WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 220
Let's go to Spain! This lovely Spanish dancing lady was in the last auction lot, same lot as last weeks doll.
The label says: Graut (maybe) Espana, Sacramento.
She joins the whole family of dancing dolls.
I haven't been able to find anything about the company. I keep getting auto-corrected to "grout". Thanks, a lot.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER HURRICANE
We're far enough inland not too get much from this one. My friends and family that live in Florida are reporting in via Facebook. So far it seems most are OK. Haiti is a different matter. That country can't seem to ever get a break. If you're so inclined, there's a link to charities on the CNN website.
On a different note: this plant went crazy with the blooms.
This plant has never had so many blooms before. I think it's called a Night Blooming Ceres. I got it as a "pass a long" plant from a woman I worked with.
The hurricane isn't over, it's making it's way up the East side of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Stay save everyone that lives in the path. And lets hope that it doesn't hook back around.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 219
Another auction happened and another lot of dolls were won. 5 tiny dolls for $5.
Look at the detail on this tiny doll. Beads, trim and lace.
Here she is with the rest of her sisters. Wouldn't you know it, after I took this photo and tidy upped* the cabinet, I found another sister hiding in the back. I was too lazy that day to pull the whole family out and do another photo.
* "tidy up" is from The Producers. The Swedish secretary cleans up the office by painting everything white. In the costume shop it's a running joke when I tell the students to clean up the shop. They all say "Tidy up!"
