He's been asking me all day if he can go outside to climb the trees.

I tell him "No" because it looks like THIS outside:

...and he insists on going barefoot because he is a "jungle boy".  "Be patient", I said. Not time for barefoot weather yet.

So instead, he has been jumping and climbing and hanging upside down on the couch, like a proper jungle boy would.  He is my first boy doll and much different from the girls in their pretty dresses and pantaloons and striped stockings.  

Caught a few haunted house movies this weekend while I stuffed and sewed:  "Clara's Secret" and "Secrets in the Walls" and "You Belong to Me".   

Still have three primitive dolls waiting to be stuffed, put together and dressed.  And three doodles on my dining room table:  a bunny shelf sitter, birthday kitty and "fang"...she's a girl raggedy who lives at the end of the street in an old victorian house.  Ah...too many scary movies! LOL

Hope your weekend has been good to you♥

Awww, Boy George is so cute! Love his little face! And his jungle clothes are great! It really suits him!
I've tried to follow you on Google Friend Connect, but I don't think that thing is working anymore.

Boy George is adorable and sounds like a very typical boy indeed! Sorry about the white stuff, hope it's gone soon but on the bright side it will keep you inside sewing, stuffing and creating :O) Can't wait to see what you come up with next! Deb
