Oh Betty WHEW you scared me there...I didn't know what all Jimmy had convinced you girls do...
Glad you retreated to crafting in the floor :)
Everything looks wonderful today!

Oh how I loved paper dolls! I confess I WAS a girly-girl. I STUNK at sports, but when I grew up, my athletic abilities started to appear (karate & skiing mostly). Just wish the tomboys that teased me in school could see me now! lol

Jimmy, Jimmy wherever you are....thank you.....you are responsible for all these things of beauty.......

Hi Betty! Thanks for commenting on my blog so that I could find yours! I have only read this first one and can't wait to read more! I, too, have football stories.....my favorite shirt in the 5th grade said "Most Valuable Football Player". (lol) I hated pink and dresses or highheels were out of the question! My, how things change......

What super cute paper dresses! Love that black and pink one!

What a turning point summer for you ... the summer you discovered your inner artist. I would have played ball with you :) Then we could have retreated to the floor in the evenings to craft cool things - and no boys allowed :)

Thank you for your sweet words about my scarf!

I used to be a boy, too. But you already know that :) Those aprons turned out adorable... I can see the mom from "Lassie" wearing one :)

Hi Betty,
First of all I love paper dolls and I love the dresses that you made. Second of all, I love fabric and gingham and strawberries and vintage style, and I love your aprons to bits. And third of all, I love your story and how you told it. Creativity is such a gift and enhances our lives so much. And Betty, you certainly are blessed to have such creativity in your life. It's always great to come by for a visit. Janice

Hello Betty, I am so glad you decided to join us girls,you are a girly girl now for sure! Anyway I am so glad you did. Love your pretty aprons and the little paper dresses. My Mom tells me stories about when she was a girl ,cutting out paper dolls from old catalogs and such . She also had four brother's and didn't have a sister until she was 12yrs old. I remember playing paper dolls as a child and all the fun I had. I have a sister four yrs older than I ,but she didn't like girly things. I had a good time playing by myself tho.
Blessing,Shelley

It's good to be a girly-girl every now and then ;)

Betty, I came late to "froo-froo-girly-girl" too... I'm thinking what the tomboy brings to your designs is a sense of balance, derring-do, and layers of charm. Perfect.

I think you should celebrate being a girly girl! When I was a little I remember tearing around on my bike with my two cousins (both boys) and playing ball with them all summer - at some point I too became a girly girl but wouldn't mind tearing around on a bike again!
