  3. So many books, so little time

    I love how clear your shelves are, mine are a riot. Those paper dolls were very popular when we where young and had no money for proper dolls.

      Hah the other shelves are a right mess. These are fairly new so have been kept in an orderly fashion. I've started sorting out the red Billys this weekend but it will be a mammoth task.

    Also… paper dolls! I totally remember those. ^^ They have those tab things on the clothes so you can kinda fold the clothes around them, but then they have nothing on at the back! Hehe… kind of a strange toy, when you think about it.
