Impressions from Musée de la Poupée in Paris

Several years ago, and just at the beginnings of the leggybuddy story, I have discovered this little museum in a very modest looking building. You could not tell from the outside the hidden treasure it holds.
There was a beautiful collection of dolls from all over the world and from different periods, lovely made doll clothes and costumes. Doll jewelry made from "real" material and not plastic like it is mostly the case today. I have admired the care and with much love to detail made accessories and dollhouse furniture.
Things are sadly not made this way anymore.

Recently, I have learned from the article of the Parisian blogger Vanessa Grall www.messynessychic.com that the museum has closed last year. Real pitty! 
If you like to discover places like this yourself and are often in Paris I can recommend you her book Don't be a tourist in Paris, which is full of hidden gems and curiosities.
