Leaving for SanDiego/San Jose



Off to California tomorrow afternoon...
Stopping at the Gowesty place on the coast to look at westfalia's~
I've always wanted something like a camper to travel in... and I hope this is the year I'll find something.
I've also looked into tear drop trailers.
Some day I may want to camp in your front yard *wink*

I'm going to just add photo's here in this post... I fell in the shower the last day of the show and bruised my tail bone so I'm on "drugs" and can't sit too long... so here goes NIADA/Chicago/ODACA doll show.

First Day At NIADA there is a show of all the members that came and new members...
I'm so sorry I didn't get all their names.

I think this was my favorite doll~
Same artist....
Again same artist and new NIADA memeber.
I know this is Marlanine..... who I love.
Another wonderful Danish artist ~Henne~
Ankies doll

Pinch Me....

Ok don't pinch me....
Guess what I got for my Birthday (in June) that I didn't know I was going to get... A trip to Chicago to go to NIADA http://www.niada.org! WOw! I've been to NIADA once before when it was in Las Vegas.
It's quite an amazing adventure, meeting and seeing old friends. I hope I'll do more of the same. I'm NOT familiar with Chicago... but hope the adventurer will get the better of me...
I think I'll take a couple dolls....
  Bella for sure as she is my traveling doll.
Possibly this character...
I'm pretty excited!
