Look what I found!

I have had the best couple of weeks finding goodies at flea markets and thrift stores.
I was looking through a box of old letters and found this little indiscriminating box. I had no idea what I was about to find.
I slowly opened it....just in case something might fall out.
and look what was inside!!!
A tiny pair of bisque dolls!! I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw this gorgeous little pair. They stand about 2 1/2 inches tall and are dressed in their best fine dress. He is wearing a blue wool suit and she is wearing a dress with a lace color and painted red boots.
The man I purchased them from said they were French. That the lady he purchased them from was from France. I just love them! They have a new home perched inside their little box inside my new china cabinet. (That would be new to me china cabinet - more on that later! )

Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Wont you stop and remember me?
Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky
Its a hazy shade of winter
Look around
Leaves are brown
Theres a patch of snow on the ground
- Paul Simon
