January 25th, 2017

Good afternoon, everybody! Things have been pretty quiet around here. I’ve been encouraging Mom to stop checking Facebook all the time due to the current political situation around here. (It just depresses her.) She still checks it once or twice a day—but I’m trying to discourage it all the time! We will see now that goes! (We check Instagram instead!)
Mom bought all sorts of miniature stuff for our future dollhouse earlier this week. Michaels, a chain craft store, had some new miniature stuff in their advertisement, and she just had to go and check it out!

It’s a pelican! Mom, who is a stickler for scale, has decided that it’s a juvenile pelican, because it is too small to be a full sized one. They are very big birds! (I fell into the Wikipedia trap there for a bit—now I know that pelicans have been found in rocks that are 30 million years old!)

And then a pair of mallard ducks! Mom bought these because the one in the foreground is a girl mallard—and it actually has the blue wing feathers! (Wikipedia says they are speculum feathers!) Mallards in crafty things are almost always boys. (They have flashy heads.)
Do any of you have any miniature things you like? Mom loves miniature things, so I love them too! Talk to you all later!
