Home again, Home again, Jiggity Jig…



I have been in Minnesota and Wisconsin for the last two weeks…I had a wonderful time, but I am glad to be home…

I have SO much to share, all kinds of wonderful photos…..

Give me a few days to get it all on the computer!

I was lurking on Blogger while I was gone, but I still have a lot of people to visit…:)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Free Vintage Paper Dolls


I was unable to sleep last night and was surfing the web…look what I found!

Yes!  All of the vintage Paper Dolls we all love…FREE!!!!  You are allowed to print them out…here is one set I love…









Here are their directions….

How to Print the Free Paper Dolls:

For most free paper doll sets there will be a jpg photo of each page.  You can simply right click on this photo and use the Save As option to save the image to your computer.  You can then open the saved image in any photo editing program and print, resize, touch up, and manipulate them in any number of ways.  Alternatively, you can right click on the image and chose copy and then go to a program such as Microsoft Word and right click and Paste the image and print from there.

For some of our paper dolls there will be a PDF file for the whole set for you to be able to print easily and quickly. These can be found on our Free Printable Paper Dolls page.  You will need Adobe Acrobat to open and print from there, but that is a free program that most people have on their computers.

We ask that you do not sell them, and that if you share them that you tell others where you got them. In other words, share the love - we love referrals!

We purchase many of the dolls ourselves from eBay and hope to share more and more of our collection with other lovers of these dolls over time. Please check back often as we will be adding new dolls almost daily!

We would also welcome your PDF and jpg files of your collections to share with other fans of this wonderful hobby.


They also have a free newsletter you can sign up for.

I think I would put this on a zip drive and go to a Kinko’s type store, get them made one really good paper….

I am NOT going to talk about how much I have spent on originals…:):)

Art from the 1950’s


Hi Everyone!

I can’t tell you how many times I have seen this print…


I think it reminds those of us that were born in the 40’s and 50’s about our youth….the images they sold over and over….vintage, happy, not a care in the world….

I looked up the artist and his name is Art Frahm.   His pin-up art always seemed to be losing their panties!

I just laughed when I saw these….when was the last time you knew someone who kept losing her underwear in public places?  Talk about every man’s fantasy…lol  I am sure this was very risqué for the times.

He also did some wonderful women with their clothes on….





Another artist I love…Henry Hintermeister…such innocence! I believe this policeman was called “Officer Friendly”








Who doesn’t remember the crossing guards when we were little?  My brother was actually one!  He was very proud of that…:)

I am always looking to add to my school time collection…all of these images came from Pinterest. 

Have a great week!
