At last, a new paper doll, this one just in time for Christmas. Two more ginger cookies to dress. Please welcome Cinnamon and Spice. They are all ready for the coming holiday. Enjoy.

Cinnamon Paper Doll

Cinnamon is all set for Christmas Eve with her little green nightgown with it’s furry trim. She will be festive in her little red dress Christmas Day and after opening her presents she can go out and make snow angels in the snow wearing her bright red snowsuit.

Spice Paper Doll

Spice will wait for Santa in his green pajamas and be all dressed up in his new blue jeans and t-shirt on Christmas Day. Later he will go out and play in the snow, maybe he will make a snow fort. Spice will stay warm and cozy in his bright green snowsuit.

More vintage ladies for your embroideries

Two more pages of Godey Ladies for you. These ladies along with the earlier page are all from the same vintage McCall’s transfer book. I love them all. They remind me of “Gone With the Wind” with the ladies and their long, hooped, swishing skirts.

Vintage Godey Ladies

A set of tea towels embroidered with these lovely women would make a great hostess gift to take along with you when you attend your next holiday party. One could also adorn a journal cover as well.

Vintage Godey Ladies

Redwork or bluework could make your lady stand out on a crisp pure white cotton or muted earth colours on an ecru background would give them a vintage appeal.
