Delightful Dolls.

Somehow, I don't remember paper dolls being this cool - or this beautiful - when I was a little girl. Maria Dubrovskaya's gorgeous hand-painted creations have long been a favorite of mine (and yes, that's a "deer with beer" below), 

and I love these winged horses by Emma Kidd. (I'm also a fan of this happy guy; he makes me laugh.)

And how great are these customizable figures by Jordan Grace Owens? She makes ones of pets, too.

See more here, here, and here. Happy Thursday! 


  1. Those are so cool! I love the customizable ones, they would be cute for a wedding!

  2. Those are awesome! I had paper dolls when I was younger and they were kind of fun, but after awhile it was kind of like "eh." But the customizable ones are cool! And I love that drunk moose :)

  3. I <3 all of them...except the people figures...but that's just me. Hope you have a merry and bright holiday season :)

  4. These are cool! Deer with Beer is awesome. Indonesia has a traditional paper doll called Wiyang and they are used for shadow doll theater. I like the modern looking ones you featured here! The customized ones are so cute!

  5. Those are so cute. I used to love to play with paper dolls (and the Barbie fashion plate thing).

  6. Angela, perhaps for yours? :)

    Tara, I do, too!
