Greetings!

Rumors of my being stuffed in a rocket and launched to the moon are greatly exaggerated.

 

I hope all our US members had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

 

And now we turn to the impending holiday crush:

 

You may find things that would be perfect gifts for friends and relatives, but aren't perfect themselves. They need a gentle cleaning, a small repair - whatever.

 

I can help. Post your questions here, and let's see what we can do to help upgrade your gifts.

Victoria Way ~ Thanks so much for your kind comments. I was able to tell Avalon Rose what I wanted and she did an incredible job of putting my thoughts and ideas on my website. She's very talented in creating pretty websites. The name of the company is on the bottom of my website.

I will do my best to get my doll pic up; I would love to hear what you think she's worth. Ciao! Rita @ TesoroFino.com

Rita,
I love your website. It is wonderfully done, and like the old skelton key to open your site. The company that does your website, does a great job. I am also in the doll club and a doll appraiser, so I can't wait to see your doll either.

Received an email this morning from a customer:
"I have antique kitchenware that runs the gamut between butter paddles, whisks, scales, crocks, coffee mils, and so on..they have been displayed on top of my cabinets in the kitchen..so..grease has accumulated on them all..I try and clean them, but they remain sticky to the touch, any idea how to clean them up without taking all the stain or whatever off..thanks for any help you can give me..pj"
Any ideas?

See ya, Country Joe

Rita,
The individual who posted about being a doll doctor is not me. It's dolldockrisneal. Kris is the person who started the new group.

Oh, Judith, I cannot wait to take a pic of my doll and wee what you can tell me about it! Very excited! Rita @ TesoroFino.com

We have started a new group devoted to antique and collectible dolls. Iam a doll doctor and will be discussing doll restoration as well as many different doll topics. I hope you will check it out.
