Back Home

Can you guess where I have been all week? Yep, that's right London. Went with my gal pal Melissa. NO Kids NO Husbands. We had a blast. Loads of shopping, sightseeing, eating and laughs.
5 days however is not near enough time to see and do everything in a city that is hundreds of years old. I really need to go back.
The weather wasn't even that bad. Slight drizzle one day. Didn't even have to use my umbrella.
No matter how much fun you have,it is always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed. Oh did it ever feel good last night after a 9 hour flight.
That would be me in a Covent Gardens phone booth
Horse guards at Buckingham Palace

Market on Portabello Street.
Love red doors. This one is in Notting Hill
The sign on this door at the Tower of London cracked me up.
Big Ben. Absolutely beautiful.

Art Doll

I'm not much of a doll person. I like them,but I don't really have dolls sitting around. But there is something about Joanne's art dolls that really grab me. When I saw she was teaching an online class for her art dolls. I knew I had to give it a try.
The online class is still going on. I however, couldn't wait for the last few videos and went ahead and finished mine up. I have done enough assemblage to figure out how to attach everything. I think maybe I was a guy in a past life. I have a tendency to just do something and them go back and read the directions.....lol
I'm rather happy with the way she turned out. The little bird cage with the red bird was an earring of my mothers.
I hope Joanne gives her thumbs up. Click on each pic to enlarge.
The flowers on her face I painted on. I don't know how many I tried on paper and they just weren't looking right. Finally, I just said the heck with it and painted them on her face. I think I was putting to much thought into them.
