I was amazed to see that over 44,000 people commented or shared a picture I had taken in my attic on someone else's blog, but on my own blog it was pretty much ignored.

New Friends

A lovely new art doll by Mary Reed joined the family this weekend.  She is on the far left with the adorable hat and darling necklace.  You can visit Mary's Etsy shop at: 

Mary's creation Meryl made the trip across country from California where she basked in sunny 60 degree temperatures and arrived in Minnesota where there was a brisk -30 windchill, but Mary had made her a sweet jacket to protect her well.  It was quite an adventure rescuing her from the post office back rooms where she languished a bit waiting a signature confirmation, luckily with no ill effects.

Check back to see her accoutrements.  They are unique and quite exquisite!
