A Valentine dress

Does anyone else use bits and pieces of cut sets to make greeting cards? What exactly do Sandy Vanderpool and Bev Micucci have in store for us in Phoenix? Stay tuned!

Register here for the April 16 Morgantown PA Paper Doll Luncheon!

Think spring and Morgantown! 

Our theme this year: The Sweep of the Skirt in History.

I'm looking forward to seeing some fabulous skirts on April 16.*

*Dress-up is not required, of course, but if you're so inspired, don that mini- or maxi-skirt -- or kilt -- and join us for a day of paper doll fun!

Glamour Girl buttons by Harvey Chalmers & Sons, Inc.

I love old store stock.

There is quite an array of Chalmers button cards on Pinterest. Lovely artwork!

David Wolfe's Paperdollywood Blog

I can't think of a better way to beat the winter blues than by catching up with David Wolfe on his new blog. Not only does he fill us in on his travels (such as to the Jamaica Flower Market in Mexico City), but he gives us his thoughts on recent museum exhibits, fashion trends, and new paper dolls, by him and other artists. He has a wonderful roundup of Christmas windows in New York City and London department stores.

Of special interest to Paper Collector fans: Dolce & Gabbana's line for Spring 2016 has designs inspired by antique postcards!
