My birthday month, January, was full of challenges, among them the end of my old computer system. I am working now to set up one a little differently and have found my way back to my blog today. Texas is emerging from a dramatic three-day ice storm which has left many without power or heat still. My own home was touched only lightly because I had only light rain to freeze, but most of central Texas looked like this:
Heavy ice will take a while to melt, but as for my yard, today I am thawed and have stepped outside a few minutes in shining sunlight.
Dolls are a happy counterpoint to challenges, and I have added to the doll family here, two late 19th century cloth dolls with oil painted faces. Homemade dolls like this have a charm and personality from being one of a kind, made one at a time.
Another doll, "Angel", has come to me from the collection of Dixie Redmond.
Thoughts and prayers for those friends in northern states facing an onslaught of deep cold. e
