In the 60's Saalfield revamped a Cinderella paper doll set that was originally published in 1950. The dolls were modernised although Prince Charming looks remarkedly like Prince Valiant. Apart from a couple of dresses that were not included, the clothing is identical to the original set. The whole book - dolls and clothes - was printed on card stock and everything could be punched out very easily.
I could only find three of my punched out dolls - one of the wicked sisters seems to have been mislaid. For that reason I included the scans I have of the cover pages at the start of this post. I don't have any scans of the clothing pages.
Daffodil Day - 25 March
Friday is Daffodil Day (I'm not sure how many countries participate in this.) Silk daffodils and pin-on daffodil badges are sold by the Irish Cancer Society with a large number of volunteers collecting for the charity. Daffodils are everywhere at the moment, brightening up every corner of the city.
I think mommy swan is sitting on her eggs at the moment. Proud dad is strutting his stuff waiting for this year's new arrivals.
