What beautiful dolls! I just recently began really looking into the mini collecting - my grandmother in Florida got me hooked (she has a dollhouse of her own). I just wanted to complement you on your beautiful craftsmanship! Something I wish I could learn some day. Thank you for sharing your gift. Also I was sooo happy to see your Japanese style dolls - do you know how hard they are to come by!??? I have been looking for that size and quality for MONTHS! I have an Asian Tea Room I want to do and have been looking for a traditional doll to set inside. Beautiful! I have you bookmarked and will definately keep you in mind. Thanks again. - Christine Smith

Hi Connie!, I had a wonderful time seeing your dolls and miniatures. They're greatest. I'm from Spain and I'm very fond of miniatures since my childhood. Now, I'm 40 and started to built my dollshouse with my brother in low's help. It's the most fantastic experience I've never had and I'm very proud of it. But I'm only a green.So I'm impressed with your fantastic job, it's really good. I found out this site in a nice magazine from my country called "Miniaturas". I hope you continue making so cute and excellent pieces. Greatings from Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Isabel

Dear Connie, I have spent several hours looking at your work and could spend hours more! I love the progressive photos which we all should be taking of our projects. It helped to see how the miniature houses and roomboxes were done. I'm amazed at the detail and the wonderfully expressive dolls you've made. Molly touched my heart, and Niki showed why I don't have a kitty. Thanks for a wonderful trip into fantasy land. See you on Stuff_Small Digest. Donna Blackman.

I have just spent 2 hours in visiting this fabulous site ! Your achievements are superb and I admire your dexterity. I'm a beginner in the immense world of miniatures and made some roomboxes not as elaborate as yours, but I'm pretty proud of them and more particularly of my painted pieces of furniture. If you have a little time to lose, you can visit my little site at this address : Thank you again for showing all your photos on a site. Bye.

Hi Connie, I found your site by accident and I'm real happy I did. One word springs to mind. Brilliant. Have put you in my favourites. mini hugs Pam (from Bacup, England)

Hi I like ur site i got a pic of one of ur dolls for my book report

Anna <>

You have great talent. You bring the faces of your dolls to life. Anytime your dad wants to built a house for me let me know.....Because of Jesus,Debbie Gateley

Debbie Gateley <>

You have such great talents! I think your dolls are some of the best I have seen so far. At first when I saw them, I thought the dolls are of bigger sizes. But then, after I read the writings on your site, I found they are of 1/12" scale! You are really talented to have made them with such facial expressions especially when they are so very small. I wish it needn't have to take 1 year for your dolls to be made after ordering. I am very keen in getting Laura Ingles and Anne with the SAtchel. Pls let me know if the time to make them can be reduced? THanks!
