Dolls & Ordinary Life

Happy New Year!

Bonnie, my newest doll, wishes Happy New Year.
It is the last day of the year 2016 and it has been a rather good year, health wise. My sugar levels are better now and I feel that I am slowly taking control of it. When it comes to my anxiety and depression, it has been okay too. Not good, but I have survived. I still have full medication and will probably have it for a while. Compared to the first year, this has been marvelous year.

It has been slow, when it comes to my hobbies. Have not bought any new ball jointed beauties, even if I have seen some adorable ones. But I found an Animator doll, Merida, a Barbie (that was a surprise, that I bought one) and some Funko Pops. 

I wish that I would have found some more time to paint and sew, but there was always the opportunity to do more tomorrow, mañana. 

I do not make any New Years resolutions, because those often get heavy and more of a burden. But I will promise to do my best and make the most of the coming year.

  1. what a nice quote by CS Lewis, I love the chronicles of narnia, remind me of my childhood. I'm still not over the ending of the saga though hahaha and how many years have passed!

    1. CS Lewis, with JRR Tolkien, is two of my favourites when it comes to fantasy authors. I have read a lot about these two, and by them too. A.A. Milne is one favorite too. So m any wise words and nice life quotes. I saw the Chronicles of Narnia as a cartoon when I was a kid and the movies later on with my girls.

      Thank you, I really like my Barbie. :) Never saw that coming though.

      Let's hope for a good and healthy 2017! Happy New Year!

  2. I love the quote you left us with. It's very true.

    Isn't it a surprise when we buy a doll line we have never thought we would ever buy? I was the same as you know when I started collecting the Barbie line. That was a big shocker for me.

    Good news about your health improving this year. Don't worry about being slow at your hobbies. Things we love to do take time and that's okay. Just take things easy and as they come.

    A very Happy New Year to you. I am sending you the best wishes for a healthy, happy and safe 2017. It's been so great 'meeting' you through your blog and getting to know you through your hobby.

    Bonnie is looking as lovely as a beautiful spring day.

    1. There are so many inspirational quotes that brings hope and happiness to mind and soul. And this one is just like that. One must see ahead and have hope for far better things than we have left behind.

      Well, it is a big surprise to end up with a doll line that one never thought about before. But it fel good to find her and get her home. She is standing on my desk, and looking as lovely as a beautiful spring day - to borrow those wonderful words of yours. During my Christmas shopping, I found some delight looking Barbies and I thought that I must come back to those one day. It felt crazy, in a way, to think so. :D

      It gets a bit frustrating at times, when it is slow in this hobby. My hubby said something like you said - it is important to let it take time and you do love the hobby, so just breathe and suddenly things happen. So true.

      Happy 2017 to you! It has been a joy to ‚meet‘ and learn to know you too, through blogging and dollies! Always lovely to meet new people!
