I head to Kansas City tomorrow morning, can't wait to see everyone.

Couldn't make it this year? There's still time to order absentee souvenirs!

The 2019 convention souvenirs look even more spectacular than I anticipated. Inside these 9 books are 64 pages of paper dolls!! Plus 3 super cool menus not shown here. Absentee packs are still available! To get all these amazing souvenir paper doll books and more, send $110 to convention host: Pat O'Rourke, 12 Horseshoe Falls Dr., Ormond Beach, FL 32174.

Alice Faye paper doll, Merrill Pub. 1941


Lovely illustration of Alice Faye in this paper doll set... by the artist Norman Mingo, famous for creating the image of Alfred E. Neuman, the great mascot of Mad Magazine, which I adored when I was a kid. This was another one of my purchases from the Morgantown sales room last month.

This is one of my favorite paper doll series: My smallest doll's room. I also have the fishery--every small doll should have it's own fishery! Germany, ca. 1920s.
