Pat makes the neatest ‘paper’ dolls. They are actually made out of wood so I took a couple of photos this time to share.

You can see the little peg in front that helps the clothes attach to her.

Then I got my book out that Linda sent and helped Shirley into her snowsuit so that she could play in the snow.

Precious! I used to watch her as a child and I think I've seen every movie she was ever in. Paper dolls were about the only dolls I ever played with. I was a tomboy.

Vee said...

Oh how cute! Shirley Temple was such a star even in her adult years. 'Always thought it was sad that her young adult films did not get the praise that her childhood films did :)

Diane,
Just catching up on all your posts, and I loved this one because paper dolls were such a favorite in our family. And Shirley Temple, what a nice gift this is. I came across a quote the other day that I think you'd like:

"I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph." ~Shirley Temple

Have a lovely rest of the week, Diane.
