Dorney Park, Amore Viineyards
Meggins came all the way from Australia to vacation with us in charming Bethlehem. After her jetlag cleared, we played all week. We toured a ton of places, including the Rose Gardens where she insisted on taking a photo of a lizard she spotted on the sign. We took the town by storm, ate in some terrific places, including the Sayre Mansion where she feasted on strawberry mile-high pie. She got on famously with the Yorkies and slept on a cozy bed on the bookshelf (near the travel section, of course).Later in the week, we visited nearby towns, watched movies--she loved UP!, rode the rollercoaster art Dorney Park ...and raised our glasses in a toast to vacations. She drank her favorite Peach Belini over minced ice. We also went to the local winery and toured the vineyards, then had a winetasting. Yum!
She shopped for prezzies to take back to Australia--and especially loved the Monogram Store where she bought a handpainted brooch. She left today for her next vacation stop at Michelle's. So she is bound for a great time in Magicville.

Oh man! It's Blind Date Bob! Look who he's here to see. I think they may go out tonight. I'm not so sure. He may just hang out here with her. Why is she so attractive to men? It must be her down to earth and worldly attitude. He's got candy and flowers. What a guy. I think he may be trying to make up his comb over.
She'll be taking a midnight plane out of Illinois tonight as she didn't want to miss listening to the jazz band with my friends and me this evening.
I actually made one for each after they couldn't agreed to who take it home.
Later today Zenina is going to tell some fortunes and then the girls
will visit with one of the oldest dolls in the studio.
The sun is finally out here and we will be going to some garage sales.
Then there is dinner planned and they'll be off to other parts unknown.
Hank wants to go with them but I said no. That's all
we'd need is for him to be on the his own out there. Who knows what

Lucy came to visit me this weekend. It has been so cold and rainy here. We are wondering what we will do. Here she is on arrival. Looks like the virtual trip kind of dazed her. She's still asleep as I'll post pictures after the effects of the trip wear off.
She just had to hang out Aquarius before he gets filled with water for the Summer!
One thing about Farushka, she loves plants...always milling around them and making sure they have enough water! LOL
As always, she is right beside me in the studio looking over my shoulder seeing what I'm up to and making sure I add the right fashion designs for the new creations that emerge from the Studio!
She is off to Illinois to spend...what will be a great adventure with Kathryn! Enjoy your journey Farushka, I'll be waiting for your return and looking forward to hearing about the many adventures that you will be taking this Summer!

Introducing the very first Virtual Art Dolls On The Move.
Here are the easy to follow guidelines... Find your name on the list that is published in our group on http://nancyesartdolls.ning.com and send a photo of your doll (by email) to the persons name under yours. Then we will continue in order until we are finished. You can keep the photo and do stuff for one week. Then send it to the next in line. Don't forget that you are all authors on the blog and can sign in and write what you want there. Photos, adventures etc. If you cannot do anything with the photo in real life make it up and take pictures. This should be a challenge and fun at the same time.
