tickled pink

Went to a outdoor craft show, and ran across a woman that made oil fueled wick candles out of bottles and jars. She had a quite a few creative things going on.

As for the vintage troll with the crazy pink do…he has quite a history.
Invented in 1959 by a Danish woodworker, troll dolls became a North American toy craze in the early ‘60s and again in the ’90s. Thomas Dam carved his first troll doll as a gift for his daughter; he then began selling the dolls locally after his daughter's friends started asking for them. They were originally called Dam Dolls and were made of wood, with woolen hair and glass eyes. They became fads again in brief periods from the 1970s through the 1990s and were copied by several manufacturers under different names. During the 1990s several video games and a video show based on troll dolls were created. In 2003 the Dam company restored their United States copyrights, stopping unlicensed production.

Hi,
Thanks for your advice in the forum about the memory cards!
I have to copy my message here before it is flushed off!

@popparatzee Thanks! I prefer to carry cards with 4 - 8 GB instead of 16 or 32 as well. Can't bear the thought of finding one corrupted and everything gone

what IS that guy in #2? I've seen him before. My kid's too old for these things now, so I don't know. Good selective desaturation, by the way.
