the BEARS' Picnic


the BEARS' Picnic
A (yes another) Rand McNally Junior Elf Book
by Peggy Burrows


A gift from a dear friend...Laurie..aka...Magpie Ethel.


At first glance it appears to be the three little bears.


Father Bear whistles on his way to the office.


Family picnic with happy sunshines.


Puddle wading.


Cake...naps...and knitting!


Quilts and night caps make home the best. 
Thank you Laurie for the most adorable illustrations.
Meet me over at Corey's for another week of Lil' Vintage Story Book.

Such a cute little bear family. Each week I think "I should be sharing some illustrations too"... and then it doesn't happen. Sigh. Maybe one of these days my life will get a little less busy.
