Hot Peppers and Criminal

Good morning,
We're home again today and enjoying it very much!

We've picked and put up so many peppers I may never be able to touch my eyes again!

And it's Pink Saturday!

Wilma and I have finished cleaning house so we decided to play with some of our new eBay toys.

Love our new sewing machine!

Tiny Tears Doll dresses.

Chatty Cathy PJ's.

Wilma loves Pink. She says she needs a new polka-dot dress..

We may have a tea party later..

Love the sweet hanger.

My 1930's Madame Alexander baby hasn't arrived yet. She's on the way.

Wilma wants me to read her a bedtime story.
She doesn't know it yet, but she's getting a bubble bath before she gets tucked in tonight...

Who was it that said "It's never too late to have a good childhood"?

Sweet little boys in uniform.

Have you read this yet?
What are you waiting for, it's simply the best book of the year!

I hope your weekend is as peaceful as a child's.

Hugs from me and Ms. Wilma

Thanks for recommending Criminal. I just (right now) bought the kindle sounds like a good one! I'm too tired and hot now to do anything but read a good book. =D

Will look this one up for sure - I'll be in the market for a new book very shortly. I always enjoy Pink Saturday at your place - oh sooo adorable :) Hope Wilma enjoys her bubble bath!

You love dolls and sweet things just like I do! I don't shop on Ebay...but I like to look on Etsy. The little clothes sure are cute and the doll is exquisite! I know I would love this book, too...I'll see if my library has it! Hugs!

PS My library doesn't have this book yet but it has some others by this author. Do you think some of her other's would be good, too?

I like this post.

The book illustrations are lovely, so nostalgic. I sometimes think we appreciate these childhood toys more as adults.
The chilli peppers look good, I would put chillies in everything, but I don't think my family would appreciate them quite so much!
How was Wilma's bath time?

Love your blog. Those peppers look yummy. Haven't read much lately other than doll books and working on lots of dolls and supplies. I'm getting ready to go to Austin and teach at ADAA Conference the end of the month.
Your Blog Is Wonderful.

Those peppers look wonderful and I spy some tomatoes in that pretty basket!
Just wondering...were you ever called "Chatty Cathy" when you were a little girl? You know that I was!!! Keep cool, just eat some cold watermelon!

All's very lovely, from the peppers to the original Midge and Tammy booklets! I have not read anything by Karin Slaughter yet, I think. Are you going to post a book review?

Hello Dorothy,
I love your blog! I especially love the Tiny Tears dress. As a newly retired librarian, I am looking forward to following your blog. Have a great week ahead!

Those are all very cute things.

OMG, my peppers are killing me. Hottest jalepenos I've ever grown.

I weanted to tell you that I roast and peel bushels of chile peppers every fall. A good way to keep your hand from burning is to rub them down with cooking oil before you start. It does help. Everything looks wonderful. I wish I had that basket of peppers right now! Yummy!
