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.

Today we have 3 wonderful outfits for Annarose, she is jumping around here so excited,  I had to cut them out so she could try them on right away.

The first one is a lovely dress, so delicate it has to be a party or church going dress. This is from A Garden of Daisies blog (if you have not already, be sure to see it, she has so many wonderful things to share with all.

The next two are from Inger who lives in Denmark.  One is her original design of a lovely ball gown.

The next shows what a fantastic mind this lady has for designing clothes.  I just love this outfit, so cleaver and the layers are what is in style here in Fort Lauderdale, Fla right now,

A big THANK YOU goes to you both,  this is such fun to see what other people come up with.

I posted Morgan le Fay a while back, a copy of the doll in this book.  At that time I stated I really would like to get this set.  Well patience paid off and someone was selling and I got to buy it.  I really really enjoy it.  On the back of each page Mike told the story of the character. It has many pages, so will be posted over a few nights, with the co-operation of my equipment.

This is another card from Marilyn, she has a basement just filled with lovely cards, stationary, and all kinds of paper items.  This arrived on the day I scheduled my surgery and it was so wonderful for cheering me up  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Marilyn, you always know what will please me and make me happy.

The artist are Jean and Ron Henry –

It is published by Flame Tree Publishing in the United Kingdom. Card #FB 12

On the back  of the card is this extract from A Midsummer-nights Dream by William Shakespeare:

  • Fetch me that flower;
  • The herb I show’d thee once:
  • The juice of it on sleeping eyelids laid,
  • Will make a man or woman madly dote
  • Upon the next live creature that it sees.

The Angel wings and the moon are done in glitter.  Notice the butterfly and the bees.  The stars are raised but I cannot tell if it is done with glitter by feel.  Those tiny fairy faces are all done so they have a different look to each one.

This is a lovely painting, and of course that is what greeting and note cards are, miniature are work.

I have always loved the story of Cinderella, the true rags to riches story.  I found this set at the Tampa paper doll party, it is one I did not have.

What better way than to start out with a Fairy Godmother.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have one?  I also adore the two little mice in this book.  I have Christmas tree ornaments of them also.

Here is Cinderella and her Prince – they are the 2 dolls in the book.

Here are some of Cinderella’s clothes. The tip top of the red hood is cut off, but if you are going to cut this set out, just draw a very small curved line and color it red.

More will follow tomorrow night

What I like about this book also is the Prince has different cloths. So many times when there is a male character in a paper doll set he does not have very many changes.
