These nursery rhyme books from the 30's and 40's are some of my favorite. I have now collected a stack of them through the years. Most of them from antique stores for 4 or 5 dollars and some from estate sale when I have been lucky. They are usually cloth like in feel and the size of a big coloring book. All of the images are brightly colored even after all these years. Those cherub faces and fairy like details do me in every time...I think I will be sad when December rolls around and I don't have a reason each month to revisit the pages.
Lucky for me it is only September. I still have four months to go with these innocent faces and fanciful stories. This month is no exception Robin Hood to the rescue. Classic tale of good versus bad, maidens and Kings, castles and villages. What could be better.
This time I used thread and needles...for the bow string and arrow pack.
It is just a happen-stance that the vintage bingo marker says B-one.
A bulls eye on the back for a classic finish.
When my oldest was just a toddler he would watch this Disney movie in a loop. He loved Friar Tuck. Those Disney songs would stick in my head for months at a time on the same loop.
One of the tags have been safely tucked into my tag swap box. He is right at home with the other months of nursery rhymes. They are ready to be delivered in December...
...to my dear tag swap partner Miss Betty at She's Sew Pretty.
Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater is my pick for October, but with no orange paper in my preselected lot this is sure to get interesting....
