A thing of beauty:
and….uh….not so much:
My first peach jam ever seems to be successful. Try not to notice the bubbles I missed. I got 8 half pints out of it, so I’m happy.
The doll is a grubby thing in a dirty dress that I found at the flea market today. She is otherwise in good condition and will join a basketful of such babies that I have saved for retirement time, when I will refurbish and redress them, then either sell them or give them to charities. I cannot resist a dirty baby doll that just needs some T.L.C.
Gotta get back to the kitchen to make another batch of peach jam. I’m feeling sooooo good about this. Later…..
Update 9/16/09 : I’m happy my little doll came out looking so nice after a very thorough scrubbing and a turn through the washer for her dress.
Eventually, she will also have a new bonnet, panties and booties, but for now, at least she looks clean and happy….just possibly, um…. “drafty?”
