(This is a work in progress.  I am still in the process of getting pictures of all
my paperdolls on this site. So I hope you will come back again soon.)

A birthday card  from my Grandmother  when I was 9 or 10 was
the start of my paperdoll collection.    1967?  1968?

Teri Pettit- Paper Doll Land


  1. What a fabulous collection! I didn't have access to many paper dolls when I was growing up so I made my own. I drew each one and then drew their outfits. I spent hours playing with them. I'm glad I had an imagination and was able to do that.
    I drew and painted a lot when I was growing up, but then my whole family did that. Thank you for sharing. They are all so cute.

    Christmas blessings,

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Sandi. I used to draw clothes too. (I think you can see some of them in that first picture with Sherrie.) It's so important to foster imagination and creativity during childhood, and it sounds like you had an ideal one.

  2. Cleared out my mom's house last summer and found some of my paper dolls and some of hers. One of mine actually has a little hair wig. So cute. I love your collection.

    1. Thank you! I'm so glad you found your childhood paperdolls! You'll have to share some pictures. I do have a girl scout paperdoll that has real hair. (as in not paper.) I don't think I have her pictured here, yet. I need to get the rest of my dolls photo'd/scanned and up on this page soon.

  3. Wow! You sure have a great collection!!!! I love them, I have a few tucked away I'll have to do a small post on them! Thank you for sharing:)

    1. Betty, I hope you will share your paperdolls. I can't wait to see them!

  4. You knew I'd eventually find this page! love it. Was catching up with Marge8's blog and found your link. Work has been a bit crazy and I don't visit fellow bloggers as much as I would like.

    1. Thanks for stopping by to visit my paperdoll page, Linda. I'm glad you like it! I enjoy my visits to visit your, blog, too.


THANK YOU for your thoughtful comments. Replies to your questions will be posted here, so be sure to check back soon. Have a wonderful day! - Gayle, Garden Of Daisies
