Found picture

Linking to

Looking on line I found this picture. It is so sweet. I hope to get back to making dolls and maybe use this for an inspiration.

I love old pictures with dolls in them.

Maybe you didn't even know I make and collect dolls. Dolls in the doll room.

Did you ever have a doll purse?I did. Not this one. Mine is long gone. They zipped open in the back.

 Some of my tiny dolls in the china cupboard. It is true I will never outgrow my love for dolls. Hope your week is going well. j

New nativity made in Poland.

As a gift we received a new nativity from our children. They were living in Germany and did some traveling while there. Iris is a shopper and she found this, nativity, in Poland. It is all hand made by villagers. You can find more information about the mission on line at,

I wish you all good health in 2015. j
