Dmarks over at the always interesting Throwawayblog chose this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word. It is one that can go off in all sorts of directions! This week's word is OLD. I decided to show you some of my OLD children's books. They aren't that OLD and they aren't valuable or anything. They are just books that I saved because I like the illustrations or just the whole idea of them. Take a look:
This is a project from a book called How to Make Presents from Odds and Ends - 1972. It used to be cool to use wood and nails and stuff...I notice kids are not encouraged to play with nails much anymore.
This book is called The Curiosity Book - 1968. It mentions that sometimes women wear pants now, especially for activities that require freedom of movement. The 60's were awesome!
Here is a reading text titled All Through the Year - 1966. I like this perfect family.
This is another reading text. It is called Our Good Neighbors - 1955. If those were my neighbors I would probably complain about the smell of their horse and how their dog barks at all hours. haha!
I love this ABC and 123 book - 1955. I don't know if you can tell, but this page says, "H is for Homemaker. Wonderful mother." Aw!
Here are some pretty deranged looking giraffes. They are riding on The Little Circus Train That Led the Parade - 1955.
This is an illustration of Rumplestiltskin from a book called Favorite Fairy Tales - 1953. This book is actually in remarkably good condtion.
Another book in really good condition for it's age is Tenggren's Farm Stories - 1946. This is the cover and it has all kinds of darling illustrations inside.
Thank you for looking at my OLD books with me! Remember...you are only as OLD as you feel! See Dmarks for next week's tag!
