Paper, Scissors, Rock
Abigail is from a second set of vintage paper dolls whose clothes are reproductions of fashions published from 1867-1898 in Harper's Bazar (by the way, that is the correct spelling of Bazar; I double-checked). I thought of constructing my own paper dolls from the images in the magazines in my archive - and may do it at some point - but I liked the idea of using commercially-produced dolls.
Oh, the rock chart/map in the background is from a trio of over-sized booklets I spotted a few weeks ago and passed up, because of a vow to cut back on buying maps. But once this series idea arose, well, I knew exactly where to get more "rocks."
