This is Snow White from an older paper doll book, once I put them on the computer I had in mind to sell a lot and eliminate the clutter in my room, now I am sorry I sold some. Then I would have more information on this set.

Where was I when the library was disposing their paper dolls?  Only this wrong with this book is the dolls are not perforated plus the pages are yellowed with age but the costumes and dolls are fine.  The price of this book on the cover is .10@ so it must be from the early 1940’s.  The art work is lovely and even the sister do not look ugly and mean as the story leads you to believe.  I am happy to have this in my collection.

I have been going through all my many years of collecting this and that, whatever appealed to me here and there.  So tonight I decided to post something different.  I sent two of these soft paper books off  today to a younger collector of children’s books.  Later on tonight I came across one I forgot to send.  I started to look through it and wondered how many of us ever take the time to stop from our busy days and think back to our childhood days.  Maybe I am just getting sentimental because next Thursday is Thanksgiving and that was always a family gathering time.

Anyway there is some lovely art work in this book and I know some of you have smaller children that might enjoy seeing some of the pictures.

I will post a paper doll and a greeting card tomorrow.  Going thru items you enjoy and have had for a long time is a little stressful, at least for me.  Sorry but I needed a break.
