Hand Painted Doll Wardrobe
I FINALLY painted this pretty little doll wardrobe.
I've had it for about 3 years.
Out with the old and in with the new!
This is the top.
It has a drawer on the bottom.
It stands about 24 inches tall (2 feet)x 15 inches wide.
A little latch on top holds the doors shut.
A view of the knobs.
It is painted on the inside, too and has a pole for hanging doll cloths.
It is available in my

Nantucket Moby Dick Marathon
The 3rd annual
Moby Dick Marathon reading
at The Nantucket
started things off.
It is about 25 hours long and we start on Saturday morning
and read straight through to Sunday afternoon.
I read chapter 126
"The Life Buoy"
which is the only chapter
that mentions MERMAIDS!
There were two fellows who were promoting their new card game,
MOBY DICK, or,the card game.
..." a dynamic adventure card game for 2-4 players
recreating the doomed voyage of the Pequod. Hire a crew, set sail,
and brave the terror of the white whale.Do you
have what it takes to survive Ahab's ambition?"
You know it will be the hottest game on Nantucket!
You can buy it
It will be available at
soon as well!
They stayed through the whole marathon.
Here's Joel taking a snooze.
Good work, Guys!
After the epilogue, we all get a nice cold bottle of
Whale's Tail Pale Ale
.(made right here on Nantucket!)
and some DELICIOUS chowda from
Annye's Whole Foods.
Bea and chowda
....what more could you ask for?
reading the epilogue.
Here's to another fine marathon reading!
Happy Winter, all!
