Vintage Ruth E. Newton Paper Dolls!

 Do I Want to sell these? Heck No! lol

 However, I'm not living "rent-free" as of the 1st!
So you can find these super cute and rare HERE SOLD !

 I found them last summer at an Estate Sale in Minneapolis. The box wasn't there, so I wasn't sure who the artist was. Then one day it dawned on me while I was looking at my Ruth E. Newton Puppies and Kittens Book!

 After some research, and some help from a great blog called
The Paper Collector, I was able to confirm that they were in fact by Ruth E. Newton, and not easy to come by.
I found a picture of the box on Pinterest. I couldn't find the original source, so my apologies if this pic belongs to you. Let me know if it's a problem.

 These are the little outfits, desks, and chalkboard for the animals!

And there are tons of fun outfits for the kids! My favorites are the white dress in front, and the red bathrobe with Minnie Mouse!

Sorry Friends, but these will NOT be in the next Market Monday for $5!
lol BooHoo!  :P


  1. lucky dog! These are TOOO cute. I'm glad you are keeping them as I know they are going to a very good home!
    I do believe you stole that quilt in your previous blog post...I am drooling.
    And, thanks for connecting me with the stork lady! She sent me the item and some extras for the shower and she live pretty close to me! You are a sweetie.
