Lola Gladiolus

It's official. The new dolly's name is Lola Gladiolus. She and Glorious Dolorious are thinking about having a Show in the Glitter Room.

Glorious, Lola, and Charlie talk about their new Show.
Chardonnay is thinking she might want to join. She would have to have a new dress, of course, with lots of fruit on her head.

Yesterday at work I found a marvelous bag of miniatures.

Georgia, Mr. Philadelphia, and Mary Rose are enchanted with the new victrola
The victrola has a magnet on one side and the other side says "Acme Home Phonograph." On the bottom it says 1996 Acme China.

Bonnie and Lauren prefer the new radio
The radio has no markings on it at all.

Starla, Reginald, Edward, and Flora think the children will love the Noah's Ark
Again, no markings on it. (We really must get a better dining room table.)

Very nice telephone
Unfortunately, the telephone is way too big for them. It is from Durham Industries, made in Hong Kong and is from the late 1970s.

Meanwhile, a few other projects:

The beginnings of the new bathtub
Dorinda and Alice can't wait to have a real bathtub. It just needs some sort of frame.

Goldie and Edward wish their legs were jointed so they could sit on the newly painted bench
The garden bench for the atrium has been painted.

Lauren and Glorianna in the music room
In the music room is a lovely fan donated by Auntie Berman, and one of the two Avon pot-bellied stoves we've found at thrift stores. Glorianna is standing by the music box I got when I was 4 years old.
