Dolls! Dolls! Dolls!

Ms. Peggie's Place has dolls, lots and lots of beautifully finished creations to add dazzle and sparkle to your project.You'll find looking at their intricate details fascinating as well as fun. There are so many dolls that it's impossible to picture them all here. You'll just have to come in and take a look! Over the next few months we will continue to show off this beautiful collection in the context of holidays, seasons, etc.

This lady seems to have a lot to say!
It's a good thing her friend has come along to chat with her.
Notice the bustle and the fancy hairstyle.

An 1890s lady, complete with flowers in her hat.
Pure elegance.

One of the fanciest ladies around!
Baubles, bangles and beads contribute to the beauty of many of these figurines. Facial expressions make them come to life. Not all are joyous.
Notice the facial scarring.

Mother and baby.

One of the most glamorous of all.

Here's another small sample of the dolls and where they hang out.

We'll look forward to seeing you soon!

Halloween Dolls and everything else

Please join us as we introduce you to our dolls set for Halloween, along with other holiday props to intrigue and mystify you. Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! There's a hand in a drawer, and magical potions to aid those in the spell casting business. You can bet that there's a black cat hidden with the Halloween treasures as well.

The witch guards our Halloween shelf where you will find a large selection of Halloween favorites. She's a figure not to be mistaken with any other, complete with all black attire, a big statement making hat and a flying broom. She's scary, but not too scary. Perhaps you can compare her to certain amusement park rides that take you to the edge of fright, but never quite go over it.

Other costumed characters will catch your eye. We are showing them here in the guise of a Halloween masquerade, but it would be a simple matter to assign them roles in "Peter Pan" or a similar tale. Two tough-looking pirates, complete with parrots on their respective shoulders look ready to protect their pirate ships or maybe just ask for a trick-or-treat.

Enjoy the butterfly catcher, and a wizard whose accessories will reinforce all the good you've heard about such characters. He's not scary, but oh, so magical. There's a clown who will charm you. All these dolls are carefully detailed. The butterfly catcher comes complete with a flowery hat with butterflies upon it, a net with a butterfly in it and tools and a jar to collect the butterflies.

The carrot topped clown sports long hair and a big red nose and gaily decorated clothing. Perhaps he's on his way to visit the wizard, a fantastic figure with all kinds of accessories to perform his magic. And when he leaves, there's a coat rack with his outer garment waiting for him.

Please join us during this colorful season and see what else you can find!

The Joys of Summer!

Warm, welcoming summer is finally here. After the brutal winter experienced in so much of the country, even our own San Diego,  the higher temps and bright sun are an appreciated start to the season.  The annual Ms. Peggie's Place yard sale kicked off summer in late June for many of our friends, old and new. Some visitors knew just what they were looking for while others came for a taste of what was offered.
There was something for everyone.
Books and magazines
Friendly check-out clerks!
No one shops hungry here!

June ended and July came in with a burst of  fireworks and all that is fun about summer. Thoughts of picnics and barbecues, visits to the beach or pool, visiting friends and family and just having a good time are the season's trademarks.
