Aging is beautiful and gray hair is not only beautiful, but something to be proud of. After all you've earned all those gray or white hairs. Stand up and say, "I'm gray and proud of it!" Better yet, "I'm a senior citizen and PROUD of it!" This blog is in honor of all the aging, graying, baby boomer, senior citizens, Grandmothers, Nana's, Grandma's and Grannies out there. If you're young and gray-haired or white-haired this blog is for you, too.

Meet The GRAYS

Meet The GRAYS - Celia - Red Hat Society Art Doll


Meet the newest member of the Gray Is Beautiful Society.  Her name is Celia and she loves being a member of the Red Hat Society.

Celia has been a member of The Red Hat Society for a long time and thoroughly enjoys the times they get together. She and the other ladies of the club love dressing up in their purple dresses and red hats, and letting their hair down. Sometimes things get a little wild, but that doesn't deter any of the ladies. They love their lives, they love each other, and best of all they love happy fun - especially when it's the dress-up kind.

Meet The GRAYS - Helena


Helena is proud of her beautiful grayish white hair. She's a tough old bird and can definitely handle anything that is thrown at her.

The reason for that is that there is nothing in life that Helena hasn't seen or done. Everything she's learned to do she has taught herself.

She's street smart, wise, prudent, loyal, feisty, and delicate, too. After all she is a female. She may be tough but she still likes frilly, feminine things like lace trimmed dresses and lace shawls.

Helena kind of reminds me of the two old biddies from the movie "Gone With The Wind." You might see her walking down the street conversing with everyone and definitely letting them know her opinion on different subjects.

Of course, she's also the one you turn to when you need advice for you can always count on her. If Helena says she'll do something then she will.

“Helena” is a tough old bird and can handle anything that is thrown at her. There is nothing in life she hasn’t seen or done.

“Helena” is a PROUD member of the “Gray Is Beautiful!” Club.

My Love Affair With Jigsaw Puzzles



I have loved jigsaw puzzles since I was a little girl and can remember sitting and doing them all weekend long. I'd keep at it until I put the whole puzzle together and would then dismantle it and do it again at a later point in time. I never tired of them.

So, of course, I had to make some for my "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" when they became available. When "The Grays" were setting up their new designs on their "Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery" they told me we had to have a lot of jigsaw puzzles for the new designs.

 It turns out they love them, too. So, design some we did.

 At last count we had 38 jigsaw puzzle designs.


See other gifts available on Zazzle.

Several years ago my grandson was coming to visit so I decided to order two of the jigsaw puzzles I had made for my "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" and put them together with him during that visit.  So,  of course, I wrote a Linda's Blog post about this and thought you might reading it here.
