As you see in these winter scenes. January brought some unexpected heavy snow in all parts of England I have also included a picture of “Pasha” my new kitten sitting comfortably with his best friend “Scoot”, looking the snow in our garden. Pasha couldn’t wait to get into the snow for the first time!
At this time of year we are all looking forward to the Spring, and with this in mind, going out and about looking for our bargains. Many of us find our collectables at doll fairs and shops or through friends. There are plenty of Museums to visit which open in April. Rustington Museum in West Sussex would be a nice choice for anyone interested in seeing a lovely display of Old Cottage Dolls.
This issue has interesting features of our early English wooden dolls, a unique collection of miniature dolls’ prams, Barbie’s Theatre, new look porcelain dolls and pictures of a vintage pack of Golly playing cards and much more.
Hope you will enjoy this issue as I found it very interesting putting all the articles together.
