Storyteller Dolls Displayed in Glass Case

Hi Everyone!                                                                                 

Hope you are all doing well this Saturday in winter.                                                                                      
Well, we in the western part of Massachusetts survived the big whopper of a winter snowstorm.                                                  
                                             
  I'd say we got about  a foot of snow so that wasn't too  bad.                                                                                
Just came in from cleaning off the cars while hubs  shoveled walkways.                                                                                                                                  
A neighbor graciously used her snowblower to clean our driveway.                                                                                

She proved, once again, the basic goodness of people when the chips (snowflakes?) are down!                                                     

It's very c-c-c-c-old out and the wind is chilling but we are safe and snug in the house now and the fireplace is calling!              

Now, for today's post:                                                                    
               
                                                                    
 Once, while vacationing in Connecticut near the shore, we stopped at a church gift shop.


I saw the most adorable glass and brass display case.


It cost about $10 and would be a terrific way to display various collections so I bought it on the spot.


Today, it holds storyteller dolls, little clay figures. They are shown with little children, eager to hear stories.

 A more detailed post on them can be found here.http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2010/01/native-american-art-from-clay.html



I love this collection and the pieces  look good in the lovely glass case. 

 Guests are usually quite fascinated with the storytellers.

So happy I found that case as well as collected the many little figures when we lived in the southwest. 



The storytellers are among my favorite collections.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF STORYTELLER DOLLS?

How cute and interesting. Have not heard of the Storytelling Doll's and I bet the story is most interesting to hear!

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: I see on TV in my country the snowstorm that your country is suffering. In Boston people can not go outside. I'm glad you're okay. I had not seen before this collection of dolls storytellers. They are very cute. Keep in touch

My goodness Susan we have this very brass and glass case! When my friend Bea lost her dear friend years ago she gave me many of her lovely things. My son wanted this glass and brass curio case and it displayed his mini bears from many years. It came with a collection of miniature dogs and cats and somewhere I have that safely put away!
Storytelling and dolls caught my eye! I love my dolls and always a good story! Your post was quite delightful! I am glad you are safe and out of the blizzards way. We are getting light snow mixed with rain! Colorado has been snowless most of the winter in the city anyway! Good to see you here and wish you warmth and happiness. HPS! Hugs Anne

You have some marvelous collections, Susan!

Lady Linda said...

Wow, how interesting. I love the whole idea! When I was studying to become a teacher, I actually had to take a class in storytelling! It was fun. We had to practice in front of the class and then we went to a grade school and presented our stories to kids.
The collection is fabulous.

I LOVED seeing your collection! No, I know about Kachinas but not Storytellers. It is so fun to see a grouping of similiar items, even if the collection is not huge. I agree with you, blogland is great :)
Happy week ahead,
Shawn
