Found in the Basement
I found a box full of my doll collection in the basement. I moved it there because I thought we were going to be painting and just left it down there.
These dolls are my favourites. I bought a dresser at an auction about thirty years ago. The dresser was part of a shipment from Scotland, In the back of a drawer were these beauties wrapped in brown paper. There is a mother. father and a daughter all dressed in their finest clothing. They are made from paper mache.
I have no idea who made them but they have provided me with inspiration for years.
