I’m so pleased to announce that I have been juried into the Early American Life Directory of Traditional Craftsmen for the 40th time! It’s an incredible honor to be included with such a prestigious group of artisans. Thank you Early American Life!
It’s been a busy summer here, so I’m a bit later than usual in mentioning the Craftsman Directory. I’m sure you all know how that goes… but today I am slowing down a bit and spending the afternoon reading in honor of Book Lovers Day. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and enjoying a few long, lazy, laid back days filled with dolls, good books and dear friends ❤
This little doll is turning into quite a traveler ❤ She just returned from the 2018 Early American Life Craftsman Directory photo shoot, and in the morning she is leaving for her new home… Safe travels ❤
Look what just came! The latest issue of Antique Doll Collector magazine, with my article about the Izannah Walker exhibit that I curated for the Jenny Lind Doll Show in October, AND a wonderful article, by Izannah Walker historian, Monica Bessette about six Walker dolls that she visited while doing research for her new book!

I have an article about the Izannah Walker exhibit that I curated at the Jenny Lind Doll Show last October in the March issue of Antique Doll Collector. Here is a sneak peek of the cover and contents page. The magazine should start mailing to subscribers on 2/22 and be for sale at Barnes and Noble in early March. ❤ Well known Izannah Walker biographer, Monica Bessette, has written a companion article entitled Izannah Dreams, also in the March issue. I can’t wait to read it!
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.
