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. 😉
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? 😀
Boy am I dumb!
I forgot this was Columbus Day Weekend, a 3-day weekend for Sir Beads! Usually, whenever dear husband doesn’t have to go to work, I take a day off from the blog, as well.
But! I promised you on Friday I’d be here – so here I am.
Hello there! 😀
Honestly, Kids, sometimes when I think back on the simple things that brought joy when I was little, I wonder if today’s kids would ever understand.
Do you think after you’ve had a laptop, a cell phone, a video camera, etc., you could ever be impressed with a piece of colorful paper?

But impressed we were with paper dolls. Whether they were in a magazine or from a “store-bought” booklet, it was an enjoyable couple of hours to carefully cut out all of the little pieces and play fashion coordinator for the doll. I remember I once had a set that was magnetic – oh la la! – that was high tech! No paper tabs were needed!
The page above is from a vintage French publication. Isn’t she sweet? If you decide to print, cut them out, and play with them – well, who could blame you? 😉 (Remember to click to enlarge, first!)
