Welcome to my museum blog. This blog is about the process of creating a doll museum, first in web form, then as a brick-and-mortar attraction. I have collected, made, written about dolls and doll-related items since I was three years-old. The pieces in my collection range from ancient ritual figures to modern robotic toys. They include fashion dolls, Santos, collectors dolls antiques, folk dolls, craft dolls, paper dolls, figurines, toy soldiers, sculptures, photographs, books, related memorabilia, and letters from others known in the world of dolls and antiques My collection is one of the most unique in the world. It is also one of the largest private collections. I have reached the point where I would like to share it with others. I will be posting photographs of some of the items in the collection. I am not a dealer; I am not interested in commercial gain and am in the process of forming a nonprofit corporation on behalf of the museum. I am interested in hearing from others who enjoy writing about the history of dolls and toys and who enjoy collecting them for their own sake.
