Child's Play

One of my childhood favourites


Life was simpler in the 60's and 70's.

As children, we didn't have much.  Toys, were few and far between.  One of my favourite things was this paper doll set.  I can still remember going to the newsagents and picking it out.

'NO SCISSORS NECESSARY  -  CLOTHES JUST PRESS OUT' is what it reads.  How appealing!  It was like magic.

I still remember those days of innocent play.  Life wasn't always fair but the simple things helped us through the dark days.

And for those who may not know, Twiggy's real name is Lesley Hornby - a distant relative of my husband I've been told.  Who knew all those years ago that one of my favourite childhood items was somehow connected to my future.

The world is a mystifying place.
