Memorial Day


The 2018 Paper Doll Convention in Seattle


This picture was taken in October 2016, when Micheal and Sharry O'Hara were catching up on Broadway shows during a NYC visit. Rob and I met them for a drink and it was great fun talking about all things convention!

This year's theme is Entertainment. The dress-up nights will be a blast! 

I'll be doing a presentation on vaudeville, and reviewing many of the famous stars who got their start in that old-time showcase of talent. 

I'll also be one of the competition judges, so please make sure you bring that outstanding example from your collection. Anne Donze is overseeing the competition and there are many fun categories. 

It's not too late to register to attend in person or to receive an outstanding array of souvenirs!

Harry & Meghan by Rudy Miller




What in blazes am I doing up so early? I do have to work a conference at 8 a.m., so thought I'd peek into the festivities "across the pond" as they say...

You can order this fabulous paper doll set here.

Some Morgantown paper doll pictures


Is it May already? Thank goodness! But I want to make sure I post a few pictures from the Morgantown luncheon before I dive into the Seattle convention. I've posted these on our Facebook group page, but just in case you haven't joined us there, here's a peek.

Above and below, Raffle Table items....


Grab bags -- boxes full of cut paper dolls--are among the most popular items on the raffle table.



I love this compilation of single-sheet paper dolls that Martha Raively put together.


Someone on Facebook shared information about this new set, which I purchased for a Raffle Table donation: wrapping paper with 4 paper doll tags. But I can't imagine cutting up this lovely sheet or folding it to wrap a gift. Who could resist carefully cutting it up and dressing the dolls? The company that produces this item is call "beve!"

Morgantown Luncheon, 2018


Well another swell party has come to an end! I've posted a few pictures on our Facebook group page.  As time permits, I'll post a few here, too.
I'll let you know as soon as we have a date for next year's event.
Meanwhile, The Seattle Paper Doll Convention is a mere three months away!
