George and Martha Washington Cut-Outs.

February 19, 1922.  Celebrate George Washington's birthday with these cut-outs of Martha and George.  I have ancestors that lived in Virginia, now West Virginia, that are in many records with George Washington back when he was a very young surveyor.  A brother of one of my great-greats was Washington's chain-carrier.

BRENDA STARR's Weekend Wardrobe 1941

July 6, 1941.  I hope you enjoy BRENDA STARR and Her Weekend Wardrobe.

I am so mad at my cats.  About three months ago they jumped up on the desk and knocked my printer/scanner off and broke it.  It was just a very cheap HP model that only cost $19 but it made great copies and the scanner worked fine.  So I decided to buy a more expensive model thinking it would make even better copies and scans - wrong!  It prints okay but is a terrible scanner.  I will have a very clean black and white paper doll then when I scan it all the details become black blobs.  Drat those darn cats!!

Spring Costumes for Miss Paper Doll.


April 26, 1908.  I copied this paper doll in black & white and in color.  The color one shows more detail but the b&w copy is cleaner.  This paper doll has a boyfriend that I found in 2 different newspapers but neither paper doll was clear enough to copy.  I hope you enjoy "Spring Costumes for Miss Paper Doll".

Just a Girl and her Platform Shoes, 1973.

September 2, 1973.  This paper doll was drawn by Jackie DeRosa and was used in a newspaper article about how colorful Fall fashions were going to be that year.  The article said to color this paper doll's clothing in bright colors.  I was a preteen in 1973 and if the Houston Post had printed this doll I would have had my crayolas and scissors in hand.  This paper doll, like the teenagers and young women I knew in the 1970's, is funny, zany and, refreshingly, nary a profane word drops from her lips.

DOTTY DIMPLE by Dan Rudolph.

March 11, 1923.  Here is Dotty Dimple, a paper doll by Dan Rudolph.

I don't like to use my blog to talk politics but I do have something I have to say.  If you have followed my blogs, Mostly Paper Dolls and Mostly Paper Dolls Too, then you would probably know that I am a conservative Republican.  I am so tired of nasty celebrities and nasty liberals, especially women, calling decent people like me all kinds of horrible names.  Talk about a bunch of bullies.  I never voted for Bill or Barack  but when they were elected I accepted each as president and prayed for them and for the Country I love.  These people need to quit acting like spoiled children.  GOD Bless America and GOD Bless President Trump.
