My Photo

about me

  • I am a dollmaker. I love antique fabrics and hoard them. I collect old china doll heads without bodies and leather doll bodies without heads and never put them together. I have stacks of old photos of people I don't know. I have two smart and funny kids who complain that I hang plates on the wall instead of pictures. I have a great husband who travels with me and who I used to garden with but now don't because all I do is make dolls. Luckily he still likes me. So all in all somewhat normal ...depending , of course, on who you ask.

Hi Nic !
How wonderful all your "Friends" look together . . and I can truly identify with the gal whose paint is "worn off one side" !
Your blog makes me smile . . .

I just have to ask where do you find all the lovely doll heads?
Do people send your way, do you do ebay or do they just fly into your home. I love em!


Love your displays!I can see your passion for your ART!
Thats great!

I only have one china doll. She was a gift from my aunt when I was young. My mother made a beautiful pink dotted swiss dress for her.
She had her head stepped on and glued back together. Her dress is a bit faded. She's no longer perfect, but is displayed proudly in my dining room along with some other childhood friends.
You have a wonderful collection of old friends.

Enchanting! You are a marvel, Nicol. I have never seen such a lovely display of antique doll heads. These precious friends nest beautifully and stand proudly under glass and I believe this is how you perceive each and every one of your living and breathing friends, with reverence and care.
Thank you for your world of beauty, dear and very beautiful, Nicol.
