    I guess I have had my Grammie on my mind lately, and with all the quilting magazines I have...got me remembering how I used to love playing with the Betsy McCall paper dolls that Grammie used to save me in her McCall's magazines. Now, here I am grown up and buying McCall's Quilting magazines.
    Do any of you out there remember the paper dolls, and having fun spending lots of hours playing with them also?
    Happy Quilting!!

    My mom use to buy the magazine every August - that is when I had my yearly permanent for the school year. Betsy kept me entertained as my mom rolled those stinky rods!

    Oh, I loved Betsy McCall. My mom subscribed in the '50's and my sisters and I always got the doll out right away.

    Check out this link:

    You can print the doll pages from the magazines!!
