Raggedy Ann


It seems everyone loves Raggedy. 
I guess a lap is a lap, real or not. ha.



And the Frost Moon last night, after the tornado warnings, sirens and
incredibly strong and howling winds blew away the rain and clouds.

    1. Yep...I think the moon was especially wonderful after the rough scary weather we had just been through!

  3. How heart warming that your felines curl up on your rag doll. And that is in your studio, isn't it? I guess they are all lounging in there because you are there, Sunshine! I don't blame them one bit.

    And let me guess! You were in a space ship to take that photo of the moon? Splendid!

    1. I guess you could say there are two dolls in your studio? Yes, I do believe that!

    2. Yes, it's in my studio and as soon as I sat in there to work they found me and warmed up the place. :)

      Nope...standing on the ground! :)

    3. Are there clouds hanging over you today, Sunshine? Your Happening Now bulletin sounds some what blue. Here's sending some warming, loving breezes your way to chase away those clouds! I hope you have a smile on that pretty face of yours and don't waste your time on anyone or anything that doesn't make you happy! Life is too short!

  6. Raggedy Ann's lap is so very inviting. I love that each of them found it and in a different position. I had two darling Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls years ago. I had a new niece, and we were dirt poor, so I have them to Amy. I know she loved them when she was little, but she almost 40 and after my brother's divorce we have not had much contact except to send a Birthday Card. Wonder if she still has them, or they've been passed on again. I wonder??? The moon is outstanding!

    1. Well, where ever your Raggedy ended up, I'm sure she brought her share of smiles to some little ones!

    1. I didn't even expect to see the moon last night! It was very bright all night, too...looked like a light was on outside the window!

  8. Love the kitties all adapting to the lap. Smoke is saying, "Excuse me? Trying to get a few winks here, Betsy!" :-) They look so cosy. I bet it is fun to be surrounded by all that purring. Maybe one day you can do a wee recording for us if a lot of them are vocalising.

    GORGEOUS moon. I shiver looking at it. Very strong winds here too last night and predicted again for tonight. I know it was not as bad as your tornado warnings... but I thought at one point my windows were going to implode! Scary. I hope it is calmer tonight.

    1. A recording of them would be fun! I do have one of Smoke jumping inside from the open window. Pretty funny.

      The wind just makes you feel cold even when you're only listening to it, don't you think? It's still windy here!

  13. hahaha they have a new friend
    I sense a trend
    Soon you'll have to get them all a doll

    1. I wonder if they want a human doll
      or a cat one at my hall.
      14 stuffed cats
      for 14 cats at my mat.
      Could get a little crowded though
      as I wade through the furry show.

    2. lol yes, but you'd have to get a bunny too
      So Nugget doesn't feel left out at your zoo
      Weren't you higher than 14
      There at your scene

    3. In the last year Tipper, Mustache and Oreo disappeared.
      Then Cocoa came near.
      So 14 it remains.
      Hopefully we won't any more gain. :)

  14. We had wild winds all day. They tried to blow m y garbage cans across the yard but I was too quick and caught them before they traveled any great distance.

    Love the Raggedy Ann cat napper. Maybe I should get one of those for my little dog.

  17. What a wonderful photograph of the moon. And after the weather you have been having I don't blame the cat for finding shelter where he can. Stay safe Betsy

  18. Funny how the American Raggedy Anns are usually in orange tones...whereas the Canadian dolls are always red and white!
    I plan to make Vivian a very unconventional doll...various colors...to suit her vivacious personality!♥
    I scrambled outside in the wind, last night...to get a few more shots of that glorious Moon...
    Glad to hear Alex is AOK!!!
    Enjoy your day♥
    Don't let things get to you.....{read your sidebar...as always!}

    Cheers!

  22. Hi Betsy,
    the moon was just as spectacular at our side of the ocean! And one raggedy Ann I also knew a long time ago. It belonged to Joanna, a young American girl, whose babysitter I was, while I was a student at the university of Tubingen. The doll had a brother called raggedy Andy, who belonged to Joannas brother Jeremy. They all returned to the States long ago and unfortunately I have lost contact,,, Nice memories though...
