We will be adding photos, beginning with ancient dolls, as an annexe to the museum; visit us on Facebook, Dr. E's Doll Museum, and on Twitter @Dr. E's Doll Museum.

About.com Free Newsletter Week of Sept. 14th
Fall is Nearly Here! Newsletter Week of Sept. 14th
week has come and gone in our doll collecting family. 9/11 passed
quietly for the most part. One odd occurrence was that on 9/11, I wrote
my 911th post on my personal blog, Dr. E's Doll Museum, about 911.
Halloween decorations are appearing everywhere and our friends at
Jackson's held their annual open house, where I bought a terracotta
ghost by Jackson Pottery. This week, we plug in our poppets for a crash
course in how social media can aid doll collectors, review dolls
inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and plan for how to protect our dolls
from damp. My thanks to Haier for mentioning me on Twitter by the way!
Calling all folk doll collectors; if you have photos of nut dolls, corn
husk dolls, dried apple dolls, or other dolls made of fruits, nuts, and
vegetables, send photos so we can do a gallery of Harvest Dollies!
Ingalls Wilder, Dolls, and Pioneer Life just go together. Read about
special programs on her at The Hoover Presidential Library, as well as
about dolls and memorabilia inspired by The Little House Books.
dehumidifiers are good choices for protecting your dolls from damp and
mold. Over the years, I think I've become an expert at doll triage and
damage control. Read more about how dehumidifiers can help your dolls.
