♥♥♥
IMGP6281a1 This year I have had the lucky chance to use the oppor­tu­ni­ty and vis­it the Inter­na­tion­al Doll Fes­ti­val, 01th-08th of May, being hold in Neustadt (Ger­many ) for over then 25 years now. That was an expe­ri­ence of the very spe­cial qual­i­ty. The real feast for all antique and art doll lovers.  All kinds of antique and mod­ern art dolls, cre­at­ed with porce­lain, poly­mer clay, wood and papi­er-mâché has been to be seen and admired.
