Cruise / things from trip

Happy Pink 
Saturday









 I'm back from my cruise
It was wonderful 
So nice and warm
We left from New Orleans
We flew in Saturday and left Sunday
for the ship
Went to Bourbon Street 
That was something.
Saw it will not go back.
When we got back went to French Market 
Would go back there again.
Loved all the art,
The Voo Doo was fun
Had to have a couple of them 




My Pink Saturday 
One of the events on the cruise
Food carving .Maybe try sometime

The beautiful Ocean at Cozumel I love to look at the sea
Not so much want to go in
Its so big
The Ship
Norwegian Dawn
More beach
Things I bought 
In many stores they would give small charms if you would go in the shop
Good way to get you in.
There is still a few more things ,I could not live with out
Great fun

The worry dolls
Cigar boxes
I really like the day of the dead
Going to use them in a craft
Mahogany wood bowl
My Voo Doo doll
Been giving some away.

Again it was wonderful



Glad I'm home 
Hope you leave a comment

Doll, Christmas card

Merry Christmas

Happy Pink Christmas
I paint a Christmas card every year since 9-11
This is my card this year.
It is a photo from my friends home.
Love the pink chair sitting ,it was a pink too





This is from my friends ranch in western North Dakota
This is what most of North Dakota looks like now
We have allot of snow and very cold this year -15
Looks like a painting
 Some of steps in our back yard
 The back yard shed


At the top of then steps
Out the inclosed deck 
I took threw the screen door
We got home a day before it came



 I collect Annette Himsted dolls,
Since 2000 Annette does not design any more of  these doll.
There is collectors that have there dolls in designers outfits.
They are amazing looking.
 Allot from Germany that is where Annette is from
I play with them by changing clothes,sew and put them in different display.
When my granddaughter was studying  in Spain and she traveled she would get tee shirts for them 
When the clerk would ask who they where for (she was embarrassed)  said her cousin , 
 not her grandma's dolls
That year I went around Minot to find a sitting for each tee shirt
Had a calendar made,it was cute
They are the size of a three year old
 They wear a size 18 months to 24 months.
If you need to I pin it to fit.
It is so nice ,they stay clean and in place.

 This room is our family room.
 Where some of the doll are staying  this year.


I hope you follow me I have lost all my people that followed me .
I had over 300 And I lost my blog could not find it so started over.
I'm going to have a give away in the first of the year . 
It will be a nice giveaway,Not sure when I will start ,so keep coming back
