Bonnie Hanson

Bonnie Hanson of Carver, Mass., was a big winner at the Competition.

Bonnie had last attended a paper doll convention in Atlanta, I believe. She called me when she saw the announcement of the convention in one of the antique weeklies (we sent press releases out to several). She had fond memories of her last convention, but somehow, she fell out of the convention loop. We're glad she's back in!

I know Garth will send along his comments to fill us in on Bonnie's wins; they'll be posted in the comments section, so be sure to click on the comments link right below this post.

Bonnie also displayed her handcrafted Shirley Temple tribute.
