It was my mom, Fran's, birthday this weekend and I traveled up to Sonora to help her bring in the new year.  I told her that we were doing something special.  We were going to feature Fran and highlights of her HUGE doll collection in this blog.  I know that you won't be disappointed not seeing scenes from vintage stores, because her doll collection is truly amazing.  She has dolls from most eras and and has made sure that each and every one is dressed in the most adorable outfits.

Since Fran is in her golden years (she won't let me say how old/young she is), she wants to part with some of her collection.  I know that some of you out there are doll collectors, too.  Maybe you won't admit it to your friends, but I know that you are out there.  I admit that I have a collection of my own.  I try to keep it in check, but can't always resist an addition to the group.  This weekend, I brought back a Revlon doll dressed in a knitted 1960's mini dress, a 1950's Shirley Temple doll and my Raggedly Ann from my childhood.  I must also say that Fran is not computer friendly, but she does have a phone number and actually answers it and you can also email me and I will pass on the information to Fran.  See our contact information below.  Enjoy!
