End of 2012

Well, the year is finally coming to a close and 2013 is around the corner waiting for us with open arms.  It has been a most wonderful, exciting year.  I have had the good luck to travel, meet new people and especially new doll people, get wonderful new dolls and thoroughly enjoy myself this year.  Every year it seems as though the days fly by, and this year was no exception, but still, 2012 managed to be a great year.  There is a saying that I heard once and that I like to repeat around this time as we make a toast - May your best day this year, be your worst day next year.  I have my family, my health, (with a few twinges in my back), a wonderful job and the means to enjoy my doll collection. 

I know that in October I said that I would be posting again and then nothing, as once more the days went by.  I had wonderful ideas but did not execute them and now here we are in the last few days of the year.  I thought that I would try to post a picture a day as I count down the Twelve days of Christmas leading up to the Spanish tradition of the Three Kings, Los Tres Magos, arriving on January 6 with presents.  Even though I was born in  Canada, my parents are from Spain, and they tried to keep up with traditions from there.  Of course, at home we celebrate a lovely Christmas with many presents and such but I still try to get everyone a Three Kings gift. 

Now yesterday, our Boxing Day, would be the First day of Christmas and no I don't have a Partridge in a Pear tree, but will post a favourite Christmas picture from my tree this year. 

This year I also started working on my doll/media room for the first time since we moved to this house.  I found some great new shelves at Ikea and have started that as my winter project, because it also means fixing the basement where most of the dolls live right now, in boxes and out.  When it's nice outside, I don't want to be in the basement so it's perfect for this year of the year.  I just need two more new shelves and then, hopefully all the beauties will be displayed.

Now, today is the Second Day of Christmas, so I will post another picture...

The Mini Lalas are having fun hanging out by the Christmas Illuminated Balls.  These little cuties continue to travel around with me and I must post all their adventure pictures as I get caught up with this blog.

On that note, I leave you all until tomorrow.
