What is a Doll?

How long have we had this love affair with Dolls?

Pearls of Wisdom:

New World Dictionary describes a doll as - "a child's toy, puppet, marionette, etc. made to resemble a human being."

And they lived happily everafter....

Mimosa /orange juice early in the morning (in my pj's) watching a fairytale unfolding. My heartfelt wishes of lasting happiness to this beautiful young couple.

Her wedding dress, a beautiful throw back to the fifties, brought back memories of Grace Kelly's wedding to the Prince of Monaco.

The future King of England and the comely commoner who captured his royal heart tied the knot Friday while the British Empire - and the rest of the world - watched in rapture. Prince William and Kate Middleton, dubbed the duke and duchess of Cambridge before the ceremony, set off a wave of euphoria and celebrations across England and in former colonial outposts like New York City. After saying "I will" at Westminster Abbey, the happy couple departed for their reception by horse-drawn carriage to the tolling of the abbey's bells and cheers from the throngs lining the route to the royal reception at Buckingham Palace.


  1. It was a beautiful ceremony! They are a Beautiful Couple! I was up early to watch and thought the gown was exquisite! It made a Happy Day!

  2. I agree with you...I was up early as well. With all the tragedy going on these days, this was a welcome relief. They looked happy and very much in love. Her gown brought back memories of Grace Kelly's wedding to the prince of Monaco. Very classy.

  3. I cried and loved it! Thought i'd pass on watching but couldnt and I really really think they are two lovely people.
