MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I would like to wish all my friends and followers a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!


       I still have lots of dolls to add on to my website for you to see, including some lovely handmade dolls from Panama, Colombia and Turkey.  Recently, I was given a lovely pair of stringed puppets from Myanmar (previously Burma), and a rather unusual doll from The Azores, so I would like to show you those, too.

With a collection of over 2000 dolls, I am now finding it increasingly difficult to find space for new ones, so I am hoping (time permitting!) to eventually go through them to see if I have any I can dispose of, which will be put on the "DOLLS FOR SALE" page. 
In the mean time, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.  Keep safe and well!
