My computer problem apparently was only caused by a mouse that was not working right any more so son#2 recommended a good one on Amazon which I then ordered. I was a little short of the required $35 that would give me free shipping so I browsed to see what I might order. I found these adorable paper dolls. They are inspired by Cicely Mary Barker's flower fairies! I have several of CMB's little flower fairy books and am always on the look-out for others.
This cute book is published by Frederick Warne Publishing... the same publishers that have published Beatrix Potter's books. Isn't that great?
I'll show you a few of the inside pages. You'll notice that the outfits are made so that they slip over the doll's head instead of just those finicky tabs that used to frustrate me so when I was a girl. Also, this gives the paper doll a back as well as a front of the outfit.
I don't know if I'll detach the dolls and their clothes just yet. I'm going to enjoy them as they are for now. Did you love paper dolls when you were a little girl?
