What's on my workspace Wednesday - 172......Flappers!!!









Hi Everyone....

hope you are all having a super amazing week....I have been super busy working away on my paper doll book and here is the latest doll that I have all over my workspace this week.....I just love the Flappers from the 1920s.....there is something inspiring about these women...

I just love the attitude of these girls fromway back when.....Flappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms....

They wore lots of make up!!!! love it!!!! I love my lipstick and my make up too.....

I am sharing these with you all and linking to WOYWW......I just love seeing what everyone is working on!!! Super fun and always nice to meet new people in blog land....
Be sure to pop back often to see more of my work!!! and if you want one for your collection you can head to my Shop and pick up one....
Happy Wednesday and Happy Creating Everyone!!!

I have to say that Flappers are just the perfect paper doll material, their little jointed legs just look like they are dancing away! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

I've certainly enjoyed your flapper dolls and thank you for sharing them! They are delightful and so beautifully detailed. :) Really truly super little things! And, as someone else remarked, they are just perfect as paper dolls since the joints make them look like they are dancing. :) Thanks for stopping by my desk and leaving such a kind comment. I do love my workspace, too, and usually find it fairly inspirational! And always pretty messy. lol
