OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was the strangest sight that greeted me when I answered the door. There a body and head sat, the head grinning up at me with irrepressible dimples. That wasn’t such an odd thing; I’ve of course seen unstrung dolls before. What was strange that her arms and legs were happily dancing about, independent of the body of their owner, in what could only be called a jig…

Here she is, all apart. I got her limbs to sit still for just a moment…

You may or may not know this, but 3 is my lucky number. And 33 is luckier still! And as luck would have it, the very next O.L.D. (Once-Loved Doll) to arrive at my doorstep was named Lucky Charm! And she’s number 33! And she’s also number 3 in the “Ann” series! And St. Patrick’s day is coming up! I think you can see where I’m going here…

The fact that the onesie she arrived in was a pale green sealed the deal. Irish it is! So I looked for inspiration…

Lucky4And Lucky’s outfit was born!

Lucky’s outfit is a little simpler than most. I’ve been hard at work finishing the book. Believe it or not, I’ve written two more chapters! There’s one last element needed, and it’s a doozy. I hope to finish it this week. Wish me luck! (see what I did there? With the “luck” and the “Lucky”? I sense a THEME.)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMay your home be bright with cheer,
May your cares all disappear,
May contentment come your way,
And may laughter fill your day.

(Brun)Hilda, who constantly sings, was adopted by Michelle E. of Colorado! I think Michelle’s gonna need a bigger house. And earplugs. And patience. I confess, I’m going to miss Hilda a teensy bit more than most. It turns out, you get a little used to all that singing.

And with that, I leave you! Happy Wednesday, you’re my favorite!
