This is the cover of the Little Chick Chick book (minus the words). Copyright 1950. Even more interesting...it was illustrated by RACHEL. No last name, just Rachel. The mystery deepens as I could not find a writer listed.
Late last week I went estate sale shopping. One right after another. I have to be in the mood to that sort of thing. It only strikes on a rare day. Usually I am one and done. This one brought a bit of my favorite sewing items and I was happy to find what I did.
Oddly enough I found only two hankies in this house and they were in the basement? Fine by me as this Girl Scout one is pure bliss.
A box of buttons on cards. Always a winner.
Darling Dritz sewing basket that reminds me of a Cath Kidston one I have seen online. This one came complete with all the sewing bits.
I am sure there is a way to restore it I am just going to have to think on it for a while.
This sweet chintz picnic tin I found online. It was a want not a need. But it I liked it just the same.
My boys were packed and sent off to camp in the wee hours of the morning. I think I have been packing them for months. This marks the midway point of summer for us. I don't even want to remind you that last year when they went to scout camp it was 107'F. Today it was cooler...105'F! I hate summer........I call these boys my mailmen kids....because they don't look anything alike. Yes, they are both mine. One is my husband, the tall thin one and one is me, the short squatty one. Someone please send some cool air. They have ten days out in the heat with no A/C.
