Random Happy New Year Photos

I spent the day putting away Christmas decorations--it's time to do the annual Doll Inventory, and I need to clear off a flat space to set it up. I am sure Stripey will find a way to sit in the middle of whatever spot I clear--it's part of the annual tradition. Here's a photo from last week, when it was cold and I forgot a bottle of lavender cleaner out on the porch:

Photos from our mall visit on the Friday before Christmas--Santa getting last-minute requests:

Gifts for the golfer who has everything (these things are huge, and expensive--at least you could use the silver one for an end table...)


And finally, after two years and many near-death experiences, my tiny orchid is blooming!:


So Happy New Year, and may 2017 be better than 2016!

    1. Thank you! We had a small Christmas since everyone had things to do; we just had a small tree, too. That makes it easy to put everything away! I hope you had a wonderful holiday, it looks like you are enjoying school, too!

    1. I'm just glad it's still alive :D The poor thing gets too cold and too dry to really grow well, but it's doing it's best! Happy New Year to you too!

  3. You get the best photos of Stripey. So sharp and clear. Last night, I had TV on and was sorting thru male doll clothing and shoes. I found I had two pairs of some shoes. This is what happens when you are so unorganized that you can neither find or remember that you already have that pair of shoes. I no longer have male dolls that will fit SID shorter sleeve clothes and have extra EID & SID shoes. Some things from Iplehouse and Freedom Teller so if interested let me know. I will post photos on my flickr.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    1. Happy New Year back! Good thoughts for Eric! I'm sure *I* have more than one pair of the same shoes, because if you have two guys and the shoes are on sale, they all come home! I will check your Flickr but you have made me well-supplied with elegant boy clothing! I just need to find a way to keep them organized :D
      Stripey is easy to photograph because she doesn't move fast...unless there is a wig on the floor!
