*Reader Photos* Large Collection (45 Years)

My name is Susan, I just found Living A Doll's Life. I am in my 70s and have collected dolls for over 45 years. These are photos of my doll scenes Kit's tree house, Molly's theater, Molly's complete bedroom, and my favorite Target 50s Diner which I found thanks to you.

 The hats are made from "In and Out Burger".

I saved the cardboard packing from the OG Diner to extend the flooring.


 For Saige's Art Show I made a lot of the paintings myself.

Molly's Collection.

For Isabelle: a small trunk, two mirrors from the Dollar Store, four wooden letter "U" and two wooden dowels.

The grass is from the Dollar Store, I added fall leaves and made the ladder with Popsicle sticks and rope.

Your husband must be like mine he lives around the dolls and does not mind my passion for them. When he sees a pretty baby he often says they look like a Kestner baby as I also collect antique dolls. Never too old to love and play with dolls. Best Wishes Susan!
