|GOING TO NEW HOME!!!!|
SOMETIMES LIFE THROWS
YOU A CURVEBALL
Most everyone has 'been there'
Life as you know it turns on a dime
when this occurs you have a few choices
after the initial shock
You can shake it off,
pull yourself up by your 'bootstraps'
(having been born in Montana, but not raised there, this must
be a phrase embedded through osmosis since I use it all the time)
Or you can allow yourself to remain paralyzed
in fear and negativity.
Usually I stay in the above mentioned state...
for a bit.
Lose sleep, succumb to lurking maladies
A 'quiet freak out' mode, basically.
Then, I stop that nonsense
as it is not terribly helpful
and the old 'bootstraps' are pulled.
I am looking at many things I have acquired
over the past several years.
Most have brought me joy
Some were possibly(??) impulsive.
Regardless of the acquiring
I am taking stock and purging in a way.
This will help me financially,
and should I need to also move to a smaller abode,
it will be far easier to make that move....
AND, let's throw in that I sometimes
watch the T.V. show
and declare to myself that if I make changes
I will not be the next episode to air.
So that brings me to the crux of it all.
I will be offering items for sale
This (blogging) seemed like a good venue,
although I will possibly have
to eventually use Etsy and Ebay
for the larger audience.
My Santos Cage Doll
click on any of the photos for a larger view
|NOW GOING TO NEW HOME|
This stunning cage doll
is a highly collectible reproduction
of the dolls that were used in religious processions...
typically in Spanish or Portuguese communities...
and they would be elaborately dressed
and would wear a crown.
These humble and gentle looking dolls
would occupy a place of prominence
in the home
(of wealthy persons)
or in a chapel.
Modern day collectors
will often display them with precious objects
placed inside the skirt 'cage'
I have placed her on my fireplace mantle
during the holidays
with twinkle lights wrapped in her skirt
and have placed various objects
inside the skirt as well
She now sits in an alcove that I pass many times a day
and her sweet expression tells me:
"It will be o.k."
I would love to keep this object of joy
and encouragement....of course.
But I am a child of a very sensible upbringing
"What good are 'things'
if you need to pay your bills
or put gas in your car, etc.?"
Funny, how that voice sounds like my Dad!!
So I pulled up my boot straps,
and took stock.
And I know that everything I put up for sale
will find a wonderful home.
And bring joy to someone else now.
....and I will be helping to ensure
that the next chapter
of MY life,
will be more secure.
Now the particulars:
From head to the bottom of her skirt
she measures 31"
|photo by Rella|
Her head measure 8 1/2"
if you are inclined to fit her with a crown.
The rosary beads are not included
in the price
as it is a very special vintage set
hand made in Jersulam
and I am sending them to my Father
who is at this moment in Yale New Haven Hospital
after fracturing his femur yesterday in a fall.
At 79 he simply will not stop
climbing ladders to 'fix'
or clean things.
And shall I just say this is not his first mishap!!!
So if you have been longing for a Santos Doll
....or did not even know you were
...until this moment
or want to surprise someone at
I am setting her price at a savings
GOING TO A NEW HOME!!
(Plus priority/insured shipping to your area.)
I can do PayPal

It brings me joy to know this sweetdoll is going to a wonderful home.
