Day 144 - Enchanted Doll Museum

I visited the Enchanted Doll Museum in Baton Rouge, LA

rain 60 °F

Today we drove to Baton Rouge. There were several interesting places to see (lots of plantation homes). We did not go to much as we are expected at my nephew's place in Lake Jackson, Texas on Friday.

However, while Jeanette was on the computer looking for a shop that could repair our propane connection, I went to the Enchanted Mansion Doll Museum. The ladies there were very sweet and had delightful Louisiana accents. A big (4') tall teddy bear introduced me to the museum and a talking clock also welcomed me. I passed through a my size doll house front and door into a room full of glassed in cases of dolls, big and small. Then there was a small room of story book dolls; Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, etc. Then I went into a room of President and First Lady dolls. There was a room full dedicated to African American dolls because February is Black History Month. The last room had a large collection of lovely, old dolls.

The gift shop was full of more beautiful dolls. Very expensive. I got three post cards for the school and we drove on to Lafayette and stopped for supper. Then we drove to a campground on the road to Avery Island, where we will go tomorrow.

It sounds like a museum after your own heart, Mom. Were there any paper dolls? which dolls did you like best? It sounds like a well planned out museum. did you get any ideas for your paperdoll museum?

They did not have paper dolls. I liked the baby dolls the best. Yes, it was nice to see what could be done with a paper doll collection if I had a building...

Interesting. I assume you didn't know that Robert has been in Baton Rouge all this week. I got an e-mail from him Monday night thata he'd be there the rest of the week and would not be reading e-mail. But it sounds as if you plan to get to his place tomorrow, maybe about the same time he will. Of course, Kathy is there too. I hope you have a very good time there.

Actually we talked with him before he left, so we knew we'd be crossing paths slightly in Baton Rouge. However, we should be to their place Friday night, so didn't try to also meet up with him in Baton Rouge. Probably a good thing as our schedule got kind of compressed with the delay working on the propane problem. We're looking forward to visiting them this weekend however.
