famous Queen Holden. This lady had paper doll sales of more than 28,000,000, that she published in 1920. What talent Mrs. Holden had and what a fun life she must have lived ...with this kind of talent. And look what a cutie little 'Pat' is! I enjoyed reading your comments about when and if you had paper dolls in your life, and ...or embroidery....or cross-stitch...= )
Today, I started writing a journal...and will add collage art and 'stuff' as I go along. I found an old journal and enjoyed reviewing what I'd written. I have trouble writing long-hand, so this will be interesting, my journal of 2015.

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

I've loved reading this children's book this week! So, so much. I am now a big fan of Howard Garis. Have you read any of his books as a child or now? Amazon has at least two of his books for Kindle...free!
Speaking of Kindles', A good book is a gift that keeps on giving smiles and many relaxing hours. I so love to read!

We found these at Ollie's for $5. and what a huge blessing. I am right on schedule and everything is all laid out for me. Every day has your Old Testament reading, New Testament reading, a Psalm and a couple of paragraphs at the end from Andrew Murray in-depth comments to help one grow spiritually. I love this devotional Bible SO much.
read this last week and it is a charming story of three sisters making their way in the world on their own.....very enjoyable.
Promise Me This'.....this lady can write, let me tell you. I just read her 'Hold up the Sky' and it was hard to put down. This book is about so many things....I think I'll let you look it up on Amazon for the story line and maybe a sample. It is very lengthy and what a story from the sinking of the Titanic and much more. I'm ready for the happy ending though....
It will reach almost 40 degrees here today and so we are going out and about. This has been such an enjoyable Jan. & Feb. so far....lots of good reads and my daughter's work schedule has changed so lots of fun calls from her. Not to much snow and the wood-burner keeps us toasty warm. About to start my day, more later!

By the way, this is a European Robin, having been invented (in Legos') by Thomas Poulsom of Bristol England. He says there are over 10,000 known species of birds in the world. He says the male Robin will sing all year round to let its territory be known. It fiercely protects its food supply area. Mr. Poulsom looks forward to 'building' more birds....I hope he does, they are marvelous!
