HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 
TO ALL MY
FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS
FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD




I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all my friends and followers, for all the support you have given me during the year.  It makes my website all worth while!  I love hearing from you!  My website has opened up a lot of interesting opportunities for me, and through it, I have "met" some very interesting people, some of them personally, and from different countries.

I have many "doll" friends around the world, including America to Indonesia, Russia to Africa, Asia to Australia, and even the remote Island of Pitcairn, which makes it all so interesting for me.  It is a truly wonderful thing for me to have "met" you on-line, and I hope you will continue to follow me.
Just in December alone, I have had over 4,000 visitors to my website.  What a wonderful thing!  I hope I will continue to hold your interest.

This time of the year is a special time, looking forward to the future, travelling to fresh places, and meeting more lovely people.  But it is not quite so happy for some people, who have lost loved ones, or are homeless, so let us spread happiness around the World, and let us help as many as we can.  The old saying is:  "Give a smile, get a smile", and make someone's day a lot happier for them.

BULGARIA - (A January 1st. doll)
Website Id:  (Europe - Bulgaria - 006)

Approximately 18" high (including tall mask).  A January 1st. Festival doll.  Men in Bulgaria (and other countries) are dressed like this to scare away the "dark forces".  The bells these dancers wear are sheep's bells and a real male dancer wears a total weight of 35 kilos of bells to dance with!  Everything about the dance is based on the bells.
His body is plastic which has been covered over with fabric, and his head has been replaced with a mask.

HAPPY DOLL HUNTING FOR 2017, and THANK YOU ALL, once again.
Carole.
