Fairytale characters are the centerpiece of my home, or they were. Some of them, like all those in the photo above are now residing in bins in the garage. I have a parade of pieces on my mantle (below), and they mimic some of the characters above, plus more.
Here are some close-ups:
A few months ago, when I was purging my bookshelves, I also “binned” a few of my dolls and bears. But I didn’t label the bins…sadly.
I searched through my bins, but in order to find the dolls, etc., a more extensive quest is required. One with helpers, like my granddaughter Fiona. She’s usually up for something like this.
Then I thought I would search my photos, but I have a LOT of them. I even searched my archives here. Finally, last night I realized that my photo albums, those with photos that are not yet on the computer, might be a likely place….and I found the picture that is now gracing the top of this blog.
I would still like to find the REAL Alice in Wonderland doll, but that is a journey for another day.
What journeys or searches do you obsess about? Or do you avoid the stress of obsessions?
