I’m here!

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?

Paper Dolls

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!)
