Santos Cage Doll and Amaryllis

Hello!  This is my first post this year.  It seemed to take me longer to get Christmas put away and getting things back to normal, plus we caught that cold that everyone seems to be catching which took a while to get over.  Anyway....

I've had my Santos Cage Doll for many years, she's a re-production doll.  She has been moved around the house a lot and I decided to give her a more prominent spot.  This Santos Doll has removable wings and if you want to read a brief history on them you can do so "here".

 I was looking for something to fill her cage and I finally decided to do it with some deco balls.  They were a bit big to get through the cage area so I was able to unscrew the top of one on the back slats, slid it over and put the deco balls in.  

 I don't remember if I showed you my little dog before.  Currently she is carrying a basket full of ferns.  I thought a pop of greenery was due!  I've been using the stand that the Santos Doll is on for  Christmas displaying but got to thinking why not keep it around.  Then it came to me to put the Santos Doll on it.  

A little unconventional design but I like it!

 I picked up some Amaryllis bulbs at Home Depot after Christmas.  They looked like good healthy bulbs and so I potted them up and this one has three stems.  It's still opening up and I'll enjoy their blooms for a while longer.

 The sun was shining in on them so I captured a few shots.
This is called Red Velvet.  It's a pretty common one and it sure does impress!  

My Thanksgiving Cactus decided to put off a few more flowers too!

So that's my current status!  


  1. Love the cage doll and the amaryllis is stunning. So glad you are feeling better after this nasty cold. We got it too and it is a doozy.

  2. Happy New Year, Liz! Looks great!

  7. The cage Santos is beautiful, Liz and it looks fabulous on the stand. How nice to enjoy the amaryllis in January, it brings a pop of color on a winter’s day. I am glad you are feeling better, and Happy New Year!

  8. Liz, your new Santos is a beautiful girl. Your pretty blooming amaryllis reminds me that I have some bulbs I still need to plant! Happy 2020!
