Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Doll!!I would like to let everyone know that I am writing fairly regularly for the R. John Wright Design Blog and for Ruby Lane. I also am doing some small descriptions for the dolls on Ruby Lane, and will soon be doing columns and more articles for our beloved ADC magazines. My articles for Doll Collecting at About.com, but my vertical was discontinued, so my content will appear on RJW's amazing site or on my blogs, Ruby Lane, and ADC. You can find me on Flickr,as etquest and Antique Doll Reader magazine, and this blog is being translated through Word and Google into Greek, Spanish, and Japanese. I should have one or two more doll books ready to go to the publisher, as well.
Also, look for me or Antique Doll Collector Magazine on Twitter, Reddit, Delicious, Instagram, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, and Snapchat [As soon as I can figure it out!!] I have also done a post or to for Michele at Tonner.
I want to thank with all my heart the folks at Antique Doll Collector Magazine, R. John Wright and R. John Wright Dolls, Rachel Hoffman and Turn of the Century Antiques, Ruby Lane, Michele at Tonner, Christie Donnelly my former general manager at About.com, and my wonderful doll friends, Mikki Brantley, Mr. R.

If I've left anyone out, I apologize, but you live in my heart. Dolls are a huge part of our lives, and are among the most important of cultural artifacts! If the world could share dolls, and through them, our cultures, hopes, and dreams, we would all live in a more peaceful world!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Peace in 2017!! Let's make it the Year of the Doll!!
