Playing House

I still like a nice doll - couldn't resist this little guy today at our local "Sunfest" event - regardless of what happens with the Ghana program, I'll keep him on display. He's made in South Africa, dressed by local women, and so charming. These dolls are all named, and are all one-of-a-kind. Each comes with a card showing the name and village of the woman who made the outfit. His name, Kagiso, means "peace" in Tswana. We also chose a lovely recycled steel heron-type bird for our trailer garden at the campground - just what we've been looking for, and made by a man in Zimbabwe.
