After much anticipation on my part the second of my photo prints has arrived home. It's fantabulous.

Thank you again Becky for the gift of your wonderful creations. The little doll in this image reminds me so of ones that my Nana used to crochet dresses for when I was little. Even with painful arthritic joints she would create the most intricate, delicate garments for those tiny toys, and I'd play with them for hours in the dolls house my Papa had made as they were just the right size. Barbies were far too big. I still have the dolls house, sitting in storage, and the time has come for it to be brought out and restored, before my girls get too big to want to play with it. 

This is the current bedside read. I've had been experiencing insomnia over the last month, sleepless torture, and this has cured me. The act of reading before sleeping is a wonderful antidote to stress. Actually purchased for the man but apart from a brief flick through he's never read it. I should have known as the paper (or app on ipad now), golfing magazines and manuals that come with his much loved gadgets are his preferred reads. It's a great book and gives insights into how certain images came about. Some of them are such iconic images that transport me back to the days before gadgets, and seven days a week shopping. My next read is going to have to be something I don't have to concentrate so much on; any suggestions for a good novel?

And lastly introducing a small friend that is about to embark on a very big journey. I wish I could take photos like Becky and Marti.

Have a great weekend
