Sometimes I get questions from you guys about various things, and I try to respond directly to you. But I thought maybe it was time to do a question/answer sort of thing here, if anybody has any questions they haven't asked me before! It can be about anything- my collections, my artwork, my kids, my book, thrift-shopping (I'm an expert, if I do say so myself!), Avery's vintage clothes, my studio, my house, etc. I always enjoy reading these sorts of posts on other blogs, so thought you may enjoy it here!
I'll start the ball rolling with this question from Kortney. (Kortney, I didn't have a way to respond directly to you, so I'll post your question here...) She asked:
Where do you find all your dolls and doll goodies. After 20long years my husband and I had our beautiful baby girl. She is 4 now and loves vintage things and babiy doll. I have Bren looking for vintage dolls for her room but I can't find any. Do you have any hints?
*I'd say about half of the vintage dolls I have are from when I was young. My sisters, mother, and I used to "collect dolls", and I held onto the ones that were the nicer ones. The others I've gotten from mostly antique stores and Ebay. I really don't consider myself a serious doll collector, but I do pick up ones that I think are cute from time to time. Vintage dolls can be so expensive, and I don't even want to get serious, because I don't have enough money!
So, ask away! I'd love to see what you guys are wondering!
