Love how you save your collection by the window and then put it to use - talk about creative and healthy journal spread!

Nice to see you back to posting again. I have kept my journal on the coffee table and add to it when the inspiration strikes. Lately it seems to be lists. I have a Betsy McCall doll from the 50s. She is the one I used to play with, but I did not know about the smaller ones.

Thanks!

Paula, maybe I should put mine on the coffee table. It doesn't seem to be getting much action lately.
