DOLLS FROM MEXICO

Today I am listing three of my new unusual MEXICAN dolls.  I have more beautiful hand made Mexican dolls, and also Guatemala dolls to list, time permitting!
I also have some really nice dolls from other countries, looking not so patiently at me, wondering when I am going to give them a place on my website.  They are getting more impatient by the day!

I am extremely busy at the moment, so it is difficult to find the time to catalogue dolls, which I must do before I list them here on my blog.  Where on Earth does the time go to?

For more pictures, and information about these dolls, please see my website.  Thank you.
