The Bella Blue Rescue

I love purchasing dolls at yard sales that no one else wants. I found Bella Blue in a box filled with miscellaneous items.Bella was on the very bottom covered and alone. She was dusty,dirty and in need of a hair cut. After a cold water dip in the gentle cycle, I gathered my tools (lint roller & scissors) and went to work.

 The tools: lint brush and scissors

 I "borrowed" a bow from Julia's collection .....

Property Manager?

Playing Property Manager .......
I was asked to take pictures,post an ad,  submit background checks and process paper work for potential renters. I have some knowledge by having renters stay in my  own home. This however is a whole different gig. With a room for rent, I take a few pics  a phone interview and background check. This feels different,the decorator in me wants color,furniture, fancy curtains to intice my renter. I should just open up a bed and breakfast and do just that!
