Ursa Major: Stella the Astronomer Paper Doll

A new paper doll in the shop: Stella the astronomer. 
Stella is a model in late 1920s France. She is known for posing in celestial settings, black and white, crisp moon and wooden stars. Opera set night skies. Posing in these sets increased her passion for what lives in a dark sky, and she took up an amateur pursuit of astronomy. She's tattooed with the constellations. Her favorite, Ursa Major (great bear), is splayed across her chest.
We're supposed to get lots of snow tomorrow! I'm excited. Thanks for all the new years comments, everyone - it was so nice to hear from those of you who have been busy this past school semester!! 
Have a wonderful end to your weekends.
