About Me

My photo
Hello from Mary in Atlanta, Georgia... I'm a dollmaker and happy gramma to a dear little near-four-year-old granddaughter. I want to showcase here great dolls and softies from other artists as well as my own stuff. My main interest lies with vintage cloth dolls that our frugal earlier mothers made for their children--women who often did not possess the financial means or even transportation to indulge "boughten" dolls and toys. In this endeavor I've been heavily influenced by master dollmaker Gail Wilson of Gail Wilson Designs.
