Paper Doll

 !! GIVEAWAY ENDED !!

Paper Dolls have been around for a long time. These beauties have been made in several different countries and little girls have enjoyed them for many years. Before the paper dolls were made many young child cut pictures out of catalogs and played with them.

Some families were like ours and really could not afford these things when the children were young and the catalog was the only resource available for play dolls! Stick dolls and many others have been played with over the years but the paper doll was and still is a favorite for many.

There are lots of people who have a collection of these beautiful dolls and collect many different varieties of them. McLoughlin Brothers, was founded in early 1800 and was the largest maker of paper dolls. They sold out to Milton Bradley in the 1920’s.

    I love your site and the things you have on your site. thanks for such good recipes. and all the work you put in to your site.I was getting the eclairs and chocolate pudding recipe tonight.
    but i was thinking of something i read on your site about drippings and saving grease. I think we need to go back to saving and cooking with the lard and such. I can not make bread like my mom’s She used lard i use Crisco or butter or olive oil . it does not turn out as good as my mom’s ever.

    My mother was raised by her single mother and my great aunt. But both worked so my mother was bustled off to a convent during the week. She only had paper dolls to play with since they were easy to transport back then. This was on the late 1920’s. She saved them and when our daughter Apryl turned 6, her grandmother gave them to her. She died the next year. But it got our daughter started and now she is 41 and collects and still plays with them.
