  13. Hello Ann, my new Friday random 5 friend. I love witches too, and love your little blue-haired cutie the most. Last year I made two silent companions; life-sized creepy little girls, and this year I thought I should make a life-sized nanny to watch over them. Maybe she could have a witch something about her. :) Have a lovely weekend.

  18. Welcome to R5Friday - Glad you joined in.
    I've never seen "Witch Dolls" like these before. They are pretty cool looking. You have a great collection.
    I love Halloween too. I need to get my decorations out this coming week. I try to buy something new every year to add to my decorations.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've heard that (maybe) somewhere down the line the Ziva character might be back but it's not a concrete thing. I liked the hint of romance between her and Tony's character's.

    1. ....yes, the "Tiva" is very tantalizing to us viewers.

    1. I posted above some other comment response, but the newest ones are named after characters of NCIS [with a feminine touch ...like Toni (for Tony) and Elle Jae (for Gibbs...Leroy Jethro)...last year, the ones I bought were all E. A. Poe....Raven, Annabelle, and Lenore.

  37. Those dolls are surely creepy. I attempted to collect pretty porcelain dolls a few years back but I quit after only two dolls. It's not my type of hobby and I didn't want to have so many things to clean of dust. :P I still have one of them, Renate, wich I brought from a vacation in Tirol - Austria.
