Welcome to the first Saturday of 2016, in which I am eager to share tidbits and obsessions. The doll shown above is Madeline Hatter, a part of the Alice in Wonderland collection.
I have several dolls and collectibles from this story…but most of my others are in garage bins. I had done a major sweep through my home this past year, not purging, but gathering them up until a time when I might spotlight them again.
Madeline is a doll I got from Amazon Vine. I usually add books from that site, but what fun it was to get something different. And how could I be a hoarder if I didn’t buy it? LOL
Before I spotlighted the doll, I put away all of my Christmas decorations. I knew that my “less is more” vow this year would come in handy! It took about five minutes to stash everything in the bins.
After collecting this doll from my mailbox, I had lunch at a neighborhood bar & grill, using one of the gift cards my three LA grandkids sent me. They are all so grown-up now!
While I enjoyed my lunch, I continued reading The Black Widow, by Wendy Corsi Staub. There is a creep factor going on in this story, which alternates between narrators.
Now I’m going to watch some movies…and perhaps I’ll take a nap. What does your First Weekend of 2016 look like?
