Where did January go?

This month is flying.  Well, hubby is retired, he had a nice retirement party at work, over 160 people showed up.  He sure is going to miss everyone.
 His cake was in the shape of a book and very yummy too!
 I have been working on more dolls, finished up my last two Valentines and started on St.  Paddy's day
 Some mini St. Paddy's day angel tucks

 We visited with my hubby's brother and wife last weekend, they took us to 2nd   Charles, a used Books-a-Million store, I think there are only two so far in the US, we loved the sign made of books.
 We visited Washington-near Augusta, GA. a great little historic town
 They had an empty shop for rent, would love to be able to have a little bookstore/craft store there
 Finished up with some Panera cinnamon rolls
 I made some Hello Kitty Annies
 Since joining facebook, I have meet a lot of great people.  This is Elaine of MythreeAngelsprim and her grandson, they had been in Orlando and stopped by where I work, to meet me.  She lives in South Carolina.  I really enjoyed meeting her and her grandson.
I wish someone would send some of their cold weather down here, the pollen is so bad right now.  Everything is budding out, it thinks it is spring--but if we do get a cold spell, then we'll have another pollen season.  So tired of sneezing and sinus headaches!
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend, happy crafting!

    Always love your dolls. I, too, would love to have a small book store where I could decorate with and offer small things for sale--lots of comfy chairs and a sofa and.of course, a snack bar with biscotti and tea sandwiches; with great coffee, variety of teas and some cocoa. *sigh* It is such fun to dream....
