Gertie in Chicago (miniature doll)
Here is Gertie in Chicago. She enjoyed her stay at the Marriot. She relaxed with a big glass (for her) of diet Coke. You have to watch that figure you know.
She had a great time at the Bishop show and the Brookfield zoo. She especially liked the skinks and the large sea turtle statue. Also had a great time laughing at the chimps antics.
We managed to find alot of miniatures to bring home. The dove stained glass is one that my hubby decided we needed. Now to figure out which house, new or old, to put it in. I did find some more Raggetty Ann and Andy's for my collection. I love the turned vase. Pretty much everything except the furniture and rugs came from the Bishop show. The furniture and rugs I found at an extremely good price at the 3 Blind Mice Show. Also the wolf and deer head. All and all it was a nice relaxing 3 days. It was so nice to get away. We also have a Marcia Backstrom doll that we ordered. Actually we didn't have our checkbook and she doesn't take charge cards so we had to send her a check when we got home. Hopefully our little girl will arrive home soon. Can't wait for next year! Hugs, Teresa
