It's a wrap...

I belong to a number of groups from painting to antiques.  Last evening we had our last meeting of the Canadian Antique and Collectors group.  The presentation was on "Door of Hope Dolls".  Who knew these existed.  I often watch Antiques Road Show, when I'm ironing".  Never have I seen these treasures.  What an interesting history, and unfortunate history, but interesting.  So I came home and googled...
You'll never believe how much this is on e bay for. Upwards of 8,000. It was obvious that the presenter/collector was passionate about her collection, but she also had a bag of money.  While I'm not much of a collector of any particular item,  it's really an expensive obsession.  I love the historical portion of this creation, but, I'm sure I won't come into contact with any of these creations. 

Over the summer, my main focus is to reduce my collections.  Downsizing as they say,  I'm not so successful at this task, but I'll keep trying.

Wow, that's a lot of money, but it is an impressive piece. My mom was a doll collector.

Downsizing is liberating, dear Irene! I did a lot of that last summer. In the heat and humidity. So I support and encourage you in that momentous decision and wish you bon chance! I need to look up Door of Hope Dolls. The one pictured is very pretty. xoxo
