Dolls! Oh, Well, Tis the Season!

Doll Spoofs, Antiques, Preserving Dolls, Baby Dear and Seasons Greetings!
Christmas is finally here and Hanukkah is behind us; the holidays are in full swing! Theriault's will hold another Rendezvous, and Santa is having his sleigh checked out.  Now is the time to look for holiday dolls and figures; many stores, new and thrift, are putting Christmas items on sale already!  If you don't find that doll you want under the tree,  you can find look for it at the after Christmas sales. Do you have New Year's resolutions for your collections?  I would love to hear them and will gladly post them.  I will  write more posts on holiday dolls through the 12 Days of Christmas, and hope to hear from all of you.  See us on Pinterest for All About Doll Collecting, and on my Facebook page, Dr. E's Doll Museum.  Happy Holidays!
