Paper dolls

Did you play with paper dolls when you were young? I did. I've still got a vintage one tucked behind my buffet and hutch that my Grandmother gave me when I was young. I've never managed to bring myself to open it. Yesterday I stumbled upon these sweet Paper Dolls. They are lovely and it brings back so many memories to see Hannah playing with them as I did.

So far it's been a good start to the week, but not at all how I planned. My Mondays are usually reserved for a top to bottom house cleaning but I had a severe case of procrastination instead. I did manage to clean the oven and do some baking!

Anyway, no little pixie came in the night and did it for me so I'd better get back to it now :)


  1. They are gorgeous! You won't believe it, but I printed out a sheet of paper dolls & clothes yesterday. I thought of showing them to Lachlan and playing with them (as part of his garage & cars!!! :)...I think I need a little girl ;)), but they are still here beside the computer.....not as cute as the ones you found thought!

  2. lol... I was thinking if you found that pixie that cleans houses... send her to mine! I am still at work so not much attention being paid to that home atm...

    Lovely paper dolls Ruth. I gave some to Hannah - or was that you?! She still plays with them - when we are home.

  3. I used to love playing with the paper dolls and had lots of different clothes and accessories for them. It's nice to see that even with all the toys children get these days something so simple is still enjoyable.

    Ps: I'd give up of the cleaning fairies - I've been waiting for years now and they still haven't come!

  4. I loved paper dolls when I was a little girl!!!!

    Procrastination is my best friend!!! I'm trying to replace her .... albeit unsuccessfully!!!
