Book Week :: Day 3 November 12, 2008

Filed under: Random Bits — twlowenstein @ 11:48 pm

Back to vintage.  I found this little beauty on the 3rd day of a rummage sale.  The day they are practically giving stuff away and still there are no takers.  I couldn’t believe it was still there and I stuffed it into my brown paper dollar a bag  and happily made my way out of the dust and slim pickins.  The book is called My Very Own Seasons and it was published in 1967.

And my favorite illustration.  The faces on the snow flakes blobs are fetching.


edit:  Blurry eyed and sleep deprived = not so witty post with depressing photos.  Come back tomorrow for more of the same, if nothing else you can come for the sport of watching my readership TANK!
