  1. I didn’t know any of the Super Bowl answers, but I knew six of the doll answers. I watch the SB for the commercials. lol I have to say that Nyssa in that green dress is just beautiful! I love her red hair!

    • Thanks Regina,
      You did WELL on the doll questions! I like the Super Bowl commercials too. Thank you for your sweet comments on Nyssa. She is a beauty no matter what wig she’s wearing!
      Blessings, Jeanne

  2. Hi Jeanne,
    I only got two Super Bowl questions correct- blimps and food. I got ALL but two doll questions correct. The two I missed weren’t PC/AG questions, so that proves how long we have loved those dolls. As usual, I think Felicity’s Colonial gowns are gorgeous and
    your Isabelle looks ready for a picnic on the 4th of July. Considering we have about 5-6 inches of snow on the ground here in the Midwest I’m wishing for warm weather, too.

    • Hi Laura,
      You did well like Regina! Congrats to both of you! Thanks for the compliments on my Colonial dresses. It’s high time for a new one I think!
      It’s cold here, but thankfully no snow!
      Blessings, Jeanne

  3. Kathie Welsh says:

    Yes, it’s a snowman kind of day….lot’s of snow here overnight. Woke to that “very quiet”
    feel that happens when there is lots of snow out there. It’s really pretty covering all the evergreen trees and stacked up on the picket fence. Glad to be home with nowhere to go…many are without power too. Time to make a pot of chili!

    • HI Kathie,
      I just made my chili 3 nights ago, but it’s something I love to make AND eat and think I could serve it 2 times a week and get no complaints.
      BRRR…all you ladies with snow are making me cold!
      Blessings, Jeanne

  4. The auction: I expected a little action in the last minute, but it was the last second. Sometimes I wonder if the second to the high bidder breathes a sigh of relief not to have won when thinking of payment. I’d guess in this case when you have thousands to spend money isn’t an issue. I googled and read more about the artist. In her drawing of Cinderella the face reminds me of a cat. I think the basic doll would be a dream to hold in the hands.

    Totally clueless on the Super Bowl quiz and know little about the AG. I now read the sports page though. I had one AG so I could make clothing for gifts and attended one Museum sale. I did get a few of your doll questions right.

    I’m down to one ABJD, Littlefee. I just hate the chance of yellowing resin so the dolls always lived in closet drawers. I paid little attention to dolls for more then five years. I knew nothing about Kaye Wiggs dolls. I see two on your shelf and wonder if they need silk covers to protect them. Maybe all resin doesn’t yellow.

    • Hi Jan,
      I was expecting something really exciting at the very end too….something even more than what we got! I guess the person that won will be stalking their mailbox daily till she arrives!

      Fortunately my quiz wasn’t for a grade but just for fun!
      My Nyssa and Hope dolls were only out of their box for the photo shoot. They don’t stay on my shelves as I don’t want them to yellow either.
      Thanks Jan,
      Blessings, Jeanne

    • Thanks for your reply. I can stop worrying about protecting them.

  5. Linda Doyle says:

    Oh boy, that auction! I was wondering if there were just a few bidders having a bidding war, but, unfortunately, you can’t see who the bidders are. I am just speechless about that amount of money for a doll!

    I got a few SB questions right, I actually remember the first one, SB, that is! Bart Starr was all the rage back then! I got all the AG questions right, but the other dolls, I am not familiar with., since I only collect AG, and some Madame Alexanders.

    I just love the colonial dresses, Jeanne! We need more of those!

    • Hi Linda,
      That was truly the doll auction to watch. I’m not sure I’ll be telling any of my friends about it though. They barely get the idea of grown women playing with dolls as it is, so they surely wouldn’t understand $76,500!

      Good for you on the quiz!

      I know, I know… I found myself looking over my Colonial fabrics and patterns last night… you all are swaying me in that direction!
      Blessings, Jeanne
