Irish Paper Dolls
vintage flower fairy clip
I'm feeling kinda' blech-y today, so let's have some paper doll fun.
That's sure to cheer me up!
from 'The Victorian Bear Family.
I love his green suit and matching hat!
Next we have a vintage Katy Keene paper doll -
I found her on pinterest.
From an international doll set -
Would you like more paper dolls that are black and white and need coloring?
Let me know!
Here is a paper doll from a little booklet by Dover.
Check out their site, their addy is to the right.
There are more costumes in the paper doll book!
The next one comes from a set called "In Old New York", by Saalfield.
I have shared this book before, but I really love the green dress and cap here,
so I am sharing it again -
I found a new paper doll site that offers copies for free!!
There are many 'trojans' and virus, etc. involved with this site.
We have Kapersky Anti-virus, which captured them all,
making my downloads clean and safe.
If you go to her website and download
(she has hundreds of dolls)
make sure your anti-virus program is up and running!
That said, here is a fun vintage paper doll:
(Remember the warning I gave above.)
This charming paper doll is from a greeting card set
of international dolls, by Current.
I really love Current cards, and this one is a great one!
Today, we visit Ireland!
I have also shared this greeting card before,
but it's been awhile, so I thought you might like the Irish one
for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day Fun!!

Let's practice our jigs!

She would be great to make more costumes for!!
A humorous Irish Doll from Gayle Ferris:
Here's another vintage favorite of mine:
"Colleen of Ireland"
Finishing up today,
and on a personal note,
my etsy shops have seen some sales!!
Not only have I been selling my recycled junk mail bottlecap magnets,
I also sold this pretty necklace:
It's a variation on a daisy chain that I came up with myself.
Beading is such a joy!
Here are a couple of other items I have made
that are still for sale:
"Fairy Bubbles" netted hand beaded necklace
a crochet-look ruffled bracelet with marble closure -
"Forest Fairy Bling"
petite sized crystal beaded bracelet with magnetic closure
Lovin' the shameless advertising here!!
I also sold a couple of my
Collage Paper Painting fine art prints
from original paper collages,
using all recycled junk mail.
Whew, what a mouthful!
Nursery Rhyme "Baa, baa, black sheep"
With all the greens and the cottage and all,
it reminds me of Ireland.
Here is one I made, thinking of Ireland
and an old Irish Song -
"Let Me Glance at Dear Old Ireland Once Again"
Collage Paper Painting
Well, that's it for today.
I really can't put off doing laundry any longer.
My 'craft corner' in the living room is getting to be like a
quickly reproducing amoeba or something!
Here is one of the prints I sold:
That's the fun thing about selling prints -
I can make more and sell them,
so when I sell a print, I'm not 'out'!
Have a green day,
