Look for both my article and Monica Bessette’s about the Izannah Walker exhibit at the Jenny Lind Doll Club in the March 2018 issue of Antique Doll Collector magazine. ❤

I have an update on the articles about the Jenny Lind Doll Club Izannah Walker exhibit. Antique Doll Collector has pushed both my article and Monica Bessette’s to their March 2018 issue, in order to devote more space to them. The March issue should mail to subscribers on 2/22. So no Izzys in February, but lots and lots in March! Click here for information about subscribing to Antique Doll Collector.

Oh Dear! Oh Dear! I’m Late, I’m Late, I’m Late!; Or Why There Isn’t Going to be a Third Thursday Sale in January…

“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”

Good heavens! Only 13 days into the new year and already I’m behind!!! With the third Thursday of the month fast approaching on the 18th, I’ve made an executive decision to dispense with my normal “Third Thursday” release of new dolls and/or clothing in January. The glorious thing about being the CEO, and the entire workforce, of my own little domain is that all arguments for or against policy changes are strictly in my own head… so much quieter that way. 🙂

Actually I am incredibly blessed! I just finished writing another article for Antique Doll Collector magazine on New Year’s Day. At the moment I am currently working on the wardrobes for two dolls that are very anxious to begin their travels to their new homes, plus I have a stack of orders for paper cuttings, patterns, doll kits with custom painted heads, spun cotton ornaments, and more… ❤ What artisan wouldn’t be thrilled to have people buying their wares? ❤

So no “Third Thursday” this month… but who knows… perhaps there will be a special “Pop-Up” Valentine event… ❤

goodbye January Third Thursday…. hello Valentine Pop-Up event???
