  1. Thanks for all the nice comments. I'll tell you about my hospital stay which interfered with my being on hand for Molly's arrival. I had been feeling a bit energy deficient when I went to teach my evening classes, but didn't think an awful lot about it. On the Sunday before Molly's arrival, I began getting mega head rushes whenever I stood up. Again I didn't think much of it thinking perhaps I was just getting up too fast. That evening it was a chore to walk to the bathroom, I almost passed out, was breathing very heavily etc. My husband said we are going to the emergency room, and off we went. Once there they found my blood to be about half the counts it should be and my blood pressure was 78/28. They wound up giving me four transfusions and a colonoscopy. I'm embarrassed to tell you that I was the cause of all this aggravation. But the telling might save someone else from making the same mistake I did. Because there are so many of us--Children, grands and great grand children and my mother with Alsheimers, there is a lot of stress. I got into the habit of taking some excedrine tablets to counteract the head and neck aches that are almost a daily occurance. This helped clear my head before I would take off for work in the evenings. I didn't realize that you can easily overdo this over the counter medication, or any aspirin med. Please be careful!! I burned a hole in my duodenum which is just past the stomach. It will heal itself, but I will always need to take yet another kind of medication. I wish I had known just how dangerous aspirin products can be. Moose hugs to all of Molly's friends.
  2. Hello friends of Molly. You will be happy to note she took off for Texas this afternoon. Her days with us here in sunny California were filled from morning until night. I spent a few days in the hospital and she was waiting when I got home. (I'm afraid I may have kept her an extra day). We got in as much sightseeing as we possibly could squeeze in: Sea World, Zoo, Wild Animal Park, beach, shopping and lots of great food. We talked and laughed and stayed up way too late. She fit right in with our family of ten and I might say a really good sport. On a bit of a somber note, I might caution her future hosts that political discussions should be dealt with carefully. Last evening while I was fixing supper, the children and Molly were watching the television. The conversation as I heard from my oldest son centered on the presidential candidates and their running mates favorite foods. I believe Molly heard "Moose Stew" mentioned, and she became very quiet. We all spent the remainder of the evening trying to rouse her spirits. Do take heed! Thanks for allowing us to take part in this fun visit. Molly is a treasure! :welcome:
  3. I got a big kick out of this in that I was born in 1947 and grew up with the world revolving around dad's needs. I just finished a neat book called "Keeping the House" by Ellen Baker. It jumps back and forth between the 1950's, 1890's, and 1940's. Each chapter begins with a snippet from a popular women's magazine on how a housewife should properly keep a home. It also centers on a big old victorian mansion where much of the story takes place. A little addendum here. When I was in the 8th grade at Our Lady of the Rosary elementary school, we received a rather terse note to take home to our mothers. The general idea was that mothers picking up their children should not enter the school grounds wearing pants. (!)
  4. Very pretty, and so inviting. Whenever I think maybe I shouldn't buy something I flip to the obit B) column in the newspaper. When I see all the people younger than me in there, I think I better get shopping before it's too late!
  5. They are beautiful. What great adventures you all will have. B) :thank_you: :welcome:
  6. Happy Birthday, Moon Child! This is one you won't forget.
  7. That was very enjoyable, thanks so much!
  8. I've been searching for 1940-1950's interiors for my Glencroft. If you google 1950 kitchen and look at images, you will find hundreds of pictures of items of that era. Be sure to look back a decade as well as so many houses came with leftovers. Anybody remember the Jewel Tea salesman and the Autumn Leaf dishes? I bought a couple of those pieces on Ebay for nostalgia sake. Now I'm trying to figure out how to replicate the pattern for some dollhouse pieces.
  9. Venus Dodge has a beautiful book called "Dolls' House Needlecrafts". It has a little of everything. You can peek inside here: http://www.amazon.com/Dolls-House-Needlecr...691/ref=ed_oe_h
  10. Be careful with mothballs. It can be toxic. I put some out once and nearly did in our parrot! :lol:
  11. That totally reeks. I used to do porcelain dolls and sell them occasionally, but really didn't like parting with them for one, and two the lack of respect from the buyer put me off completely.
  12. Hi Wolfie, I get the same stabbing pain in my joint just below the thumb. One day I was afraid I wouldn't be able to hold onto my baby granddaughter. Exedrin helps sometimes. Also heat gives me some relief. When I use my dremel I rest my upper wrist on the warm part and it feels really good. My mother used to run very hot water on her hands. Doc says arthritis.
  13. I love it. Who makes this particular house, I don't think I've seen it before? You did an incredible job. Your beautiful work makes me sigh.
  14. Thank you! I would never have thought of using glue. This is a tutorial I willl use.
  15. There is one on Craigslist for $40 http://maine.craigslist.org/clt/731235609.html And the miniature pedlar has one for $126 with free shipping. These might be old ads. http://www.peddlerpusher.net/product_info....oducts_id/37673
