'Yourself.' :)


Tender spring flower in Boone, NC (as a consolation for those of us longing...for spring.) :)




The only person who can help 'yourself' have a life full of meaning, is 'yourself.'




Some spring blooms in Wisconsin (last year.)

PROJECT!

Finished! Antique wedding kewpie (porcelain) dolls for Marge P.


I have been working on this project for a bit! 
These are antique porcelain kewpie wedding cake topper dolls 
that have been restored. The shiny satin fabric is from 
my great Aunt Helen's wedding dress! 

Below is a 'before' photo!

The token must go...



So, I contend that there a but a few man-made thing-stuff items that are worthy of a photo. But here is one of them.






                                           (A 1964 red-box Parker Brothers Real Estate Trading Game Equipment; "Monopoly.") 





I recently bought a complete board game and have been waiting to show you this...
because they are doing away with a token.


                                                                                                                                       Big box, big board.


***
Yes, they have officially 'voted' to do away with one of the token pieces....
 :( = much sadness. 

Below is the link to an article.
 Click on it to find out which one,
but do tell me your...
 (1) best guess...and
 (2) your personal token favorite, too. 
And...(3) if you could 'invent' a new token,
 what would it be??

***








P.S.
I intend to buy as many of them...as I can.
(You've been warned.)

Another of my husband's culinary adventures: Jade noodles (or Christmas Pasta) 
made with spinach, leek, scallions, chives and basil...
