Oh Babies!


A window display in a building along Main Street in Bennington, Vermont, is enough to stop onlookers in their tracks.

A group of incredibly real-looking baby dolls draws oooo's and ahhhhh's from people standing there on the sidewalk.


The baby dolls are adorable.  One can almost see their little eyelashes flutter. 

They sleep and look like little angels, they curl up their tiny hands, just like real babies, and they make almost everyone who sees them smile at their innocence. 

While some of the baby dolls snooze, others look like they are staring at the humans looking at them through the big glass window.

It's hard to fathom that they don't start to cry for their "bah-bahs."


Dressed in real tiny baby clothes, the reborn baby dolls are all for sale. 

They are from Until Forever Nursery Reborn Dolls, the brainchild of two real-life sisters, Julie Crosier and Kathy George.


Full details of their successful business and the story behind Until Forever Nursery Reborn Dolls can be found on their Facebook page.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN DOLLS THAT LOOK EXACTLY LIKE BABIES?


Bakery in Miniature


Look at the fabulous dollhouse-sized bakery, above and below.



Best part is all the luscious treats shown have no calories at all!

The bakery is displayed in the Dollhouse and Toy Museum of Vermont in Bennington.


What joy it is to peak into all the fabulous dollhouses displayed there.  

Jackie Marro, a personable and knowledgeable miniaturist, opened the museum about five years ago. 


Visitors are even given flashlights so they don't miss a single detail in the sometimes darker corners of houses.

Making a dollhouse art gallery has been on my bucket list for some time so you can imagine what a thrill it was to see the one shown in this post.

"Summertime, and the Living Is Easy..."


One of the luxuries of summer is taking rests on a lounge in the backyard.



The fountain trickles, windchimes tingle,  and birds fly in for nibbles at two feeders or flit over to the bird bath for a sip.

Hubs, bless his heart, hung the feeders from an old line, making it virtually squirrel-proof.



They make dozens of valid attempts to raid those feeders but they cannot reach them no matter what! Yippah!

That doesn't mean the little bushy tails have disappeared.  Uh uh. They peruse the area under the feeders for seeds the birds drop.


It's a lovely retreat when the weather cooperates.

DO YOU HAVE WILDLIFE WHERE YOU LIVE?
