Boots cutouts, December 14, 1941

Thanksgiving is over, and now the Christmas season begins. 
When this Boots paper doll ran in the newspaper on 12/14/41, a tumultuous week in the U.S. passed. Somewhere, a child cut out Boots and her wardrobe, not knowing what was to come next.

Child Life magazine with paper doll, October 1943

 This 80-year-old magazine has seen better days, but it's priceless record of the war years. There's a quiet optimism and a "we're all in this together" spirit that is lovely to read.

Hildur of Sweden, 1932


This is one of 10 dolls from one of my favorite sets,  Dolls of Many Lands, 1932, Whitman. 

I'll be selling my duplicate pages from this set soon. My preference is to sell on one of the Facebook paper doll groups; if it doesn't sell there, I post on eBay.
