Creating a Covid doll world, where can everyone congregate?

SURPRISE...New Characters showed up  I found my stories hanging at the end of the year...with Covid and election drama taking over real life, and myself and my dolls choosing not to participate.

Old businesses, had to improvise---Vickie's Sanitize station and limited shoppers in the small boutique.

  4. Loved the masks and your story lines! I really enjoyed it. Got a 3" long red truck ornament (my obsession since last year) today at Dollar Tree in their markdown bin--.25! Think I will save it for a dollhouse rather than the real Christmas tree. Gotta take my treasures where I can find them. Also a package of sickly green glow in the dark beads--with a punched circle of silver or black paper, they will make great Halloween decor!
