When I recreated my blog header here, I brought my Madeline doll over by the bookshelves, and set her next to some of the Disney figurines for her photo op.  She needed to shine.


Normally she sits on the hall tree with other friends:  I love the big Mary Engelbreit doll on the right.  Behind her and behind Madeline on the left are Red Ridinghood and the Wolf…which I found in a neighborhood shop a few years ago.  I like how the mirror reflects my bookshelves.  I also collect quirky handbags with Elvis, Betty Boop, and Marilyn Monroe images, along with one from Mary Engelbreit.  In the center, a big Boyd’s Bears goose with a bear atop it.

Sometimes I move them around…they’ve been atop my sofa table, too, but I prefer them at the front door, greeting guests.


So…good morning, and let’s talk about Tuesday events. Amazon Book Release day, of course.  I’ve been over there downloading a couple of books that I had bookmarked:

Cold as Ice (e-book), by Julie MulhernBook Six in the Country Club Murder Series

I’ve heard that this one is the best of the lot!  But since I’ve loved all of them so far, I didn’t need to read that to know I’m eager to dive into this one.


The Last Mrs. Parrish (e-book), by Liv Constantine

The mesmerizing debut about a coolly manipulative woman and a wealthy “golden couple,” from a stunning new voice in psychological suspense.

Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.


I’m currently reading and loving Lie to Me, by J. T. Ellison.  Lots of interesting twists, and numerous perspectives.

Today I featured this book in my Rainy Day Excerpts.

What does your Tuesday look like?  New books?  Interesting memes?
