Found this weirdly wonderful vintage tin at the thrift store recently. It's made to look like a birdcage, and on each side there are different birds. A handy-dandy guide on the bottom tells you their names. I found the same one on Etsy and Rubylane for $30 and $22 USD, respectively. Mine is missing the original hanging loop on the top but I'm sure I can replace it. Plus it only cost me $2! #vintage #vintagetins #birdcage #parakeet #thriftstorefinds

Bunsos enjoys some carrots and chippie stops for a drink of water on this rainy day. #bunny #rabbit #chipmunk #backyard #wildlife

Here's the body of the thrift store doll disassembled. The cloth body needs to be stuffed with more fiber fill. Right now it's too squishy and doesn't hold its shape well enough to properly support the porcelain head. #dollmaking #dollrestoration #porcelaindoll #crafting

Working on my thrift store doll head. Spent over an hour last night using some heavy duty chemical cleaner that can (slowly) remove fired-on china paint. I removed the old eyebrows and eyelashes. I've now applied the undercoat for the new eyebrows, which are supposed to be in a specific thick style, if you go by the antique dolls. #dollmaking #dollrestoration #porcelaindoll #crafting

A white-crowned sparrow is visiting us. There were six of them here yesterday. I consulted my ornithology expert (aka Dad) and he said they should be here about a week before they continue to their summer breeding grounds in the sub-arctic. #birds #sparrow #backyard #wildlife

Another rescue doll from the thrift store. She cost less than $10. She was handmade by a porcelain doll maker, probably back in the heyday of the 1980s. Her outfit is well made and even lined, with underwear and all. Her wig is just a bit messy. Unfortunately, the painting of her face was not well done. I may be able to make her over. We'll see. #thriftstorefinds #porcelaindoll #project #dollmaking

A few snaps from the extensive Egyptian galleries at the Metropolitan Museum. Too many objects and too many people to take proper photos. #metropolitanmuseumofart #nyc #egyptian #ancientegypt

Went to see Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theater last evening. Gorgeous decor inside! The show was fun and brought back memories of high school days when I first saw the movie. #aladdin #aladdinbroadway #theater #nyc #newamsterdamtheatre

Finally got to see the Tolkien exhibit! No photos allowed inside. How amazing it was to see his original artwork, manuscripts, and maps, in such vivid and tiny (!) detail. #morganlibrary #tolkien #exhibit #lordoftherings #thehobbit #silmarillion

Out for Mexican food in Soho at Lupe's. We were last at this restaurant about 10 years ago and it was delicious. Looking forward to my burrito! #soho #nyc #lupes #mexicanfood
