Dolls on Facebook, YouTube and Doll Pile

It has been a while, but I am eager to get back to blogging. After a very sad summer, involving more funerals than I care to think of, and a bad bout with summer allergies and asthma, we are back at The Museum, planning projects. We have two talks coming up for local library groups and churches, and at least two book signings and one reading for With Love from Tin Lizzie . . . . We have two new kitten, Mr. Tuxedo and Ms. Bangles. It was an accident, or as a friend put it, "an unplanned pregnancy! :)" They are now three months, and have run us ragged, collapsing on the bed at night in little furry balls to sleep. When they wake up and play tag, they sound like a heard of elephants crashing through the halls. The first thing they did was to find the bag of Emmie Kitty's "mouse doll," all of them: Catnip Rocket Mouse, Doll Mouse, Mme. Le Pomplemouse, Leopard Mouse, etc., about 30 all told. We keep them in a Hello Kitty! bag, of course. T and B were facing each other with kitty toys spilled between them. They were shoving different toys towards each other with paws and noses. I think they were dividing them up. They had such a good time, I didn't have the heart to take them, though I wanted to save Emmie's toys in a glass case, a la FDR and Fala's rubber squeak toys. They won. For those who are cyber minded, you know there are many great groups on collecting dolls and antiques. My favorite is Dolls Antique Dolls Antique, Admin legendary dealer and collector Pat Vallaincourt. There are many others. I also have found some interesing YouTube cites on dolls and doll colecting, and some Pinterest pages. I will list some in this blog with links, and have shared some in my sidebar on in earlier blogs. Here, also is a list for a new, free site, for advetising dolls and related items, called Doll Pile, discovered from my friend, Deb Ritter of Uneek Designs: http://www.dollpile.com/item/1463 Facebook: 1.
