I went down to the studio yesterday and worked a bit. Finished up a few repair projects that I had started before we left for Colorado. One is a surprise for this gentleman's Mom. She's 86 and in a retirement home. She had this doll that needed some major help, all broken apart. I did all the gluing work before we left on our trip. That aloud everything to sit up before I put her back together. Finished up a couple of other repairs too and then put a little Unmarked French together. She turned out so pretty. I usually finish these girls off with darker hair, but I was in one of my moods to try something different. I grabbed a beautiful light blond, mohair wig from Bravot. She looks beautiful...at least her kiln Mom thinks so. She is not yet listed in my online store, but will get to that soon. Right now I'm enjoying looking at her.

2012 is coming to a close. Hard to believe how fast the year went by.....they seem to do that the older I get. We just got back from Colorado the other day. We spent Christmas with brother Don. He lives in the mountains outside of Denver. Jerry's daughter, Missy stopped by Sunday. She's an airline attendant and had the day off. The weather was perfect. Snowed when it was 'supposed' to and didn't when we had to drive. Christmas Eve Night the snow started so we woke up to a quiet Christmas morning in Colorado the snow.
Our trip back home was uneventful. The weather was clear, but cold...road were in great shape...dry. We arrived back home on the 26th. Cat was very happy to see us. Since we came back home, he stays right by Jerry most of the time. Rose went with us....Rose is my Cavalier King Charles. I don't think she was very happy with travelling this time. She had a lot of anxiety. She was so worried we were going to leave her. Poor girl, I felt really badly for her. So we took her wherever we went. She was happier being left in the car than being left at Don's.
