Sunday Stills ~ Pick Two

The challenge was to pick two previous challenges. I chose both from 2009, before I started participating in Sunday Stills.


For the Color Red Challenge, I chose my cactus. I started it about 5 years ago from a small 4" section that broke off of a very old plant, that my neighbor has grown for many years. I stuck it in the dirt, and this is what I got:

Epiphyllum (Epi Cactus)


I really had fun with my second choice, the Toy Challenge! I am not a doll person, but when I was a little girl I had some tiny 2" dolls I treasured from the Kiddle collection. Some were scented. I spent many imaginative hours playing with them. I saved some for my girls, and still have a few. I'm sure they were happy to get out of their containers, and explore!

On the right is Kiddle Kologne made in 1967, she still smells a little like Lily of the Valley

Always a Dreamer

Walking through the Woods

Swinging in the Breeze

This was a Lilac scented doll, I don't have the container anymore.
I also had a Strawberry one with pinkish hair, not sure what happened to it.

I like them all but "Always a Dreamer" is wonderful. She and Ed's Spiderman should get together;)

I loved Liddle Kiddles! I didn't have any, but a friend did and I was so jealous. :-) Loved the pictures of them.
