Postcard from the Provence, Dolls and Antique Toys

It's been ten years since we first started to visit La Provence,
and there are still places we haven't seen or visited yet!
I knew there was a museum of dolls and toys in l'Isle,
but I have only seen it from the outside
until I found this video on You Tube,
This museum is on my list of things to do on a rainy day from now on!

I'm sorry the video is in French,
but it's still very much worth watching
because it shows gorgeous dolls and toys!

Basicly what the lady says in the interview is
that the museum was born out of the passion a one single woman,
a collector with a huge love for dolls.
The museum has about 250 dolls on display.
80% of them were restored by her using only original materials.
She refused to use anything but old laces and fabrics.

I really want to visit this museum,
and I hope to come back with loads of pretty doll pictures!
