Well, bother! If I had $80 Wednesday would be mine! I'm going to put this up on facebook and see if we can't create some interest.

So interesting to see dolls of this sort, to break the cliche of good looking angel-like dolls. What about morticia doll? I like her subdued looks.

Have a good Theresa.


Blessings,

Aida

GOOD MORNING MY FRIEND! Oh, that Wednesday Adams doll is particularly lovely! I'm so glad to see your comment! Have you been looking out at the moon? The fullness and clarity of it at this time of year is enchanting and all I can do is praise God for the beauty. I chased the moon last night as it began to appear around dinner time, and now it's high in the sky. Celebrate no matter what time of year, right?

Be well my friend and I hope all is well. Anita
