Dolls , Haunted Houses and Skellington Manor; Dolls in the 21st Century

Creepy dolls , no ; we at the Museum don't appreciate that whole mess😭 we do love Dolls in all settings, and we love Terror ar Skellington Manor for giving them a home ad props in the best Haunted house ever! The building used to be the Masonic Temple, and the local women's club held an annual antique show there
 My first antique Doll came from that shoe, a frozen Charlotte. How fitting. Now , lots of animatronics and dolls share a home. Here are photos from this year. Thanks to Skellington Manor!!

Ruby Lane Visits The Legacy Doll Museum in Billings, Montana

Pamplona, The Feast of San Fermin, and Dolls

On today's "Rick Steve's Europe," our hero is an Pamplona, for the Running of the Bulls.  He talked about the Feast of St. Fermin,  and showed pictures of the Church of St. Fermin, with its Santo of the revered person himself wearing real clothing and jewelry.  He is an example of a Medieval, Renaissance doll figure still in use for its original purpose.  Also shown in this episode were the gigantic puppets paraded through the streets in a religious procession.  I loved this show because it brought back memories of the time I spent visiting and studying in Spain.  I was privileged to visit there twice, and I think it is my favorite country to explore.
