    1. I agree Maxine and Hope-Faith. Collecting has really helped me to focus more on family and getting back to traditions that should not be forgotten. So glad that I met all of you through blogging.

      Rhonda, you are a real jewel and I am glad to know a special person like you. This year will be a tough one knowing that LADL will end, but you always will have a friend to turn to whenever you need one.

  12. Well, I'm sad to hear it--but completely understand. Thank you for sharing all of your dolls with all of us over the years. My girls and I have always enjoyed checking in to find the latest news, see the fantastic photos and get awesome doll craft ideas and sharing our own doll fun. It has truly brought us closer together as we shared our love of dolls and doll fun and we will miss tuning in to LADL! Thank you for that--and all the best in your final year! :)
