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.

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.
