August Sneak Peek!!

I love August, season of doll shows and dog days of summer!  This month's lavish and beautiful issue is sure to delight.  Below are some highlights, along with our usual auction reports, show and auction announcements, and more.  Check us on our other social media sites, too, including Tumblr, Flickr, Twitter, and YouTube.  We are also shared through ISSUU, Reddit,  Facebook, Pinterest  Instagram and Deliciious.  I will post links, later.  We are also featured on blogs I translate into Greek, Spanish, and Japanese.  I'm happy to post or send links to anyone interested.  Email me at ellentsagaris@gmail.com.


First of all, we have Part II of a fantastic collection of Lenci, with dolls many of us have never seen.  If you have been to Italy and looked for dolls there, you will really appreciate this piece.  I have great mother\daughter childhood memories of running around the shops in Rome looking for dolls. Enjoy!


Next, we have a great piece on Russian Nesting Dolls that have become iconic, yet as varied as any other type of doll can become.  Read this fascination history of how they began, and how they have evolved.


Antique doll collectors are always looking for ways to display and accessorize their dolls.  Here is a lovely article about using gorgeous antique boxes as props and accessories.  We get to discover another great collectible, accessorize our dolls, and repurpose and renew!


No doll or person can ever have too many clothes!  Read this terrific article focusing on an antique doll and her wardrobe.  I'm very fond of her trousseau because it reminds me of a similar one my mother created for my first two china heads.   Seeing this dresses will inspire you, and you will want to sew for your dolls, too!


Happy Collecting!!
