Morgantown Luncheon, 2018


Well another swell party has come to an end! I've posted a few pictures on our Facebook group page.  As time permits, I'll post a few here, too.
I'll let you know as soon as we have a date for next year's event.
Meanwhile, The Seattle Paper Doll Convention is a mere three months away!

Dell paper doll, The Delineator, April 1921


The robe! and that doll! Kudos to the artist who gave the doll a very distinctive look.

I like the detail of having one foot in the robe pocket, too. That red hat is not a sleeping cap; it goes with another outfit that I will post later.

We are two weeks away from Morgantown! Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Barbara Ann by Viv, 1954


A cozy robe for a snowy Wednesday.

I bought a few of these cut Hallmark paper doll cards on eBay last year. Thanks to Teri Pettit, I know this is Barbara Ann by Viv, 1954.

Teri's website is exceptional: She gives you the formats to print out copies of paper dolls from her collection.

Here's a sample of a Barbara Ann page from her website. Click here for more: Teri Pettit.

Amy Magic Doll box

Amy Magic Doll, 1965, Whitman


"Her clothes stay on without tabs!"
"Amy stands up in her own plastic base"

That's the copy on the box -- I can't scan it without squashing it -- will try to take a pic later.

I had this one when I was a kid -- loved the static cling effect -- and bought it partly cut on eBay, which allows me to cut and play with it. Feel free to copy her and put tabs on her pajamas.
