4 of my critters were selected to be included in Dollirium's "Home Grown Doll Show" in the summer of 2013!!

WOW!  It was quiet a thrill to be included with such amazing doll artists and Cere, Bella, Miss Wix and Devina enjoyed their visit.  

Sadly, in December 2013, Dollirium announced that it will be closing it's physical location and will exist online only for the time being.
