RuthAgle-AuthorGreetings!

My name is Ruth, I’m a recent – how the time flies! – transplant to a small town in Iowa, having lived here for the past six nine years. I’ve been collecting dolls of all ages ever since I learned that a mere mortal could actually own these wonderful pieces of history, but my main passion is composition dolls from the 1920s and ’30s.

My goal when I receive a well-loved doll is never to make them perfect or like new. For example, I don’t own an airbrush. To me, completely airbrushing a doll would be like stripping and refinishing a fine antique piece of furniture. (I can hear those twin brothers on “Antiques Roadshow” throwing up their hands in horror.) When it comes to dolls, I would be their triplet.

When I repair them their history still shows. And when I make dresses for them, I use old fabrics and trims and even make little leather shoes to match. I make patterns myself for each little girl and use them only once, and I let the doll herself tell me what they want to wear. I’ve sold dolls under the names “adamsmom1” and “magic_elizabeth” on ebay and they did quite well.

Throughout my life I’ve frequently been told that I’d be a good writer. Why not combine two of my loves, writing and dolls? This series of books is all about restoring. Restoring love, restoring life, restoring dolls, and most of all, restoring the Magic of Childhood.

    Hi, Ruth! I’m writing an article for my website about Sears houses in children’s books and happened to stumble across your website. Can you please contact me through sears-homes.com ?

  3. Ruth..i saw a Hazel doll that was wearing a brown flowered 1700s era dress with fabric remarkable similar to Claires dress on Outlander. Where did you find the fabric? I was working on several dresses from the series and am stumped by this fabric. Let me know how you got it!! Also would love to meet up with you..i live in NW Missouri! Thanks jsvibe@gmail.com

    That Safari outfit is FABULOUS…Do you sell any outfits? I have several Anne Shirley’s screaming for it…..

    Greetings, Joy! I LOVE Anne Shirleys! If I were faster at sewing, you BET I would sell them! Unfortunately if I did, they’d cost a GAZILLION dollars, because I take so very long. However! You can go to my videos on YouTube (search Hazel Twigg), and I tell you how you can easily make clothes yourself – without having to buy any patterns! And I bet you’d be faster than ME.

    Cheers and thanks!

    Ruth
