Paper Dolls in Underwear

Hi! This time the challange in Three Muses is incorporate UNDERWEAR somewhere in my collage. I've though in paper dolls, after all they come in underwear to be dressed with those lovely outfits. It has seemed to me that would be interesting to pick only vintage small girls paper dolls and compare how they've changed over the time. Unfortunately I coudn't find out the names and year of some of them, so I made them up.

If you like paper dolls visit Tery's Paper Dolls Scans.

What about a cruise?

James and Gwendolyn couldn't choose where to spend their honeymoon. After a while, they decided to take a round-the-world cruise. Only problem was packing for the one-year-long trip. Problem solved, they had to get an extra cabin only for their luggage. Gwendolyn was a very cautious tourist.

Hi, dear friends. This is my entry for Take a Word: Travel. Thanks for looking.

Lace for Audrey

This is my contribution for this week theme at Take a Word (please, enlarge to see the details). More than an icon of beauty, Audrey Hepburn was a fashion icon. She could look boyish or extremely feminine depending on the photographer's intention. For this piece I was looking for her princess persona. The bigger photo is from the stage play Gigi (1961) and the smaller is one of her shoots for the movie My Fair Lady (1964).
