Halloween Betsy


Betsy McCall is ready for the Halloween fun to begin!

This paperdoll magnet "lives" on my refrigerator door.
Visitors to my kitchen have fun dressing her for the weather and changing seasons.

  8. Betsy McCall...reminds me of my OKC grandma. Would cut out all the paper dolls she would save for me from the McCall's magazine. Many years ago.

  9. Gayle what a sweet idea. Maybe then I would change the clothes and not open the fridge to eat. I am just going to have to steal this one....smiles...Renee

  14. I loved Betsy McCall when I was little! My sister would save the paper dolls from her McCall's magazines every month. I was lucky she had little boys so I always had dibs! Thanks for the memory!

  17. I love this idea. I have some Estelle paperdolls from the Mary Englebreit magazine. Maybe I should try it with them. I love paper dolls. I have way too many, or can you have too many?
