New Arrivals in Dolliver Country

So (!) a great surprise arrived at my door the other day:  two ladies of Minnesota come to stay, and meet their colleagues in the World of Dolliver and Friends.  


They couldn't wait to fight their way out of the package and get into the party.

And here they are, a gangshot of handmade dolls.  I realize I now have a collection, don't know how this happened.  Everything exept Elton and the bigger porcelain doll,  is handmade -- the Ds are home products, the button dolls, new ones and Annies, the porcelain doll, the peasant wooden doll with her basket, the Canadian penny doll, a motley crew if ever there was one.



The Ds made them welcome, and noted that as long as they're the biggest dolls in the house, they're fine with new arrivals.  And Elton serenaded them with Hey, Hey, the Gang's All Here, and a few Bon Jovi and Springsteen hits, to give them the flavor of their new home..ending with that NJ son, Sinatra's I Did It My Way, which the Ds have taken on as their personal motto.


And I can't think of a better way to cheer up a day than to get a box of dolls in the mail!
