Furthermore... she continued about the award...


She peered at me. There is someone we think needs recognition. (I smiled inside)

This is the first "Rosetta Stone Award". It is given to a dollhouse blogger who has contributed greatly to the information of dollhouse history.

As we all know dollhouses were originally the hobby of rich women or tools to teach girl children to keep house.

Today women all over the world are interested in them. Note the number of bloggers and that Dollhouse blogs are a world unto themselves. Though these houses started as toys and may have led a perilous life, once they are in the harbor of the collector they have a story to tell. This award is to acknowledge the sleuthing it takes to discover that story.

Furthermore this award is issued to only one person, must be kept for 6 months then passed on to another worthy recipient. There are many worthy of this award... (I smiled again)... and this year we are bestowing it on... Rebecca of Rebecca's Collections for her serious and valuable work on English dollhouses.

Well I must say the Board showed great judgement in choosing Rebecca to receive this award. She approaches her topics like a scholar. Congrats, Rebecca... I do hope they say thank you though...:) CM

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate the honour of being the first recipient of this newly created award very much - please thank the Board members on my behalf very much :-)
I like the conditions of the award too - 6 months to consider who to pass it on to is a great idea.

ps I wonder what your dolls will come up with next? I bet you don't know either yet ;-)

Hooray! The award was a crowd pleaser, and rightly so! The dolls have been VERY sweet and I appreciate them, but really... they don't say much. ;-). CM
