Dear Friends, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope your 2014 is off to a great start. So take a look at this!
Oooohhh, ahhhh... (and Brrrrrr!)... Look at this byoootiful Gryphon statue that someone did for an Ice Sculpting competition in Fairbanks, Alaska! Isn't it magnificent? Pretty darned amazing!
In other news today, was doing some research for the next Gryphon Chronicles book and came across this wonderful short video about the conservation effort to preserve some of Queen Victoria's childhood dolls.
Hmm, maybe royal baby Prince George will be allowed to play with them when he's a toddler... On second thought, nah... LOL. He'd probably just destroy them. (Which reminds me of a story I saw in the news the other day about the curious toddler who found Mommy and Daddy's secret stash of emergency money at home and proceeded to tear it up into New Year's Eve confetti. Doh! LOL.)
Anyway, enjoy the video - and I definitely recommend subscribing to the Historic Royal Palaces Youtube channel! Great stuff there by the experts (including a detailed tour of the Tower of London, if you've never been there!) Happy New Year once again, and good luck keeping your Resolutions! (I've already broken mine. LOL.)
