Dress You Up

When I was a little girl, I loved playing with paper dolls. I would get them all dressed up and then...undress them and dress them up again. Much like my Barbies, my paper dolls didn't do very much or go anywhere in particular. It was all about the outfits, which they were perfectly content to just stand around and pose in for hours on end.

My love of paper dolls hasn't really waned in my adult years. I am still delighted by them, and not above buying them if they are particularly fabulous (like the Drag Queen and Martha Stewart sets I've acquired in recent years). I am currently being wooed by these brilliant little numbers from Claudia Varosio:

These are seriously awesome. You've got Margot Tennenbaum with her fur coat and cigarette! David Bowie with his eye patch and platform boots! Squeal! An Edie Beale! And of course, Clint Eastwood makes my day.

Hoping something delightful comes along to make your day, Dear Readers.

{Be sure to check out Claudia's shop. It is just filled with delights!}

These are super cool! I have a friend who cut some vintage ones out and laid them over magenta colored lamay. It looks so cool.

Have a good one!
You Are My Favorite

These are so cool! Love the characters. I loved making paper dolls when I was little but I would get so frustrated because I always cut off the tabs my accident... Not the brightest button in the box when I was a kid.

Just because I'm 37 and still sit on the floor cutting out paper dolls doesn't make a TOTALLY insane lunatic...

does it?

;-D LOVE these!
