Funday Book


I am so head over heels with this book I found! Its called Funday Book by Frances W. Keene. I couldn't find a publishing date, but it does say it is a Sea Horse Fun Book on the back. It is in perfect condition. No marks, and none of the activites have been done.

I might scan some so I can have them printed on heavy cardstock and do some of the scissor cut outs (I'll share those when I scan them) I am so in love with the wishbone kids who appear several times through out the book. The clowns are pretty amazing too.

Now I want to find all the Sea Horse Fun Books! The back lists some gems like Hobby Funbook, Fun Around The World, and the Toy Fun Book.

Mother Goose


Just a quick break from Thanksgiving posts to share a beautiful book that I found at the thrift shop. Actually on this trip I found about five books! They had a stack of vintage children's books on a shelf behind the counter (they always do this when they think something is old an valuable, it's kind of annoying haha) I asked if I could see them and how much they were. They had them priced around $2.99 a book (kid's books are normally .25 or fill a bag for $2.00) But of course $2.99 is still a steal. Tom and I picked out our favorites including this beautiful big hardback edition of Mother Goose.
Mother Goose
Illustrators Fred D. Lohman and Ethel Hays
published by The Saalfied Company 1941

It looks like Ethel Hays did all the color illustrations which are so damn fabulous! There are also small black and white illos through out the book, and while these are great too---those color full page images are just wonderful!
