The doll is a canvas. If you have a doll from the early 1900's era, dressing her in clothes of that era, or at least in clothes made from fabric of that era is a must. It is wonderful to find a doll in her original clothes, but I discovered, dressing a doll in the clothes I find is much more fun. Sometimes it has taken years for me to find just the right look for one of my dolls.

- The teddy bear dates back to 1902 when the Washington Post published a cartoon depicting President Teddy Roosevelt sparing a bear’s life.
- The first teddy bears were made by a shopkeeper’s wife. The small business they owned went on to become the Ideal Novelty and Toy Company.
- Both new and old bears are collectible, with some of the most desirable and expensive being produced by Steiff.

Keeping heirloom linens clean not only allows you to use them in your home, but protects them from damage.
1. To remove surface dirt and dust, try carefully vacuuming the item on low suction with vents open.
2. Before storing, examine each linen for food and grease that may attract damaging insects or leave permanent stains.

Properly displaying your antique quilts prevents damage while allowing you to enjoy them in your home.
1. Display quilts in areas where light levels are low and away from any bulbs that might damage the fibers.
2. If you decide to hang a quilt in your home, plan to only leave it up for six months at a time.
