Old but yet Always Some Thing New

I was emailing a doll friend, Sharing with her a couple of my old had for ever ,but could not do with out doll books. So thought I'd share with you all also.
These are  OLD books I have kept for years and use lots, you might be interested..
I don’t know how long they will be in print..
I have been making dolls, over 18 years, yet I still use and reuse info from my doll books, No matter what doll I am working on.
Couple years ago I down sized , and had to turn around and buy a couple of my favorites back, Because I missed them, Now believe me what I do have are mine for ever! Big Smile*
Don't think just because your happily growing in your skills, talent, that you don't need the goodies but oldies any more, They still amaze and teach you, Hope you enjoy
