A Day at the Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art







Friday was a fabulous day. My dear friend, Mary (Stivers), and my wonderful husband ,Gregory and I enjoyed our trip up to the Seattle area of Bellevue and had a beautiful time exploring the incredible collection of antique dolls at the Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art. The only pictures of dolls here are those for sale in the gift shop. Note how I have shown TWO pictures with that incredible wooden doll centered. I think she is marvelous.

The lovely lady pictured with the big museum scrapbook is Sigmunde Potgieter who told me that they have in it the clipped article of me as The Doll Maker for The Country Living Artist's Guild! I am so very honored to be in that scrapbook! Of course, I did mention them in the article and that is the primary reason for my being included. And of course I mentioned Rosalie Whyel's museum of dolls because this was my greatest inspiration to become a doll maker. I have to say I was delightfully stunned when Sigmunde recognized me as I walked into that darling little gift shop! And that was how the story unfolded.
