Happy Easter 2015

Happy Easter 2015 Wesołych Świąt Wielkanocnych

Happy Easter to all my blog readers. These are some of my pisanki - painted easter eggs. Except the large one, which is a ostrich egg done in Lowicz cut-out style (Wyczynanki). Easter palms in decorated dried flowers and weeds, also pussy willows.

Z okazji nadchodzących Świąt Wielkanocnych wszystkiego najlepszego, zdrowia i radości na co dzień, smacznego wielkanocnego jajka i mokrego Śmigusa-Dyngusa życzy Polish Folk Dolls (blog).

Pinterest and other sites

Today I found ALL my Polish dolls pinned onto someone's Pinterest board - without any credit or reference to my blog site! 

Really people - I've spent over two years doing this blog with taking good pictures and a lot of research. My collection alone took me 30 years to acquire. Then someone steals those images with no acknowledge from where they took it.

There is one person in particular out there - I left comments on her Pinterest board under several of MY doll pictures (she took all my dolls) - only so others know where these pictures came from. If you are going to use my images - GIVE CREDIT!

Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year!

   While I have been busy with a new job and some personal commitments, my doll blog has been neglected so to speak. I have not posted more dolls, no new ones were found. So little time to hunt for them. I think my collection is 'full' and also I have no room for more. I have almost 200 Polish folk and historical dolls, which are quite a lot. They are all on this blog, with a few broken ones not shown (need to be fixed, mended or thrown away).

    I may still post some information on a particular region from time to time, so I will not completely disappear yet. Sorry to be tardy with this, I just have less time then I would like now days.
   To my fellow doll collectors, I wish you all the best in the New Year, and may you find many new dolls in the coming year!
