Hope you all had a good summer. This year our laburnum tree displayed a beautiful array of yellow flowers, unfortunately, they disappear very quickly………….just like the summer!
Some people have all the luck in the world when they have a special find, Colette Mansell, certainly did in finding her Heubach doll. Perhaps you had a lucky find at one time, and if so, I would like to hear about this. It is interesting to know about the Suffragette movement and Constance King’s knowledge on this subject tells us about an interesting wax doll belonging to a lady from that particular time.
To be or not to be, the fortune telling doll has arrived on page 8! Hope the rest of this year will be lucky for you too!
