Bad Photo Monday: What shall we do with a drunken sailor?

My photo for today is of my two sailor dolls. I was taking photos of them for Vanda’s Doll site for a post. Inside the house was much too dark so I decided to take them outside. I set them up on the back steps because then I could lean them up against the wall making them easier for me to pose them. It was afternoon and the sun was very bright. Too bright in fact and it shone on the sailor’s faces making them look rather washed out and sick. I’m thinking they must have been on the booze to get like that.



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
