Cute Couple

For this week’s Friday Favorites, I have a unique pair of paper dolls from a Vintage French publication! Ah, paper dolls – loved ’em when I was a kid!

Although this couple share the same last name, they are not married.

She is a “Miss”!

Maybe they’re brother and sister, or cousins?

Perhaps we’re being too nosy. πŸ˜‰

First, we have the young lady in a spiffy swimsuit!

And here’s the rest of her wardrobe.

Next – the gentleman. Is it me, or does this fellow look as if he’s one sandwich short of a picnic? Something about his expression.

I’m not sure the eyeglasses and facial hair do anything to allay my fears. Nice vest though!

Thanks so much for another fun week, Kids!

I am positive I have the best readers in all of blogland and I love every one of ya!

Enjoy the weekend. Shall we all meet back here on Monday? πŸ˜€

  1. I didn’t have paper dolls when I was a kid, I had colorforms. They were kind of like paper dolls but the clothes just stuck on them with static.
    I too enjoyed all the posts this week. Have a great weekend everyone.
    6/3 National Doughnut Day (you can get a free donut at Dunkin and Krispy Kreme today)
    6/3 Repeat Day (I said “Repeat Day”) (Hopefully you will choose to repeat things you enjoy doing)
    6/3 National Egg Day

  2. I think the male cut out reminds me of characters from a Steven King story! SCARY!

    But paper dolls were one of my favorite toys when I was little.

  3. Omgosh! I loved paper dolls too, but then Colorforms came along and I loved them WAY more!

    You brought another great memory back. What will my grandkids remember? Will computer games EVER be nostalgic?!?

  4. I played with paper dolls too.

    And loved jacks. Could play jacks all day. Remember Pick Up sticks. Such fun. OUTDOORS. On the porch playing with the neighborhood kids. Where everybody knew your name. And Mrs Johnson would tattle on you and tell your mother every time you looked like you might do something wrong!!. πŸ˜€

    Have a fun weekend.

  5. Another big fan of colorforms here! And jacks, too!

    And how about hopscotch? Fun to draw the hopscotch outline on the sidewalk, fun to find your rock “marker”, and fun to play the game! πŸ˜€

  6. I had paper dolls, but I have never heard of colorforms. We were big into Barbies and model horses.
    We did very elaborate hopscotch outlines, sometimes they were impossible to actually do!
    We went through a phase where we played marbles all the time,too.
    I loved playing outside doing anything: riding bikes, tag, capture the flag, pogo sticks, stilts, basketball, sidewalk chalk, you name it! It seems like kids are not interested in those kind of things anymore, only video games. πŸ™

    I cannot believe that I missed donut day!!!
