WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 127
Hmm, not really a doll, but tis the season
A snowman made for me by a student who's last name is Holladay. Styrofoam balls, a button nose, wooden bead hat, hat brim is the label off a spool of thread, and dress pin arms. Merry Christmas from 2011.
It's been raining here for 3 days, somewhere around 5". Guess I should be happy it's not snowing (and it's 71!)
Merry Christmas from South Georgia, USA.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 126
Let's go to the islands! Don't know where Treasure Bay is , but who cares?
She's holding a satin flower, which is a strange thing to hold. Don't know if it was original or added on. It's like she's saying "Come to the islands, I have a present for you"

RIP PECAN TREE
We had to get the old pecan tree removed from the backyard. It was only a matter of time before part of it fell on the house.
So, the tree had to go. I'm not sure how old it was, but the house was built in the 1920's and it many have been there "forever". The tree removers said that part of it was rotten and only a matter of time before the really big part fell down.
On the bright side, the yard will be a lot sunnier now. We enjoyed having such a beautiful tree in the yard. Pecans did happen, but nothing last for ever.
Speaking of "trees", all 3 Christmas trees have been put up and I'm in a better mood. Yeah.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 125
This week we have a visitor. Or a guest doll. When I was on vacation last month, I took photos of my sister-in-laws doll collection. She doesn't have many, but some of them are strange.
Speaking of vacation, I haven't been doing much since I've been back. Life is kind of boring right now. I have pulled all the Christmas junk out and started putting it up. Perhaps that will put me in a better mood. Till next time.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 124
That was a quick week. If you did Thanksgiving, I hope it was a wonderful day. Did you shop on Black Friday? It looks like this weeks doll is so over that.
About Black Friday, I stayed home and read a second hand copy of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows. I don't like being told that I should go shopping as my patriotic duty to boost the income of Wal-Mart and other large corporations. I'll shut up now and wish everyone a happy holiday season, what ever holiday you celebrate.

THE ART OF VACATION
Wandering around The Mission in San Francisco I was struck by how pretty it is. No dull gray city stuff here. The Mission is named after Mission Delores, which was founded in 1776 and is the oldest building in SF. Mission Delores in featured in the Hitchcock movie Vertigo (one of my favorite) The area was been the home to Hispanic people for forever. It's easy to get to on BART (19th and 24th street stations). Go, if you ever visit SF.
There's art everywhere.....
In a short ally off of 24th street are these wonderful murals.
left side and right side
Do you look up when walking?
The day after my birthday, I got kidnapped and taken to the Oakland Museum . It was the tail end of the annual Day of the Dead instillation. It's been happening for years.
The museum has stickers that are a pointing finger that says "OK" which means you can touch whatever the finger is pointing at.
as you can see the two Child Brides sat in it. I swear we did not share notes on dressing alike.
Hope you enjoyed my vacation photos. Tomorrow is the return of Weird Doll Wednesday.
