Magic Margot Shoebox is a collection point for all that I hold dear - and that's a lot. My recent inspiration is Don Floyd's new blog thecaptainandthomasine.

The original title of my blog "Chihuahuas for Change" popped into my head two years ago when I was looking for a place to "store" all the information I accumulated on Sarah Palin. I've since dumped that information as others have done a far better job researching and accumulating.

Life is about change and since I have darling Libby the chihuahua the title seems to still be fresh.

Do your own research.

I told you this is a shoebox and we all know that we simply put stuff into a shoebox in no particular order. That's how things are going to appear here. When something whaps me over the head you will be the first to know.

Right now, I want to tell you about my favorite blog in the whole wide world - Margaret and Helen. Hope you go read their post called "I can see November" - while there note their statistics. A grandson set this site up and it's been around the world several times. Margaret and Helen have been friends for over sixty years and counting.

Don Floyd and I have been friends for more than thirty years and counting. We first became pen pals in the late 70's. We are cousins and share a passion for genealogy. My major project this year was helping Don get his book "The Captain and Thomasine" published. Will give you more details in later post.

These dolls have been a secret till this very moment. Only two of my best friends, Margaret Fuselier and husband Steve have seen them. They are carefully tucked away as gifts for the "kidlets" when they are older. Each doll is dressed in something special from the past and each wears jewelry from ancestors. I've assigned one to each of the girls and they come complete with a full description. I must design something for Stephen.

You will note that there are seven female "kidlets" and yet you only see six dolls. This project was completed before Anna Margaret was born - but once we knew she was on the way, I scrambled to do a doll for her, but that was after the photo session.
