Sunday marked the final day of The Dolls House exhibition. Yesterday and today the dolls are being packed up in their boxes, ready for transport back to their owners. It was a great exhibition and we’re sad to see it go. But tomorrow is a new day (as is today) and we’re looking forward to our next exhibition, Circles of Life – Mandala Magic by Karen Scott and her students.
But today, I wanted to share with you an interesting adventure that happened during the Dolls House.
A young girl, around 11 or so, came in with her grandmother and her younger sister, clutching a bag to her chest. She said that she’d found a doll with a broken foot in her neighbour’s Hard Rubbish pile on the front lawn, and her neighbour said she could have it. The girl named her new doll Chelsea, but nobody knew anything about the doll, and this young girl was wondering if we could help her identify it.
