No minis but...

...I have been busy. The tomato sauce and the two jars of relish with red peppers are from last summer but the rest is this year's work so far. I've got more green beans just coming into maturity, more cucumbers and zucchini for pickles and relish, beets, and tomatoes for sauce and salsa all coming up. It's a very satisfying feeling to fill the pantry with the results of my hard work. :) Unfortunately, that leaves less time for minis but I will get back to them in the fall if not sooner.

I was finally able to get Fabiola's prize posted today, too. I'm so sorry for the delay.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

A few more details

Looks like Baily's just back from the grocery store. I added a few details to each of the dolls today. Baily now has silver hoop earrings, 2 silver bangle bracelets and a diamond engagement ring. Josh has a new watch and his jersey is now an Indianapolis Colts shirt with a horse shoe on the front and Peyton Manning's number on the back.
Rocky got a new bed today, too. I just cut down a store bought basket (after gluing around the edges so the basket wouldn't fall apart.) I used pieces of the handle I removed to trim the cut edges.

I've finally got something to share!

Please meet Baily and Josh - they live in the Willowcrest.
Here they are enjoying some cuddle time while looking through their wedding album.

I think my dolls are still improving. These two have smaller heads, hands and feet than some of my past ones do. I pulled George out of the boarding house so I'd have a store bought doll to compare with. Baily's hair gave me fits, though. She's on her third head of hair, lol. I think I'm finally satisfied. She has a contemporary graduated bob.

Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway. You'll find the rules and prize here. The drawing will be one week from tomorrow on July 15. Sign up at the link above if you've been a follower from June 22 or before. I love reading about your favorites. :)

Happy Independence Day to my fellow USA bloggers!

Harry and Mary have the grandkids for the weekend so they're having a big cookout. Gregory is playing fetch with Henry, the dog. Brittani won't put her mp3 player away but they are still having fun, lol. Harry has burgers and ribs on the grill and plenty of cold beer. Mary's made potato salad, a tossed salad and a yummy cherry pie. Maybe I'll join them. ;)

Have a great weekend!
