Dollsteachgirls's Blog


About me. I am a Baby boomer aged mom with a married daughter and an 18 year old son still at home. Married for about 27 years…living in the Chicago metro area.

I love fine art (mainly drawing, painting); making doll clothing patterns; and telling history-enriched stories.

Greta (12 years old in 1917) is grandma to Peggy (9 years old in 1957). And Peggy connects Greta to her 6 year old granddaughter Maggie (of 2017) through photos, stories, dolls…doll clothes from different eras…

Let’s see what happens!
